Career, Vocation & Finance

Women Dating over 50

The most frequently reported turning points for women were not marriage or motherhood, but personal growth experiences involving psychological ‘self-work’, such as changing one’s lifestyle. Many women don't see Mid-Life as a time for winding down their lives rather they report an opportunity for exploring new career, vocation, interests, growth and fulfillment. 

Studies show that factors predicting well-being at mid-life included financial well-being.

a confidante or a group of women friends, good health, high self-esteem, lack of self-denigration, high self-efficacy, a benign superego, goals for the future, a positive life narrative, the belief that one has a right to a life, positive Mid-Life role models, and positive feelings about our appearance.

It's important that we explore who we truly are and what we want out of the rest of our lives. Then start taking action. Consider setting some personal development goals for

self-improvement and empowerment. As you do this, look at the different areas in your life and record what you want it to look like. 

Being 50 and beyond today means many different things than it did for some of our parents and grandparents. It is not the time to give up and wait for the end. We're not at the beginning of the end, but rather in the middle of it. Finding a purpose in life at 50 and beyond entails doing this at a moment when we appreciate ourselves more. It's a period when we're more comfortable with who we are.  We have to stop fighting it and simply accept the opportunity of living the meaningful life that we are naturally inspired to live.

We live healthierhappier, more cognitively capable, and significantly longer lives when

we have meaning and purpose. We should stop trying to be good at everything and get great at one thing. The time is now. That thing that we have been wanting to do, let’s do it. If we’re happy doing what we do, let’s do twice as much of it. And if we don’t like something about our current circumstance, let’s change it or try to adjust it. Don’t wait, don’t settle. This is our life, we only get one, and now is the time to make fullest use of it.

The majority of American women will become single at some point between the ages of 65 and the end of life. This means that in their latter years, women should be equipped to manage their finances alone.

Remember: you can start late, start over, lose it all, fail again and again, yet still succeed.
