Then we better get busy living while we still can.
Living Midlife in full swing
Is about shrugging off the notion that aging happens gracefully. It’s about looking around you, then asking
What can I do today?
It’s about realizing how lucky you are when you get to greet another day. It’s about re-defining the so-called downhill slope. It’s about making a difference in your life and the lives of others.
The way I see it is this; I’d rather plan a birthday party than a funeral any day of the week!
I created Beyond the Backyard Blues as both a blog and a movement.
I want to do more than show up in my life–I want to challenge myself to live my midlife in full swing daily.
I want to connect with people like you, a person who refuses to sit on the sidelines of their own life wishing they had dared to live more fully.
It means living with intention by seeking out the extraordinary. It means finding and extending joy. It means shaking off the blues of aging by going past the boundaries created by the proverbial fence line of one’s backyard.
