What has happened that I didn’t expect, was that I am no longer pining for my old life nor terrified of my future.
When I was first leftat50, I kind of stood in my kitchen a lot and looked out the window. Out there, in the world, there was a new place for me now. But, did I have the courage to go out there and take it?
After months of kind of standing still, in that spot in front of my kitchen sink, futzing around to kill some more time instead of going on with my life, I realized I better get a move on, or “life,” whatever that was going to be, was going to pass me by. I had to gather up my guts and paint on some gloss and get out in the sunshine and fresh air with a light heart. I had to unload the heaviness. That “heavy” feeling was keeping me firmly planted in the past. And as comfortable as I thought I was back there, I knew that was not my reality now. What was my reality? Well, that was up to me! What a terrifying yet awesome concept! What a gift that Life had given me!
So, I unstrapped the heavy heart. I ran a comb through my hair. And I stepped into the Sunshine, to begin the way forward. If you are feeling “stuck at the sink,” I urge you to have the courage to walk away from it and into the Sunshine of The Rest of Your Life. To quote a wise person we all grew up with, “Oh, the places you’ll go!”
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!)?
