Healthy Hobbies

Monday, April 08, 2019

This year (this month) I turn 50.
I have thought long and hard on what these means to me.
Should I be sad? Should I embrace it? Am I old?

I made the decision to look 50 in the eye and take no prisoners! I'm all in.
I grew my hair out to it's "real" color -- gray. I love it.

Have I slowed down? Heck no!! I'm moving more than ever.
50 is just a number.
I'm finishing up my Mat Pilates certification, in hopes I can phase out of corporate life and phase in to turning a hobby into a job. It will be work, but work I love. I know I wont make the income I'm used to, but happiness outweighs the money. I'm tired of the corporate stress, and this year I realized that stress is a HUGE factor in my health. It is my biggest obstacle in getting healthy and maintaining a healthy weight.

I'm taking up photography - I may or may not be a pro, and that's okay. I'm learning, and I'm loving the challenge. It keeps me outdoors in nature. It helps me slow down, and exercise patience. It's kind of exciting and breathtaking to see baby Osprey appear. There's nothing like watching the sun rise or sun set out in the woods. There is a lot of beauty to explore, and take in. I get the fresh air, exercise, and beauty all in one.

Here's to April! Here's to 50!
