When you are Left at 50, the natural urge after the panic subsides, is to try to get back on the Main Path of your life. The course you thought you’d be on at this age. The one that was majorly detoured when your relationship ended. You were initially in shock and thought you’d hit a Dead End. But now you are yearning to right your course. Before you get back behind the wheel, a thought you never expected may hit you.
What if you don’t get back on the Main Road? What if, while your eyes have been opened to a painful truth, you take a turn? A turn down a side road you’ve never been down? I’m not saying sell the house, quit your job and move to Tahiti. (Unless that’s your dream 🙂 Perhaps instead, just a few minor departures from your daily existence of sleep, job, kids, housework, grocery shopping, bill-paying are in order. Fit in a mid-week movie? Dinner in a nearby town? A concert-on-a-whim? Test-drive that cute motorbike you’ve been eyeing in a shop window? Just. One. Thing. So, as this week unfolds, perhaps it’s time to take a trip down The Side Road. The Road A lot Less Traveled might be the right path for you to consider now. To not feel so stuck in your typical way of getting through a week. Think about it.
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!
