So I just turned 50 in June and I have been trying to figure out what to do with the rest of life … I need more purpose. I have a life coach and a therapist, actually I have 2 therapist – yes I need that much outside help. Anyway with all that help you would think I would be able to figure this life out and what to do with this next chapter. Through the coaching process and with the help of my therapists I have discovered some self awareness which is good. I have not had that Aha Moment yet of what the rest of this life is going to look like. I think I know what I don’t want to do, but I am still sorting that out too. I know one thing for sure, it is that I am grateful for the first 50 years and all the trial and errors of my life. I am grateful to make it to this place in life where I have a choice of what my future looks like. In the meantime I have been reading a lot of self help books … the latest “Finding the Meaning of the Second Half of Life … How to finally, Really Grow Up. I will figure this out some way, some how.

I am 50 + years old - I have already survived my midlife crisis, I am an alcoholic/addict and I have suffered for years with Ulcerative Colitis, in 2005 I had my entire large intestine removed. I have dealt with depression and anxiety all my life and today it is under control. I have survived many ups and downs on the rollercoaster of life. I want to share my story and my experiences on this blog. View all posts by lorah
