Women my age often complained to me that they became invisible once they reached half a century. The majority of we women have led a busy fulfilled life being mothers, wives and co-breadwinners. After reaching that milestone age of 50, with kids leaving the nest and feeling despondent, I felt a big void in my life. It was with this in mind that I decided to start up 50 Shades Of Age – a website where I could reach out to my sisters and tell them that their lives could be so much more. I wanted to be the voice for the new-age 50 something year olds to empower and motivate them to feel worthy again! I am now able to condense my articles on my thoughts of being a 50-something year old and bring them to you in a lighthearted and sometimes highly amusing approach in the form of this book.
