Volunteer Pen Pals Needed

Posted by [email protected] on September 3, 2020 at 9:25 AM Comments comments (0)

Do you remember what it felt like to be a child at Christmas time? Perhaps this new pen pal project could make this feeling real for a few lonely seniors living in a nearby nursing home.

 

It's really a simple genius idea, as interested WGOG's could easily write and reach out to let that person know they are special. I know I would love to receive a note if cooped up in a nursing home without family or frien...

A Personal Perspective

Posted by [email protected] on August 31, 2020 at 11:30 AM Comments comments (0)

For most of us, what we’ve done to earn a living defines us. But let me ask you if you can redefine "aging" and “senior” and think of retirement as a trip of discovery to determine who you are and who you want to become?


Understandably, it’s how you approach your retirement, how you respond to your retirement, how you behave in retirement, how you handle re...

My Morning Pages

Posted by [email protected] on August 23, 2020 at 12:10 AM Comments comments (0)

Personal satisfaction comes at a premium to me during this time of solitude. I am proud to announce that I have come across a productive way of working on hunches and bits of intuition in one simple morning practice called “my morning pages”. Here, I would like to share a great way to get the day started and will show how easy it can be done. At least, I think so.


Actually, I believe I’m truly trying to show myself a wor...

We walk out of that retirement door and BOOM. What the heck happened? I'd like to help you enjoy those precious few hours of the morning to get closer to what's important to you during your retirement and even make possible changes.

My story is about empowering seniors. Because of Covid 19 and it's restrictions to our well-being and happiness, I have developed a new Morning Make Over program. This will allow for poss...

Are You in a Pandemic Slump?

Posted by [email protected] on August 15, 2020 at 8:20 PM Comments comments (0)

Now that we’re pretty much stuck at home with much all the free time in the world, have managed household chores and taken care of that proverbial junk drawer, there is a creative potential awaiting all of us.


We’ve probably already checked out the photobooks of our family and friends adventures and have either managed time in the garden and have watched the wildlife playing in the trees. Creati...

Transitioning Retirement

Posted by [email protected] on August 11, 2020 at 2:15 PM Comments comments (0)

 “I have had such a full life, 2 marriages, children, grandchildren, several careers and businesses, all on my own terms. I have traveled extensively. I love my life! But lately I have been feeling a bit despondent. I am 67 and fully retired, and life seems to have come to a dead stop. Never have I been without goals or dreams and it's disconcerting. Every day is the same...pleasant, peaceful, no worries or complaints, surro...

Can You Re-Design Your Life During Covid 19?

Posted by [email protected] on August 8, 2020 at 4:45 PM Comments comments (0)

 

Sounds great, but since we live in the real world, can you take charge of your life when you’re already up to your eyeballs with the Covid virus and all its inconveniences?

After all, you can’t meet with friends and family as you have in the past. There’s no church, no volunteer work, no spa or swim in the public pool, no lunch dates, attending sports events or enjoying movies and theatre...

Questions for the Prime Timers

Posted by [email protected] on August 1, 2020 at 9:20 AM Comments comments (0)

It's a lazy afternoon and I simply wanted to express a few thoughts and, hopefully, identify who we are as "prime timers" in this newly coined term for retired folk.


We are women, we nourish, we give life, and are often satisfied, sitting on the sidelines, making sure that those we love are healthy and happy. And that’s ok, as long as we can remember not to stray too far off t...

Live Your life...It's the Only One You've Got!

Posted by [email protected] on July 24, 2020 at 9:30 AM Comments comments (0)

Is the idea of being whole an elusive goal? If this is so, why are we so much at odds with ourselves and why are we haunted by having a so called "unlived life"? Is is because we're cooped up with this virus and can't move about? Perhaps it's because we've become soured by the shoulda-woulda-couldas and now have time to wonder about the way we want life to go.

What Does Freedom Have to Do With Retirement?

Posted by [email protected] on July 19, 2020 at 1:35 PM Comments comments (0)

I need to thank friends who recently responded with thoughts about the best part of retirement. Everyone agreed it was with the feeling of freedom and aliveness which was their number one response.

 

As we have or are about to valiantly move forward and break out of the work cocoon, we will naturally take on new risks to relate and watch our true colors re-appear.
