Exciting reinvention news
The Reinspired Life is now Midlife Anti-Hero. Read on to learn why and what's in it for you.
I started this newsletter in earnest about a year ago and I’ve learned a lot about Substack and even more about myself. Mostly, there’s been a lot of searching for the right road because the signals are confusing—you should do this and you should be that.
I’ve had enough of this should. Haven’t you?
The last thing we need is another hero, so out with The Reinspired Life and in with Midlife Anti-Hero!
This newsletter will challenge the unrelenting and often conflicting messages aimed at midlife women in advertising, entertainment, and social media. With me, myself, and I as the prime examples.
Anti-heroes are complex and imperfect, not constrained by other people’s expectations.
The Midlife Anti-Hero rescues herself first.
Here’s what’s new and what’s in it for you:
All Midlife Anti-Hero subscribers receive a free monthly email newsletter, which includes:
A short personal essay about learning to let go of expectations, trust my intuition, and use my voice. (The struggle is real and ongoing.)
“Not-your-typical-self-help” reading recommendations
Pet Photos! Kitty, the one-eyed O.G. of cats, has lots of opinions and no filter.
Become a paid subscriber and you will also receive:
Weekly postcards from Reinvention Road with behind-the-scenes snapshots and lessons learned during my two-year purpose quest (a.k.a, the year before and after I quit my job). Things like:
Notes from my meetings with a life wizard
Snapshots of my morning pages (the ones we aren’t supposed to show anyone) and other insights from my experience with how-to books and workshops.
Reports from Rangeley, my big yellow Lab—I record audio notes on our morning walks. He hears things.
Occasional interviews with real-world life coaches, mentors, and writers.
Access to the complete content archive.
Writing prompts, discussion threads, and discounts to online writing workshops and 1:1 sessions.
Anti-heroes usually work alone, but this one is reader-supported. Please consider upgrading to a paid subscription.
