I breathed a big sigh of relief when I turned 50. My 40’s
had been some pretty rough years.
Oprah reached that milestone five years ahead of me. She
showed the world that 50 was just the beginning of some of our best years, and
I felt a complete kinship to her because of that.
But even fortified by Oprah’s example, my 50th year didn’t go as well as I had hoped. That year saw the end of my short-lived marriage, and for the first time I was completely alone.
Which is exactly what I needed.
I was deeply honored to be featured on Catherine GraceO’s Forever Fierce podcast. She is a wonderful host that put me at ease and coaxed my story and thoughts out effortlessly.

One year ago I decided to let it all hang out, literally and figuratively.
In my first blog post I decided to “expose the truth” and get real. We live in this fast paced social media world filled with false beauty and unrealistic expectations, and I wanted to challenge that.
