Every next level of your life will demand a different version of you. I am starting a new chapter yet again, as our lives are made of pages, chapters, and books. I just turned 50 and it has been the best birthday ever. At this age I feel freedom and lightness. To be honest, I just don’t care anymore and that is freeing. This new version of me is developing; I’m not sure how it’s going to manifest as time goes on, but I do know I am willing to show up fully each day and decide who I want to be. I intend to live with compassion and gratitude. I take time each day to meditate and do things that make me happy. Spending time with friends who are priceless, and living out loud some days, and also living quietly on other days. My daughter is away at college, so I am cultivating a new life and to be honest it scares me. I trust everything is unfolding just as it should be, the loss, the rebirth, the new beginnings, and the endings. Such is life……….
