Finding Fulfillment in Your 40's






“Your Life Should Be About Finding the Intersection of The World’s Greatest Need and Your Greatest Passion.” Darren Schwindaman

So here we are in our 40’s, now what?

Have you had these thoughts?

I don’t know what I expected life to be about when I turned 40 and honestly, I don’t think I gave it much thought. It was not until I had my a-ha moment a couple of years ago that I realized a void in my life. I felt empty. I was not content. It was a feeling that was unexplainable. I knew there was something missing in my life and I was on a mission to find out exactly what it was. I needed a solution to bring my life into full completion.

How Can We Expect A Man To Love Us, When We Don’t Love Ourselves?




“Find yourself FIRST…like yourself FIRST…love yourself FIRST… & friendship & love will naturally find YOU.” 
 
Mandy Hale

Interesting title we have here.

Have you ever asked yourself this question?

Lately, this has been a topic among women at work, my circle of friends and oddly enough, strangers. The way I see it, until we learn to love ourselves, a man cannot truly love us in the fashion we want to be loved.

Yes, he could love us, but really, would it be the way we want to be loved? Or, would it be his twisted up way of love? I don’t know about you but I want to be loved in a fashion that’s true, genuine, and above all else, Godly.

When Settling Is Not An Option Anymore

 
Have you ever waken up and had a new perspective on life?

It’s like an A-ha Moment that occurs, giving you new insight to your life.
I’m sure there’s someone out there that can relate to what I’m talking about. It’s like a light bulb that goes off in your mind and depending on what’s going on  in your life, that light bulb radar is telling you that settling in a relationship is not an option anymore or it’s time I take this leap of faith and go for it.

Not too long ago, a friend and I were having lunch and she mentioned she had an epiphany. I’m sure she’s going to talk about me when she reads this, but as she was talking I zoned in because it sounded like it was about to get real interesting.

4 "Selfies" To Loving YOU

 

When I look at some of today’s young adults I see a lot of self-hatred.  To be honest, I will just put it out there; I will say there are mature adults as well that have these feelings. When I speak of self-hatred I’m speaking of low self-esteem, no ambition, no self- love, and not feeling worthy of having someone to love you.

All of these traits open the door to negativity towards an individual. It allows a person to take advantage of you, talk to you any kind of way, as well as talk about you right in your face with no regard for how you feel.
 
When I think about the “Art of Self” I look at the uniqueness of loving thy self. I see all of what life has to offer in loving yourself. Now don’t get me wrong. It has not always been this way.  There was a point in time in my life that I exhibited some of these same feelings.
