Life gets shorter every day and, Coach Becca Ribbing chats frankly about how in midlife, we don’t have time to fool ourselves. Some unlikely habits to distract us from our truth include things like scrolling endlessly on our phones or binge-watching shows.
We may falsely believe it is painful to get honest with ourselves, but it is likely more painful to live stuck and deny ourselves our truth. Midlife can be a time of turbulent change and being honest with our feelings, how we act, and how satisfied we may or may not be can have a huge ripple effect.
Getting honest might be scary because fear that we won’t get the support that we need. Rebecca talks about being our own cheerleader and also cultivating relationships so that you have cheerleaders in your life.
This episode is full of ‘mic-drop’ moments that all of us can benefit from.

Getting honest with yourself is teaching you to stop living bin denial. We so often don’t want to accept diversity. Good blog post.
Nancy- Denial can be so sneaky that we don’t even realize were doing it. And that’s where slowing down and really thinking this through can be eye-opening.
Tell me about it. I had to get honest about all the “stuff” I’ve spent money on the last few years. Do I really need that dress still in the package for the last two years? And do I really need to pay for storage for things I haven’t used in 2-3 years?
Yes. Time to be honest I guess. Thanks for the reminder.
Denial is hard to break.
Thanks for the reminder.
