Midlife Crisis, Menopause, Perimenopause, whatever name you call it – the purpose is the same. The purpose of midlife, menopause and perimenopause (if we are paying attention) is to assist us in the birth of our Soul. Soul is the uniquely creative way in which we have been gifted to find meaning, purpose, connection and fulfillment in our lives and through which we are called to serve the betterment of our world. The midlife journey consists of a complex, twisted, path which is everything but linear and once we think we have accomplished a certain task, healed a particular wound, it comes back again for another layer of healing. In preparation for my upcoming course, Surviving Midlife, I have created a visual which demonstrates the labyrinthine journey of midlife (menopause and perimenopause). In the spirit of Harry Potter, I call it the Marauding Midlife Map….because we often feel like thieves in the night as we sneak around trying to find our way through the midlife challenges (and opportunities). The good news is that the more we surrender to the process of midlife, the more we can proudly proclaim, (again in Harry Potter Style) “Mischief Managed!”
