Does Time Fly?

Baby Boomers,

How fast does time move for you?

That is a tough and very complicated question.

It has been a week since my last blog entry.

What happened?

I guess I…

This new serial is about a metaphorical football, and I admit to not being all that sure that this one is properly inflated. There will be some really bad 'plays' called from the sidelines, and perhaps some heroic game-saving plays by a rookie...  or two. The ball is currently around mid-field, and everybody has their eyes on it. The two separate goals are unclear off in the distance, but everyone seems 100% convinced that this ball has been moving the wrong way. An injured player has come…

My mother was the world's best cook. I'm pretty sure that there are many of us who feel that way, and I pity those who do not, or cannot. Before my Mom attained to this very prestigious honor, my paternal Grandmother held the title. When my Dad went overseas during WWII, Mom moved in with her in-laws, and the tutorial began. You can imagine all the psychological tension that such an arrangement entailed for both teacher and student. Further complicating things for…

When Is Your Memory Truly Forgotten?

“I mean, they say you die twice. One time when you stop breathing and a second time, a bit later on, when somebody says your name for the last time.”  — Banksy

While this quote was directly attributed to the graffiti artist Banksy, the sentiment is not his alone and appears all over the place, attributed to…

Living Among Friends (the book)

    I'm in the process of writing a book for Boomers that want to downsize, giving them information and a decision process they might want to follow to make them happier. My focus is on "aging in community", living a shared housing or co-housing where you have an ongoing support system in friends and neighbors.

    If you have a story about downsizing, good or bad, or if you are a Boomer considering downsizing, I'd live to have your input.

    If you have questions about…

A Key to Success – Mastery!

“Are you any good at what you do?” This is a question I ask my clients regularly – particularly when they are discouraged or frustrated with the lack of results they are getting.

“What are you doing to master your skills?” This is the next question I ask – not only of my clients, but I ask myself this question on a regular basis, too.

I take great pride in my commitment to professional development and continuous learning. I…

Heart Attack or Magic Beans?

More than once I have stopped by the emergency room fearing I am having a heart attack. Symptoms have included tightness or sharp pains in my chest, shortness of breath, fatigue, dizziness, and/or a pressure sensation in my jaw.

As women, we are told to pay attention to any irregular symptoms like these and get them checked out because heart disease is the number one killer of women and can easily go…

Milestones Are Not Set in Stone

If you've recently celebrated a landmark birthday, you may be thinking about the milestones in your life. Crossing from one personal decade into another is a significant event and takes on a life of its own. Connecting with friends who are also making this transition can help focus on what you've gained over the years – memories, perspective, wisdom – rather than on what you've lost – agility, some energy, your youth!

Even though the signpost for an event may be firmly planted and…

No Need to Hibernate All Winter

Were you too busy on Super Bowl Sunday watching the commercials to notice that groundhog Punxsutawney Phil had emerged from his burrow? He saw his shadow and went back in to hibernate predicting that the blistery winter weather much of the country has been experiencing will last for another six weeks.

For many of us, winter weather does seem to drag on longer than we'd like. And being stuck at home in February and March doesn't usually lend itself to the same kind of staycation…

Are You Lying To Yourself?

Are You Lying To Yourself?

This challenge needs to be explored to achieve authenticity and living your life open, honest and with integrity.

What was YOUR response when you read this article title?  Were you excited about reading more? Were you offended or insulted? Did you become defensive or resistant reading further? Did you consider jumping to something else? And my hunch is many people jumped to something…

Leading in Tough Times!

You really had to be there. In Atlanta – where I was the day it felt like the world was coming to an end. Severe winter weather hit and the city came to a total standstill.

From a Canadian’s perspective, it was no big deal. To the people of Atlanta, it was a living hell for at least 48 hours. I have many stories I can tell – but I am choosing to speak of my experience with 2…
