Welcome to Maturista.com

Growing old is a phase in life that many of us don’t like to think about let alone talk about. Aging is kind of a conversation killer at most get togethers. But in retrospect, aging has come a long way. People are living longer thanks to science, medicine and the conveniences of modern society. In fact, you control a big part of the aging process through your emotions, thoughts and actions.

Speaking of thoughts and emotions, mine have been working overtime to take me to a place I’ve never been. Enter empty nest. This new phase in life coupled with the fact that I will turn the big 5-0 in 2015 has led me on an emotional journey of self-discovery. Over the course of 22 years I have been wife to a patient, loving husband and mother to two great sons. Recently both of my boys moved away to college, leaving behind a quiet house. With their move, I have come to a fork in the road. One in which I can veer off toward sadness and the ordinary or I can choose to take the new, exciting path toward self-discovery. It is that fork that I’ve bypassed so I could share with my husband the responsibility of raising our sons to the wonderful, young men they have become. This new path will lead me back to the love I once had…the love of writing.

With this newfound freedom, I have created this outlet to share experiences, advice and support for readers who plan to make the most of their mid-life years. Although we may all be at different stages in life, such as empty nest, retirement, grandparents, we all have many of the same aging concerns. Welcome to Maturista.com! I hope you will join me in a positive virtual blog that will inform and possibly entertain you with material that concerns people of a certain age such as gray hair, technology, empty nest, aging parents, fitness, diet, etc. Feel free to leave a comment. This is a work in progress. Soon you will be able to follow me on Twitter and Facebook.

    I look forward to traveling the journey with you! I am not quite the “empty nester”, but will have my first daughter (of three children) in college very soon. The wisdom imparted and stories shared on your blog will hopefully allow me to be more :-)
