Saw this great quote this first day of January from my dear friend Jamise; “12 New Chapters, 365 New Chances.”
Love it. It’s a big day. Not only the first day of the year, but….
Bucket List Divas launched today.
Were we ready?
Were we on time?
Do we know what we’re doing?
Haven’t got a clue.
But just like life, we’re diving in anyway.
So how did this adventure start? Well…with women going through big life changes realizing we have to start over. We have to rebuild. We have to start over, we have to rebuild and we’re tired.
We’re not spring chickens.
We’ve been through some shit. Look we’re even putting two spaces between sentences so that should give away our age. We’re trying to keep up with today’s society that’s really not geared for “women of a particular age.”
Maybe you’re the woman who’s kids left for college and you realized you’ve put every waking moment into the lives of your children. What the f&%$ are you going to do with the rest of your life?
Maybe you’ve gone through a split and your married friends think you’re contagious and they stay away for fear your divorce-itis may spread?
Maybe you’ve been dumped for the umpteenth time while your friends are now turning into grandparents and you haven’t even gotten past the dating stage but AARP is already sending you crap in the mail? WTF happened?
Maybe you want to go have some fun and adventure and you call your friends and you get so many “no” answers that you wish there was a 1-800-Dial-a-pal?
Whatever the case, we’ve got the rest of our lives to live and maybe…just maybe… it’s time to start having some fun while we’re doing this re-building. It’s not about “getting your life back,” it’s about creating one. Even better than before.
And the fun is not going to come knockin’ on our doorstep …so we’re making it ourselves.
We’re going to be trying out life. We’re going to be sampling different experiences, local events, restaurants, spas, sports, travel and so much more in hopes it inspires, it motivates, it makes you want to come adventure with us.
We got your back Girl!
Thanks for joining us on this Adventure
