Thanks for coming to my new blog. For some of you this may be your first encounter with me. And for others you may have come to know and love me (or not!!!) via my adoption blog, but either way…I’m glad you came and WELCOME to Middle Rageously.
You are probably asking yourself. What is Tami up to now? Yea, I ask myself that everyday! Here’s the deal. I turn 40 in 6 months. Yes, I’m a Gemini and that explains my ADHD or should I say my extreme creativity. So, instead of being sad about the big 4-0, trying to lie about it, or avoiding it all together, I’ve decided to embrace it. After all, they say 40 is the new 30, 20, 10 or whatever the heck it is today. I just know one thing, I’m glad my 30's are almost over!
While many of you may feel differently, how do I say this nicely…there is no other way than to just say it… My 30's SUCKED! Life simply wasn’t what I thought it would be in my 30's. My how quickly a decade passes. I’m determined not to let another one go to waste! Because I believe in research, I looked for other blogs and resources that celebrated the 40's, but I was hard pressed to find any that represented my life. No one looked like my friends or me. Meaning, we don’t look 40, act 40 (whatever that is) and are not giving up simply because we have hit some predetermined mileage or middle age. So, since I couldn’t find what I was looking for I decided to create it.
Middle Rageously is that place where we are proving life is better now than it was in our 20's and 30's. It’s where we are finally living for ourselves and without fear of failure or of standing in judgment of other people. We are living amazing outrageous lives that are not dependent on our age because we defy all odds. Remember aging gracefully? We hear that and laugh (or cringe). We don’t want to age gracefully…we want to be outrageous, kick aging in the a$@ and continue to live our lives, better than we ever have before because we finally know who we are and aren’t afraid to say it, show it or be it. Here at Middle Rageously you will find:
• Insights about our new position in life (Say it loud, say it proud!)
• Beauty (my gray was cute at 15, acceptable at 25, UH NO at 40)
• Health (I hear an apple a day keeps the doctors away and a cup of green tea will keep those wrinkles at bay)
• Fashion (No frou-frou or Talbots here)
• Gossip (what our sisters in LaLa land are doing to make us proud…or not so much)
• Inspiration to keep you going (okay, maybe this is for me but you can read too)
• Family (I’ve learned to ignore mine better)
• Exercise (workout to save your metabolism, I beg you)
...And, much, much more. If you have suggestions, see topics or articles that you would like my unique spin on send me an email. If you would like to be a guest blogger send me an email. Anyone who knows me knows I love to get other people involved…just call me a giver. ☺
