What 47 Looks Like on Me

I’ve been doing this a few years, post-birthday, sharing where I am, how far I’ve come, and where I hope to go. I have to say, 47 is weird.

Character Confession: The Heat is On and So is the Central Air

It’s my Character Confession day! I tell you how I’m really feeling and hopefully it is an encouragement or smile to someone who can relate. I’ve made no secret about it so in case you missed it, I’m 41 and in full blown menopause. I’ve had hormonal issues since puberty and I can tolerate quite a bit of discomfort and pain.
