Have you ever looked in the mirror and asked “Who Am I Now”? As Baby Boomers, we’ve been so busy ‘adulting’ and keeping up with expectations for decades, it is not surprising that we lose touch with ourselves as we evolve and change over time.
Growth, transformation, and reinvention with a purpose and a plan are essential to a fulfilled life.
Each Wednesday, Isabel Alexander, self-proclaimed Mistress of Reinvention, unpacks her personal evolution system, Lift As You Climb, and engages guests to share their Ah-Ha moments of recognizing their evolved, authentic selves.
Be inspired by others who embrace “This is who I am now!” and choose who they want to become next as they love their life and live their legacy.
This podcast celebrates Identity, Influence and Impact at every age and every stage of life!
Hello, Eh!... Isn't that what you expected?... Now that I'm in Canada? Oh yes, good natured Canadians always get a chuckle out of how we are believed to add Eh... To the end of everything. This is Isabel Banerjee, checking in with you from Canada, as promised. Our last episode of the Lift As You Climb podcast... I told you I was packing up the mic, packing up the podcast equipment, putting it in a container... And I was catching a plane to Canada.
I'm here, checking in.....
Merriam-Webster dictionary defines irreconcilable difference as the inability to agree on most things or important things.
In my case, as for many ‘Grey Divorces’, that was the reason cited for the reason to end our marriage; irreconcilable differences.
No fault, no blame, no list of shortcomings, broken promises, or unrealized dreams, no litany of annoying habits, no explanations, no defense - just two words; irreconcilable differences.
No long-drawn-out court battle and big legal bills...

Eyes wide shut.
I refused to acknowledge the change that was coming at me like a freight train.
I refused to take responsibility for my part in this change.
I lied to myself that everything was just fine. Just a rough patch. Just temporary relationship growing pains.
Not my idea.
Not my choice.
Not the right timing.
Not the future I planned.
Not the story I told myself...
Change Your Mind.
Change Your Future.
Change Your Attitude.
Change Your Relationship.
Change Your Relationship With Your Self.
Change Your Paradigm.
As women, we've been teased about changing our minds as easily as changing our hair color. The inference is, of course, that we make changes too easily, too often.
I know this is not true.
More often, we stay stuck with a choice, made with different expectations that are not or no longer realized.
Change can be good.
Change can be necessary...
Change Decoded – My System for Difficult DecisionsOften even when our circumstances, and our gut, tell us it is time, even absolutely necessary, to make a change, we struggle to make the decision and act on it.
I developed a system to help me download and declutter all the confusion and fear; “false emotions appearing real”, and confidently make the choice that served me best.
The Change Decoded System works for personal and business choice analysis...
I really had to drag my ass out of bed this morning. And that says something because I am a morning person. I do love waking up before the sun. I love beginning the day when it's quiet out there in the world, and I start to see the colors creeping into the sky. I think what am I going to do with this day, this time, this opportunity to grow again, evolve, live my life as an entrepreneur, as a woman who has many encores ahead of me?
Today was hard...
If your nose is pressed to the glass, it’s impossible to see much, and at best, you have a distorted picture of your reality.
You might even end up cross-eyed!
With a myopic or shortsighted view of your life, you literally cannot see the forest for the trees or anything else clearly.
But, if you allow yourself to step back, or, in this analogy, sit back in the driver’s seat of your life, get behind the wheel and head out on a road trip, you will be amazed how much clarity you’ll gain...
Alice in Wonderland isn’t the only one having trouble fitting into her circumstances and environment frequently.
As a woman, evolving, transforming, and growing to fit the part for my next stage of life, business idea, personal reinvention or relationship change, I think I could write a sequel to Lewis Carroll’s story and title it “Womanhood Wonderland”...
What is your expiry date?
Seriously! Isn't that how society has planned it for us as women in our sixties and beyond, when we reach the “a certain age” stage, we are supposed to just go gently into that sweet night of obsolescence...
