Sometimes even when we’re working on our ‘calling’ we don’t even realize we’re working like machines. Many of us have lost our sense of wonder. We no longer look at the world in awe. We begin to believe that desiring something other than what we have is somehow a negative feeling. We Creative Warriors talk a lot about finding our ‘why.’ But what about getting to the why of your ‘why?’
Part of my upcoming book is about becoming self-employed in mid-life. I love coaching clients who are making big life and/or work changes later in life because it is a very different experience than doing it in youth. And the experience, in my opinion, is richer. It’s interesting, then, to pose the question to this community: why bother? Why now? What is it about this current life that isn’t working? And it goes for all ages; once you begin to own your experience – both the good and the bad – you can step into whatever the next phase might be.
To dive deeper into “getting our bother on” I’ve brought on personal growth pioneer, Jennifer Louden.
Jennifer helped launch the concept of self-care with her first bestseller, The Woman’s Comfort Book. Since then, she’s written six additional books on well-being and whole living, including The Woman’s Retreat Book and The Life Organizer, with close to a million copies of her books in print in nine languages. Her newest is Why Bother? Discover the Desire for What’s Next. Jennifer has spoken around the world, and has written a national magazine column for a Martha Stewart magazine, been quoted in two of Brené Brown’s books, and has appeared on hundreds of TV programs, radio shows, and podcasts—even on Oprah.
