S2Ep38 Midlife Magic + Third Acts

April 6, 2024

Good morning from New York City. I’m sitting here noodling this morning a recurring theme that’s coming up. I’ve talked about how I’m feeling restless and I had originally said that I’m bored. The reframe for myself is I am feeling restless or desiring more or wanting a third act. You can say it in many different ways. What I’m noticing in my conversations is – surprise, surprise –  I’m not alone.

What I find interesting is it doesn’t matter what theme I’m talking about, whether it’s loneliness, or needing to be more patient and tolerant or forgiving, or being indecisive and waffling – whatever it is – this is simply what life is all about and these moments or themes or conundrums come and go in all of our lives. Now, why am I talking about that? Yes, of course, I’m stating the obvious, but why am I stating this? It’s because I remember at one point, I was very much thinking about and reflecting upon grief. I was reading about it. I was seeking out wisdom. I felt like I had a lot to say, and the message going through my head was, oh my gosh Constance. you don’t want to go down that route that’s like the last thing people want to hear about. Then lo and behold, Anderson Cooper comes out with his amazingly beautiful podcast, All There Is, and takes the world by storm. He had the cojones to address it, to be vulnerable about it. Listening to him speak and listening to all these amazing stories, it’s like a fast and furious dose of empathy and the express elevator to your heart space.I truly experienced that podcast as a stunning work of art and an important and beautiful window into humanity.
