Life Happens – Health

For women 50 and over or soon entering this new age range, this is a space for me to share my experiences in midlife with you. Embrace your age, wisdom, and this new chapter with me.

Just Say Yes

My word for the year in 2024 was YES. All caps go for it and just say yes. As we journey through life, each decade brings its own set of challenges, triumphs, and lessons. For women over 50, this stage can be particularly transformative. As this is my last year in my...

Your menopausal today is not your menopausal tomorrow

There are so many symptoms of menopause: hot flashes, weight gain, memory loss, body odor, sleepless nights, mood changes... Your story may not be like mine but whatever you are currently struggling with I can guarantee it will change it will get better. I was...

Dang how is is March 1st already?

As I celebrate my milestone year of turning 60 I am continually amazed at how time is speeding up. I mean I felt like my 50's flew right by and now we are already in our third month of the year. Wasn't it a week ago that I was taking down the Christmas tree and then...

How I deal with my claustrophobia

At 50+ I am Just Getting Started

If you follow me you know that I am living a bolder life at 50. Every week I am committed to trying something new-it can be a simple as a new hike or new local restaurant or broader and bolder like traveling alone to a new foreign destination. The reason I created 50...

Celebrating life at 60, well almost!

Born in 1964. In August of this year I will be celebrating my 60th birthday and all I can say at this point is my goodness how those years flew by. 20, 30 and even 40 not so fast but dang my 50's are on like rocket speed. And I don't say this with sadness I say this...

Embracing Change in 2024

At the year end each year I like to take the time to reflect on the past year and understand what worked what didn't work. What I need to move on from and what I need to embrace and bring forward. Embracing change can be an empowering and fulfilling journey for women...

The Benefits at Life at 50

There are some many reasons for women to embrace life at 50+. First off there is the obvious, we are alive and healthy and we get to celebrate every year. And then there is the confidence that comes with age. We wear what we want , ignoring the term age appropriate,...
