Hello and welcome! My name is Barb. I have been on a health and wellness journey for some time, now. Some of the the road has been a little rocky, either because of lack of dedication or due to distraction. Every time I’ve strayed from the wellness path for any given time frame or reason, and then return, I realized just how unhealthy I was feeling during that period away from it. Recently, I’ve decided to dedicate my life to staying on that path, learning all I can along the way. My goal is to learn and share WITH you as I go…as WE go.
NOW, A LITTLE MORE ABOUT MYSELF AND WHAT WE’RE DOING HERE…
Since turning 50, I started noticing changes taking place physically, physiologically, psychologically and even spiritually. Most of the time I didn’t feel comfortable with sharing these things with anyone for fear that they would think I was an alien or that I’ve completely lost it. Like many of you, I’m sure, I have a mother from a generation where things of this nature weren’t discussed. I never got the “birds and the bees” talk, no menstrual cycle preparation, and definitely no child bearing conversation. So, going to mom was out. I felt totally alone on this journey. One night while out with my group of girlfriends, all ranging in age from late forties to mid fifties, somebody brought up menopause and hot flashes. This got us all chiming in on our own individual issues we were facing at that moment. I remember the feeling of relief knowing I wasn’t alone after all. That was about 5 years ago… I am currently 54, about to turn 55. And, I’m ok with that. 🙂
I realize how lucky I am to have this group of girlfriends, but I also realize that not everyone is so lucky. Right? My goal, here, is to offer this same safe zone where we can all share issues, concerns, and even achievements with one another. All, while learning how to take care of ourselves from the inside out, and completely. My wish is that you all discover how good you can really feel and the clarity you’ll discover, when you take on a holistic approach to your own health and wellness.
Together, we will be sharing and learning about everything being women over 50. If, at any time, you have a question or a topic that hasn’t been discussed, yet, let me know. I want to be sure to include everyone, so that your specific issues are being addressed. Please know that I am not a doctor, or even a specialist. I am simply acting as a guide and sort of an all-in-one source to living happier & healthier lives, based on my own experiences and from what we discover, here, together.
Remember, you are stronger than you think. You are beautiful. You matter.
