It took me till my 50's to not only find my voice, but undertsand who Robin Joy Meyers was as a person. What my needs, likes, dislikes and everything in between were. I went through life in fear of disappointing everyone else forgetting that the number 1 relationship needs to be YOU! When that switch flipped, I finally began to discover what self-love and self-worth were and then uncovered that JOY was a lifestyle; not just a middle name.
Life has no secrets and the secrets we tell ourselves stop us from uncovering a life on our terms. As a molecular geneticist who discovered a gene in fruit flies, which I didn't admit to until my TEDx talk in June 2019 on "The Science of Loneliness and Isolation," I learned this. Life is a sequence of dots. It is necessary to uncover the past to live in the present to design the future that you want and deserve facing fears and uncomfortable conversations with yourself.
Simply Midlife is a blog created for women to support, tackle and empower these discussions about lifestyle, relationships, wellness and to have real and raw conversations even about the uncomfortable conversations. Its about community and as I can attest, 50+ is magnificent!
