Welcome to Willingness to Grow!
I started this blog in 2010 after realizing that although there are a myriad of healthy living blogs out there, there are very few written by a woman in her forties. And we are facing different issues than our younger women friends.
I enjoy being healthy and also helping those around me become more healthy – or at least educated as to healthy options. Because of my incredible love for animals, I have chosen to embrace a vegetarian lifestyle, although I approach it with kindness (meaning if I am served meat at a dinner party, I will eat it with a genuine smile on my face). I am neither critical nor judgmental of people who eat meat, but I do urge that people support stores and restaurants that offer humanely treated options.
All of my life, I have been an athlete, playing tennis, basketball and volleyball. In my thirties and early forties, I have competed in triathlons, 5k, 10k and 15k races, and half marathons. In the last few years, I have become passionate about yoga. As the aches and pains increase in my body, I strive to find a balance with my physical activities.
I am a former commercial finance attorney who retired from the law after twenty-one years and became an entrepreneur.
I am fortunate to live in beautiful Savannah, Georgia and so appreciate the stunning low-country views surrounding me.
This blog has morphed into more than a healthy living journal as I discuss many of my other interests, including my family, books, self-awareness, and music. I value your feedback and questions and, most importantly, your interest! If you would like to contact me, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
