My life’s philosophy is to help others in whatever small way I can. About a year ago I came up with the concept of ‘Midlife Monday’ for my Instagram account as a way of reaching midlifers. Initially quite reluctant to launch it for fear of no one paying a blind bit of attention, I eventually did.

Much to my great delight, Midlife Monday has been a success judging from the comments posted and support received.

Every Monday I post thought prompts or bits of advice about life. I am not a trained counsellor or anything such like but you don’t reach Midlife without being able to impart some shared experiences and advice.

Midlife Monday brings me great joy at the start of the week for the simple reason that it’s a means of putting into practice my philosophy of helping others. Happy Monday.
