You need to start plowing your life for those Great Expectations you’ve had buried away. You need to pull them out into the sunlight of your new life, dust them off and get going! I mean it. Even if you are down on yourself because this new life still doesn’t feel like your “Real” life. It is.
I know something else. For some reason, deep inside, you are still down on yourself. Even with the new hairdo, or new digs, or great solo vacation you just took or are planning. You think you need to hide the “freshman 10, 15 or 30” pounds you maybe gained during the Big Transition. Guess what? No one cares. You are beautiful and must stop hiding.
I know this because I am exactly like you. Even though I am a much happier gal, and I do lots of fun things, I also have been sloughing. I have! I don’t know why, exactly, I just can’t get “on the stick”.
So, I’m offering you a challenge. As of today. This day, June 23, 2016, we are all going to take our great “expectations” and turn them into our reality. I don’t care what method you use, and I will keep you abreast of mine.
For gosh sakes, this year is half-way over. Did you stick to your resolution? Um, that’s okay. As you know, Leftat50 is a no judgement zone. But it’s also a “no Bs’ing ourselves” zone. Got it? Good. Now get going. Lets all “expect” more from ourselves today, so we stand a bit taller tomorrow. Osteoporosis be damned!
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!
