Language of the Soul (Laura Campbell)
(The Open Nesters Episode 12)
If You Only Have a Minute For Us Push Play on the Red Button
Laura helps us look at the spiritual essence of our years after 50 when we have the time and space to be still for a while, rather than always do. I (Tessa) was so delighted to do this interview. Laura is a Certified Life Coach, and is a transition and leadership strategist. Laura has an MBA from NYU and is a widely published writer having been published in such publications as The Huffington Post and Medium.
I watched and witnessed Laura’s journey for many years, observing her grow in her wisdom. I wanted to call this episode “growing our wisdom muscle.” And I am so excited for you to hear the incredible knowledge and wisdom from this very special lady.
A few thoughts from Laura
The fastest thing way to get want you want is to let go of what you don’t.
We are always at the starting line: there actually is no finish line.
I have downsized homes more than once. I have gotten rid of 80% of the stuff that I’ve every known, which was incredibly liberating.
I want to shift the conversation on how we view the different stages of aging.
There have been many of life’s milestones in my life that all seemed to happen early in my life. Marriage, kids, divorce and a second long-term relationship – all well before I was 50 years old.
My “wisdom” come from my ability to understand my various life transitions.

There are two words that I believe hold women back more than any others; “sure” and “fine”.
In fact, I find these words cringeworthy.
They are cop outs, cover ups and almost always, total bullshit. They are what women often say when they are not comfortable speaking their truth; when they are afraid to say what they really want.
The problem with using these words, is that they prevent you from doing and becoming what you truly desire and ultimately lead you to mediocrity in your life and career. A few years back, I broke up with mediocrity, I had had enough.
