Leftat50’s we all know the plot of our breakup: First comes the hiding. Then the healing. Then the remaking. Then the Red Carpet Debut! Our lives are not movies because gosh knows they do not ever go “according to script!” The twists and turns of a plot we could never have predicted are devastating. Healing occurs however. After the emotional horror, there is a surprise ending we could NEVER have seen coming!
“You mean the woman triumphs in the end? All on her own? Without a man’s help? That never happens in movies,” you are thinking. Exactly.
That is why this New Life of Our Own Making After Being Left At 50-Thing teaches us once and for all that “life is not a movie.” Thank God for that.
The misery of our marriage turned us into “hiders.” Not wanting to be publicly seen as The Unhappy Couple. Because the camera never lies! Looking back at the few pictures of the Ex and I near the end, it is painfully obvious that we were bad actors. Dead eyes. Phony smiles. Zero body contact. We could not even fake affection for the split-second it takes for a camera to snap a photo!
Who knew during those difficult days that change was coming! That one day, after the age of 50, I would make a documentary that got into a women’s film festival and I would walk a red carpet!
Ladies, it’s time to roll out the red carpet of your new life. To take a stroll around, I dare say, strut! Give yourself the Star treatment from here on out. Because guess what? There’s gonna be about a million sequels!
