Do you feel invisible? Want to change that? Consider my four reasons why midlife women disappear into the ether!

If you do one of the following things, reconsider!

  1. Lie about your age
  2. Hide yourself
  3. Sexify yourself
  4. Try to look 30-ish

As the wise Susan Colby of Girls Gone 50 said:

By fudging our age to avoid becoming an invisible middle-aged woman, we make ourselves invisible middle-age women. Every time we tell that little white lie, we erase a little more of our true worth, diminish our lifetime value, disown our long nights spent battling demons and countless days slaying dragons. We have earned the right to tell the truth that we are powerful and pretty damn awesome.
