Matching Perfumes to My Favorite Fictional Characters


 Recently, I thought it would be fun to figure out what some of my favorite movie characters would smell like. So I made two YouTube videos about it. The first highlights three female characters and the second is all about three male fictional characters. I hope you find these videos entertaining :-)

Midlife



As I approach the "other half" of my life, I find myself reflecting more and more. I think about the many choices I have made to get to where I am today. For many years, I told myself I had no regrets. Sure, there were a few things I could have done differently, but I always saw the brighter side. These days; however, I feel like there are definitely alternate paths I could have taken to get me to an even better place than I am now.
  1.  Saving - Why did it take me 30 years from the time I got my first job to realize that I should have been saving and investing a lot more of my money? Here I am, almost 47, with a small nestegg for retirement. This is the stuff no one teaches in school...savings accounts, long-term care insurance, mutual funds...I was too busy spending the money I earned instead of turning it into something that would help me excel.
  2.  Entrepreneurship - Why didn't I ever explore being my own boss before now? I am currently at the point where I am just plain sick & tired of working for someone else. When I was younger, I could have developed some skills, found a mentor and learned about being my own boss. These days, I find myself reading, hoping and praying for some enlightenment, a sign that will point me in the right direction regarding being my own boss. I have to tell you, my technique is not working.
  3.  Body Acceptance - Boy, I should have been more grateful for that body I thought was so gross back in my teens and 20's because damn, it sure could have been a whole lot worse like it is now. I should have exercised more and ate better because now these bad habits I have are even harder to break. And the pounds do not "weight" (you see what I did there?), they just keep coming and get more difficult to lose.
I could probably go on and on about my age. I guess the good news is that I am self-aware. I need to continue to love myself, learn and develop as I have always done. I cannot stop progressing because of my age. I need to continue as if my life depends on it, because it does.

Thanks for reading and please share your thoughts.
