Are you thriving or just surviving?
How do you feel right at this moment? Happy, contented or unfulfilled and feeling lost?
You have reached the Third Act of Life or as Carl Jung suggests the ‘Afternoon of Life’, but are you making the most of it or just going through the motions each day? This can be such an exciting time of life, many of us are entering a new phase of life when we stop working full time, the children have flown and we can now concentrate on ourselves.
However, many of us, including myself can struggle with the changes to our lifestyle. We might have retired from work but we haven’t retired from life. The good news is that this is quite normal and you can find a life that is full if you have the right attitude and give yourself some time to adjust.
It’s time to take a reality check and start thriving because we only get one shot so we better make the most of it.
In this episode of the Women Living Well After 50 Podcast, my guest, Debbie Harris from Deb’s World and I discuss the idea of thriving in life, especially after 60. Deb selected Thrive as her Word of the Year for 2024.
During the episode we discussed:
- Why Deb selected Thrive as her WOTY
- What Thriving really means
- How Deb will implement the word Thrive to guide her in 2024
- Different ways we can thrive
- The barriers that stop us from thriving
