Your MidLife Thrivalhood journey is comparable to a map…

Our MidLife is a journey and creating a map, we can see where we were, where we are, and where we went to go…We need to define the origin, destination, vehicle, backpack, landmarks, and route. With a map in front of us, our MidLife Moxie and Thrivalhood will be a lot more likely to come close to what we want.


Who are you right now? To gain insight concerning yourself, you need to look intimately at your beliefs, values, and ethics aside from your economic, professional, cultural, and civil status. Furthermore, also reflect on your skills, knowledge, strengths, and weaknesses.


Who do you want to be? Your destination should envelop all the aspects of your being: the physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual.


How are you going to get there? You need to make a map as to what methods you have accessible to help you arrive at your destination. Education, money, time – they all play into this.

Travel Bag:

You bring with you certain knowledge, skills, and attitudes. These decide your ability and help you in attaining your vision. Given such, there is a need for you to evaluate what knowledge, skills, and attitudes you have at present and what you need to get along the way.

Landmarks and Route:

Landmarks confirm if you are on the right track while the route determines the travel time. Therefore, in planning out your life, you also need to have landmarks and a route. These landmarks are your measures of success. These measures must be specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-bound.

Anticipate Turns, Detours, and Potholes

The purpose of your MidLife Moxie Map is to reduce hurried and spur-of-the-moment decisions that can make you be unable to find your way. However, often our plans are modified along the way due to some inconveniences, delays, and other situations beyond our control. Like in any path, there are turns, detours, and potholes. With a basic map in place, these little changes won’t be so difficult.

When we become friends with our body, it increases our self~esteem, self~worth and leads to thriving in other areas of our MidLives.

If you are ready to stop belittling,  berating, and doing a disservice to yourself, here’s a wonderful FREE source of suggestions/tips to take daily actions. Your Body ~ Your LifeTime Companion is a great way to start creating harmony between you and your body.

    Oh how I love this article and your analogies. In order to get where we are going, we need a compass and a map. We need to know WHAT we want first and then decide HOW we are going to get there. I’m with your response to Jackie that we gotta start from where we are.

      Thanks Tandy…

    I love this! A great way to approach your life-planning. I tell my clients, “If you don’t know where you’re going, how will you know when you arrive?”

      Jackie, exactly… gotta start from where you are…
