Heading into 50

November 13th marked 6 months until my 50th birthday.

I started plotting and planning all the great things I was going to do in the coming 6 months.



1/2 Marathon

you know, like my own bucket list, things I could look to as accomplishments in the last 6 months of my 40’s.

but last week I had a revelation of sorts.

I am not as interested in doing as I am in being.

My bucket list isn’t really filled with trips and accomplishments. My bucket list is truly filled with love, compassion, being present, living intentionally.

Big ideas, big commitments to myself.


I want to lead with love, and start by truly loving myself

I want to let my light shine and not be afraid of being diminished as others grow in their light.

I want to go into the second half of my life focused on leaving a legacy that matters.


Don’t get me wrong, I still want to do cool stuff and have a lot of fun.

But with more meaning and intention rather than a get ‘er done focus.

“Look at what I have done” doesn’t resonate with me today.

Loving those important to me and being fully present in our mutual messy lives, that’s my new bucket list.


peace, lisa
