We have survived due to our near miss.
If we hadn’t been Leftat50, we would have nearly missed out on living a happier, ecstatic life. How sad would that have been?
Because you know what we didn’t miss? We didn’t miss out on that soul-killing, loveless marriage “until death do we part”. We got to part much sooner than that. Hoo-ray!
We are truly lucky women. Through all the loss and pain, and the stressful distrust of our own future instincts for what our lives will be, we know on some level that none of that chaotic thinking or self-doubt or fear is important today.
Right now. This moment. We are realizing that longing for our expired relationship would be like digging in the garbage to feed ourselves with yesterdays scraps. We can no longer choke it down.
We want to nourish our hearts and our souls with the most luscious morsels of experience that life has to offer us. And we are excitedly realizing that there is now going to be an endless amount of those!
If tears have been falling lately, keep this post with you. You need a little reminder every now and then that you have been the recipient of a Happy-Life Miracle. You just need to accept that deeply into your psyche. And the taste buds that have been numbed for so long will come to appreciate the exquisite taste of this new feast, that’s called Your Life!
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!
