More on the Fertile Void (the female midlife crisis)

I just read Suzanne Braun Levine's post on the "fertile void" and I was relieved to find that this ambiguity will end at some point.

I left my employment in Dec of 2007 because lacking a work-life balance became unbearable. I was divorced six months before leaving my job and felt that what I needed was the time to reflect on the next direction in my life.

Well, a year and a half later, I'm still unsure of what it is I want to do. I get impatient with myself because it would seem I should know by now. Goodness, I'm 53 years old and have had a year and a half to figure it out!!

I undertook a course in Judicial Reporting simply because it's a lucrative, freelance opportunity and I'm still working on certification speeds.

However, I don't love it, which was one of my requirements for this stage of life.

I would love to hear from other women about their journey to authenticity or self-actualization. How did you traverse this fertile void and what tips do you have for those of us still stuck on the journey?
