My name is Melane. Welcome to Midlife is Magical!
I started this blog as a place to share the stories and surprises that can happen during midlife. I wanted to create an online space to offer support, encouragement and real empathy as I experienced significant life change.
Turning fifty turned my world upside down. After a difficult season of allowing myself to tell the truth, I made life changes. Frankly, later- in -life changes don’t happen in a vacuum, but after some time and lots of inner work, life has balanced out again. Thankfully, regret, confusion and sadness are in my rear view mirror. Happiness, anticipation and adventure are my new normal!
This is a place to talk openly about choosing yourself first. It is never too late to make changes in your life. You can navigate new challenges and overcome obstacles, I believe in YOU!
My promise to you, my friend, is that I will never tell you midlife is easy. It isn’t. These years can be complex, frustrating and confusing. But, I can assure you, midlife is NOT a crisis.
You are welcome here. If you need encouragement, guidance, or just want to make some small life changes, I want to be your virtual bestie.
Your happiness matters to me.
