Welcome to 50!

Turning 50 is a monumental event. I always imagined that at half a century I would be a wise, strong, balanced, kind, confident and powerful woman who had it all figured out.

As it turns out - I'm the same person I've always been. Getting to 50 is the same as getting to any age of your life. Just trying to be the best person you can be.

Cheers! G

Everything starts somewhere

And so here I start. One year and about three months still I turn 50, and I wanted to make the half century birthday feeling much closer to the woman I want to be than I feel today.

Most of my birthdays have gone by without much introspection - I had a great party when I turned 40, but I didn't think about the age much.

I have started to feel some of the effects of getting older - the physical effects certainly do make me sit up and take notice. I am also noticing changes in how I think, how I feel about things, and what I want in life. I'm in the midst of life stage changes to do with kids growing up, to do with work and what it means, and what I want from it.

Then there's the whole menopause thing which I have just begun to explore - and I find myself shocked by how little information or talk there is out there about something that half of the world experiences.

My main goal for this blog is to connect with other women who are in a similar stage of life, not just the half century birthday, but the thoughts and feelings that come with having lived a while and seen some life.

Let's talk and laugh and maybe even help each other.
