Book Review – Positive Aging

Fellow blogger Kathy Gottberg’s book Positive Aging (Amazon link here) is a wonderful reiteration of the importance of being positive about aging via a combination of research background and some practical how-to’s.  If you read her wonderful blog (link here), you'll be familiar with many of these concepts, but reiteration is helpful, especially for a formally … Continue reading Book Review – Positive Aging

Continuing my Spirituality Exploration

Part of my big things this year was to explore spirituality. Spirituality means different things to different people. Because of my upbringing, I do associate spirituality with observing the rituals of a religious service, reading religious texts, and prayer.

In fact, … Continue reading Am I a Modern Day Renaissance Woman?

My Blog Anniversary – A long look back

It’s hard to believe I just passed the 4th anniversary of this blog.   I actually told someone it was the third… and then checked. Nope, I’ve been writing for 4 years! I started when I was “knee-deep” in my own retirement transition, still trying to figure out a vision, a plan, an identity, a new … Continue reading My Blog Anniversary – A long look back
