Glad to have your voice

Dear Mellbell3,

I am so glad you have added your voice to the World Pulse community of women around the world (from more than 190 countries!)

I just joined World Pulse myself this week, and am excited to be a part of it. There is so much to learn and be inspired by on the website.

Like you, I have reached midlife and am weighing how to best use my passions, skills and ideals in the second half of my life (or last two-thirds of my life....let's me optimistic! :) I am encouraged by your altruism--your wish to improve the lives of women is inspiring and I thank you for your vision!

I am so curious about your experience as an American woman/mother living in Beijing. I lived in South Korea for several months in the 1990s and it was a life-altering experience--that was before I had kids. I look forward to hearing more from you in the days ahead. Be sure to check out the World Pulse "Getting Started" guide to learn more about networking in our community:

Thank you for sharing a bit of yourself with us. Please continue to write! I wish you love, health, happiness!
