§ We came to this world to LIVE OUT LOUD!
Why I’m Excited About Getting Older!
I am 48 years old and I’m excited about getting older.
I have spent the past couple of months interviewing amazing women for my Extraordinary Life After 40 Summit – experts in health, relationships, sex, healing, career changes, money, spirituality and hormones. I have learned so much and most importantly, have become so inspired and excited about getting older.
Turns out, that as long as we take care of our health and try to grow our consciousness, everything gets better as we age.
We know ourselves, like ourselves and grow to love and accept ourselves more and more.
We get clear on what we want, heal our wounds, set better boundaries and create more fulfilling, joyful relationships.
We create financial stability (and even abundance) and do more of what we love to do.
We stop working purely for money or ego satisfaction or because “that’s what we are supposed to do” and start following our soul’s calling and purpose.
We apparently have way better sex!
I have to admit this last one caught me by surprise because I have bought into the societal belief that great sex is for the young, hot and flexible. Yet, the sex experts I interviewed have assured me that not only does sex peak for women in their 60’s and 70’s (as we learn what pleases us and how to truly please our partner, become adept at communicating our desires and no longer have kids in the house interrupting us at the most inopportune times) but we can also move from the purely physical orgasms of our youth to whole body spiritual orgasms (which we can have even without any physical touch).
This alone is enough for me to look forward to a decade or so from now when all of my girls are out of the house. My husband and I can just stock up on the Kama Sutra and tantric courses and let the exploration begin.
And I’m not joking.
The same goes for spiritual expansion, money, our contribution to the world – these are all just raw materials to expand our consciousness, our wholeness, our ability to love ourselves and the world unconditionally.
What I realized in this process is that all of the adventure we can ever need lies within us.
Growing our consciousness not only uplevels every area of our lives but turns life into an amazing adventure.
Which keeps us young at heart.
Which makes life get better and bettert.
I am launching the summit on October 21st and I can’t wait to share it with you.
In the meantime, what do you like about getting older?
