Welcome to another episode of the Women Over 50, Life Redesigned! Today’s episode is the second part of our Getting Your Shit Together mini-series with Michelle Horton where we will be talking about being brutally honest with ourselves, living our values, and being compassionate. 

As women over 50, we have been conditioned to check off certain boxes. Like if we can check off the boxes that contain a good career, stable relationships, and a nice home, we think we’ve got our shit together. And while Michelle and I were able to do just that, we still felt like we were not living our best lives. So make sure to tune in until the end because Michelle and I are diving deep about being honest with yourself while having self-compassion, and the importance of having strong core values (the non-negotiables).

Tweetable Quotes:

“This is the time where we get to kind of sit back, and that but it’s also a good time to stay take stock. And I think that’s what getting our shit together is. It’s really taking stock about who we are today, and getting brutally, brutally honest, is not easy. But I think it’s easier when you’re over 50 because there’s nothing to lose.” – Michelle Horton 

“There’s also a lot of power in sharing your story, even if it’s just one other person who can just sit and listen. There’s something about hearing yourself tell your story.” – Michelle Horton

“If it doesn’t fit in your values, then you have a choice. Is this something worth my time or not?” – Michelle Horton
