When you turn fifty, it's considered "middle aged" and it's no secret that you probably have less years ahead of you than behind you. You're also nearing retirement age and for most women our ability to have children (naturally) also starts to fade.
It's all very disconcerting and makes you feel like there's nothing to look forward to! Well, I'm here to tell you: THE DEVIL IS A LIAR!
Fifty is not the end. It's the beginning of whatever you want it to be! Change jobs, start a business, write a book, dye your hair, shave your head, start a garden, redecorate your house, sell your house, wear a bikini, move to another state! As long as you have breath in your body, what comes next is totally up to you!
"We live in a youth-obsessed culture that is constantly trying to tell us that if we are not young, and we’re not glowing, and we’re not hot, that we don’t matter. I refuse to let a system or a culture or a distorted view of reality tell me that I don’t matter. I know that only by owning who and what you are can you start to step into the fullness of life. Every year should be teaching us all something valuable. Whether you get the lesson is really up to you." – Oprah Winfrey
