The Inside Story Podcast with April Adams Pertuis

Dec 15, 2021

It’s a big day for me because today, I turn the big FIVE-OH!!

Yes, it’s my 50th birthday and I’m spending part of my day with you because you’ve been a big part of my journey and what I’m grateful for.

And now that it’s here, what does it actually feel like to be 50? How should I approach aging, and handle all the thrills and frills (and body aches and pains!!) that come with it?

Join me today as I share with you:

  • How I’ve come to understand my boundaries and taking time to nourish my mind, body, and spirit
  • What I’m doing to age better in a healthy way while accepting the body I have at 50!
  • The way I’m owning the fact that I have something to say, and why I’m elevating my voice and encouraging other women to do the same
  • How having an attitude of gratitude changes everything 

I’m looking back at the last fifty years with love and gratitude, and I look forward to the next fifty filled with hope that even better days are coming. And like a sunflower, I’m turning my face towards the sun, ready to soak up all the good things this life has to offer.


My Journey with RA is the episode where I share my lifelong battle with rheumatoid arthritis. Listen in as I talk about how I’ve taken a non-traditional route in taking care of health.
