................................a journal about aging naturally, one wrinkle at a time.
Hi Louise, Paige Pellegrino from Lewiston here. I don't know how I ever stumbled upon this blog a few months ago, but it has been very sweet. So many of your words have given me cause to both laugh and shed some tears. For me 51 is awesome in most ways; painful in others. I am fulfilling my life long passion that I never knew existed--sharing my love of yoga. Teaching and sharing with the most wonderful people that I have been blessed to meet. Growing older one breath at a time. No Botox for me baby; however, I will never pass on lipstick, hahaha! I find myself asking questions as most women do in their 50's; my second child off to college. Did I do it right? Could I have been a better mother, wife, teacher? Am I ready to settle in on the next phase of my life? Am I happy? Am I where I want to be? Well, the questions will continue to come, but it's nice to have support from women who are embracing life with the questions and heartfelt desires that I feel. Keep blogging, enjoy your trip home to Western New York. It was an almost magical place to grow up. Hold every feeling close to your heart! Be well. Love, Paige xoxo
Paige it's great to hear from you. Thank you so much. I like to hear that you are teaching yoga. The breath of life. We really do ask ourselves many questions at mid-life. I feel mid-life is like reaching cruising altitude on a plane. We basically know who we are, and aren't, and what we need to be happy. The big take-offs, and hunting and gathering has subsided, and we just need to fine tune life and remain true to ourselves. And be unafraid. That's the big thing.Anyway, I would love for you to be one of my beauties of the week if you are interested. I have fond memories of you and can tell that we're on a similar course in life.Love to you Paige,Louise
