Hi, I'm Hayley, the creator of The Next New Thing (to Me). This is a website where I share my misadventures and challenges as a 50-something woman who is embracing this new season of life, after having been a book writer for almost 30 years, I’m trying something new with this short form style!

I've always been curious and eager to learn new things, but I never had enough time or energy to pursue them when I was busy raising my daughter and working as a writer. Now that I'm over 55, I find that I’m just starting to be ready to grow. Maybe I was too busy before, but suddenly it’s like I’m a kid again and the world is open before me and I want to explore it. Much of the world I’m exploring has to do with faith and relationships. Who I am in regards to loving God and loving others.

The Next New Thing (to Me) is my way of documenting and sharing my new thoughts and experiences with you. I hope to inspire you to embrace change no matter what your age. You're never too old to learn something new! And, you’re most definitely never too old to grow. What’s that they say, if you aren’t growing then you’re dying?

By subscribing, you'll get articles about my latest musings, challenges, achievements and failures. You'll also get access to my latest book projects. And, I'll share some of the resources and tools that I use to learn and grow.

I'm always open to suggestions and feedback, so feel free to leave a comment or contact me anytime. I'd love to hear from you and learn about your next new thing!
