Power is in the Now!
A Note From Karen
We were told never to trust anyone over 30!
If fifty is the new turning point, then what is 60+?
|Will you still need me
Will you still feed me
When I’m sixty-four?
|~Beatles: When I’m 64
|10,000 Americans turn 60 each day.
I’ve officially moved from being a “Happy Boomer” (age 50-59) to “Liberated” (age 60-74). Funny, I thought I always was liberated!:)
Being in the senior class was always a goal achieved. So I didn’t think I’d resist this new mantle of “Senior” as much as I have. I’ve been teaching about conscious aging and midlife for many years, yet I find myself in overload sorting through a deluge of Medicare offerings. I’d much prefer to explore LinkedIn or Twitter.
Like so many of us right now, our family’s future is morphing rapid-fire. So we decided to stay close to home to celebrate my 65th. Considering we are all being bombarded with “doom & gloom” messages, my birthday was a great reason to party hard. Catching up. Telling stories. Just being and having fun. more...
Should I Stay or Should I Go?
Darling you got to let me know
Should I stay or should I go?
If you say that you are mine
I’ll be here till the end of time
So you got to let me know
Should I stay or should I go?
~The Clash: Should I Stay Or Should I Go?
As the future gets closer, I’m accepting the fact that my old future doesn't work anymore. So to hell with that future. What about now? The work of midlife begins with this question.
But it doesn’t stop here. Each of us will confront this question several times in the years ahead.
Which is why Power is in the Now! We can harvest opportunity from crisis, but first we have to take a step back and do some ruthless soul-searching: How did this happen? How did I get here? Where am I headed and is it still where I want to end up? Doing so will engage us from the depths as it takes courage and demands transparency. It’s the only way to regain our own audacity of hope. more...
For those of us seeking the secrets to being forever young and rockin’ into your later years--I highly recommend a film called – Young At Heart -- it’ll make you laugh while bringing tears to your eyes.
Meaning, a recent film release by Wayne Dyer brings us back to our spiritual center as we journey to our own true north in mid life.
In the March 13th issue of The Week, I was blown away by an article entitled: Wine, women - and cancer“ which described the findings of a “…new Oxford University study of 1.3 million British women which found that even moderate intake of wine, beer, or any kind of alcohol significantly increased their likelihood of getting breast, liver and colon cancer. “ So much for a daily clicking of wine glasses with the guys to ensure cardiovascular health.
