Design your Third Act
Live Like You Can
By Janis McDonald
Most of us spend more time planning a vacation, the type of house we want, or which laptop to buy than we do on planning each stage of our lives. Boomers and Beyond (myself included) have come to realize that our Third Act is an opportunity to make decisions that previous generations had little access to at our age.
Design Your Third Act
Sat, July 11- Sun, Jul 12
The Third Act of aging is now being recognized as a distinct developmental stage which we are all capable of reaching and growing without limits. While aging may bring physical limitations, the human spirit can keep on expanding.
The Fast Track Workshop for women is perfect for those who are just retired, feel stuck, have just moved to SMA, or are going through a life transition needing to reset their lives. Instead of leaving your future to chance and circumstance, you will make decisions and take active charge of this time through creative and introspective work.
Research has shown clear goals greatly increase the likelihood of personal change and growth. Thoughtfully and deliberately making life decisions before life decides for us enhances the chance that we will get the life we want now.
Taking time out to spend two days thinking about “What’s next for me and what’s right for me now?” will be empowering and enlightening. Our approach is a weekend of self-focus and turning inwards with a small group of fellow travelers. The format is interactive with key questions to answer and powerful-guided exercises. You will write, think, meditate, and work with other workshop participants learning new ways to stay on course with your goals. It is a time to get crystal clear about what you want, why you want it, and how to create it.
You will develop strength in your belief to keep yourself accountable and on track in the future by employing our powerful self-coaching method. Drawing on the work of well-known professionals in the field of influencing behavior, you will be prepared to coach yourself throughout your Third Act years.
The first day is held in Centro where, while turning inward, you will share the magical view of La Parroquia. Wrap up day is held just outside San Miguel de Allende at a quiet, peaceful ranch with animals, gardens, and greenery. Delicious lunches will be served as we continue our conversations and cement our ideas and friendships.
Our workshop is designed for motivated women who want to be proactive about planning the third trimester of life. So join us for a “weekend to remember!”
My workshop partner, Mary Murrell, and I offer a time out, a pause, and a deep breath to take a look at your Third Act of aging. Please visit www.livelikeyoucan.com, where you will find more information and read testimonials from past participates.
