An introduction of sorts

Well, first of all, Hello..Thank you for stopping by. But, I am compelled to warn you…

I have been challenged with sitting down to write my first blog post without thinking about what I will write. I must fill 20 mins and not stop until the alarm rings. I knew I would be taking this course but did not expect this “no time like the present” to get started assignment… but here we go.

I created this blog to get back into the groove of writing while sharing my journey… which is not only about writing. I have come this far by losing myself and finding myself a number of times along the way on this 60+ year journey so far.

Going forward, I have some goals I want to accomplish but recognize that I am likely not the only one dealing with similar situations. A handful of health issues have caused me to rethink how I am going to improve my health and wellness and I am on the hunt for solutions!

My purpose is to find simple steps, simple solutions that are easy to explain and easily copied for anyone who shares this type of journey. I have heard the quips.. So much for the Golden years, they are not for the faint hearted. Well, I don’t care what colour you put to these years, I will age in my version of graceful, dang it! I do not want to be burdened with a schedule of Dr’s appointments. I WILL have fun, have adventures, travel and learn along the way. 

I am a unique one. May even be categorized by some as darn right quirky! I have two wonderful daughters and three grandchildren who call me “Eema” . I was named by my eldest grandson and it has lasted over time. Yes, I get questions of how on earth he came up with that. But that is a story for another time.

So, I will be sharing my wanderings, things I seek out to improve my health, adventures which feed my soul, fill my mind and give me the journey of

Eema Unleashed!

  1. Hi Jackie,
    I also decided to blog in my golden years, starting when I was 60, in 2012. The years since may not have been that ‘golden’, but blogging has become a passion of mine.
    I hope that you enjoy it as much as I have, and thank you for following my blog.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. That is great that you found a passion in blogging. I am so a work in progress. I do enjoy it and learning how to schedule time in (to remind me I started this) until it is a daily habit…I tend to get distracted really easily.
      I find the term “Golden Years” a promise that we look forward to but once there find a different reality for one reason or another. I try to think past my struggles of the day and find a happy place…I think blogging will do that for me. I can get lost in the words when I write.
      You are more than welcome, i love reading others days in blogs. Enjoy today the sun is shinning.

      1. I write blog posts the afternoon before, then post them in the morning.
        Then I answer all comments, and comment on all the blogs I follow, if they have posted anything. I thank all new followers, and then check emails.
        At midday, I get ready, and take my dog out. In the late afternoon, I follow up on any more comments, and write something for the next day before I make dinner, and relax for the evening.
        It tales at least 4 hours a day, sometimes more. But it is my main hobby, and I love being a blogger!
        Best wishes, Pete.
