opening up like a rose

#midlife blog crestingthehill.com.au

A wonderful quote that inspires me - if my life isn't opening up at this stage, then when is it going to get the chance to do so? I'm taking every opportunity that comes my way to bloom! I want the second half of life to be about growing and opening up and finding my real purpose.

The second half of life can see people close in on themselves and distance themselves from the world around them. That's not for me, I want to expand myself and embrace change and find my place in this society we live in. To be open to new experiences and to not be judgemental of others and their choices.

  9. I know you are doing summersaults today with your exciting news! You are going to love being a grandma! I know I do. My twins will be a year old on the 5th and I can't believe it's already been a year! Maybe you'll get two like I did! They sure keep me hopping now that I am babysitting them full time!
