Hello & Welcome To Midlife Glow Chaser

“Aging is not ‘lost youth’ but a new stage of opportunity and strength.”- Betty Friedan

Hi there! My name is Monique, and I am relatively a newbie to midlife living. According to many surveys and reports, it looks like I’ve been a ten-year veteran in this midlife game since my 40th birthday… FORTY???!!! What an unexpected slap in the face. My goal is to live well into my 100’s… #longevitygoals

I was clueless for the first eight years of my forties, trying to make up for the lost and confused time in my 30’s… a decade I could not wait to age out of. I ran into my forties with open arms and the eagerness to reinvent myself and redefine aging.

Life at 50 has been quite a learning experience. It started with excitement for the unknown, willingness to accept change, and readiness for the new adventure. Then it unexpectantly gradually turned into another year of anxiety, self-doubt, and lack of motivation. It threw me off, and I have a sneaky suspicion it may have something to do with perimenopause. This was when MIDLIFE GLOW CHASER & LIFE IN THE PAUSE came to light. It is my journey maneuvering through the four phases of menopause (peri, pre, meno, and post); sharing “the good,” “the ok,” and “it’s gon be alright”.   

Stay tuned.
