Life After 40

Yes, there IS Life After 40. I mean really living, ENJOYING your life.

This is Act II of my life. Act I dealt with my upbringing, experiences as a young person, internal and emotional struggles and parenting. It also dealt with my attachment to the systems of religion and government authority in my life which i wholly bought into both and allowed to defined my life. But ACT II, which started around 2014 or so, before my daughter entered 7th grade middle school, Began when I decided to take my life back and start to Live for myself. I started to work on my bucket list. This list was created initially for after I was done being a parent, but as my daughter got older, I was moved to begin working the list since she needed me a LEETLE less. First item on the agenda? You’ll never guess…I wanted to be in a FLASH MOB. That’s right! A flash mob baby!!!! So I did. I started asking around and one of my coworker’s daughters actually was in one and gave me the name of the organization. IT WAS A BLAST!!! So much fun, so inspiring and I felt really proud of myself for finally doing something that I Loved other than “mommy” things. I couldn’t walk the next day – but it was bliss. That set me on this path, and its been slow and spotty, but there nonetheless. The path of Defining, Carving out the Pleasant side of life, following a passion, a dream, now a goal and Reality. This was the start for me as an adult Having Fun. That is possible, even for a tight assed, perfectionist, “nerdy”, OCD-having, hover parent such as myself.

Life is made to be Enjoyed, to follow our desires, the things that interest us and to have fun!!! Not just worry about how to make a living and how to pay bills. I AM still on this path and learning as I Go. I desire anyone who has not already begun, to Begin to Embrace life, Embrace Loving Yourself and to Have Fun in the Process.

Life is not over after 40, its just beginning…

Well. (Sigh). I am a writer. I have always been a writer because I’ve always loved writing. And yet, I just realized a few days ago that I am a “writer”. What does this mean? It means I have a Need to write, a Calling to write, it completes me. Simple, right? Why am I just now realizing this? I always keep my written thoughts to myself, for the most part, only really sharing on occasion. I don’t really like speaking out to much, although when I do I am absolutely certain in my resolve. I’m also a researcher, which is why I am certain in my resolve. I am writing this quite frankly, because of a feeling. A feeling that I need to do this. Before I started writing this, I titled this “healing”. Interesting because I had no idea what it would be about, but it is about me doing something that I love and healing myself through the process. So, I want to encourage anyone who reads this, to do exactly what you love and you will be healed. Healed from the stress of repressing something that is dying to get out. Healed from society’s view that plugging into the matrix and working to make others wealthy is the way to go. Healed from the mental slavery that appreciates the pennies our government throws at us when this is a world of abundance. Healed by the ability to break free and do exactly what you want to do. Don’t care about the details, not anymore. My path has led me to this place, at this time, right now, to begin doing what I love and I will follow that path as I always do. I always say, listen to your body, and it will tell you what it needs. Wishing every human and animal on planet Earth heartfelt LOVE and peace of mind. Cherokee
