Yoda Lynne - Checking in Five Years Later...

Our blog "nudge" today from Effy Wild is to re-post something from our blog that was previously written, and with seven years worth of posts on my blog I thought it was going to be really hard to choose, but the following is the very first blog post I came across, which I wrote in April, 2012, about a month before my 50th birthday... I called it "YODA Lynne" and as I read this brief but informative and to-the-point post I realized that here I am, over five years later and doing EXACTLY what I wrote in this post - Yeaaah Me!  So isn't it just the perfect choice for today... ENJOY!!

NOTE:  If I wrote this today I think I would add the definition of Yoda from which is:
"Yoda was a legendary Jedi Master and stronger than most in his connection with the Force. Small in size but wise and powerful, he trained Jedi for over 800 years, playing integral roles in the Clone Wars, the instruction of Luke Skywalker, and unlocking the path to immortality."
"...small in size but Wise and Powerful..." YUP that's totally meeee! (grin) Here's that post: (or Go HERE for the original)

Yoda Lynne

Well it has been a CRAZY, but WONDERFUL year for me as I steam full-speed-ahead toward my 50th birthday... Yup 50! (gulp) I was feeling VERY stressed over this upcoming milestone when I realized.... "I AM TURNING 50!" (I made it! I am here!)  and I realized I don't want to be one of those women who worries constantly about weight, wrinkles, growing old and sagging - but that I want to be one of those women who embraces life!  I want to Live MY life so you only see my personality - not my body!  Life really IS too short to waste one more minute on worrying about anything I can't control or change AND I am not going to waste one more SECOND spending time with anyone that sucks the joy out of my life!  As of today I am moving forward EMBRACING the badges of aging... saggy, wrinkly, grey, pear-shaped me! But my soul shines through my eyes and I have a nice energy about me and now I can be old and WISE - Just call me Yoda Lynne! 
Me on my 55th birthday

From the wise and all powerful YODA Lynne... Giggle



  1. I love this Yoda Lynne! Were you able to do what you told yourself on your 50th? You look happy <3

    1. Absolutely! Another example of the power of writing it down. It's like I programmed it into myself so even if I am not consciously thinking about everything I wrote, I still kept moving in that direction. I have been embracing all of me these past five years and as I shed those people sucking my joy one by one life became sweeter and sweeter... I am now LOVING my 50's, and I do believe it shows! Thank you for the comment and I hope I answered your question. Smile

  2. Oooooh that's so uplifting, I'm really glad I read this, thank you ♥️

  3. I love this pots, Lynne! I had a terrible time turning 50. I work in a school where most of the staff are young enough to be my daughter/son and a few cheekily call me Grandma. I struggle to love myself and my wrinkles and saggy boobs etc etc, but creativity does help. Thanks for sharing this, it's brightened my day. Big hugs, Jo xxxxxx

  4. What a powerful post! Yes to old and wise and not being defined by the parts that are sagging. And what a beautiful example you are, for all of us. Thanks!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment, I read every one and reply when I can.
