Living For The Future
I feel sorry for Joe Biden. He is constantly nagged about his age, and I get it. Yes, he shows signs of senility, but his chronological age is not responsible for his mental decline. If that were true, all of us who have reached and passed age 80 should be in the same deplorable condition. However, your age does have some value that doesn't relate to your mental or … [Read more...] about Living For The Future
Stop Anticipating Your Death!
A friend and brilliant writer publishes well-documented articles about current events. She said this in a recent newsletter: "Time is also not a friend of people my age. I'll be 73 at the end of June, so I don't have many years left. . . " I guess she has a direct pipeline to the intention of God or the Grim Reaper. Anyone at age 73 who assumes an early demise because … [Read more...] about Stop Anticipating Your Death!
“Today’s Special Offer Will Not Last”
I despise 99% of everything on television today. Yet, I watch, not frequently, but I do. I admit to it. I can't seem to quit.
Why? I've found that it is more than habit. Television is telling us what's coming. It is an eye to a dystopian future.
Decades ago, my dad called it the "boob tube," We laughed as a family, but we watched. Not frequently, but … [Read more...] about “Today’s Special Offer Will Not Last”
We Have More Important Issues To Complain About — Just Ask Me
As we walk, stomp, step, glide, and stride into 2023, we must not lose our resolve to utilize and share any resources that advocate intentional and informed ways of aging. Unfortunately, rather than approaching our latter years in a willy-nilly, "catch as catch can" fashion leaves us open to those age genies who would like to dictate when, where and how we … [Read more...] about We Have More Important Issues To Complain About — Just Ask Me
5 Step Formula to Make Anything Happen
When I was working and coaching people on yearly business planning, it was so daunting to look at a 12-month plan and even more daunting to imagine sticking to it. People would get excited about the project, and at the same time, they wanted to give up because imagining the result in 365 days was overwhelming.
One of my mentors shared with me the "90-Hustle". That … [Read more...] about 5 Step Formula to Make Anything Happen
The Angst And Agony Of Disobeying Society’s Age Rules
Several years ago, my daughter told me that my grandson "Bill" had a girlfriend," Mary," but he was reluctant to tell me about it because Mary was older than he was. Bill was aware that in our unyielding horse and buggy culture, a man is supposed to be older than a woman. Isn't it amazing that in our "anything goes" world, we still give chronological age the power to rule … [Read more...] about The Angst And Agony Of Disobeying Society’s Age Rules

Stress and Our Stressed-Out Endocrine System
How many times do we hear we shouldn't be so stressed out? We should be in the constant namaste state of chill. Easier said than done, right? But unfortunately, we live in a fast-paced world where everything we do stresses us out. Even the morning alarm puts us in a stressful state.
What does all this stress do to our bodies? Where should I start? Let's start with … [Read more...] about Stress and Our Stressed-Out Endocrine System
Happy Thoughts From The Birthday Girl
On the occasion of my seventy-fifth birthday, I was able to do a lot of reflecting and begin my celebration with much less regret than usual. I had the opportunity to speak with some of my children, open a variety (87 to be exact) of greeting cards (some with special $urprises inside, and take in all the beautiful presents like that huge TV, new stand for it and the recliner … [Read more...] about Happy Thoughts From The Birthday Girl
