The gift of Living Authentically

“If you call forth that which is in you, it will save you.  If you do not call forth what is in you, it will destroy you. ”  – Gospel of St. Thomas

What does it mean to live authentically? I believe that it means that our inner world (feelings, values, spirituality, truths) are in alignment with our outer world (community, career, relationships). When these two areas of our lives are congruent, we experience an inner peace and wisdom that brings us deep fulfillment and joy in our lives. We are each born with our own inner compass… but when we choose not to follow our true direction and path in life, we find ourselves lost… sometimes lost in our own lives. In living with true alignment, our purpose here on this life journey will become crystal clear, and we will enjoy life the way we were intended to.

Bikinis and Bifocals

Bikinis and Bifocals

The 60’s are the new 50’s. The 40’s are the new 30’s.  We as women are living life with a different mindset, motivation, and purpose. We’ve redefined what it means to be a women at any age, and we’ve embaced the experience and wisdom that aging brings.  True beauty, is found within. And it shows on the faces of women who have embraced who they are, what they’ve been through, and where they’re going. 

We need to stick together and support one another as women. One of my favorite online women’s support group is called, Bikinis and Bifocals.  (Bikinis is for the attitude, and Bifocals is for the reality).  This wonderful group of women share information, support one another, have a lot of fun, and embrace who they are at this time in their lives.  I highly encourage you to check out their site and become a member like I am (it’s free!), and learn more about their mission.  Bikinis and Bifocals… it’s an attitude and a lifestyle!  Spread the word!
