At the time of this writing, I will turn 50 in less than 999 days… and counting.. interestingly, the day I decided to see how close I was to the “Big Five Oh” it was 999 days… weird, eh?  Coincidence? Fluke? Luck?  uh huh Kismet.  Fate.  Destiny!  I suddenly got a chill down my spine and began to imagine what I wanted my 50th year  (my own personal Jubilee!), on this earth to look like… (insert weird music here).  The picture is still coming together.  Regardless, I know there are a couple of things I really want to have behind me when I get to my Jubilee year!  (Did you know fifty represents power and celebration??)

Now, I’m officially in menopause.. memory lapses, hormonal mood changes, horrible insomnia and yes, the dreaded hot flashes (which mere words cannot begin to describe).  I’m staring fifty in the face.  It’s time.  This is not the time to lean back and relax.  Rather, I’m leaning into the winds that the change is stirring.. the winds of change.

Against the wind
I’m still runnin’ against the wind
I’m older now but still runnin’ against the wind
Well I’m older now and still runnin’
Against the wind

Rather than wollering in the midlife crises rants and raves about getting older.. I have decided to CELEBRATE MY JUBILEE… preparing my mind and body for a Fabulous Fiftieth birthday year and planning a truly spectacular “something” to commemorate my Jubilee!

So, this blog will chronicle my adventure through menopause while making healthy decisions… and making my 50th year a REAL JUBILEE!!  I’m gonna bring it on with a BANG!  So, welcome to HOT FLASH BANG! Jubilee!!!
