Summary
"By age 50, Maria Leonard Olsen had drunk her way out of her 25-year marriage. She had, against advice, put all her eggs in the motherhood basket, willfully derailing her successful law career. As teenagers, her precious children did not need her in the hands-on way they previously had. She was depressed and stuck. So when she turned 50, her gift to herself was to go on a crusade to make the most of whatever time she had left. She set out to do 50 new things that were significant, at least to her. The list spanned physical challenges, adventure travel, and lifestyle changes. Each taught her something about herself and about how she wanted to lead the next years of her life. This book follows the work she and shows readers how to make their own action lists-- whether it be joining a knitting club or hiking the Himalayas, every item has significance for each individual and will add spice to a life that may feel repetitive, insignificant, inauthentic, or just plain boring"--Page 4 of cover
