The 2nd half

Gal pals are everything!

Peri, meno and most importantly post menopause gives me much food for thought. More years behind me than in front. The big question is. Am I living the life I want? Grateful to say yes, however a Hermès Birkin wouldn’t go a miss!!

“None of us gets out alive” don’t worry I’m in a hurry to pack more in. Plus I want to continue to be fit, fifty something and feel fantastic. Here’s how:

  • stay active. Take the stairs. Use the loo that’s farther away
  • find more sports I enjoy
  • stay interested, keeps us interesting (according to my dad)
  • eating and drinking healthy most of the time. Drink more water than wine!
  • stay strong with weight bearing exercises
  • keep learning, food for my brain
  • get out in nature. A breath of fresh air does us all good
  • more fun, more laughs, keep your sense of humour

I’ve mentioned my mum’s menopausal issues during this time of her life which impacted my parents relationship. Much of the time we can’t be bothered to take action until the “thing” effects our day to day life. Is there an elephant in your room?

It’s not about just looking younger, and that’s totally ok. If a few nips, tucks, Botox gives you a lift (pardon the pun) I’m all for it. My emphasis is on ensuring I’m thriving through this time. Feeling strong and confident. Do what makes you feel fabulous.

“Live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.” Henry David Thoreau – poet and philosopher

I want to be a participant in the room. Don’t you?

    Poets words are so true there is no other land, there is no other life.
