Here it is…

Soul of a Woman

I begin this blog with full transparency.
Transitioning to my 50s has not been easy emotionally, physically or mentally. Someone forgot to tell us that we face the rest of our lives as the end of our lives. We enter a new decade knowing we are getting closer to our last decades. With that in mind, I began a heart journey. Am I the happiest, healthiest and most prosperous? If not, how do I get there without feeling like I’m running out of time?

Hence, this blog.

I have lived a very full and colorful life and I know that entering this phase of my life should not be any different. But after taking off my dancing shoes, fancy clothes celebrating this monumental birth age, things began to get quiet and still. What happened to the fanfare, the congratulation- “you are going to live your best days yet?…

Dead Silence.

So this will be my attempt to navigate the latter years of my life with anyone who cares to read and indulge me.

But first, I have to let you know how I got here.
Welcome to S.O.W.E

Til’ Tuesday…

    There is nothing more honorable than a woman willing to bare her truths. We go through life often hiding who we were or even who we are now, but it’s incredibly encouraging & a much needed necessity to others that we make known our journeys, our struggles, & our triumphs! Thank you for this! Looking forward to next Tuesday & the Tuesdays to follow….
