Quitting & Reimagining Your Purpose in Mid-Life


Welcome, friends, to our latest discussion, coming to you from the vibrant setting of the Line Hotel in DC. Today, we're exploring a topic that resonates deeply with many of us: quitting. But before we delve into the heart of the matter, let's take a moment to appreciate this fantastic podcast studio. If you're joining us via video, you'll see what we mean.

So, what's on the agenda today? Quitting. But not just any quitting. We're talking about quitting multiple aspects of our lives. It's more than just a career change – although that's certainly part of it. Quitting can manifest in various forms: from the way we speak to ourselves and others, to habits, relationships, and even how we interact with the world around us.

We recently conducted a workshop on quitting, and it was eye-opening. The exercise encouraged participants to identify aspects of their lives that no longer served them and to let them go. Quitting isn't always easy, but it's essential for growth and personal development.

What's fascinating is that quitting is not a one-and-done deal, especially at this stage of life. We make decisions, thinking we've solved one problem, only to encounter new challenges down the road. Healing isn't linear, and that's something we're coming to terms with.


This summary encapsulates the essence of the discussion, highlighting the importance of quitting in various aspects of life and the need for reimagining one's purpose, especially in mid-life. It touches upon societal issues like fat-phobia and manipulation, while encouraging listeners to prioritize their well-being and pursue happiness.
