As a sexagenarian (great name for our sixties, huh?) I have entered into a period of being in the present in such a lovely, positive, relaxing way. This feels somehow like my reward for living life fully, to do what I want and answer to nobody.
Something about living in an amazing natural place keeps me present most of the time, so much so that I rarely want to leave. I find nature so grounding.
But, as a therapist, I would like to make the case for paying attention to those moments in your past that you simply cannot let go, those moments that come up in your dreams and demand more psychic attention. I know that if I had not gone through a divorce and job loss in my late 40s and then decided to re-think my life, I would not be so content today.
Part of that process for me was contacting a key person from my past for a few astonishingly healing and cathartic conversations. Only you can decide whether letting your past go is possible and healing, or doing something in the present will expedite your movement into a better present and future. In my case I was quite lucky, because the lover from my past was also seeking redemption and healing. I don’t think any other choice would have provided that kind of healing for both of us. The whole experience felt like a blessing.
Sometimes the only way to move on is to take note of what you simply cannot let go of in your past. I would not know about this without experiencing it personally. To learn more about psychic healing and how it can help you believe in love again, I offer you my book: How to Believe in Love Again: Opening to Forgiveness, Trust, and Your Own Inner Wisdom.Please do not purchase my books through Amazon. I receive nothing from them. Just send me an e-mail at: MidlifeCrisisQueen@gmail.com to request a copy. I promise you a great price!

I agree. It is important to realize that you don’t need to hang on to everything and everyone in your life. There is great freedom in letting go when appropriate.
Yes! The trick is choosing what you need to let go of right now, and what you need to learn a bit more from…
Your story is inspirational. The saying “You Can’t teach an Old Dog New Tricks” does not mean you or many women!
You’ve got that right Haralee! I’m learning something new every single day!
