According to Dr. Toni LaMotta, the Midlife Mentor, if you’re thinking about reinventing yourself the first step you need to take is to “get clear”. Getting clear can involve getting rid of old stuff that’s bogging you down. It can include settling old debts, forgiving others and yourself, or making amends. Whether it’s physical possessions or old emotional baggage, letting go of it can free you to create what’s next. It can also involve ditching old relationships that get in your way like friends who aren’t really friends, and hanging out with new people.
Getting clear can also be about clarifying what you don’t want so you can determine what you do want. Toni loves to help people “get clear” so they can rediscover themselves. She says “being clear is more important than doing” and encourages people to allow their lives to give them the answers.
