Cheri’s Journey to Joy! – Getting through the Menopause Thoughts

Cheri continuing her journey to joy in Hawaii!

It all began when I was around 45 years old, I was tired of spending my days in an 8×8 foot office day after day, month after month, year after year.  I felt empty and stuck in a rut.  It was like being in a coffin with both ends knocked out of it. I was in throws of the “Midlife” woes. This is a stage we call the Menopause Mess!

I didn’t know exactly what I wanted. I just knew I had to do something different.  I knew I wanted more freedom.  I wanted to set my own hours.  However, I was too scared to change.  My salary was a big portion of our financial support system.  After my first marriage, I swore I would never depend on someone else, again.  These were my big trust issues and beliefs.

Every day was the same.  Get up at 4 or 5 am; go to work until 3:30; come home and clean and cook.  I was usually going to school or working a second job, too.  It was after I earned my Associate’s Degree, I took the time to realize I was very unhappy with my humdrum life. The menopause thoughts were appearing. I was waking up to an awareness I never had before.

I had always depended on others for a “Job”.  I never believed I could do something on my own and actually make money.  I learned this unproductive belief of mine was not true after I had been in an MLM business for a few years.  It was there, where I discovered I could live life instead of letting life live me.  I could manifest the results I wanted in my life.   (We always manifest the results we have in life.  Most of the time, it is done unconsciously.)

Little by little, I started to gain more and more confidence.  I realized how much I enjoyed being around positive people. I enjoyed sharing with others how to become more confident and I started to communicate more effectively.  I discovered how to “Let Go” of the fears that held me back from my true happiness.

Communication was huge for me.  I was an introvert and kept pretty quiet most of the time.  I still do to some extent, but now it is by conscious choice.  I wanted to be able to speak my truth and no longer keep quite.  I joined Toastmasters and I now speak up and speak out, as I desire.  I, now, have the confidence and take time to invest in my biggest asset in life- me!

With these changes came more and more opportunities that supported me in changing my mindset, perception, and beliefs. I was able to get through the menopause stage of my life with more ease.  I gained more courage and challenged myself to get out of my comfort zones, so I could continue to grow.

I wanted to know what my purpose was for being here. Have you heard the saying “When the student is ready, the teacher shows up”?  Well, the right people began to appear in my life to support me in my self-awareness journey. This life-changing support took me to self-awareness arenas, the right people, workshops, books, etc. All I had to do was embrace the opportunities and learn from them.  By taking advantage of self- development materials, like our Queen Bee Process, I have created a fabulous life.

My purpose was finally revealed.  I became so excited and intrigued by unique, simple, priceless “Letting Go” techniques, that I decided I needed to share them with the world.   That is why I decided to create a platform to share our Queen Bee Processes.  It is important for me to know that I have done all I can to make a positive difference in as many people’s lives as I can.  All I want to do is make sure other people have the opportunity to get through menopause with ease and BEE Happy, too.

Today, I know how to manifest bigger and better relationships, finances, and health.  You, too, can have whatever it is you desire in your life, as long as you become aware of what is working for you and what is not working for you, and change it.  Realizing that all you have now is a blessing; being grateful for what you have; forgiving yourself and others; and loving yourself and others will support you in getting through menopause easily and bring you the happiness you deserve.
