Why Midlife Clarity is the Key to Get Unstuck

Midlife clarity is one of those things that can seem painfully elusive when you want to get unstuck. midlife clarity

When you’re a woman over 50, feeling stuck may feel foreign to you; you may not have felt this way in decades.

It makes sense when you think about it.

My guess is that you’ve been pretty dialed in for a long time now.

Back in the day – likely in your mid-20s – you got pretty clear about what you wanted.

And then you set out to create it.

Maybe this sounds similar to your life’s path: 

  • Went to college and/or some specialized training
  • Started working in the field you trained for
  • Got married or had a serious relationship
  • Started a family and/or got some pets
  • Established a home
  • And were surprised at how time just flew by over the next few decades.

Of course there were probably a few forks in the road and some hiccups along the way, but the gist of this is that you’ve known what you wanted to do for quite some time now.

But when you hit midlife, things can tend to change a bit.

The clarity that you were so used to isn’t quite so clear any more.

I like to think of this midlife phase of life like this:

When you were younger and got clear about what you wanted, it was like gazing at the crystal clear blue waters of the Caribbean. You came up with a plan and set it in motion, for the next few decades.

Now, however, it’s more like wading through the mud of a fresh water lake, stirring up a dark swirl of muckety muck….and it’s certainly not clear! You’re deep into the stuckness.

I’m just sayin’…

What you want now is more of that crystal blue water!

If you’re feeling stuck and completely blank about what you want in your next chapter, you’re not alone, my friend.

It’s pretty common.

It’s also pretty common to be frustrated about how long it’s taking to get the clarity you’re craving!

Here’s the thing: Clarity about what you want is the key to creating the next chapter of your life.

And if you’re like me, you want it to be a fun page turner!

At the core of the “midlife clarity concept” is identifying what you actually want.

You might be wondering why this seemingly obvious task of feeling connected to what you desire in your life is so challenging.

There are lots of reasons, but a common experience is the discomfort around putting yourself first.

As the extremely competent, overachieving woman that you are, you’re probably really good at putting everyone else first and making sure they have what they want.

You’ve been doing this for years!

Getting used the idea that you can start doing this for yourself can be an uncomfortable adjustment.

It might be so foreign to you that even allowing your thoughts about what you really want bubble up to the top of your consciousness.

If you’re successful in actually becoming aware of what you want, there’s another potential challenge lurking….

What we’re talking about now is actually dedicating time and resources to your happiness.

While one might think that this would be a welcomed change, you may have some difficulty taking the next step and making this commitment to yourself.

Your resistance may just get in your way.

So there you have it. These are just a few reasons why midlife clarity can be a problem for you.

GREAT NEWS! The solution to helping you find midlife clarity is here!

I’m sure you would agree, you’ve probably spent enough time feeling stuck about what you’re going to do in your next chapter – whether it’s because of something like a milestone birthday, empty nest, taking care of aging parents, retirement or anything like that.

It’s time to stop wasting time and get clear now.

THE MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION IS: Do you even think it’s possible to figure out what you want – because you don’t think you have enough time to dream big at your age, or maybe you don’t even think you deserve to put yourself first?

Let me share something with you…YES IT IS!

Picture this:

You snap your fingers, and…

  • You’re crystal clear about what your priorities are so that you can take the next steps.
  • You finally feel free because you know how to move forward.
  • You see that you have plenty of time to have more fun and meaning in your life!

After working with amazing midlife gals like you now since 2025, I have a good handle on what you need to do to get clear about what it is you actually want in your life.

It’s based on determining your priorities.

Once you get clarity around this, it’s way easier to keep moving forward!
