Second Blooming Impacts Lives
I recently taught (guided, really) a 3-hour class on Second Blooming for Women: Growing a Life that Matters after Fifty. Just two women attended, so it was intimate and wonderful. It was a safe place for exploring our lives in a deep, productive way. After two hours, one woman admitted she had contemplated suicide this year. The other, who was in her fifties, just wanted to look ahead and decide if she should do something new and different with her life. She has held only two jobs for decades. By the end of the session, we were able to develop a one-sentence Life Purpose Statement for one of them, sending her on her way with renewed hope. I can’t think of a better, more meaningful way to spend 3 hours than having a positive impact on women’s lives!
