Retirement in a Social Wilderness

Posted by [email protected] on November 10, 2020 at 9:30 PM Comments comments (0)

As a retiree, there’s something that has been bothering me and I would like to figure it out.

Perhaps it’s a simple matter to make some decisions. Perhaps not.

One woman put it this way: “Retirement is a perfect occasion worth celebrating. It is one s...

 The onset of a woman’s midlife crisis can present a challenge. Along with menopause and inevitable changes in family dynamics, it’s another lesson in change for women.

Moving On

Many people think there is nothing they can do about aging, although this isn’t true, unless you want it to be that way! I would rather like to think about the plusses that being a senior has to offer.

 

One of the most obviously important life lessons we've heard from time to time, is that the past is gone forever, and the future will never be here. Rather, the present is the only moment where we get ...

Living Optimally in Retirement

Posted by [email protected] on October 30, 2020 at 12:00 AM Comments comments (0)

 

I wonder…is normal acceptable?


It is, during this extremely difficult time and during the unbelieably horrendous virus, that I must challenge on how to optimally live among some of the goals that haven’t yet been realized.


The blessing of retirement is the realization that life is not over but beginning in a whole new way, as we adjust to what we've already known.

Re-Inventiveness in Retirement

Can you redefine "aging" and “senior” without getting upset that each day makes you older than the day before? It’s all about staying in that right psychological, physical and emotional state that allows for peak levels of happiness. One requirement is to become mentally tough and shift away from seeing aging as a threat.

For example, would you like to think that (all) older people are frail, forgetf...

Change Your Closet Change Your Life

It tickles me to think that I have several outfits hanging dull in my closet, unused for whatever reason. They aren’t going anywhere because I haven’t worn them anywhere. I guess I suffer from the term, “wardrobe clutter”.

 

Perhaps this is because making a choice in what to wear can be overwhelming. For example, It is a fact that women wear twenty percent of their clothes eighty perc...
