Welcome to my second blog! The other one, my creative blog, is here. This one is more of a thinking blog, and, I hope, will be interactive with my blog readers.
My intention is to post weekly on a topic that's relevant to older women. Week One's topic is Getting Out Of Our Rut And Doing Something New.
Look at the world around us - older women tend to be sidelined, overlooked, even invisible. We're someone's wife, mother or grandmother, and often not thought of as an individual. You don't think you're invisible? Try walking down the street in a strange town, and see how many people meet your eye, or take any notice of you. I discovered that I was invisible when I moved to Christchurch 8 years ago. At first, I was angry. Clearly, I had reached an age when I was no longer interesting or desirable. But after a while, I decided it was liberating. I could do what I liked, wear what I liked and no-one would notice.
Let's reclaim our place in the world by sharing and enhancing all our years of experience and wisdom, and doing new stuff in this new decade.
Here's 3 things I've come up with that I want to do in 2011 :
1. Start a university degree
2. Learn to rollerblade
3. Travel to Australia
What are YOUR 3 new things?
