MIDLIFE IS AN OPPORTUNITY - NOT A CRISIS!

IS THIS YOU?

Have you reached a point in your life where you have started to ponder questions such as: Where have I been? Where am I now? Where am I going? Am I happy? If not, what am I going to do about it?

Perhaps you have an empty nest and you’re wondering: what next?

Or your career has stalled, or has lost it’s shine for you and you’d like a change?

Perhaps you have a growing need to use your experience and knowledge to do some good in the world, but don’t know where to start?

Maybe you’re simply feeling a bit down about growing older and need to be inspired.

 

I'm Jo Blackwell, the Founder of

The Midlife Movement.

I founded The Midlife Movement for women who are fearful of ageing, as I once was. Women who need a little friendly help to see that midlife is not the crisis we are led to believe it is.

Rather, it is a transition to a time of enormous opportunity - if we are willing to embrace the changes in our lives and in ourselves.

We have so much to offer the world – our experience, knowledge, love - and the world needs our commitment and energy.

I am living proof that life after 50 is something to celebrate, not dread. Come over to the About page if you'd like to know more about me.

I can't wait to see what kind of life you are going to create for yourself!

 

 

Especially for you - a free ebook of my book of Portraits and inspiring interviews with over 50s.

The Midlife Movement

It's natural to pause around the time of our 50th birthday and reflect. But once we're done looking backward, It’s time for us to step into our space and embrace the lives we are meant to live now!

HOW WOULD THIS FEEL?

To be a part of a community of like-minded women who actively support each other. To have direct access to Jo and a host of guest experts and coaches who will challenge you to make the changes in your life you need to make the rest of your life the best of your life? The life you know you deserve to live?

Join the Movement – be the change you want to see in the world! 

Oh Crap, I’m 50!
A Journey from Fearful to Fabulous (Sometimes)

At 49 I was feeling old, unfit, overweight and irrelevant. Throw in hormonal upheavals, multiple bereavements and a rapidly emptying nest and you have a recipe for personal disaster. Figuring there must be others "out there" who, like me, felt confused and fearful about getting older, I started to pour my heart out into a blog called project50. What happened next changed my life.

A mixture of articles, musings and personal letters, this is a compilation of the best of the now defunct project50.

VISIT AMAZON TO PURCHASE MY BOOK

"I loved this book.  It's funny,  brilliantly written and so relatable! A must read for anyone approaching or passing 50 ... It will lift your spirits by looking at the funny side to our changing lives, hormones and bodies and make you realise that there is a lot of positive stuff you can do with all your wisdom and knowledge that comes with age." Annette Watters (Amazon UK Review)

My Mission

To challenge women to think differently about ageing and to embrace change. I want to let them know they are not alone, or going "mad", when menopause happens and that grieving for their children when they've left home is totally normal.

And to reassure them that there are new opportunities ahead to be really excited about! By embracing change instead of fighting it a more hopeful and less fearful future lies ahead.

The Midlife Movement Community

This group comes from me: from my journey, my experience and my desire to help. This is a community designed to help you thrive.

I want to help YOU move from Fearful to FABULOUS!
