I wasn’t sure how I was going to handle turning the corner.  But, I can honestly say, it’s a piece of cake.  I attribute that to a few constants in my life…plenty of prayers, sleep and exercise.

I didn’t see the inside of a gym until I turned 40.  Both my son’s had graduated high school and my mom job was pretty much over as they saw it.  I finally had time for me.  I was a little nervous at first; not knowing how I was going to handle all that went along with fitness.  I am happy to say I am in better shape than I was at 30.  I am an avid runner and exercise is just a part of my day.   It’s never too late to get started.

I firmly believe sleep is what keeps you looking younger and feeling energized.  I have always maintained a strict sleep pattern.  They call it beauty sleep for a reason.

Confidence surely does come with age.  In my 30’s and early 40’s, I always worried about what people thought of me or that I should be at a certain point in my life.  Today, I am in a good place.  Getting older doesn’t mean you have to just get settled.  I have never been one to settle, and I am not about to start now.  Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.  I refuse to let anyone tell me otherwise.  In my opinion, nothing is sexier than wearing the confidence you’ve earned!


Turning Fifty really is fabulous!
