Stepping Into Fifty

 50 and Counting

What does stepping into fifty look like? As I journey through my first  year of my fiftieth decade I’m beginning to ask a lot of questions. I feel as if I am on the cusp of puberty uncertain of the dramatic changes that I know are in store for me. I’ve heard stories. I’ve read and I’ve imagined and now I’m about to travel into my fifties.

It’s funny how we all have self images burned into our psyche. The not real and the real collide in my brain like a kaleidoscope shifting and splintering until I’m not quite sure who I am anymore. And I think it’s important to know.

I can tick the easy things off; 50, full-time job that is uncertain, divorced for longer than I was married, a mother of two grown children and a grandmother of an adorable seven-year old little girl. These are the easy things. For years I’ve lived on autopilot. It’s hard to go deeper than that, but it’s time to take a peek at what’s under the hood.

Welcome to my world…a place to explore life, love and all the in-between. It’s a little about nothing and a lot about possibilities. I’m a woman stepping into Fifty, single and living in the Last Frontier, scratch that, Houston, I live in Houston now. I moved, changed jobs and turned fifty in the space of a few months.

Sometimes its amazing to think that I will begin my fifties in Texas, but life is an adventure and you never know where it will take you. Speaking of which, I can’t wait to share a bit of this and a bit of that. I would love to say this blog focuses on a certain genre but I’m too scattered to keep on topic. So, my very dear and new friends,  expect the unexpected because that’s life.

Love, April
