1. Ep 136 Finding Your Courage to Thrive in the Second Half of Your Life Bernie Borges 29:20

On episode 136 I'm joined by Sheree Clark, a Midlife Courage Coach who calls her practice Fork in the Road.  Sheree says she became a courage coach because she believes “it takes guts to live the second half of your life for you when you’ve lived the first half for everyone else.”

The three key discussion points of our conversation are:

1️⃣ Courage is necessary to thrive in Midlife. Breaking free from the expectations of others and finding the courage to live the life that brings you joy and fulfillment is essential to living your second half of life.

2️⃣ Regrets can be valuable learning opportunities. By examining your regrets, you can uncover patterns and gain insight into your decision-making processes. Regrets can teach you valuable lessons that can shape your future actions and choices.

3️⃣ It's not about settling but compromising. Rather than viewing something as settling, think of it as compromising. Life is full of trade-offs, and sometimes the compromise you make is necessary to achieve your goals and find balance in your life.

Sheree is clear to point out that Midlife can be a challenging and difficult time because there is no clear playbook. It requires courage to break away from societal expectations and roles.

Sheree shares her own personal journey of leaving her advertising agency after 25 years to create space for new possibilities that bring her joy.

As a Midlife courage coach, Sheree specializes in helping others identify the areas of their life where courage is needed to face and embrace changes to make in Midlife to live the second half of life for you.

Tune into this episode to gain insight into your own courageous Midlife journey on your own path to living the second half of your life for you.

Bernie Borges Host Midlife Fulfilled Podcast

I started podcasting in 2013. My most recent podcast is the Midlife Fulfilled weekly podcast which launched in February 2022.

I was frustrated by a lack of fulfillment, in spite of good health, a successful career, good fitness, a healthy marriage, and overall happiness. Despite these blessings, I was lacking fulfillment.

I conducted a survey and discovered that I wasn’t alone on the journey to find more fulfillment. As an experienced podcaster, I knew that I could provide a platform to help men and women in midlife find more fulfillment and joy through a weekly podcast.
