I completely resonate with your experience. Mine were similar at the same age! I turned 60 last year and while all of my dreams have yet to come true, I am living a more authentic, self-directed life every day. I wish I had had a companion in my journey, a mentor, a guide, a support. So I applaud your desire and willingness to share your journey with others like us. It will make their journey smoother I am certain!
Wonderful to meet a kindred spirit! I wrote my book, Dream BIGGER, at the age of 52. Celebrated my 55th birthday last fall and have challenged myself to do 55 fun things this year! It’s inspiring to read about your adventures and explorations. Keep us posted!
