I am a woman of 50 years..I started the next leg of my lifes journey by getting back to what I imagined my life was to be when I was 18, before my dream train was derailed by the unanticipated detours of life.
My children went out on their own and I felt completely lost. I felt as though they defined me as a person. What was I going to do? How was I going to continue with my life when they no longer needed me? Then it hit me, I was going to get back on track and do the things I was always passionate about. Live my life for myself, life after 50 was a great milestone to begin again.
I opened my own landscape design company and am getting down and dirty. I have discovered though that my body is not going to be able to keep up this pace and strain for an extended period of time so I am already planning to morph my business into growing and supplying plant material to retail customers and local landscapers.
I feel great about my choices and feel this path is brought me full circle and I feel aazing. I want to be a role model for my kids and peers, show them that you are NEVER to old to LIVE out your dreams!!!
If my best life could be reimagined, I would dream that from here on out at the tender age of 55 my best life would be now and all through my 60's! I've worked hard all my life raised 2 sons and never had much money, infact most of the time I never knew how I was going to pay my bills on time. Now I dream and pray that my best years are ahead of me, I would be self sufficient, settled into the same house the rest of my years with both my sons married with children, with me being self sufficient and not only able to take care of my bills but to have a little extra to spend on my grandchildren or go somewhere with my friends without constant worries about my bills and my pain, stress-free living in a secure peaceful existence in my senior years and with good health so I could enjoy a the dream life I imagine in my 60's, and 70's!
