For me being in my 40’s has had a positive effect. For the first time in my life I feel comfortable in my own skin. It makes me wonder what was I missing in my teens, 20’s and 30’s?
I have come to a realization lately that my level of comfort was only due to a safe environment I crafted for myself. Self doubt never had a chance to creep back into my life. My career and friends were hand selected to ensure safety and success. Anyone or anything that altered those positive feelings were avoided. What I was missing in my 20’s and 30’s was never actually found.
My realization has come about due to a career change, my children growing up and lovely menopause. I feel blessed to have this sudden revelation. I had a false confidence of me but plan to develop a real sense of who I am. As I work on me I hope to strengthen my relationships with my family and friends. And maybe I will even allow some new relationships to enter my life!
My first step is to read and listen to some great books for real life tips. I am actually juggling two books now. You are a BADASS by Jen Sincero and The Power Playbook by La La Anthony. The Badass book I am reading by hard copy. The Power Playbook I am listening to in audio on my way to work and while I grow my eBay business in the evenings and weekends.
My next step is to share how I evolve. They say “sharing is caring.” Sharing my own grown each Sunday may create a difference for someone in similar shoes. So if you are an eBay customer who follows my online clothing store or if you have just stumbled on this article I hope you enjoy and grow with me.
