That means old, doesn’t it?!
There’s no way I’m old enough to be a midlife blogger!”
At least that’s what I thought a few years ago. You see I was at one of my favorite blogger conferences (TypeA Parent) and several of my favorite blogger people were going to dinner as a group. A midlife blogger group. Gulp! We were going to be joining a bunch of old ladies that had blogs.
Oh well, It would be a good learning experience if nothing else, right?
Imagine my shock and surprise when I got there. I was one of the oldest women in the room. Wait, what?! I’m a midlife blogger too?
Here I was thinking I was a young kid ( well not really that young) and all at once I find out I’m so much older than I thought. Like middle aged. Doesn’t midlife mean like 50?! Apparently not.
So I’m middle aged.
So what? It’s no big deal..
Or is it?
I used to think that midlife meant my life was half over. Now I see that it is truly just the beginning of A GREAT SECOND HALF!
I am finding that the older I get, the more comfortable I am in my own skin.
Pictures aren’t so scary anymore.
I’m worrying less and less about what others think.
I’m taking care of my own needs more often.
I’m finally planning for the future that I want.
And since midlife is all about changes, I’m working on some amazing changes for the rest of the year. And I can’t wait to share them with you!
