Create Your Second Life The Way You Want

September 2, 2009

I have been doing some reading about Mid-life Crisis and what they really are. I’m finding the information fascinating to say the least. I am a woman who is in her mid-life…now… and I have to say that I’m having a ball so far. No…Really…I am!

So here’s my 2 cents on creating the second life the way you want.

Now that I’m in my Mid-life I (I’m)…
1. Not concerned about what the “They’s” say, as in what will THEY think
2. Dress the way that I want to…not because a fashion magazine told me to do so
3. Believe in myself more
4. Believe in my skills and talents
5. Fully believe that I DO have all my answers within me
6. Choose not to wear high heels
7. Say what I really think more
8. Speak from the heart more often
9. Believe I can make a difference in the world
10. Choose friends who add to my life
11. Drop acquaintances that DRAG me down
12. Creating a wider circle of unique friends of various ages
13. Re-Designing how I spend my time and energy
14. Organizing my life…starting with WHO I REALLY AM
15. Being Authentic
16. Letting go of old and outdated labels that no longer fit

What life do you want?

Have you started your Re-Design life yet?

Until next time… Make each day count!

Be Real,

24 All Things Summer List

July 5, 2009

Summer is here! I really enjoy the summer months and being closer to nature. Just looking at the green that is all round makes me feel calmer and happier.
Naturally, this got me thinking.

So….here’s my 2 cents on all things summer

1. Waking up to the morning sunrise
2. Listening to the birds chip outside
3. Watching my cats chatter at the birds outside
4. Walking around the house barefoot
5. Walking on the grass barefoot
6. Engaging in a yoga practice outside, on the grass, on the mat and in the morning sun
7. Listening to some nice music in the evening
8. Puttering around in the garden
9. Puttering around the house while others are still sleeping
10. Having a nap outside in the sun & shade
11. Bike riding
12. Running through a sprinkler (doesn’t even have to be your own)
13. Flying a kite
14. Going on a trail hike
15. Swinging high on a swing (A must… to bring out the kid in all of us)
16. Eating cotton candy
17. Wearing flip-flops
18. The smell of sunscreen (Coconut scented IS the best)
19. Playing a late night game outside on the patio with family
20. The smell of a camp fire
21. The sounds of fans in the house
22. The joy of a slower pace the city seems to adopt during summer
23. Reading, journaling, laptopping, writing and dreaming
24. Just hanging out in your own back yard with absolutely no plans
