OK, so I've gone up a couple of dress sizes and menopause has come to visit but so what?

 I am having the time of my life!  I never imagined that 50 years old could feel this good.  After all, when I was a little girl the age of 50 seemed ancient and everyone I knew who was around that age acted like they had no more spunk left and was just waiting for the day when they could retire.


Well, no retirement for me anytime soon.  Actually I don’t have a regular 9 to 5 to retire from but I consider that a blessing.  I am not stressed out in a job where I’m underpaid and overworked and having to answer to someone young enough to be one of my children.  I am doing what I love---writing and spreading positive messages about aging gracefully.  “Enjoy the Journey” is my new attitude! 


I’m having such a good time I decided to go on tour and spread the good news about growing older.  It’s called the “I’m still Hot…it just comes in Flashes now! summer book tour and I am so encouraged by the women I meet who are excited about their own journeys.  As a matter of fact, I’m going to be hosting Fabulously 40 and Beyond Girlfriend Pajama Parties and I may be coming to a city near you so GET READY!


OK, so I’ve gone up a couple of dress sizes and I have a little extra jiggle when I walk but I’m doing it with dignity and style and not trying to squeeze into a size 2 or 4 or 6 for that matter.  Yes, menopause and its host of annoying symptoms have come knocking at my door, but you know what I say to that?  WHATEVER!


My love life couldn’t be better.  I have a wonderful NEW husband who makes me hotter than a hot flash!  We just celebrated our one year anniversary and I look forward to many more years of making him as happy as he makes me.  He truly is the wind beneath my wings---not like my first husband who blew a lot of hot air!


So ladies, my advice to you is to take every negative in your life and find a positive.  Sure, you’ll have days when you don’t want to get out of bed and face the world---try facing God instead---and have Him give you that nudge you need. 


One more thing:  Keep on PUSH—ing (Pray Until Something Happens!)


I invite you to read why I'm so deliriously happy in my book Whatever! A Baby Boomer's Journey Into Middle Age.

Dear Beverely,
I like your style! Especially the PUSH idea. You have areat sense of humor and you have a real special talent. I like the ASAP saying as well. If you have not heard it, please allow me to present it to you:
Have you ever wondered about the abbreviation A.S.A.P.? Generally we think of it in terms of even more hurry and stress in our lives. Maybe if we think of this abbreviation in a different manner, we will
begin to find a new way to deal with those rough days along the way...

So when.......
There's work to do, deadlines to meet;
You've got no time to spare,
But as you hurry and scurry-

In the midst of family chaos,
"Quality time" is rare.
Do your best; let God do the rest-

It may seem like your worries
Are more than you can bear.
Slow down and take a breather-

God knows how stressful life is;
He wants to ease our cares,
And He'll respond to all your needs

Yours In Christ,

John Michael

Fifties are much better than I knew could be possible when I was 20, 30, or 40! You go, girl! (and me too!) Eileen

You took 10 years off your life with a new husband and an active sex life (smile). 50's are such a wonderful time in your life. Don't let anyone make you think that you are old. Turning 60 here myself and realize that age is just a number and you are truly as old as you allow yourself to feel. Stay happy, stay active.

Sounds wonderful, says she who is pushing over into the later 40s. Though I cannot boast of the love life you have, I take heart with your motto, hmmmm good advice indeed.
Stay happy, grace n peace be with you
