Yes… I know it’s not a question you ask every day. But have you even ever asked it once?
You get born. You get raised. You become an adult. Along the way you mostly do the same as everyone else in your social group… perhaps with a few exceptions.
You do the absolute opposite as a two-finger-salute to the status quo, to what’s expected of you or to a particular parent or authority figure. You know what you don’t want for sure.
But do you know what you do want?
I didn’t get to know what I wanted from life until my mid-thirties and some of that didn’t begin until my forties.
That’s not unusual.
The psychologist Carl Jung coined the term ‘mid-life crisis’ early in the last century. He described a life journey where you meet others’ expectations (or not!) early on in life. At some point around thirty-five plus you’re likely to start questioning who you are and what you’re doing.
Here’s where it gets tricky…
What follows is a period of uncertainty where life seems directionless and even pointless. I remember thinking at the time, ‘There has to be more to life than this!’ There was… but I didn’t know what the hell it was. All I knew was that I couldn’t bear my life as it was back then.
It’s at this point you can give up, numb yourself out and continue with the current trajectory of your life. I wouldn’t blame you. Indeed, I tried that a few times but the pain of staying there was just too excruciating for me.
With trepidation, I took a step into the unknown despite my fears. That included divorce and a mortgage I was unsure I could pay to house my teenage daughter and myself. But I was freakin’ well going to give it a go!
Divine feminine cojones or what?
And then, at some point in that unknown, you realise exactly who you are and your awesome way forward… for now!
Whatever your journey is, I know beyond knowing that you’ll find your own divine feminine cojones, who you are and where you’re going.
How could you not when it’s your Wild Soul calling you to healing and wholeness? Calling you to evolve and grow personally and spiritually into even more of the magnificent woman you are…
Love and Warm Wild Wishes…
