Have Women Really Given Up On Their Dreams?

I heard on the radio that a recent study showed that women, in general, have given up on their dreams. That was it. Then, they went back to playing the next song. Just like that.

Immediately, I felt very distressed, hearing this. Then, I felt a little offended and maybe a tad outraged at the notion that women could be throwing in the towel after achieving so much over the last 50 to 100 years.

Ultimately, I felt a bit agitated with the radio personality (which happened to have been a woman) due to the fact that there wasn’t enough info given. I mean, who are these women? I know it’s a generalization, but still, can we have an age group, perhaps? Also, what dreams are we talking about here: relationship, career, personal goals??? The more I thought about it, the more angry I felt at HER! You can’t just drop a bomb like that, without some back up stats. I mean, come on, woman! Do your job…throw us a bone…give some hope, a ray of sunshine to go with that dismal revelation. No wonder we’re giving up on our dreams! ha ha

Perhaps I’m over reacting? I’m just annoyed at how she could make a statement like that with no explanation. No details. Not even a mention with who actually conducted the study.

I heard this yesterday morning, it’s really stuck with me for some reason.
It has me wondering about my own dreams and the ones I may have given up on.

After doing a little research, I found that there actually was some work put into these results. The first ever Global Dreams Index Survey was conducted and found that half of the world’s female population feel that dreams are silly, unrealistic and not what grown ups do. Why??? Continue reading

Being Ok With Being 50

For me, turning 30 was much more traumatic than turning 50.  There’s truth to the saying, “with age comes wisdom”.  Don’t you feel so much “smarter” at 50?  I know I do and wouldn’t go back for anything!  Turning 50 doesn’t mean your life is over, or soon to be.  With new research in medicine and more social awareness on how to live healthier, people are living longer than they did back in the mid 20th century.  So, 50 really is the new 30.
