Welcome to Fiftiness!
Welcome to the new normal of what it means to be fit and fearless over the age of fifty! Fiftiness, /fiftēnəs/ noun, the quality of women living a fearless life after fifty; a stage delineated by breaking the rules and finding your inner warrior in and out of the gym; a time of life for defining your expertise, wearing your wrinkles as badges, laughing in the face of reading glasses and chin hairs. i.e. She wore her fiftiness like a bolt of lightening illuminating a dark room with a brightness so intoxicating no one could look away. For me, creating a website for women over fifty has been a fearless act. I've been on hiatus over the last few months, perhaps letting my fears get the best of me. It's a theme I'd like to explore more. I invite all of my readers/writers to join in the conversation. That's what Fiftiness is all about, shared stories of women just like us living a fearless life, or doing our best to get darn close! There is strength and inspiration in shared stories. So join us - be fearless!
December is for Planning
On the first night of Chanukah, I was sent photos of latkes from friends. Absent from many of the pictures were the little kids that had once filled the holidays with importance and insane details. It made me a bit sad to remember tiny hands spinning dreidels and ripping through gift paper. For many of us, our little kids are now grown, away at college, pursuing careers in different cities. It can make the month of December, no matter what holiday you celebrate, so filled with nostalgia that it is easy to slow down and get lost in memory. I say, take charge of that narrative! Wind down through December by celebrating all that you have done and accomplished in 2018. Feel the tingling sensation of a new year brimming with opportunity. Let December be a month of inspiration & planning!
