I think as we age, we tend to pay a little more attention to those small indicators we hear every day in our heads. Reminders that time is so very precious, that we need to act on those things we still wish to accomplish.
We tend to love a little deeper and to cherish those times spent with our loved ones a little more.
We finally develop the ability to not be so concerned of what others might think of us, realising we all possess a variety of weaknesses & faults. It is what makes us human.
Over my 50+ years, I have learned much about myself, yet there is still so much to uncover. In more recent years, I have discovered that I enjoy writing & thus the creation of this little blog. I enjoy sharing my thoughts & my experiences, but equally as important, I love reading about you & your experiences.
I believe we can all benefit from sharing with one another, whether it be happy or sad. We do so in the hopes that, in speaking out & sharing our stories, we may reach someone who who is on a similar journey. Perhaps in the process, we may offer a wee bit of guidance, share a laugh together, or simply touch a life in a positive way.
It is with this sentiment that I hope to write. You do not have to be over 50 to join in the conversation. The name is simply my reference to the fact that there is indeed, Life After 50. In fact, there is life beyond all ages, we only need to grab hold & experience it.
Life after 50 has its ups & downs, but I wouldn’t trade my life experience for anything. I hope to share with you & I hope that you share with me. Together, we may impact each other & grow from that connection.
