So you may be wondering about the name of this blog – The Lanai and I. A Lanai is what people who live in tropical areas refer to as their covered patios, outdoor living areas, pool areas, etc. You know, those wonderful places that those of us who live in the north dream about. Kevin, and I don’t have a Lanai. We only have dreams of one. One of these days all of our hard work is going to pay off and we are going to have our own, fabulous Lanai. We are going to spend most of our time there with tropical foliage everywhere and the ocean right beyond the lanai. Ahhh, sounds great! For the time being our lanai is only in our minds. Each day when I come to you I am going to pretend I am writing from our tropical oasis.
What is this blog all about? It’s about mid-life – a weird place that I have found myself. Now that I have found myself here I have discovered the following: I have no idea who I am, what I believe and what has happened to my sexy, little, cheerleader body! I am also suddenly awakening to what could be coming in the future! Growing old is not for the faint of heart!
I am about as ordinary as any person on this planet so I know that if I am going through this loss of identity, there are thousands, maybe millions, of others who are in the exact same place. My mission is to tread these unknown waters with purpose and direction and to share every step of the journey with you. Maybe together we can all figure out who we are and where we are going during the second have of our time here on earth. I am resolute in my efforts to find out who I am, to get my body back to a healthier weight and condition, figure out how I want to grow spiritually, fend off the ravages of old age and fill each day with purpose.
I would love to have you join me on this journey! Please subscribe to receive updates directly to your inbox!
