The Joy of Choosing a New Path at Mid-Life

When I was left at the age of fifty, I stood in my kitchen and looked out the window alot.

There’d been an upheaval of every aspect of my life. But even in my grief, I sensed that out in the world a new place was waiting for me. Unfortunately, I did not yet have the courage to go out there and take it.

Who the heck wants to take a new place in life at fifty? The fact that this situation was never in my plans left me sad and angry.

After months planted in that spot gazing through my kitchen window, I realized it was time to stop standing still. I had best get a move on or whatever my new life was wanting to be would pass me by.

It was time to unload the heaviness of a heartache that kept me rooted in a life that was over. My new reality was all up to me! It was a terrifying and awesome concept.

With an improved force of will I, I ran a comb through my hair and put on some gloss. Then I changed my mind and wiped it off, and stepped out. I ventured into fresh air, horn honks and airplanes carrying adventurous folks to new experiences. This was how I began the way forward. I have arrived at my place in the world. There have been many exciting experiences I never would have dreamed of.

“Stuck at the sink”? There is a new place in this world waiting for you. And you know it. Make a decision to get out there once and for all. It’s time to achieve those goals that have been waiting patiently to come to fruition.

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!
