A Girl Can NOT Dream, Can’t She?

A girl can choose to NOT dream, can’t she?

Can’t I just get through today? Do I constantly have to be under that “grocery store magazine” pressure?

“Make Your Dreams Come True – Today!” “What Are You Waiting For!” “Make That Bucket List!” “Lose weight now!” “Travel Now” “Dye Your Hair Purple, and Get Muscles, and Trek Through Mountain ranges! – Now!”

It feels to me that in the past few years, life keeps speeding up to this insane pace of always doing, planning to do, training to do, learning to do, and on and on.

No matter how much I do, I still feel like I’m not doing enough!  I swear, there are days I am “doing” things for fifteen hours straight and I still feel like I didn’t do enough when my head finally hits the pillow.

“It feels to me that in the past few  years, life keeps speeding up to this insane pace of always doing, planning to do, training to do, learning to do, and on and on.”

No wonder we can’t sleep!  All of us gals of a certain age feel like we are under the “What’s the next chapter of your life gonna be – Huh? Huh?” microscope!!!  Everybody take a chill pill cause maybe we don’t know yet.

This is both positive and negative, but I think mostly positive.  That’s because we really do have options.  Now more than ever, we are being catered to by various industries who are targeting us “youthful” fifty-somethings. And that’s great.

But also exhausting.

So, instead of giving into the self-imposed and media-driven pressure to constantly be “living our best life” every single moment, I sometimes am turning off all that outside chatter and just “chilling'”.  I don’t always need the pressure of dreams and next steps and goals.  We are smart and we are strong and capable enough to accomplish all of those things – when we choose to!

But some days, especially of late with all that is going on in the world, coupled with so many expectations and goal-overloads, I feel I just need to lay down for twenty minutes or so.  And not consciously do anything.  I need to “while away” for awhile.

A Girl can NOT dream if she wants to!  See ya in twenty!

We all go through major life transitions when relationships end… Through this website, I will share my thoughts as I walk the path of “New-Self” discovery. It doesn’t matter which side of 50 you are on. The real question is, Are you ready to live life? To forge a Path of Your Own Making (For a change!)? Then stop dwelling over the What-Might-Have-Beens and join me. Share your thoughts here, comment on mine, and let’s do this together!
