Description View

How did I get here?

This question is far too common for women aged forty and over. You may be living life according to a script - go to school, get a job, get married, have children, etc. You spend decades working to make the lives of others better until you wake up and realize that your life hasn't been your own. Who are you? What do you do for your own enjoyment?

Colette Tracy's Both Sides Now: Reflections for Women at Midlife invites women to remember and recognize that they are unique individuals not required to conform to images and ideals created for them through advertisements or their mothers' generations. In it, Tracy hopes to provide women the words and examples needed for them to make room for their own happiness. Through interviews, articles and popular TV shows, Tracy explores:

  • "Comparisonitis" and the difficulty of accepting one's own beauty
  • "Superwoman" myth or maxim
  • Beauty in "rebuilding and rebirthing" at 40

Both Sides Now doesn't deny the pain, loss, and hardships that women can find at midlife and beyond. It celebrates the strength, courage, and wisdom gained from a life lived openly and honestly, and how women can call on these attributes to find joy.

Colette Tracy's Both Sides Now illustrates how you can make the second half of your life more joyous than the first!
