Welcome to another episode of the Women in the Middle podcast!
A “minisode” is a cute little episode. It’s about half the length of a typical episode. A quick dose of insight especially for women in the middle.
This week, I want to talk to you about a concept I’ve been working with called “regret-proofing your life.” One thing’s for sure. Nobody wants to have regrets; and you will absolutely regret having regrets, so it’s critically important to do something about it. This is not about regrets you may already have. Regret-proofing is about making a big effort to really think through what you want in different areas of your midlife and make sure you don’t have regrets.
Awareness is the first part. As midlife women, most of us have been so busy holding it all together for decades that we haven’t had the time to prioritize thinking about ourselves and what we really want. But, you should really start regret-proofing now. Life really is short and it’s time to do this important reflection.
This minisode reviews three key areas of your life that are just waiting for some serious regret-proofing attention: 1) your professional contribution; 2) your relationships with others and 3) your relationship with yourself. Mindfulness strategies and thought work will help you dig deep and see what you’re really thinking in terms of what you want in these three areas.
You’ll be hearing more about the importance of regret-proofing your life in upcoming episodes of the podcast. This minisode is meant to be a bit of a kick-start to get the regret-proofing party started!
