After a divorce, children grown, retiring from my job. What is my purpose in life? I feel I’m not productive anymore.
Sounds like it is time for some self-discovery!
Start making lists of your gifts, skills and values. What do you love to do? What groups of people do you love to work with/influence? What do you NOT want to do? Do you have dreams that have been put on the back burner? It’s time to focus on them!
Then begin thinking of your legacy—not the one that you have at this point, but the one you will create over the next 30-40 years. What do you want to be remembered for when you are 90 years old? This vision will give you some direction for your future, and will give you some clues about your purpose.
Most midlife women find they want to lead a more meaningful life. Success is defined differently at this stage, and it is more important to leave our mark on the world by changing lives than to have financial wealth or career status. Connecting with purpose is a huge step for women over 50, and it will definitely change your life and your level of self-fulfillment.
If I can be of service to you in your quest, please let me know!
Wishing you all the best!
