Live A Life of No Regrets

Blog written on March 1, 2019 by Diane Patterson

Hi everyone.  Thank you for stopping by my blog.  I have a confession to make.  This is my first blog EVER.  So bear with me.  This is one of those things I didn’t think I would ever do. That is really what this blog is about.

 Now that you are 50-something, what are you going to try you have never tried before?

  Is there something hidden in the back of your brain, just bouncing around, wondering when you are going to let it come out to play.

It is scary..I get it.  I am where you are. I am a 54-year-old woman trying things for the first time, making mistakes, and wondering what in the world I’m getting myself into.  You know what keeps me going?

I want to live a life of NO REGRETS.

Let’s make this journey together. Me and you.  I need your encouragement and I will offer you encouragement along your path.  On this blog, I will post encouraging words, ideas for re-creating yourself or just enhancing the “you” you already are. I will include places to go that will bring peace and the ‘Power of Awe’ into your life.  Whether you are married, single or somewhere in-between, have kids at home or you are an empty-nester, wherever you are in life there is always something.  Something you want to say, do or be.

SAY IT!     DO IT!   BE IT!


I am 54 years-old and the mother of three grown children. In the last five years, I left a profession I was in for over 20 years, I moved to a new city, re-married, went back to school to discover a new profession, and became a grandma for the first time. I also am pursuing my passion for writing. I am writing a children's picture book and I started my first blog ever. For years I was afraid of change but I now I embrace it

  1. You had me interested cousin .. you did a great job .. Being 50 and starting over .. and just figuring out me is so where I’m at right now..


  2. I will definitely always be your biggest fan! The other day I called you in tears because I was afraid of changing careers myself, as a 30 something year old. And right after I told you that you said “Jasmine if you are scared think about how I feel. You dont have to have anything figured out. Life is about the journey”! Now I repeat those words to my self every day. You are my biggest inspiration! I’m so proud of you. I look forward to reading more.
    Love your biggest fan and favorite daughter❤❤


  3. So happy for you, Diane!! You have been an inspiration to me since the day we became friends doing ministry on the streets in L. A. Thank you for being a sister in Christ. Phillipians 4:13…”I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.” This is absolute truth, no matter what our age! You are in my prayers…


    1. Thank you Frances. My focus audience is just like us..women in their fifties who find themselves for whatever reason starting over in some area of their lives. Thank you for your support. I hope you will follow my blog. I would appreciate your input.
