The oldest picture on my phone is about nine years old, for #10yearschallengephoto When I look thoroughly I'm quite shocked. I think I have been looking like myself at 25 until my 45th and since then I am crumbling. 😳Btw I'm no longer able to estimate ages - I think everyone younger than 35 is looking like a teenager nowadays.. or are all teenagers looking over 30..? #midlife #menopause

I’m not listening to enough Leonard Cohen. I’m not reading enough Bukowski. I’m not flipping through enough Neruda. I’m not sipping enough wine. I’m not touching enough skin. But I am filled up with sin. #writingprompts #authorsofig #writerscommunity #writersofig #midlife #midlifestyle #leonardcohen #charlesbukowski #pabloneruda #andshelaughs
The Grand Palladium, an all-inclusive resort offers something for everyone including beaches, gym and spa, multiple restaurants, shows, adult and family pools, shopping, tennis and more.  Because they offer so much for all it seems like an ideal spot for a multigenerational vacation.  When my mother was alive she would organize our vacation that spanned 4 generations. Have you ever taken a multigenerational vacation? - - - -  #genxplorers #genxtravel #midlife #killingit  #keepitmovin #adventureculture #bestvacations #travelnow #forbestravelguide  #lifeisshort #getoutthere #meettheworld #travelmore #exploreyourworld #travel_captures #soultravelers #wanderout #travelforlife #adventurelife #liveyouradventure #adventureanywhere #travelnow  #traveladdiction #travelpassion #travelmemories #emptynesters #allineed  #honoringyourfreedom  #costamujeres  @travelbloggeres @passionpassport @condenasttraveller  @femmetravel@travelgirlscollective @visitmexico  @travelinladies  @thetravelwomen@travellikeagirl @sidewalkerdaily  @damestravel@womenwhoexplore @girlsthatwander @femaletravelbloggers@solofemaletravel@solowomentravel @solo_traveling @sidewalkerdaily@thetraveltag

Kindness Challenge: Bake someone treats for someone you love.🍪 😋
I turned 50 that morning. . You were gone from the bed when I awakened. Collisions of midlife thoughts and memories paralyzed me in the thick humidity under the hum of the whirling fan spinning above my head. I lay there all alone and motionless, a face-up casualty, wrapped tightly in a cool white sheet. . I begrudgingly raised myself up and stood before the teak hotel mirror tracing the deep lines in what I remembered had been a boy’s face. Beyond my reflection I saw the patches of golden light illuminating the final random memories of a well-intended life. The bed’s sheer, veiled dressing unable to hide the sterility left behind by the absence of our intimacy, the untouched plate of bright fruit the sole sign of life. . The moist, tropical air settled upon my skin like a slippery foreboding. . In the procession and pageantry celebrating a half-century of my life, did you come to say goodbye? . The reflection of a nearly-invisible phantom met me at the tall glass as I approached the deceptively thin windows separating us. Through my darker, depthless silhouette I could clearly gaze down upon you on the other side, outside of me in the warm sunlight, alone with your broken dreams. . That night our candlelit eyes met honestly for the last time as we released celebratory flying lanterns, our smiles glowed with soft light against the dark tropical landscape. A final connection over what was, and a knowing of what was to be, once brilliant beacons extinguished by the inevitable emptiness of the night sky. . . . #areflectivelens #travel #traveller #nomad #nomadic #voyage #voyager #modernnomadic #photojournal #essay #storyteller #traveldiary #diary #journal #globetrotter #seetheworld #exploration #selfexploration #travelisgoodforthesoul #midlife #middleaged
I just realized when people in their 20s are talking about old people, they’re really talking about US!!!!!!!! #midlife #thisis50 #50andfabulous #midlifemom #emptynest #gigi #pawpaw #livingmybestlife #fountainofyouth #agingbackwards
I did a thing! Ladies, read more below, click the link above to join us. . We women pack our schedules to meet the needs of our partners, children, careers. We devote more time and energy into meeting others’ needs over our own. We may know that something needs to change but are unsure where to start. That’s what happened to me. I was so busy trying to accomplish, be perfect, and control everything (and everyone!), that I lost touch with who I was and what I wanted... I lost touch with my heart center. I felt disconnected, unhappy and alone. . One of the biggest life lessons that I’ve had to learn is that of guilt-free self-love. Every circumstance and every relationship in my life presented opportunities for me to see all the ways I wasn’t loving myself. Old stories about myself, my worth and my lovability created fear, doubt and worry that has impacted my life choices and actions. To create a Healthy Self, I’ve had to “Heal Thy Self.” I created space for quality time with ME and went deep into the work of self-inquiry, self-discovery, and self-awareness. I’ve been learning how to practice self-compassion, self-forgiveness, and self-nurturing. . Ladies, this is the work of our life. It can be challenging to do it alone, which is why I started this FREE 30-day Facebook group. This group will provide information and inspire insights through guided self-inquiry and self-reflection. This group is for women who want to: • Rediscover who they are • Learn how to *really* love and take better care of themselves • Explore what lies buried in their heart – the dreams, desires, and callings that are waiting, and the fears, stories, and doubts that are blocking us from pursuing them • Find clarity about what’s next in life • Increase presence and connection in relationships, including with themselves. . #selfnurturing #selfhealing #introspection #innerguidance #wholeness #emotionalwellbeing #selfcompassion #selfkindness #selfawareness #wellbeing

Ever have one of those really proud moments?  This is my eldest daughter @zoelynnwinston . She’s been working her tail off to eat healthy and exercise all while being a mom of two young kids and working full-time. -> She’s exercising at home -> She’s planning and prepping her meals. -> She’s inspiring me daily!  If she can do this, so can you!

Dressing for comfort and not being a slave to trendiness is one of my favorite things about getting older! Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for dressing up, but no longer will I wear things that are uncomfortable or fit poorly. In fact, I think the holy grail of fashion is a look that’s comfortable, classic, versatile, fits well, and is well-made. When I found this tunic dress, I knew I’d hit the style jackpot! I love that it’s a classic piece that I can wear with my beloved @Spanx faux-leather leggings. I styled it with a pair of fun (and aging-foot-friendly) @SamEdelman leopard print ballet flats. (Y’all, I SO appreciate the cushy insoles he puts in all of his shoes!) You’ll see me style this tunic with bare legs and my favorite booties—or even flip flops—as the weather turns warmer. I think the pretty gold hardware dresses it up a little, and the sleeve detailing shows it’s a quality piece. (Oh, and did you notice the pockets?!!!) #welovedresseswithpockets #ohyeswedo 🙂  Scroll through and the. screenshot this pic to get shoppable product details with the LIKEtoKNOW.it app and be sure to follow Empty Nest Blessed in the app! @liketoknow.it http://liketk.it/2zndW #liketkit #ltkstyletip #ltkshoecrush #emptynestblessed 📸by @meganmweaver . . . . #fashionover50 #styleover50 #over50 #over50fashion #over50style #emptynest #emptynester #emptynesters #agelessstyle #fabover50  #chicover50 #fashionatanyage #styleatanyage #50plusandfabulous #over50model  #fierce50 #midlife #midlifestyle #midlifefashion  #modestfashion #everydaystyle #agelessstyle #fashionover40

Laugh away your stress!  Laughter really is the best medicine. A good dose of laughter can cut through the deepest feelings of stress and anxiety.  Enjoying funny jokes or silly moments can help you feel more relaxed and less tense. This puts less pressure on your body's systems and can even promote a healing response within your body.  A healthy sense of humor acts as an emotional distraction and creates a fresh perspective on your circumstance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have a favorite comedy/movie? Share in the comments!
You would never know it now but this morning I helped my husband shovel 4 inches of snow and I few hours later I shoveled 2 more inches for an hour of easy cardio.

“Midpoints, as we’re seeing, can have a dual effect. In some cases, they dissipate our motivation; in other cases, they activate it. Sometimes they elicit an “oh, no” and we retreat; other times they trigger an “uh-oh” and we advance. Under certain conditions, they bring the slump; under others, they deliver the spark.” —Daniel Pink, When . . I took a little social media hiatus last week, and during that time I read up on midpoints in When. I love this excerpt from the book because I’m reminded that I have two choices at this stage in my life. Guess which choice I’m making? . . . #middleagedmomswhocan #midlife #danielhpink #when #midlife #choices #slumporspark #midlifewomen #middleage

Several years ago I sat under some teaching through counseling that completely changed my life. This scripture was key. Poor in spirit means we are utterly helpless. We have nothing to offer, our poverty renders us powerless. This is where we find God. In our brokenness, in our helplessness, He steps in and offers LIFE! All we have to is accept it through the provision Christ made on the cross.  As I listened to this song I was reminded of this teaching. In the moment this song came forth, the people in the situation were "poor in spirit" all they could do was worship and magnify the Lord in the presence of their enemy, fear and death. We raise a Hallelujah. We magnify the great all powerful God and in that moment we find victory. Sometimes we find it in healing of body, but greater still we ALWAYS find it in His strength made perfect in our weakness! His presence, His peace, His very present help, THIS is Victory!  https://youtu.be/awkO61T6i0k

My business projects were undone last evening, however self-care is my #1 priority project. So I decided to run a hot bath, have a glass of wine and spend quality time with my honey. Tomorrow would be another day and the business that I love would and did resume. Recharge your gadgets. Most importantly, make time to recharge YOU.  #selfcare #worklifebalance  #timemanagement #livelifeoutloud  #datenight #livingmybestlife #lifeafter50 #60andsensational #disruptaging #relax #sleep #emptynest #emptynestmom #findmypurpose clarity #findmyself #midlife #allmomsmatter #momfabulous #motherhoodish #meditation #kidsallgrown #thisismylife #spatime #getmylife #momboss #girlsgone50 #ageaintnothingbutanumber #lifebeyond50 #coupling
“As life moves we need to move with it, not against it. Transition happens whether we’re ready or not. Of course it’s difficult to let go, to stretch, to accommodate and to be in between here and there yet - discomfort is inevitable whether you remain in a stagnant story that no longer serves or you decide to choose growth. So choose growth.” - Victoria Erickson 🌱 . . Okay, okay, I’m joining in on the #10yearchallenge. I may have actually been 34 in the first photo, depending on when in the year it was taken. A full time #homeschoolmom of four kids 10 and under. The flattering camera angle is courtesy of my oldest. 😂 And y’all, that sweet little hand holding on to me is making my heart melt a little. That’s my youngest, who was born in 2009. ♥️ In some ways I’m still the same person I was then, in many ways I’m not at all. But I wouldn’t trade it. 💙 The second picture is from last week...and I have to say...43 isn’t so bad either! 💙♥️💙 . . #beagoddess #strongwoman #10yearschallenge #progressnotperfection #crazysexyyoga #yogaeverydamnday #yogamom #yogaover40 #yogajourney #yogalife #fitover40 #fitmom #perfectlyimperfect #mypractice #selftaughtyogi #thisis43 #divinefeminine  #empoweredwomen #feminineenergy #transformationtuesday #agechallenge #throwbackthursday #fabulousforties #midlife #youngatheart #transformation #transition #growth
So very true! I laughed when I read this, because all those great memories came flooding back. I'm going to keep on making memories from bad ideas with best friends. Why not, life's too short (the bad ideas may just be a little more subdued though 😉).

"We don't stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing" - George Bernard Shaw⠀ 🎾⠀ I have fun and stay close with my kids even though we are far apart and I really enjoyed "playing" with my kids in this video.⠀(watch the whole video on http://bit.ly/playingforlongevity or click on the link in bio) 🎾⠀ Somewhere between childhood and adulthood we stopped playing. Work, stress, family commitments and now screen time seem to replace the enjoyment of play.⠀ 🎾⠀ As we get older we sometimes lose our capacity to imagine, be creative and problem solve, but if we play a little more, we can re-ignite some of this lost magic. Not only may this contribute to our emotional well-being, but our healthspan can benefit too.⠀ 🎾⠀ When we are having fun endorphins (happy hormones) and released and stress hormone corisol lowers. This  may have a powerful anti-inflammatory effect on the body and even boost the immune system.⠀ 🎾⠀ My kids are grown now and we no longer play dolls and cars, but we still have fun, laugh and play in other ways. Today I had fun making this silly family video with my son @markianb⠀ 🎾⠀ What have you played today? Comment below 👇🏼 and tag your "playmate". You may just live a little longer because of it.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #play #family #aging #longevity #parents #agedoesntmatter #ageless #ageing #ageisjustanumber #aginggracefully #olderandwiser #parenting #midlife #midlifewomen #over40blogger #over50blogger
