On turning…61

Turning 60 was a great year. I amped up my living. I always have done, but this past year of being 60 years old felt exceptional, both with some amazing creations along with some devastating downfalls.

And now, on to 61…bigger, better, and more badass than ever!I feel like I keep living fuller and sexier, than every year before. I don’t strive so hard, now I thrive. I continue to change how I look at the world, and how I run my life. Getting older does that to a person, but instead of feeling low down about it, I am more excited than ever! I am enjoying… so much more… friends, time, freedom, creative projects, and connections, both from work that I love and from pleasurable activities that I continue to create. I am giving myself more freedom and that feels delicious. I do create my life the way I want it. I always have, but even now, everything feels more deliberate, with more meaning. More heart and soul! Desires, listening to my inner being and allowing for the expansion.

And I never quit questing, growing, listening, learning, sharing, teaching, being present in my body, my heart, and my soul.  

Follow your heart and your bliss. Of course, I would tell everyone that if they asked me for advice. As a transformational lifestyle coach and a global dance instructor, I see so often women, (because I have worked predominantly with women for most of my career) who settle, who aren’t willing, or are fearful of taking that step, whether it be a big leap or a baby step, toward what they truly want. My passion is to mentor them, to guide them towards the fulfillment we all deserve, we are all put on earth to have.

I’ve never been that way, never been afraid to take a risk, to go after those visions, and to let life unfold. I’ve always been one to go after what I want. I am a magical manifestor, and most everything I touch turns to gold. I believe in my vision, my desires, my feminine magical powers of creation and beauty. And I LOVE life. What can I say? I have a freakin’ great time. I have traveled the globe, I have had amazing opportunities, I have had creative freedom. I believe I have co-created it all, with the universe, source, god.

I do watch now, as I age, change, my body, my skin, those things that do change physically. It’s odd, yet beautiful. The skin sags a bit more. I notice a new shape emerging around my waist. I know I’m more forgetful than I used to be. I don’t ever want to deny my age or my appearance, to be something it’s not meant to be. I quit coloring my hair a few years ago, from bleached blonde, to now, salt and pepper, and I quite like it. This to me is life, the life I have lived to where I am today.  As a professional dancer, I’ve always been active, incredibly fit, and I will continue that self-care because it feels really good to be toned and strong and alive in my skin. So taking great care of myself and this beautiful temple that I dwell in is of the utmost importance, just like it always has been.

Vital…that’s how I feel, and how I want to continue to exist — lively, energetic, active, sprightly, spry, spirited, vivacious, exuberant, bouncy, enthusiastic, vibrant, zestful, sparkling, dynamic, virile, vigorous, lusty, hale and hearty. Oh, aren’t those juicy words to live with?

I may have to do some things differently now to maintain my life to be what I want it to be. But isn’t that always true, no matter what age? I invite all you women out there to stand tall and proud and show off your beautiful self, to take great care of your body, mind, and spirit. Continue to dream big and keep taking those steps, risks, for continuing pleasure and fulfillment, to continue to do the work you are here to do, to breathe deep, enjoy, and thrive!

So, changes, yes, but I’m still that crazy, tattooed, bellydancing, guitar strumming, passionate badass life coach, and queen of my domain! Standing tall and vital and proud of being 61.

Thank you for sharing this journey…
