This past weekend it finally happened. I knew it was coming. It was inevitable. I turned the big 4-0.
Yep, November 2nd was my 40th bday.
(My husband, sister and mom and dad threw me a huge, rocking bday party 2 weekends ago to celebrate. I wore a fabulous bright red maternity dress and danced my tushy off while my husband played live music and peeps gobbled down taco truck grub. My hubby even serenaded me with the song he wrote for me, Walk This World With You. The same song he used to propose to me 12 years ago. Gush. Gulp. Gratitude.)
But, 40th birthdays can also feel like an ominous portal into mid-life. The time when people go a little nuts and throw away marriages, careers they’ve spent 20 years building and end up with a Porsche in the driveway of the home they have 3 mortgages on.
Instead of doing all that I’m choosing to turn the midlife crisis into a midlife awakening. I made a short video to show you how:
No matter what your age, chances are there is something in your life that could use a perspective shift. A re-frame if you will. Watch the video and use it to do just that.

P.S. I first heard the term mid-life awakening from my dear friend and soul sister, the transformational artist, Shiloh Sophia McCloud. Shiloh is an astonishing human being filled with tribal wisdom and modern day magic.
We are co-leading a breakthrough process via live stream on November 15th, called Awakened Woman. It will be a day filled with breakthroughs, community, laughter, truth and painting. Won’t you join us from anywhere in the world and awaken your truth?
