Do you still lament the unfairness of getting old? Well, I have some enchanting news. This radiant age, more than any other time in our lives, enables us to set fresh expectations, chase new dreams and find new purpose.
I entered my 40s with some serious struggles and confusion on what direction my life should be going. Then, life came into focus. How? For starters, I quit drinking alcohol. This led to a healthier lifestyle, and a recognition that I can still chase dreams and fulfill new potential in the second half of my life. Some of it is hard work but a lot of it is fun.
This blog is a way to share what I’m learning through personal experience and research on waking up to the beauty of life at any age.
Today marks two years since I quit drinking alcohol. Not a sip in two years. Wow! Considering it once required tremendous effort to go a week without wine, this is a spectacular feat. Ironically, I’m not sure how to mark this anniversary since my mind still automatically falls back to champagne as the way to celebrate a momentous occasion! And, yet, I definitely have no intention of returning to alcohol any time soon
