What To Do When You’re Feeling Stuck—Plus A Special Spring Offer

March '19

Midlife can be a confusing time. As one newsletter reader poignantly wrote, “I feel as though so much is ending and nothing ahead is clear enough to be comforting. Everything is really fine, but I feel all discombobulated and out of sorts.”

Feeling stuck

She was responding to a newsletter of a few years ago, where I talked about ‘liminal’ space—that “betwixt and between place,” according to Carl Jung. Limen means threshold in Latin, so this is the point on your midlife transition journey, where you hover over the threshold. You cannot go back and cannot see a clear path into the future—i.e. you’re stuck!

Some encouragement

If you’re action-oriented, living in liminal land can be a daily hell. However, on a more encouraging note, another reader wrote, “This description resonated with me! I felt precisely this way when I was in my late 40’s. The transition was messy and painful; my life changed dramatically. But I can reassure those going through this now that there is a wonderful new life on the other side. The knowledge that this liminal phase is a necessary part of your midlife metamorphosis may also bring some comfort and lighten your load.

More encouragingly—something you can do

At the time I wrote this newsletter I noted, “In addition, there is one thing you can actually do in this stuck place. It’s a wonderful time to initiate a program of intense self care, which is the topic of the book I have almost finished called, Midlife Magic.” Happily, as you probably know, I did finish and publish the book.

Midlife Magic: The 7 Day Self-Care Plan to Boost Your Energy and Make You Smile gives you the answer of what to do when you’re stuck at the midlife crossroads.

Why not take this first step on your midlife renewal adventure with an easy-to-follow, 7 day, self-care program. You can take advantage of this celebratory offer here.
