Finding life purpose in midlife….Ladies it’s never too late 

If you would have told my 35-year-old self that at age 49 I’d have my photos taken by the Eiffel Tower in a beautiful pink gown I would have laughed and said “no way, I don’t like being photographed”.

If you would have told that same 35-year-old version of me, that I’d be photographing and hosting retreats to help women transform their confidence, I would have laughed in your face and said: “you’re kidding”.

You see when I was in my 30’s I had such scarcity thinking.

I thought I was getting “too old” and that time was running out.

Maybe you can relate… are the thoughts “it’s too late” or “I’m too old” impacting your ability to uncover and live your life’s purpose?

I had always dreamed of travelling the world for work and pleasure, but when I was in my 30’s it seemed with each birthday that dream was getting further and further out of reach.



But here’s the thing…. 

#1 We all start somewhere. Even if your start is at age 39, 45 or 56… it’s still a START. 

If I had never pursued my passion for photography and started taking photos (even before I was focused on boudoir) and if I hadn’t stepped in front of the camera for my own photoshoot, I would never have discovered my mission, my purpose. I had no idea photography would lead me to uncover work that feels so fulfilling and meaningful. But I followed my passion and got into action.

#2 It’s never too late….we just need to change the stories we tell ourselves and remember that at any moment we can decide that WE’RE JUST GETTING STARTED! 

There’s a lot of noise and cultural conditioning that tells women “it’s too late” when we declare things like…. wanting to go on adventures, explore and travel the world, move across the country, start a charity or business….

BUT the truth is….

We get to reinvent ourselves, we get to call the shots and create a meaningful next chapter in life….WHENEVER WE WANT TO!


If you’re feeling lost when it comes to your purpose, or your head is filled with thoughts like “maybe it’s too late for me to find it”.

Trust me it’s not. 

Begin with the clues you do have…what you’re interested in…who you want to help and be confident enough to start. And practice flipping that script and reminding yourself “I’m just getting started.”
