You know what’s weird? That even though my relationship is over, I still struggle to find time for myself. How can this be? I live alone now, so you’d think it’d be no biggie to go get that long, overdue mani-pedi, or tickets to that play, or take a road-trip over to that Botanical Garden. But, for some reason, these things never make it on my to-do-list. I’m too busy balancing the checkbook, counseling a friend, helping a relative or getting the car tuned up to stop and do for me!!! What is wrong with me?
The best I can come up with is that after 24 years of doing for you-know-who and neglecting Diane, I’ve developed a habit that’s hard to break. In some crazy, subconscious way, I’ve transferred that “habit” to others in my life. So, I’ve made a Pledge to Myself to help me stop this. Maybe you can take this Pledge too. “I Pledge Allegiance, to Myself, that I will DO something to pamper Your Name Here, for my own sanity, and to enjoy my new found freedom, for which I now stand and celebrate, one Woman, under no cheating man’s control, no longer invisible, wishing Happiness and Bliss for All Leftat50s!” Are you with me? It’s pamper time!
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!
