I started On with Life at 50 because at 50 I found myself starting over and felt like I had to share some of my experiences- good and bad- with you. I deliberated for months about telling the world about my separation and divorce because it meant writing about some uncomfortable things. Even though my divorce was amicable, there was some bitterness and anger I felt as my marriage ended.
The marriage is over
Our son graduated high school and we found ourselves having nothing left to keep the marriage going. In all reality my marriage ended because we were not meant to be married (to each other). The marriage is over and it hurts. We had too many differences about religion, sex, and dreams that we grew so far apart that we really had nothing to talk about in our marriage. There were ex wife, sister in law, and step kid issues that just chipped away at our marriage for 19 years. We get along and sometimes we talk as a married couple should because when we were married we really never could talk. Does this make sense?
On with life at 50
My journey at 50 has begun and I am scared out of my mind. I sometimes procrastinate and sometimes I just want to cry. It is not easy and sometimes I get overwhelmed with the thought of doing this on my own but it is better than the alternative of being unhappy for another 20 years. Read along as I share some of my experiences and mishaps along the journey to living my life my way. I will also share resources that I find helpful to work your dreams into reality.
My dreams are big
I love gardening, DIY, birdwatching, creating, and meeting new people. I decided to turn my dreams of writing, creating, and inspiring others into a career through my blogs. If you garden you can check out The Garden Frog where it is all about gardening, my furbabies, and bit of this and that; and soon I will launch DIY Dreams of Home. I am a bit unfocused so having outlets for all the voices in my head helps.
Cheers to a great 2017! And anytime you want to ask a question or share an experience feel free to contact me.
