I try and keep my face to the sun and get up when I fall down, usually less than gracefully.
Though it's usually best to start at the beginning, this way works better for me.
At one time or another, I have been a:
professional R&D baker
print production manager
in-ground pool, heavy construction manager
stained glass artist
internet development director
investor realtions manager
stay at home mom
Now, I am the inventor and manufacturer of a great line of natural moisturizers and this is the best job I've ever had. There's a lot to be said for making a product that really works and that people really like.
I have two fabulous daughters, 32 and 29 and two adorable granddaughters, 4 and 8 for whom I knit occasionally. I also have a wonderful partner in life and business.
I am "a woman of a certain age" and I think it's grand. Finally I can take up ridiculous sports without worrying about what anyone thinks. And I can state my opinion (of which I have many). And I know what I want - and what I don't want. And I'm cool with a lot more things than I used to be like being late, and angry about a lot more things than I used to be like our deteriorating environment.
I have a wonderful partner, my "brilliant half". It took me three tries to find him - but he's worth the wait!
And I can laugh at myself, which I have to do often. And I can care deeply and love deeply and try really hard and it’s okay if I fail – because I can always try something else. And I can sit and knit in the sun. And I can cry and laugh for no reason or any reason. And I can meditate.
And life may not be easy - but it is, truly grand.
