What do you (really) want? dreams for my 40th year 🍰 // Shownotes for ‘I Feel For You’ podcast episode 40

i feel for you episode 40.jpg
My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style
— Maya Angelou

Friends! I have a question for you!

What do you want?

So some of you know i’ve been on a bit of a quest this year, this lifetime, to be more me, to allow Ethel, my alter ego some slack and embrace expression, shamelessness and learning how to be. Sure, this is a life’s quest, but as this is episode 40 - 40?!? I thought it might be nice to pay tribute to this magic number, which feels especially magic for me this year, because in february, i turn 40! Yes! I know! Cue Jadakiss we gon make it darling, cause it’s real! I’m bopping like it’s 1997...

I’m so excited about it to be honest, i mean, the older i get, the more me i feel. I mean, i have always been me, but i am truly feeling a difference as i begin to leave my 30s behind, and embrace a new era. Sure it’s just a number, imaginary, right? birthdays are simply anniversaries of a moment, right? and every moment matters!

But i thought it might be fun to share some of the goals i’ve been working towards as i embrace my 40th year on this planet.. And i’m sharing this with you in the hope that you can use my milestone, albeit imaginary cause you know, i hope my milestone helps you to recognise your own. to consider the potential you have in every single day you’re up in here up in here - you know?

To let yourself go for what you want, to move towards it bit by bit, little by little. I’ll also break some of stuff down for you later in the show with a little activity to start to tackle how you might be able to apply this idea of goals to your own situation and begin to break things down so they can be for real life, not pretend.

I’m interested in you showing up for your goals. And getting over the hurdles so you can start doing that. So i’ll be sharing ideas about how you can do that.
