429 Days....

Do you know what I figured out today? It is exactly 429 Days.....until I'm 50 years old.

That is a milestone....50! That 1/2 of 100.

Do you know what I allowed myself to consider today...well...actually come to accept?

50 is not to old to reach goals, to stretch yourself, to push yourself, to grow and change.

I've been doing a lot of visualizations lately....actually picturing myself doing new things and starting back to old things that I used to love. New things like going to college - talk about scary....at least to me - Old things like actually taking my butt to the gym in my community tonight...and got on the elliptical. I'm visualizing myself doing a completely different job...one that I want and hope to enjoy.

It's empowering. It's enlightening. It's exciting and I'm taking little, tiny baby steps...into the unknown.

Recently...my good friend, Schnauz, shared a couple of incredible websites with the cell. Thank you Schnauz.

One site is Christine Kane - Her common sense approach to the daily life struggles I seem to encounter - along with humor - really help me push through the doubting voices in my head.

The second site is Brave Girls Club - and the daily emails that Melody Ross and her sister KathyWilkins are so incredibly encouraging, uplifting, and seem to speak right to my heart - that I decided to sign up for the Brave Girls Camp they sponsor several times a year. It's held in Idaho and it's 5 days of discovering what brave is to me and incorporating something that is such a part of the me - scrapbooking and paper crafts. My friend, Tigger, also signed up and in July 2011 - we will both attend this camp together. Sign up for their daily emails....you won't be sorry.

While I still have many things I'm working on changing and improving and my goals seem to become more clear - while I go through this incredible journey that I have started - one thing I know and I see....

In 429 days...I am going to be 50 - Fit, Fabulous, and Foxy. Yeah....I know it sounds corny....but I like it.

Look out everyone....I'm on my way.
