#16: The Dark, The Light, and The Messy Middle of Turning 50

Episode 16: The Dark, The Light, and The Messy Middle of Turning 50

In this episode…

I have been thinking about this episode for the past three months, trying to decide what would be impactful to share about my journey of turning 50 years old.


I have been celebrating outwardly. Hopefully, you've seen some of the fun Instagram reels of me dancing and celebrating and being silly because I sincerely and truthfully have loved turning 50 and the process that has brought me here.

I will also say the parts of me that I have not been so public about are some of my fears and some of the in-between decisions. I am baring a lot in this episode.  You are part of my community and I have been learning to relax into you knowing that you've got me.


I'm sharing a little bit about the darkness, the lightness and the messy middle.  The reviews on this podcast, the texts, the phone calls, and the IRL connections where you've checked in on me have filled my heart so completely full. Thank you for sharing this space to explore and to help me become more of who I am.


Be sure and listen until the end.  A few friends have shared their thoughts on turning 50 as well.  Thank you Sheila Botelho, Dr. Tiffany Slater, Doni Aldine and Rev. Sheila Johnson for adding your voice to this conversation!



Highlights of this episode:

  • Darkness:  transitioning from corporate to entrepreneurship
  • Messy middle:  trying to balance motherhood of teenagers, exploring entrepreneurship, being hyper-aware of my mother's needs, and more
  • Light:  the overwhelming love I received at my 50th birthday party with friends and family
  • My commitment to culinary nutrition
