I’m a mid-50s mom, with a fantastic life partner, a full time job, a mortgage and the house that goes with it. I’ve finally hit the time in my life when I can think more about how I want to live, where I want to go, and how to get there. I’m not one of those people who you read about and feel – inspired. I’ve never recovered from a debilitating illness that changed my life. I’m not an athlete of advanced, and inspirational, age. I’m not a fabulously hip style blogger, influencer, or any of the other things that many midlife and older bloggers seem to be. I’m a rather normal woman of a certain age, trying to figure things out.
I like travel, photography (mostly with my phone’s camera), food & drink, hiking, and yoga. Among other things. Not necessarily in that order.
I find myself looking ahead – pretty far ahead – and thinking that if I make it 30 more years, what do I hope for that time to look like? It seems that now is the time to consider these things, and to work out the choices and changes I need to make today for a healthy and happy tomorrow.
Oh, and at the same time, I want to enjoy the journey – is that asking too much? We shall see.
