Welcome to another episode of the Women in the Middle podcast!

Are you comfortable feeling vulnerable in midlife? Probably not. Discomfort is what’s common but most of us don’t realize why it’s so important to embrace vulnerability, even when you’re naked and afraid sometimes.

Today’s episode is a funny one, but also drives an important point home about the importance of vulnerability to living a meaningful, purposeful life without regrets.

It’s no surprise that this topic is especially relevant in midlife as we age and sometimes need more or different help than before.  I share several stories about how being naked and afraid in common life situations raised my awareness of feeling vulnerable. Today’s examples include being in pain and being pregnant, but there many more in everyday life for sure.

Learn three tips to get more comfortable with vulnerability in general, especially when you’re not “in it.” As much as you may have tried to avoid this truth, managing your mind and your emotions better are an incredibly essential part of you thriving in midlife. If you want to do midlife on purpose, embracing vulnerability is key part of your journey!

Enjoy this episode!
