Introducing you to my blog’s new focus on the maturing woman, the woman in transition:
- A new empty nester,
- a widow,
- a divorcee,
- being downsized, or
- flat-out fired or
- none of the above.
Maybe you’re just looking for a reboot and you don’t even know why … Welcome!
What is it that happens to us when we hit that number? Maybe for you it was 50, for someone else it might have been 55 or 65. Whatever the age, every woman I’ve ever met, has an age where they start to reassess their life, and most importantly, the life they envision going forward.
Before I started, I wanted to know if I was on the right track, if I what I thought women wanted was even close. After all, I’m just one maturing woman, so I asked around. I asked on Facebook, LinkedIn and Next Door. I asked friends and colleagues. Here’s what they said:
- peace of mind
- even keel
- spiritual life
- weight loss
- worry and stress free
- and the award for the most popular answer goes to, “A secret man that sneaks into the house and cleans while I sleep.”
I’ve identified a few categories that I think will cover most of it, but I’m happy to add to it if you think of something else:
- Social Life
- Lifelong Learning
So, we’re going to start the journey on Monday, July 22nd with a post from the Environment category: Simplify. I hope you’ll join me!
