Since I turned 50 my life has gone through a total reinvention. I’m happier now than I’ve ever been. I’ve learned how to be resilient, positive and the biggest bonus of all. I actually like my life. But it’s been a wild ride and I want you to to know you’re not the only one finding mid life a wee bit challenging. Let’s do this together!
What about me.
Born in the UK, our family of four emigrated to Canada when I was just a little person. Growing up in Canada was almost like England but with killer winters. Soon we were emigrating again south to Boston. I eventually got tired of snow and decided to follow the coast further down to Florida where I met my first husband. Ever the wanderer, in my late forties, I moved again to Texas where my reinvention began.
Shortly after I turned 50 it felt like my life crashed and burned. I was literally at the lowest point in my life and that’s saying something. Being that age made reinvention even harder. Fortunately I pulled myself out of the crash site and found a way to like myself for the first time.
My latest move was to Colorado (I know, they have snow there, but they said it wouldn’t be that bad!). In CO I met Jim, my partner. He and I have decided to split our time between CO and the south coast of England. Actually I think it was mostly my idea but I think it’s growing on him.
I started my blog this year soon after finishing my first book (a milestone). I love to read and write about what interests me (and you). I’ll be writing about travel, how to start a new life abroad, where I’m visiting next and what styles I’m loving. Plus how I change my thoughts and attitude to keep happy.
Starting this blog at this stage in my life has some shaking their heads, but my feeling is it ain’t over. I’ve enjoyed a long creative career in marketing, advertising and technology and I started an interior design business at the height of the crash. There’s still a lot left to do!
Confession. This girl is a dyed in the wool introvert. It’s not easy for me to put myself out there. But if I can help one other person feel positive about their future, it will be worth it.
My book and this blog are my way of sharing my story, hoping you can read between the lines and take away what you’re ready for. Believe me if I can do it anyone can. We’re in this together.
I truly care about staying relevant, plugged in and inspired throughout the rest of my life and I’d love to hear from you if you feel the same. Why not grab my Free Relationship Karma Guide while you’re browsing?
