HotFlashDaily is about helping you make the best of a very challenging transition.
Because life doesn't pause during menopause.

The End is Just the Beginning

The End is Just the Beginning
It is likely that we have many more years to create, and a freedom to explore what that might look like.

Menopause, whether it is welcome to us or not, is an ending. For many of us, if not most, it is a bittersweet time because it signals the end of our reproductive time of life.

Many of us must grieve this ending.

And, as with so many endings in our lives, this ending is also a powerful beginning.

Children will not be born through us anymore, but our creative essence remains strong and powerfully alive, even if we have never thought of ourselves as creative.

It is likely that we have many more years to create, and a freedom to explore what that might look like. It will be different in each of us.

Where do we start to explore this possibility?

I would invite you to ask your soul this question:

What still wants to be born through me?

In your private sacred space, just sit with that question. Allow space and quiet and time for your soul to whisper. This may not be a familiar question, but it is a powerful one.

About Lynne Fairchild

Lynne Fairchild unwittingly began menopause at 38 years old, as she sweated through her clothing on a Chicago "L" platform in the middle of winter. Nobody, including her doctors, thought that she might be peri-menopausal. Now, she's writing from the "other side" of menopause. Lynne is a Professional Certified Coach who helps women navigate midlife and menopause at http://wayfindingcoach.com/.

HotFlashDaily.com was created in the spirit of making every day your very best, even when you just don’t feel like it.

The site was conceived and built through the combined efforts of contributing bloggers, technicians, and impassioned women who believe the way we treat ourselves is a direct reflection of how we feel about ourselves.

We’re looking for true short stories for the website, and perhaps for inclusion in an e-book, from women who want to tell others about their experiences with peri-menopause, menopause, and beyond. We’re looking for experiences, ups/downs/unexpected highs and lows, sticky situations, “what I wish I’d known”, “what I’d tell my younger self”.. you name it!

Submissions should be first-person posts written in a blogging, editorial, or columnist style WITHOUT commercial links.

NOTE: Promotional, commercial articles (with links to commercial websites) will not be accepted for publication. Click here for the small print terms & conditions.
