I have been blogging and online in other forms for years, but I have decided it’s time to embrace what life after fifty has to offer.
For those of you who don’t know me: I’m a mom, spouse, indie author, fibre artist, part-time library assistant, pet owner and so much more. I decided to start this blog because all of what I do doesn’t fit into my craft or author blogs. Plus, there are other avenues yet to be explored.
I am a creative person, and my creativity isn’t limited to only words and crafts. It carries out into other parts of my life and into my garden. There’s so much to be shared, and since I am now over fifty I find myself feeling short on time. Do you ever feel there just aren’t enough hours in the day?
My goal with this blog is to help you become more about who you want to be than who you feel you have to be. I have spent a lifetime trying to be someone I’m not, and finally decided “screw it; I am who I am and it’s time to embrace it”. Life is about growing, learning and gaining experience. We never stop doing any of those things, because our world is constantly changing.
I have decided to fight the attitude I had of “growing old gracefully” so today I dyed my hair to cover the grey, started this new blog and am going to make a more conscious effort to drop about twenty to thirty pounds. And trust me, the latter will be the most difficult of all. Plus, I’m going to spend more time living and less time worrying (I hope).
I invite you to join me on my journey of life after fifty; I’m sure I’m in for one hell of a ride.
