Pamela Stephenson, becoming the person she used to be through Strictly

Article by Fabafterfifty

Who could fail to be moved by Billy Connolly’s tribute to his wife, Pamela Stephenson yesterday, as wished her well in the tonight’s Strictly Come Dancing final.

There wasn’t a dry eye in the house as Billy said that at first he thought Pamela was:  ‘crazy’ to participate; then amazed by her determination and the hours of practice; moved when he saw her dance ballroom; and finally emotional as he said that through Strictly, his’ Pamsy’ had become the person he had first met all those years ago on Not the Nine O’Clock news.

We all wish Pamela well in tonight’s final, but at the same time it has also made me think about what I project I could pursue, outside of my own comfort zone, in my own life to push my own boundaries and create that vibrancy and sense of achievement that Pamela has so clearly achieved. Would my own husband ever say that I had the ‘essence’ of the woman he had first met?

In part, Pamela’s journey through Strictly has captured the essence of what Fabafterfifty is all about. Following our dreams, not as wife, mother or grandmother, but proving to ourselves that we can achieve and grow in our own right.

We all love ‘Supergran’  for what she is showing us we can achieve, and showing us that we re-engage with the person we always knew we should be.  I’m not at all surprised that Billy is proud and just a little emotional.
