I am woman series

This week  I am honored to be writing a post for Michelle at Grammie Time for her I AM WOMAN series.  

Michelle asked me to write about ‘womanhood in today’s culture, empowering other women, inspiring others, you can share personal tales or other women who have inspired you. A post that celebrates women in a positive and encouraging way. Focusing more on the best part of being a woman.’

I decided to write about what it is like to be a woman in the 21st century and what it is like to be experiencing midlife.

Midlife is a time for celebration not hibernation! There are so many women experiencing midlife in a positive, fun and exciting way. Join them!

I do hope you will enjoy the post and also check out the other wonderful women who have participated in the series.

I love being a woman in the 21st Century!  I know there are some of you who still think that women still do not have the same opportunities but in general I think that we have come a long way from the days of Emily Pankhurst!  I also feel that experiencing midlife is such a fabulous phase of life and one that should be celebrated.

      Oh thank you Terri I’m so pleased you enjoyed it. We are at a wonderful stage of life it is all about how we approach it – grab life rather than getting hung up on the age thing. Have a great day!

    LOVE IT! Makes me happy that I’m getting up there. Was just saying last night to someone that I really am enjoying “growing up”!

    Trading hibernation for celebration is something I sometimes need to be reminded of. I’m off to read your post at Grammie Time!

      I think we all need reminding sometimes Robin so you aren’t alone there. Thanks for stopping by and also for reading my post on Grammie Time’s website. Have a beautiful day my friend. xx

    Such an inspiring post, Sue!
    Thanks a lot for sharing it with us.

    Sue, that is a great guest post! I don’t know how we have become so dismissive of the second half of life. That is when the fun and freedom really begin…as you point out. We’ve got some sense about things and some sense in general, to paraphrase you. I, too, am grateful for the time in which we’ve been born, when the opportunities and freedom for women (in our societies) are at an all time high. Yes, i agree, we have room to grow, but we’ve come a long way in this last 100 years. Thank you so much for sharing your post and this series with Upsy Daisy Linkup!

      Oh thank you so much Regina. I was pretty chuffed to be asked to write about midlife and who influences me. We certainly have lots to celebrate and the women of midlife I know are fabulous and enjoying every moment. Have a beautiful day!

    Sue, love this!! Such words of wisdom. I never expected this stage of life to be boring, but I’ve been surprised how many doors have opened for me in the past several months. It’s fun to learn to spread our wings even as we watch our daughters do the same!

    • Reply Sue Loncaric April 30, 2016 at 17:01

      Thank you Wendy and how exciting for you with the opportunities that have come your way in the last several months. It is fun doing what we have actually always taught our daughters to do – fly!

    Sue, I love how you are looking at sizzling through the second part of your life. When motherhood responsibilities lessen it gives us the opportunity to become someone new. Or at least follow some of our dreams and interests. Your blog is showing many other women that it’s okay to change and be more than we were. That’s priceless!

    • Reply Sue Loncaric May 4, 2016 at 14:12

      Hi Nikki! I try to be encouraging of others – I’m far from perfect but who is? We all are there for each other and I just love the women I have met through blogging. Have a fabulous week and love your cushions!

    I think coming into mid-life in the 21st century is an exciting thing. Thanks so much for sharing your post at the Over the Moon Link Party.

    • Reply Sue Loncaric May 7, 2016 at 06:33

      It certainly is exciting Sandy so different to when our Mums were t the same age. I think we have many more opportunities.
