I’ve spent the last five years growing certain areas of my life….
my thoughts, my reactions, and my relationships. I’ve let go of so many negative and limiting beliefs and thoughts and also moved away from toxic people.
Since I’ve hit the 55 mark, my need for even more growth keeps me awake at night. The idea that I am halfway to 60 fuels the urgency to live a full life, not become invisible, and most important not waste any more very precious time.
I’ve conquered the calmness of life now. Very rarely does anything bother me for any length of time. Yes, there have been stressful moments, but rolling around in the depth of despair and worry does not lessen the stress. This I know.
The people in my life are good for me. Plain and simple. I had an aversion to drama or others gossip.
I feel my development of the last five years is solid. I won’t slip. So, I feel confident I can now move forward.
Like my blog?
I read a very interesting article just recently which spoke to this need I have. The author recommended remaking yourself every five years. It’s been five years since my last remake, and I certainly feel the desire now.
Where to begin?
Health/fitness – ever since I turned 51 I’ve consistently gained weight. While nothing really changed in my eating or exercise habits, (except I drink less alcohol) it seems the “middle-aged spread” has taken over my midsection and my ass. I’ve had more health issues the past four years, then I’ve had my entire life.
Financial – I don’t mind working, but I want to work at what I want to work at, when I want to work at it and where I want to work at it.
Style/beauty – I’m tired of wearing black, and feeling frumpy. I won’t wear heels or mini skirts anymore, but it doesn’t mean I can’t look put together. I’ve really taken my skin care to the next level with Beauty Counter (and the results are showing)!
However, I need to stay true to my need for simplicity. The balance will be critical for me.
I’m beginning the journey of my five year plan and make-over.
Stay tuned for what that will entail.
