Going to school at age 48


Yes, I’m scared. But, I look at it this way. My kids are 14 and 15 and are able to wipe their own buts and basically eat when they feel hungry lol, so I feel it’s time to do something for myself that is going to hmmm how do I put this…. make me feel whole. Huh? Don’t people usually look for a partner to make them feel “whole?” Lol true and having a companion does help in that department but this is different.

Before I go off on a tangent, my point to this post is my age, 48, I’m going back to school. I hate saying I all the time. I don’t want to make this about me. My posts are intended to talk to people out there who think they can’t in life. I know that there are millions of people out there who think it’s too late for them to do something like this. Then there are others that say bs I can.  I’m standing in the middle but I just fell off the fence and I’m going for it. I am also doing it because this is exactly what my older sister did. At the age of I believe 52 she completed her Bachelors. Nothing and no one stopped her. She is a domestic violence advocate as well as a published author. At times she struggled mentally, financially, and yes physically(medical issues) but she did it and nothing stopped her.

Over the past 2 weeks I also decided that I am not going for my teaching certification. I am going for Masters in Social Work. MSW. That took a lot for me to say. Whew… so nervous but freakin excited. There are so many reasons why I switched to this but the main reason is I love helping people figure out life. Plain and simple.

There is so much more to this but I have to get going so I’m going to stop here for now. But ya’ll out there reading this, have an amazing day.

Remember there is nothing that you can’t do in life. Nothing. You are the only one stopping you from achieving your goals and following your dreams.

Yes, it’s scary and hard at times but you can do it.

Get out of your comfort zone and change your life. Start now.

Be amazing


BUT THE BEST.  First and foremost, never doubt yourself in any situation. Don’t ever let anyone make you feel you are incapable, lesser, or anything less then the best. You are the best.

If they want to challenge you, take it on. Challenge them back. Stand up for your beliefs and have confidence in yourself.

I’d say if you are reading this post, you already have reservations about any thoughts you might be having or even a decision and conviction you are hesitant about standing up for. Don’t change your mind. Stand your ground.

Believe  and take pride in yourself. Only you have the power to stand up for you. Be your own advocate.

You are amazing, worthy, capable, and the best there is. Don’t stop now. Keep going and follow through on your dreams and goals. I know you can do it and so do you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

No guilt, be happy


I was just writing a comment in a private group on FB. It’s a whole bunch of women talking about dating dilemmas, strategies, the good, the bad, and the ugly lol.

I think I’ve been through every dating scenario possible and I am finally, at age 48, beginning to figure it out. Well, hopefully lol.

I came to the conclusion that you have to throw yourself out there and try everything. Start by asking yourself, what is it that you are looking for? Another few things you have to think about are, is the timing right to get back into the dating scene? Do you still think about your ex? Lastly, and most importantly, are you happy with yourself at this present moment?

I found that unless I have myself together and that the rest of my life was fine tuned, I couldn’t date. Are you happy in your current state of life? That is so important. If something is off-key, then how could you possible date or go into a relationship with an open mind?

Right now I have never been happier with my current dating situation. If it works for you, go for it.

Have a great Saturday everyone!

 

My Pinterest bedroom


Yup. I finally followed through on some design ideas I saw on Pinterest. ”This is one half of my bedroom and I must say I’m quite impressed with myself. No I’m not a narcissist lol.

Comforter set: Homegoods, $60 bucks

Headboard: Wayfair, $107 bucks

Wall prints(made from fabric: Goodwill $4 bucks for ALL!

Curtains: $7 a panel, Boscovs.

I’m sooo happy!!!

I did it over the course of 3 paychecks but I still made it happen and so can you.

My theory is that you can’t deplete yourself doing it or it’s no fun. There are so many ways to be smart about decorating.

Good luck!!!
