It's Been a Journey - But It's Never Too Late...
I never really imagined that my life would be like this. I didn't imagine that I would be a three-time book author. Before that, I didn't imagine that I would be unhealthy, in debt and divorced at 60 years old after 35 years of marriage.
I spent a lot of time growing up and as an adult never really thinking there was much else out there besides working myself to exhaustion and taking care of a family.
I was a business owner in partnership with my family. We had $6.6 million in properties to manage when my husband left. But it didn’t mean I had access to that kind of cash!
Actually, I had mounds of debt so I decided to get my real estate brokers license. That was a learning experience. Eventually, I managed to pull myself out of debt and began to be able to breathe a little bit.
On top of everything else, I had let myself get overweight and out of shape. When I decided to get in shape, I joined a boot camp. I couldn't even jog at first! I had to walk, then jog, before eventually competing in a few local 5k races. I was later recruited into a masters track club and competed in the National Senior Games in 2019.
Despite traveling for years with my former spouse (he was military), I was so afraid to travel on my own. It took a real act of courage to go to San Francisco, which might sound like a little "weak sauce" to some of you, but I had never driven to or been in the city by myself.
Since then I’ve solo traveled to North Carolina, South Carolina, a dude ranch in Wyoming, and Arizona (where I bought a warehouse).
I’ve also been to Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Egypt, France and Italy with groups or on tours. I went to Croatia by myself for a month in 2019.
And even though I have had plenty of challenges along the way, I am HAPPY! And I am positive and I encourage others to do the same.
All of this from a woman who was single, overweight, out of shape and broke ... at age 60!
While it might sound like I have “arrived” somewhere, I know it’s an ongoing journey and there is still much for me to do.
I've been where you are and I know how to get out of that place.
Join me, reboot your positivity, and let me encourage you to live your best life too!
