Inspiration -why this blog

Loving Life at 50+

The website is now live and Ive got my first subscribers, welcome.

At our age, I want us to do more of what we want to do, and much less of what we feel we ought to do. This website is something Ive created with underlying joy. Ive learnt a lot about creating websites, working with my designer to set up sub sites to tie in with books and other ideas. But this time this is something I am going to love to focus on.
I want to inspire you, and perhaps my approach will help you. I had this vision, used my skills, and bought in the skills I dont have and here it is. And I made it happen fast. Why hang about when you have a vision?
Ill be writing under 4 main areas

I could have more sections, but think it will be easier for you, and me to keep to these themes. Inspiration will be around topics to make you think, including learning more about ourselves and how we can grow and develop.

I would take more chances. I would take more trips. I would climb more mountains, swim more rivers, watch more sunsets. I would eat more ice cream and less beans. I would have more actual troubles and fewer imaginary ones.

Facing your fears what doing the Sydney Bridge climb taught me about facing fear

We all have fears to face – heights, spiders, deciding that we can’t go for the promotion due to far of possible success. These fears can hold us back, and we need to look for ways to address them.

On December 30th, 2016, I did the bridge climb at Sydney, a big decision for someone scared of heights, but I knew if I didn’t do it I would be full of regret (I’m unlikely to go to Sydney again).
