50 over 50 Project No. 44 -Diane Age 57

 
 

I am an administrator for a retail car company so that keeps me busy.

Living my own life and on my terms now, and a little bit wiser (hopefully) at the age of 57.

My childhood was difficult so that has made me the person I am. The worst hardship recently of my life was losing my husband 17 months ago to cancer. When he died a large part of my heart died too. I have changed from the person I used to be into someone I hardly know sometimes. My life has changed in so many ways and as one chapter of the book of life has finished I now have to start writing a new chapter and it’s very scary.
My two sons. They are my greatest creation.
Just feeling satisfied and settled from within yourself. Life tends to throw a curve ball to disrupt this but we keep trying.
WHAT IS YOUR MOST TREASURED POSSESSION
At this time in my life my house and my health. I feel safe there and I have happy memories. Its the one place I can call my own and I’m proud of that.
To swim with dolphins.
I have never been an extravagant person really. But one special extravagance was going to Mauritius to see my youngest son get married. That certainly was a trip of a lifetime.
Inwardly nothing. Outwardly my body lol. My weight has always been an issue and on a constant diet. But I am who I am and I am now getting to the age where I need to just enjoy and embrace the woman that I am.
My loyalty to my friends and punctuality.

50 0ver 50 project

Unconditional love. I only have a very small circle of ‘besties’ but I can be sure if I needed them they would be there for me and visa versa.
Hindsight is a wonderful thing. If things were different at that time maybe I would be different now. Who knows?
Observation is the key !!! You can learn an awful lot by just observing and saying nothing!!
