Getting older is like dieting. There is never enough information and it can never be repeated too many times because we women especially at mid life don’t want to miss anything that could make us look better, feel better, and be better. Women in general want to understand and know others are experiencing similar issues. We all have that, “Why is this happening to me?” attitude.  And is there a pill, cream, pellet etc. to just make it all better. Lord knows we will pay ANYTHING for the fountain of youth and skinny.

Did you know that most women walking around at the age of Forty Something and older have one, some, or all of the next few things you are about to read happening to them? They have started growing hair in unwanted places, they have developed full blown panic attacks, they have stopped having sex due to dryness, a good nights sleep is almost non existent, their bras are padded to push up or perform an illusion from disappearing breasts, and some are wetting their pants in public. These symptoms will happen to many of us eventually... but are you aware that some of them can start to happen mid life in your late 30's and early 40’s? Many of these changes come as a complete surprise. Why? Because no one is talking. I mean why did they stop after "What to Expect When You're Expecting" what about "What to Expect as Your Body Starts Falling Apart" I mean what the hell? No one could have given a heads up? A warning, of sorts of what is to come, to help you gracefully mature through your forties and beyond.  

I think this is what I want to focus on in my blogs. Better yet, I hope to have you laughing also as you face your bodies’ metamorphosis into a different kind of beauty. It have a feeling it can be an amusing journey if you are open-minded and pro-active with the challenges and changes that lie ahead. I will try to find links to articles that can give us some insight and pass them along. Some weeks I may go off on other issues I come across in life or experiences that I feel I just have to share because I am thinking, "SHUT-UP" did this just really happen?  You have to wonder if other cultures try to hold onto youth like western societies. Truly how much of what we say is peri menopause or menopause? Maybe just maybe it's just straight up aging. Maybe my hair is falling out because I'm getting OLDER. That's it... no medical term needed? Now there is a novel idea! 

Keep looking forward so you don't miss what God puts in front of ya!

Hmmmm so let me get this straight. I write my personal thoughts out loud and complete strangers voluntarily read what I have to say. No wonder newspapers are going out of business. People used to get hired for doing stuff like this, writing information for people to read. Strange... but I'll bite. I feel I should introduce myself. I would think you would want to know what makes me tick before you read what I have to say. 

Born Panamanian, naturalized my senior year of high school, and now I'm in my mid to late 40's. That's my short painless version to get you to today. So take into account when I am writing my mood is fluctuating and people are pissing me off or making me cry on a daily basis. I have a wonderful family! Been married for 20 plus years to a bald man (by choice he says) 5 years older than me and we produced two kiddos, one of each.  I have been a journalist most my life.  I do lots of freelance work. Acting, commercials, voice overs, speaking engagements, reporting, radio, the mommy thing, and well now blogging.

Not a big fan of social media, find it kind of a fake world where many hate on each other. Too much hate makes me sad. I digress, let's see... oh yes! I know, let me give you some ammunition to judge me by. I am conservative, Catholic, black, hispanic, petite, and love love people. Not too big on judging people myself, since I have a knack for putting my foot in my mouth. I have my opinions yes, and I am very competitive but I accept defeat gracefully. Let's say I try, more accurate.

So that's basically it. I'll clarify that I am a television journalist not print journalist. What's the difference you ask? Not so great grammar, fragments, misspellings and so on... Television journalist tend to write how we speak, more conversational! I would have never made it as a print journalist, so this blog thing is the closest I will ever get. Throw in that english is the  second language I learned, my mom still speaks to me in spanish and I communicate back in a mix mash of spanglish. So before you critique my writing let me preface that I am not trying to win an english contest. I'm just going to be writing what's on the mind of a 40-Something and throwing myself out there to get you to laugh, think, and just enjoy. If you are looking for a perfect journalist, you will be disappointed and sadly frustrated! If you want to laugh with me and enjoy a light read, follow along for a great ride.

So how long is a blog anyway? I guess as long as I want huh?  Well, I look forward to sharing my journey with you once a week! Until my next urge to think out loud...

Keep looking forward so you don't miss what God puts in front of ya!
