50 and LOVIN' it!
Growing old is mandatory, but growing UP is optional 🙂
I’m such a believer in you are what you think you are. You can think you are old and have nothing left to offer. You can think you are up there in years but have SO much to offer. And you’d be right. I’m there. I’m 50 (celebrated last summer) and if I’m truly honest I feel I literally “came into my own” at that age.
- 26 I felt scared; I was past the age of 25 where you could understandbly still be considered young and innocent;
- 30’s I was a Mom focussing on being a Mom and doing the best for our little gaffer (who’s 22 now!).
- 40’s I was learning all about me and realizing what I REALLY and I mean REALLY wanted to do in life; to offer people…the confidence was building through experience and dare I say it “wisdom”.
- 50 was where I felt it all come together.
I’m looking forward to offering an evening that will help connect women of all ages. I’ve done it before and it was incredible..so stay tuned.I remember about 10 years ago holding a door for what “appeared” to be a very elderly lady. She was bent over and couldn’t open it herself. When I did so, she turned to me with a smile to thank me and her words were (I’ll never forget them): “Thank you SO much my dear. I’m so old…..I’m 68 you know”. She’d talked herself into being way older than her years. My Mom at the time was this woman’s age and still teaching a bazillion fitness classes a week. But of course I wouldn’t have said it to her. But to me it was such a comparison. One woman had talked herself into it being over while the other was still going strong. If you are young: the world is your oyster. Believe YOU have so much wisdom to share with the world. Reach out to older women you admire to help you along the way; I can’t tell you how much we LOVE doing this! (Reach out to me HERE). If you are closer in age to me; older or younger PLEASE please, please know you have so much to offer the world but only YOU can determine if you can or can’t still do what you could. Can’t do it now? That’s okay; you can work on becoming fitter, stronger still; time is not lost. Only you can talk yourself into – or out of – it. Want to have some help? A kick-start to fabulousness? You too can reach out to me HERE) I’d love to hear from you. Keep your shine going. Hope this sings to you! Hugs’n’sparkles, xo
