Forever Fierce Day 2018
Forever Fierce Day 2018: women coming together and sharing what it means to be fierce at midlife.
There’s no doubt that midlife for baby boomers and Gen Xers is vastly different than it was for previous generations. Midlife these days is the beginning of an exciting new phase of life and the Forever Fierce women are here to show just how cool that can be.
Once again, these pioneering generations are paving the way. We have a lot of living to do still and?we deserve to be seen as the beautiful, intelligent, strong, kind, caring, loving, fierce women that we are. Age is irrelevant!
I’ve been blessed to be part of this movement from the beginning. It all started one year ago today, with the inspiration of our founder, Catherine Grace O’Connell. You can read about it here: THE FIERCE 50.

I'll send you everything you need: recipes, planning & prep tips, tools & resources and a daily dose of motivation.
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS COMMIT TO ONE SIMPLE NEW DAILY HABIT.
It’s been an amazing year and I’m so proud to be part of the Forever Fierce team. The message aligns so well with my philosophy of helping midlife women to create a healthy lifestyle and be confident and happy in their own skin.
For me, being fierce means being true to myself and having the courage to stand up for what I believe in. It’s not always easy to ‘find your voice.’ And sometimes you may wonder if it’s even worth bothering, because who’s listening anyway?
That’s why this year’s campaign is about sharing the voices of everyday women who don’t necessarily have a ‘platform.’ Forever Fierce Day is a celebration of all of us, from all walks of life: because we all matter and we all deserve to be heard.
Below I have some of the wonderful women who enrich my life every day, sharing what it means to them to be FIERCE at midlife.
Meet my Fierce Friends

When you get to midlife your life seems to come to a grinding halt. I found I lost myself, didn’t know what I wanted, what direction to take, where I fitted in. Your kids are off your hands and now its just the two of you. You have to take a step back and look at your life and figure out where to from here. What do I really want to achieve in the next phase of life.
For me it was looking at my health and exercise and getting into a routine of eating regular healthy meals, smaller portions. Enjoying life and stepping out of my comfort zone and just doing and achieving things I thought I never could. You really have to work at it. Some days you can just get into a rut, our bodies change, our mindset changes.
These things are big to cope with when you are just so used to cruising through life and going on about normal day to day things. We tend to get more emotional about things, little things are big in our eyes. We tend to be more sensitive and irritable than we normally would be. Our hormones just take over and take control. I now can understand what a midlife crisis is all about. As it is a crisis as my world just got turned upside down. Things are different and now I am in a new direction and path.
Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.

Confident is definitely a word for midlife…
And we love ourselves, our bodies and are honestly happy. Myself personally, all my relationships with family and friends are stronger at this point in life which makes us stronger, wiser and fierce; midlife really is a wonderful thing.

I love to lift weights and run (not fast) and kickboxing, and no you won’t get big like Arnold Schwarzenegger, it’s physically impossible. When we get older we lose bone density and muscle. Working out and weight lifting will help maintain bone and muscle. Just get out there and move!!!
Jo, 46, Wollongong, NSW, Australia.
Today I take no day for granted. I love, laugh, smile and just breathe it all in.
