WELCOME TO CRESTING THE HILL

WHO AM I?

Hi I'm Leanne,

When I turned 50 I realized that I had the choice of sinking into middle age or celebrating it. I chose to celebrate and I started Cresting the Hill at the end of 2014. 

I used to define my life by saying I was a wife, or a mother, or by what I did as my profession. Now I define myself on my own terms - as a woman in my own right. I'm discovering who I am, and I'm really liking that person! I've reached the "crest of the hill" in life, the climb is behind me and the view stretches out in front.

WHY YOU'LL FIND THIS BLOG HELPFUL

If you've reached your 50's and feel a bit lost or defeated, I want to encourage you to refocus and re-discover yourself. Life as you know it isn't ending because the kids left home or because you don't look like a 20 year old anymore. No, life is just getting more interesting and I'd love you to dive in as we tackle the second half of life with joy and positivity.

If you feel like you need new direction or a breath of fresh air, then join me on this journey of re-creating ourselves. I aim to be a woman who is gracious and grateful, kind and considerate of others, fun and always having a smile to share, loving to my family and friends, and also knowing my boundaries and being true to myself.

I'll be sharing tips on how to find the sunshine in life, prompts on appreciating the many blessings that come our way, stories from my life and family, updates on how early retirement is working for me, and so much more. I don't have a comments section on my blog anymore, but you are welcome to email me or follow my Facebook page and comment there, I always love hearing from anyone who enjoys my blog.

I've also written an E-Book on the A to Zen of Life. You're welcome to a free copy (no strings attached!) Just click HERE to receive a copy.
