The Next Chapter: Never Assume You're Done

Find Renewal and Reinvention in Life's Next Chapter with Liz Lennon

Are you feeling stuck in a routine, longing for more purpose and passion but unsure how to make a change? Listen to Liz Lennon's inspiring story of personal reinvention on the latest Choosing Change podcast episode.

For over a decade, Liz found fulfilment raising her family in rural Scotland. But after an empty feeling set in during the pandemic, she realised it was time to start a new chapter. Through honest self-reflection and support from loved ones, Liz discovered the small changes needed to reignite her spark.

What began as a weekend trip viewing flats in Glasgow turned into a bold leap of faith as Liz and her husband swiftly sold their home and moved to the bustling city. In just a few short months, Liz has filled her days with the arts, yoga, and urban adventures - finding the "salt" her life was missing.

In this episode we uncover the lessons of never assuming life's final chapter and discuss indepth. Discover how reflection, truth, support systems and thinking outside the box can lead you to unexpected places of personal growth too. Tune in for an uplifting story that will inspire you to keep writing your own life story, no matter where you're at in the journey.

I can’t wait for you to listen to this conversation.


Highlights from this episode:

  • Never assume you're in the last chapter of your life and don't be afraid to make changes to pursue personal growth and fulfillment.
  • Take time for self-reflection to gain clarity on your true needs and desires. Our inner wisdom often has the answers.
  • Have honest conversations with yourself and your support network when contemplating changes.
  • Surround yourself with people who encourage you to explore new possibilities rather than feel confined.
  • Small changes or additions can spark renewal, like adding "salt" to your situation.
  • Support from an understanding partner can make a big difference when considering life changes.

"Maybe what I needed to hear was think outside the box. If you don't like the box, look outside and see what's there." - Liz Lennon

"I'm a firm believer, I've always believed that we have the answers to every question inside us. But we shut them off. We've learned to shut them up from a very young age, because I don't know society, education, work, all those things."  - Liz Lennon
