Finding yourself at on the edge of the 50 milestone warrants thought about our next stage of life. Some of us glide into our 50th jubilee without fretting. Some of us, due to life circumstances, resist celebrating the milestone. Some of us stare into the birthday abyss with regret. Some of us, with exaltation! How are you feeling? Or how did you feel if you’ve already begun your next chapter?
The one piece of advice I can give you is to find the positivity in turning 50! Look upon the milestone as something good that is happening to you! A new chapter awaits! A new decade appears! A new chance for change is here!
What are you going to do with it?
That’s the key question. What are you going to do with the next 50 years if you get the chance to be here for that long? Are you going to live your life the way you did the last 50 years? Or are you going to shake up your world a bit by trying a new hairstyle? Learning to speak a new language? Traveling? Changing jobs? Starting yoga or meditating? Exercising more or eating better? Or are you feeling fine with everything in your life?
If you are feeling fine with everything in your life now, then please stand for I long to applaud you! Congratulations to you! Woo HOO! I’m impressed and you’ve got my attention! Now please share with us how you’ve gotten to this place!
Because most women I’ve met find 50 daunting and begin questioning the next decade and the last 5 decades. They begin to question where they are in life, who they are with, what they are doing and so forth. For me, I look at 50 as a chance to rearrange my life a little better, to improve what is working for me, to take a few chances and learn more about myself and to take more time to enjoy my life!
How about you?
