I resisted it at first. Then I realized that by being invisible, I am in a position of power. I float on the perimeter while the younger women are vying for position and posturing for center stage.
Then, just when there is a lull in the action, I step in with the words of wisdom, the power of KNOWING, and the wisdom borne of experience and chutzpah…and I calmly, authoritatively, eloquently…state my position.
Suddenly…magically…I am not invisible. I am a wealth of resource and support which I freely give. I have nothing to prove; I am successful and good and kind, and I want to nurture the young women. I am clearly visible to myself. And I don’t need to compete. I am confident, happy, and a doggone good role model.
And…I’m 55! Woohoo!
