Three Sixty Conversations with Lauren Derrett on glowing old and staying curious
Welcome to episode 10. Today I am chatting to Lauren Derrett formerly @this_girl_is_enough now known as That Midlife Life (@thatmidlifelife). Lauren is amazing, not because of what she does but because of who she is a nearly 45 year old woman standing firmly in her truth, embracing the privilege of ageing and making peace with the parts she’s not quite ready to give a big squeeze. I must mention what Lauren does as she does LOADS (because of who she is).
Lauren and I talk about her new hasthag #glowingold where she celebrates her journey through life, share appreciation for ‘bits and bobs’ and go deep on not allowing ourselves to be defined by one chapter in our books of life. We also talk about staying curious and how to manage feelings when the title ‘mother’ doesn’t feel good.
Lauren’s book recommendations:
The Gift of Imperfection - Brene Brown
The Self Care Revolution - Suzy Reading
What I know for Sure - Oprah Winfrey
My Thoughts Exactly - Lilly Allen

We discuss domestic abuse. We do not talk about incidents but we do discuss the emotional impact, responsibility and shame.
The second Three Sixty Day Retreat takes place on Saturday at the cosy Clapton Laundry, London. Tickets and information here. The first one sold out so… you know.
