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

Wither? Oh Hell No. Wake Up!

Wither? Oh Hell No. Wake Up!
What I choose is...increasing creativity, contribution, and love-of-life in Aging.

For a couple of years now, I’ve been pondering Aging. Not in a morose way, but in a questioning, challenging way. Menopause and midlife will do that to you.

I have been throwing down a challenge to our mainstream cultural beliefs that generally hold that Aging is a slow but steady process of physical and mental deterioration, diminishment of energy, and a dampening of our passion for life. A withering. Who wants to sign up for that?

And, why does it have to be that way? My clients, friends and colleagues are thriving examples of increasing creativity, contribution, and love-of-life in Aging.

As I was thinking about it, I realized something very powerful: I choose. I choose.

I choose to Wither or Wake Up. This is a choice that I can make in every moment. I may not choose my life circumstances or events, but I do choose my response to them.

Wither or Wake Up.

What do you choose to wake up to?

About Lynne Fairchild

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.
