Woop woop! It’s finally here! The Menopause, Marriage and Motherhood Podcast!
Doing a visual or audio version of the blog has been on my mind for several years now. I considered doing videos but, all things considered, podcasts seemed the better option, mainly because if I have a choice, it isn’t to sit down and watch a video. I’d much rather have something to listen to while I’m driving, working out or doing the housework.
I am so passionate about connecting with other women at that midlife point, where the kids are leaving home, the body is changing and a life where being a hands-on mother is coming to an end and we have the opportunity to decide what we’re going to do with the rest of our lives.
For me, that was really daunting: I had no idea what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I’d been a mother first and foremost for so long, I didn’t know what else I could do.
The podcast is all about how we, as middle age women, deal with everything that life throws at us: the hormones, the decisions, the changes, the events. What happens you your marriage breaks up? When you find out that your husband of several decades has been cheating on you? When you go bankrupt? When you find out you’ve got cancer? When you want to change your career or start a business?
It’s about the less momentous events and decisions, too: how do you deal with the hormonal changes? The sudden weight gains? The changes in body shape? How do you dress in a way that makes you feel good in a world that seems to make clothes for old ladies and teenagers and no one in between?
It’s about real life women, their experiences and their learnings.
It’s about sharing the wisdom that comes with reaching a certain age (even if we still feel like complete novices who have no idea know what they’re doing on the inside).
It’s about connection and support.
It’s about inspiration, love and laughter.
I hope you enjoy the podcasts. I’d love your feedback and if you have a story you’d like to share, please let me know, I’d love to talk to you.
