Q & A

So, now that you‘re here, the marvelous middle age - what do you want?  Security, money, power, freedom?  What’s on the top of your priority list?

I turned 50 this year and for the first time really came to terms with being “older.”  I feel good...finally.  I’m changing my life, developing my own business, working on attaining freedom on all levels.

Do you feel good about who and where you are?

    • What do I want? I want to keep doing what I love.

      I want to enjoy every waking minute of the day.

      I want to smile no matter what I am doing.

      I want to help my kids focus on achieving what they truly want to do, and not what their father has always pushed them to do.

      I want to dress up everyday.

      I want to wear heels when I go out to dinners, coffee, and even the grocery store because it makes me feel like I am on top of the world.

      I want to continue being me.

    • At 47, I want my life back. I want to be selfish. I want someone who shares my interests. I want to be happy and healthy. And I want more grandchildren :o)

    • I have a 3 year old stepgrandchild. It’s a lot of fun. Today we went to our art class then I took her to lunch. She started acting up a little and I gave her a big hug - and took her home to her mother.

      At 47 I want to stop feeling so obligated all the time. I wrap my world and plan my schedule around the schedules of others. I’m usually the one who is inconvenienced. I want to have a role reversal.

      I want the phrase “I understand how you feel but I’m sticking with my decision” to be a bigger part of my vocabulary.

    • I’m may not be exactly where I want to be at this point in my life but everyday I try to remember that I am exactly where I need to be at this moment in time because life is a process.
      I look at the next two years as training cause in two years I’ll be fifty and I’m gonna hit the ground running when I get there!
      I think i like what Gillianz said...I am working to attain freedom on all levels!

    • I feel good about who I am, but not where I am. There are many things going on that I have no control of. The economy and deadbeat tenants have put me (and my husband) in a financial spiral. As soon as I get the financial fires put out I want to institute a ‘plan’ to not get stuck here again. My husband NEEDS to change the way he thinks and lives. He’s no longer a rich executive...those days are long past. He needs to not live beyond his means. I’ve made it clear that I will no longer live the way he wants to live. I NEED financial freedom and independence and I’m working on it now.
