The Not Your Average Lives Podcast

Reflections On My 61st Year

February 15, 2021

EP93: Happy Anniversary to Not Your Average Lives and Happy Birthday to me!!! 

Today's podcast was inspired by my look back at the last 12 months. We typically tend to forget our accomplishments and focus on what we didn't get done so one of my regular mindset practices is to celebrate my accomplishments every single month and document them.

So the exercise of looking back over the past 12 months was not too hard because I had it all written down, but it still amazes me because my natural inclination, which is pretty common for most of us, is to think I didn't do enough.

What also amazes me is that what I ended up accomplishing in my 61st year changed so much from what I set out to accomplish, and even so, it turned out to be my best year yet! And I know that's because I kept following my gut!!!

The older I get, the more aligned I become in what I know I'm here to do and the happier I become as a result of that which results in a deeper conviction in helping others find their unique reason for being, because I know, as a late in life purpose-finder, that I am evidence that deeper fulfillment can be found no matter how old you are! 

The books I mentioned in this episode that were the most impactful this year are:
