Founder, Your Second Season Podcast Co-Host
I started to explore this transition (my second season) and found myself annoyed with the negative stereotype associated with “older women.” The lack of support and fragmented resources were also frustrating, and I found it very difficult to understand what was happening to me. I felt like a storm was brewing inside my body and I didn’t know what to do. The concept of “you don’t know, what you don’t know” was the one thing that was very clear to me. I went on a mission to seek answers and found many women felt like me: uncertainty, isolation, with thoughts of ” I am invisible and no one understands” . The void that surrounds this community of women is glaringly apparent. We need to come together and talk about this midlife change. I ask that you join our robust Facebook group community that will connect you with many like-minded women. We laugh together and there are a lot of tips and solutions with facebook live events, and weeklypodcaststo help you navigate this transition and understand what is going on physically.
