About

 

Anne Wade I’m delighted you’re here!

Soulmate Dance began as a personal blog, the story of a 50-something woman and a 50-something man meeting, falling in love, and deciding to Skip the Light Fandango together. (It’s never too late for love!)

Blending our stuff – lives, families, furniture, baggage. That can get interesting. Bemused musings about being a bride and a grandma. Weird. And delicious. Staying healthy and fit and coaxing the jiggly bits to behave. Figuring out how our individual definitions of healthy and fit can play together nicely. Being staggered by the beauty of folks dancing (and sometimes tripping) through middle age and beyond – folks who have lived and loved and laughed and cried, who have triumphed and suffered, who have soared and crashed and gotten up to live and love and laugh and cry some more.

And love. Finding love, living love, nurturing love, keeping the love alive. Warts-and-all love -  loving your beloveds, loving your beautiful lived-in body and face, loving your inquisitive and sometimes tangled mind. All of it, fueled by this crazy thing called “soulmates” which is not at all what many of us thought.

The whole thing is definitely a dance of Life, learning to flow together and not step on too many toes, real or metaphorical.

Turns out finding and nurturing love, especially later in life, is a hot topic for many of us.

Anne from Soulmate Dance tells the story of finding her own soulmate.But instead of just looking at the same old questions - where to meet people to date, what to wear, which online dating service to use -  Soulmate Dance is more of a lab to explore the bigger picture which is a better answer to the soulmate question anyway. You see, the secret to finding love is to become the mate you wish to find in ALL aspects of your life. If that sounds like a conundrum and if you want to find out what it means, you’ll just have to hang out with us. (We'll also be talking about the fact and fiction of having to love yourself first which can feel way too daunting.)

There’s no telling what you might find here – whatever is tickling my fancy on any given day which seems to be the same things a lot of prime-of-lifers think about. Anything from love to continuing to grow personally, health, wellness, travel, hobbies, aging parents, cool stuff for the Grand-Doodles, retirement, books, and music. Our generation has the best playlist. It’s always an adventure and a surprise.

Here’s a few topics you can definitely expect:

Finding new love, or reigniting and nurturing the love you have.

Happy, healthy relationships with each other and our children, grandchildren, aging parents, dear friends, in-laws, ex-laws, and even outlaws. Every circle can use a few renegades to liven things up.

Health, wellness, fitness, beauty, and fashion. Looking and feeling good, whatever that means to you.

Travel of all kinds – solo, group, couples, tour groups, cruises. Together, hubby and I especially love road trips. Before meeting Steve, I carried my passport and a toothbrush in my purse “just in case.”

Money, retirement, encore careers, supplementing income, or managing what you have so you can master the fine art of piddling.

And speaking of piddling, let's talk about hobbies, reading, movies, or napping in the hammock out by the pond. These are important.

And last, but far from least, is our mindset. Feeding ourselves big doses of mindfulness, happiness, gratitude, giving back, and reinvention. Respecting the past without getting stuck. Kicking stress and fear to the curb.

Just so you know, I’m no guru or purist. Being an 80/20 kind of gal suits me just fine. That 20 percent fudge factor is there for two very important reasons: treating myself and forgiving myself.

If you’re feeling young at heart (or you’d like to), this is the place for you. Jump on the “We’re growing older, but not old” bandwagon with me. The soundtrack is great, the company is outstanding, and the adventures are all around us

You're not too old and it's never too late!

Love is looking for you. Are you ready to be found?

I'm growing older but not up
My metabolic rate is pleasantly stuck
So let the winds of change blow over my head
I'd rather die while I'm living than live while I'm dead
