Debbie On Turning 60 – Reflections on Riding the Waves of Life – Women Living Well After 50

Another new experience!

I was recently a guest on my friend Sue’s podcast, ‘Conversations with Women Living Well After 50’, – a new experience to tick off before I turn 60 next month.

From Sue’s post: We all have a story to tell.  Have you ever thought of writing your life story or even what has happened over the last decade.  My guest today, is my very good friend, Debbie Harris award winning blogger of Deb’s World.  Deb is coming up to a milestone birthday and has been in a reflective mood and has written a timeline of her life experiences and especially over the last decade.

I’d love for you to read Sue’s post with links to our chat on YouTube and the Podcast –

Debbie on Turning 60 – Reflections on Riding the Waves of Life

On YouTube:

Thanks for having me as a guest Sue, it was great chatting with you. And I must say it wasn’t as bad as I had thought – I was more nervous about watching it back than actually recording our interview – you made it very easy!

The Women Living Well After 50 Podcast can be heard here.

Sue and I have met up quite a few times in person, despite living in different states of Australia. We met through blogging and are now firm friends!

Sue was featured here on my blog a few years ago and another guest post she wrote for me can be found here – Sue’s Favourite Seasons.

Do you listen to many podcasts? What’s your favourite ones to listen to? I’m always on the lookout for more to add to my collection.

I like that Sue always has interesting guests who are relatable to this stage of our lives and I enjoy hearing their stories. Everyone has a story to tell!

I hope you enjoy my story too, I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Everyone has a story to tell!

She now spends her time reading, blogging, riding her ebike and travelling. Deb was awarded a Bravery Award from the Queen when she was 17 after a tragic accident – a definite life changing moment! She is married with 3 grown-up daughters & has 4 grandchildren. She never imagined being Granny Debs would bring so much joy to her life! You can read more of Deb’s story here

  1. Welcome to the 60s. I’ll be 62 in a couple of months. Other than the mystery aches and pains that appear from nowhere, life is pretty great. I knocked off quite a few things from my Bucket List in the last two years. Go for it while you still can, Debbie.

  2. Great post Debbie, really interesting reading your story again. 60 isn’t a big deal though is it? Just a number that shouldn’t define us at all. Hope so as we are both 60 next summer.

  3. Love the idea of the timeline of our lives. For ourselves and for our loved ones. I think my girls would enjoy reading it and sharing it with my granddarlings down the road.
    It was great fun to hear both of you together. Cute that you both have Australian accents but that they are different.
    You girls are among my favorite women. Thank you for sharing your wisdom with us.

  4. Great to hear you Deb! First time at think. Congratulations on your interview and I think Sue is doing a great job highlighting women with such interesting stories to share. This time last year as was about to turn 70 and decided to go with it..enjoy the build up, have a few special memories made with get togethers. I remember my ‘funny’ husband who is 9 months older saying “life goes downhill at 70”. I actually wouldn’t believe him but with the subsequent year of surgeries ….maybe he was right! Seriously you already have a youthful disposition so 60 will be a breeze! Denyse

    1. Isn’t it ‘odd’ when we actually hear people who we’ve only ever read their words before? Sue is doing a fabulous job of sharing stories from women who have interesting, helpful and inspiring lives. But I feel everyone has a story to tell! This year will be different to what I was expecting given the situation in the world but it will still be a special day I’m sure. Thanks for that lovely comment, a youthful disposition’, I think I might use that from now on!! I’m not particularly worried about the number but it has made me pause for a minute of two!
