Want to know more about what natural products are available for you?

Can you believe it?  Not only are we closing out another year, we are closing out another decade! (Technically, I know that the new decade doesn’t actually begin until the year 2021, but for me the last ten years have been a decade to remember).

Reflecting on a Decade

I’ve done a lot of reflecting over the last couple of weeks and I have come to the obvious conclusion that I am not the same person I was as I entered into the 2010’s.  Not even close.

A lot can change in ten years!  Agree?

In 2009, I ended an emotionally abusive marriage and was a very broken and scared woman. The only thing that kept me going at that point was protecting my three daughters.  I’ve come a long way in ten years!

Since ringing in the year 2010, I have watched my daughters graduate from high school, graduate from college, and get married.  They have grown into some pretty terrific humans.

I, too, had some pretty dramatic changes.  I met and married my most perfect match and gained a bonus daughter with him. This past decade, my family grew from four to nine!

Like I said, a lot can change in ten years.

If you would have asked me ten years ago if I wanted to write a blog, I would have laughed at you.  But here I am...and I love everything about writing.

I spent the last 30 years drafting, proofing and writing legal documents for attorneys.  I cannot tell you how refreshing it is to write for myself and to be able to write about topics I love.

2019 was the year I started my blog.  I would be lying if I said I wasn't nervous about it.  In fact, I'll admit that I get nervous every time I click "Publish".

Don't let anyone ever tell you that you are too old to start something new.  I'm 51 and only discovered my new passion when I hit menopause a few years ago.  My desire to share my journey into natural hormone balance was a way I can honor my mother, while helping other women at the same time.  The reception has been overwhelming and for that I am thankful.

I am not the same person I was in 2010.  Far from her.  I like the person I am as I move into 2020.

I am excited for my future!  Each new day is a gift and challenge that I am ready to take on.

This next decade will bring on new adventures for my husband and me.

  • My husband is retiring from photography in 2020 and is moving on to real estate development.
  • I plan to continue to write my blog and grow my business (something I never dreamed I would be doing).  I love working for myself, but more importantly, I love that two of my daughters are running alongside me.
  • The best thing ever about this next decade: GRANDCHILDREN! I've been told it will happen in the next couple of years.  I'm ready.  I never thought I would be excited about being a grandmother, but I am.

Reflecting on a Decade...

What were the biggest changes in your life over the last ten years?  Where do you see yourself heading in the next ten years?  I would love to know.

I want to close by saying THANK YOU!  I wish nothing but good blessings for you and your families as we close out this year and start a new one.

Live healthy, my friends, and remember that age is just a number.
