I’m Diane Burroughs, and I am the face behind my blog, Leftat50.com. My 24–year-relationship ended when I was cheated on and left the year I turned 50. Needless to say, this was a painful, life-changing (and life-shattering) event. I had no idea what my future would be. How I would make a living? Where I was going to live? My Future was Unknown. How scary is it to realize that when you’re 50?
As I shared my life dilemma with others, one thing became abundantly clear – Everyone knew a woman around my age who was going through the exact same thing!
I was not alone in this. I decided it was time for me to get up off the floor and share my journey with the Group of Leftat50 Gals who were done wallowing and ready to live a life of their own making. And that is how Leftat50 was born.
Now, thousands of women on new life journeys are sharing and encouraging each other! This has brought me so much joy! After all the heartache, my sense of humor has returned. If you need a good laugh, check me out at Diane Does. And if part of your life journey at this time is experiencing the “joys” of menopause, then guffaw and share one of my Menoplausible moments.
Leftat50 is a place where you can emerge from your own dark tunnel of “then” into the bright light of “now”. Check out my many blogs and you will undoubtedly relate to the joys, fears, hopes and dreams you deserve to create for yourself while traveling on the Road To The Rest of Your Life. And best of all, you don’t have to do it alone! Join me, won’t you?
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!
