I’m super excited to share with you my next series of 3 podcasts which are all about the different phases of life and how they overlap.

Most people are living in overlapping phases of life.  I really want to address this topic and explore what it means for you.

This is something of a storytelling podcast – there’s not a lot of direct action for you to take, but lots of learning!

I’ve actually been wanting to record this podcast series for about 9 months, but it’s a topic that is best approached when the timing is just right!  January is all about organizational projects, March is about decluttering… May is the perfect time to reflect!

It’s all centered around what I consider to be the 4 phases of a woman’s life.

There are three big life events that affect these phases of life – having children, becoming a caretaker for someone, and when someone close to you passes away.

This week’s focus is on having children.

When we have kids, we go into full blown accumulation mode. Even the most minimalist of people can’t resist accumulation when it comes to babies!

As more and more millennials are tending towards having children in their early 40's, what does this mean in terms of the stages in life?

Having a baby in your 40's = an overlap of the accumulation and the survival stage.

Next week, I look at how becoming a caretaker for someone can affect your phase of life.
