Day 3372 - Who wants to add to my 50 before 50 list?

This is not a bucket list! 

This is definitely not a bucket list.  It's more of a "fuckit list" as I spend the next 18 months celebrating the downward slide to, then the fabulous year that is, 50.

I'd love for you to give me some ideas on things to do before my fabulous fifty turns into a 51 (which is a 50 with an annoying dangle hanging off it).

I need fifty things people!

Day 3368 - Tips for buying a swimsuit in middle age

Get over yourself and just buy the damn swimsuit! 

Surf Beach NSW, Australia

I was laying on the beach last week watching all the people wander back and forth from the water.  People of all shapes, sizes and ages enjoying the sunshine and battling the heat by cooling themselves in the ocean.

Day 3365 - Making Fifty FUN!

My word of the year - FIFTY! 

If you've been reading me for the last few years you'll know I'm a huge fan of the "word of the year".  I love this simplicity of it and the inspiration a word can have.  A simple reminder to keep us on track.  For the last few years my words have been FOCUS, WILL, SOLUTION, OPPORTUNITY, ONWARD & UPWARD (that was the year I rebelled and had 2 words) and BE.  Then last year I accepted the challenge to find a word that started with the initial of my name and went with LIGHT.

I'm not doing that this year.  I'm being very un-Leanne and ditching the motivational word.  I'm going for something completely different.  Instead I'm going to focus on my inspirational age.

Day 3361 - The Lovin Life Linky - Welcome to 2019

Happy New Year Balcony

Normally I'd start the year off with a post about my Word of the Year, or a motivational post about us having a clean slate in which to create our life, or a list of wondrous things I plan to achieve over the next 12 months.  All of which is so predictably "Leanne" and just a tad Deep Fried.

Nope. Not doing that this year.  For my first post of 2019 I thought I'd simply roll out my shiny new balcony setting instead.

Day 3347 - The Lovin Life Linky end of year edition

Sometimes what fills the heart also breaks it

This week we took off to the coast for a few days just to "be".  Just the four of us trying to escape the realities of the world and embrace as a small family unit.  The people around us have been amazing and the extent of the outreach is incredible.  But sometimes you just have to take a step outside and breathe.

Day 3340 - What song would you choose for your funeral?

Chelsea Dagger

Before you start reading, please press play. 

Yesterday we celebrated Chelsea's life at her final farewell.  She had chosen her own music to play at the service and let's just say the entry song wasn't an obvious choice for a funeral, but one that made everyone smile and tap their feet.  It was the perfect way to lighten up a sombre occasion.

Day 3333 - The Lovin' Life Linky - More Important than ever

Just eat the damn doughnut ...

I've been laying in bed contemplating if I should get up and blog today.  It's Lovin' Life day but how can I bang on about lovin' life when Chelsea lost her fight yesterday?

Day 3326 - Letters to Chelsea

The gift of a heartfelt letter.

For business owners there is a lot of power in a testimonial.  For employees, they rely heavily on references to elevate them and declare them worthy.  When we pass away, people stand up in front of a crowd and honour us via a heartfelt eulogy which combines memories with how we've added value to the world and why we won't be forgotten.

Words written by others declaring our strengths and expressing how we make our mark, can help us realise we are far greater than the person we believed ourselves to be.

Day 3312 - Dig deep .... there's always something to love

Just when you think there's nothing to love, the Universe sends you a magpie ...

I was sitting at my desk yesterday morning looking at the rain outside the window and wondering why life couldn't be a little bit easier.  Why are there such horrible diseases in our world, why is there so much heartache for some, why can't miracles be more widely distributed.  

I was wondering what the hell I could possibly love about life when a magpie came to the balcony and sat right outside our French doors to escape the rain and warbled his lovely magpie song.  It was more like yodeling to be honest and I thought "Cathy would love this".
