Night sweats, unpredictable periods, mood swings, excessive blushing, hot flashes happen to the best of us.
These signs that you’re moving into the next phase of your life can be unnerving. This is when your hormone levels start to fluctuate so be prepared and understand the most common concerns women have.
These signs can start as early as the mid-thirties for some and for others not until after 50.
When the signs initiate, you don’t notice them much. In fact you ignore them but fate brings you back to reality in the most hostile manner.
One day when you’re looking in the mirror expecting to see that pretty young thing, the one that often triggered a whistle, a stare or an inappropriate comment from the opposite sex, instead, you’re staring at a fully grown woman who looks a lot like her mother.
One thought will keep going through your mind, “When did this happen?!”
Aging has to take place and so it will, but the main question is what are you doing to keep these natural effects of the process in check?
You must do something to remain as close to your younger counterpart as you can.
I’m not telling you to do something drastic, but in order to continue living a healthy and attractive life, there are many things that you should consider.
You’re skin care, your diet, your habits; everything that has a direct effect on you and your body.
My aim is not to depress you, maybe just wake you up a bit.
In fact, the event of moving into this phase can be a beautiful occurrence, something to celebrate and be radiant about.
At least that is what we are all told!
It means you have successfully crossed the half-way point on the bridge of life. I did say my aim is not to depress you, didn’t I?
Seriously, if you take some steps now, it really won’t be a big deal. In fact, you can look in the mirror and marvel how well you look.
The key is to start NOW.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
There is that moment in every writer’s life when they decide they are tired of hoping to one day write professionally, and decide it is time to get noticed. Breaking into the writing business does not have to be a complicated venture. Making yourself marketable and shining above the competition is very important and takes a lot of work. By creating a portfolio, perfecting your writing techniques, and creating a blog you will be taking the first vital steps to being a successful, and paid, professional writer.
Ruth Ford Elward, a story teller of Mystery and Thrillers. “I love mysteries, whether it be solving a crime that’s been committed or finding a long lost artifact that could change the world or how to thwart a plot to regain a kingdom. Another love of mine is thrillers, because the pace is faster and the hero has to be more resourceful than the often better equipped villain,” says Ruth.
After years in the business world between managing a division for an international financial printing company, modeling in her spare time and later to performing esthetic treatments, Ruth decided her real passion lies in the world of writing.
“Writing keeps the mind sharp and gives me the opportunity to exercise my imagination to engage the reader,” says Ruth. “One of my greatest joys is to be able to lose myself in my writing. So my writing ranges from Mystery, Suspense, Thrillers which includes the areas of International Mystery and Crime, Paranormal Mystery, Spy Thrillers and Speculative Fiction to the various challenges of aging in Non-Fiction.”
Ruth lives in Colorado and enjoys biking, golfing and ballroom dancing in her spare time.What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
It’s not what but who inspired me to write. Since most people know Katie Couric from her television career, with her long stint on “The Today Show” and more recently with her own talk show, Katie ‘Talk That Matters’, you may find it strange that I as a fiction author, consider her a writing inspiration.
She may be most famous for writing an extremely touching book about her husband’s death from colon cancer, when in fact, she’s actually written over a dozen books.
To date, Katie has written numerous books for adults and children alike. She touches on topics that most other authors wouldn’t dare. In addition, she’s also co-authored many books on health, fashion, and social issues.
