I am Patricia Love and I am 71 Years Young.

My Diamond blog is dedicated to inspiring and supporting women in their journey of aging with pride and grace. I explore the nuances of becoming more visible and valued in life after 45, debunking the myth of the ‘invisible woman.’ Through my posts, I offer practical advice on how to celebrate the wisdom acquired over the years, redefine societal standards of beauty, and embrace the changes that come with aging. It’s a tribute to all women who are stepping into their diamond years with confidence, joy, and an unapologetic sense of self-worth.

Embracing Your Unique Self: The Liberating Power of Maturity

Discover the liberating journey of embracing your unique self as you mature. Learn how authenticity brings freedom and joy, making aging a process to look forward to. My blog offers insights and real-life examples, showing how being true to yourself enriches life at every stage.

As we journey through life

One of the most empowering realizations we can come to is the freedom found in being our unique selves. This truth becomes even more pronounced as we mature. The societal pressures to conform, which often weigh heavily in our youth, start to fade, replaced by a liberating sense of self-acceptance and authenticity. In this blog, we’ll explore how embracing your unique self can be incredibly freeing, especially as you age, and why maturing should be something to look forward to.

The Liberation of Authenticity

Breaking Free from Conformity: In our younger years, there’s an intense pressure to fit in. But as we age, we often find the confidence to break free from these constraints. This liberation comes from a deeper understanding and acceptance of who we are. It’s about shedding the layers of expectation and embracing the core of our being.

Example: Consider Sarah, who spent her early years trying to adhere to societal standards of success and beauty. As she entered her 50s, Sarah began to prioritize what truly made her happy — be it her unconventional fashion sense or her passion for travel and photography. This shift led to a profound sense of liberation and joy, showcasing how maturing can be a gateway to living more authentically and re-learning how to have more fun

The Joy of Self-Discovery

Continual Growth and Exploration: Maturity brings with it the opportunity to continuously rediscover ourselves. It’s about exploring passions and interests that you may have put on hold or never realized you had.

Example: Take Johnna, who discovered her love for painting later in life. What started as a hobby in retirement quickly turned into a passion, leading her to host small art exhibitions. This newfound passion brought a sense of fulfillment and excitement that only comes from embracing your true interests.

The Strength in Self-Acceptance

Embracing Flaws and All: As we mature, we learn to accept not just our strengths but also our flaws. This self-acceptance is incredibly freeing. It allows us to live without the constant need for approval and to appreciate the unique qualities that make us who we are.

Example: Lisa, once overly critical of her imperfections, learned to embrace them as she grew older. This shift in perspective brought about a more relaxed and contented way of living, highlighting the beauty and freedom of self-acceptance. Acceptance is critical in being happy.

The Wisdom of Letting Go

Releasing Past Burdens: With age comes the wisdom to let go of past grievances and regrets. This ability to release the past and focus on the present is incredibly liberating, allowing for more joy to come in.

Example: Carol spent years holding onto career regrets. As she matured, she learned to let go of these burdens, finding peace in her current accomplishments and the simple pleasures of life, such as spending time with grandchildren or gardening.

Conclusion: A Journey Worth Embracing

Embracing your unique self as you mature is not just about aging gracefully; it’s about living life to the fullest. It’s a journey filled with self-discovery, growth, acceptance, and wisdom. Each phase of life offers its beauty and opportunities, and as we age, we unlock the true potential of living fully, let’s look forward to maturing, not as a phase of decline, but as a period of liberation, joy, and unapologetic freedom.

Remember, your unique journey is what makes your life so amazing and aging is a privilege, so remember to appreciate every moment and embrace every wrinkle, and ache!

Stay Brilliant and have a Shining 2024

As an active Realtor®, and in sales for 45 years in Washington State, Patricia coaches women in sales to “Refuel” by turning their “I Can’t” into “I Can.” She interrupts the negative behaviors that have sabotaged them and helps them create a new path towards positive results. Albert Einstein once said “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results.”

Patricia’s own story of trauma, death, and a slew of bad decisions as a young adult, forced her to flip her own inner script, or face alternative consequences. By interrupting and healing the negative behaviors that sabotaged her, she was able to find the courage, and new found energy to move forward in all areas of her life. She did this with the action of five words.

These inspiring words created her Exclusive Diamond Method”, as Patricia believes we are all a diamond in the rough, just waiting to shine! So, begin the healing, and shine bright like a diamond.
