You all probably know by now that I attended the Forever Fierce Meet Up at Chico’s in New York City on October 7. You can read all about that event here. So many fabulous women came together that day on the Upper West Side of Manhattan to represent the Midlife Revolution which was founded by the beautiful and brilliant Catherine Grace O’Connell. But today’s post is not about this powerful movement. And it’s not about the meet up event either. Rather, this post is about an amazingly talented woman whom I met that day.

I have to say that I don’t know all that much about Caytha as I only met her for a few brief moments. What I could discern from those few moments, however, is this…she is extremely outgoing, well-spoken, relatable, funny, and very passionate about her work. Her talent became evident when I began watching Season 1 of The Other F Word. With a fervor for making the midlife struggle for women everywhere a thing to be embraced rather than hidden away, she has created a series that will make you laugh, cry, wonder, debate, and feel completely and totally normal as you find your way through the craziness of these midlife years.
The Other F Word follows the lives of four women in the New York City area who find themselves dealing with empty nests, separation from loved ones, death, and that age old issue of rediscovering themselves at this ever so confusing period of life. This midlife period, which begins for many women in their Fifties (hence, the other F word), presents a struggle that I would venture to say none of us anticipated in our Twenties or early Thirties. As a woman in my Forties, I am finding many of the issues addressed in this series to be quite relevant to my life. And even those that may not yet be relevant, I can see the future in this hilariously real and raw production.
Season 1 is presented in 8 episodes with a run time of anywhere from 4 to 13 minutes each. I actually really enjoyed the brevity of each episode since I could very realistically complete watching one episode before the endless interruptions of children and every day life take over. Season 2, which just premiered on Friday, October 13, consists of 6 episodes, each with a run time of just under 20 minutes.
I actually am glad that I was only recently introduced to this series because I did not have to wait for the Season 2 release upon completion of Season 1. The conclusion of Season 1 left me anxiously wondering what will happen next. Are these wonderfully confused and tormented characters going to explore the darker sides of their desires or will they remain faithfully loyal to the path they chose decades ago? Well, I have embarked on Season 2 and I will not answer this question for you. You will have to take a brief moment out of your own very busy schedules and watch an episode or two to see if the story pulls you in as it did me.
If you need to laugh your way through the midlife struggle, shed a few tears, or just feel a level of normalcy amidst the most foreign feelings in the world, then I highly recommend that you take a little peak into the lives of these four brilliantly cast characters! View it on Amazon right here.
