Leanne ~ cresting the hill of midlife

I blog at https://www.crestingthehill.com.au - There’s so much more to Midlife than having a crisis, or being in menopause, or crying over an empty nest. It’s time to focus on freedom, re-discovery, and becoming the best version of ourselves. So, join me in a journey where we replace Midlife crisis with Midlife connection and contentment..

  • A fellow blogger asked me what advice I'd give my younger self now that I look back on all that my life has encompassed so far. This is nearly 17 year old me on the last day of high school with many decades ahead of her. I was actually quite surprised by the advice that came to mind - it wasn't 'marry a millionaire' or 'get a fantastic career' - it was something completely different. If you're interested, the link to my blog post is below:
