We Are More Than Our Age

  “When you become comfortable with uncertainty, infinite possibilities open up in your life.” Eckhart Tolle   I love the different responses shared on my survey to know clearly how I can focus and help support you to live full out whether you are in your 60s, 70s, 80s or beyond.   Nearly 80% said you “didn’t know how to get started doing what you love” for these next decades. I want to reassure you, whatever you want you can have. And, I can help spark some ideas, help Read More

What's Important To You In These Next Decades Of Life?

  Looking at the results of my survey, it was great to see that you want to live life fully. You want to do something meaningful, exercise and be healthy, spend time with family, travel and earn more income.   I love this because this is helping my crusade of championing new models of aging. Often when our parents retired that meant of life of being sedentary. Which we know today leads to a less healthy life.   Today people are living longer, so the need IS to know how to Read More

What is Your Heart and Soul Calling You To Do In Retirement?

  “The achievement of anything that you desire must be considered success, whether it is a trophy or money or relationships or things. But if you will let your standard of success be your achievement of joy—everything else will fall easily into place. For in the finding of joy, you are finding vibrational alignment with the resources of the Universe.” Abraham   Retirement allows you to go deeper and search your soul for what you want to do or would love to do, but for some reason Read More

How Are You Choosing To Master the Emotional Challenges of Loss?

  Life is full of losses - empty nesters, ending of a career to retirement or losing loved ones.   It’s important to notice how you are experiencing these situations. Celebration or Remorse?   They can take you down if you allow them too.   There are stages of grief that you will experience. Feel the pain, the sadness, and your loss. These people mattered to you. Feel the gratitude, love, and memories. You decide the emotions you want to experience.   But Read More

Have You Been Too Busy To Discover Your Real Purpose?

  I’m over the top excited about a possibility that could make a huge difference in your life and mine.   As Deepak Chopra shared in this recent 21-day meditation, Desire and Destiny, “Joy is your highest purpose.”   As I reflect upon that thought, I wonder how many people could live a better life if more of their thoughts and beliefs would match joy.   It’s exciting. Maybe a crusade is needed.   Knowing that your thoughts create your reality, look at Read More

The Power To Choose

  I hear too many people complaining about the circumstances surrounding their lives. Most people want more peace and joy because life has become too busy, too stressful and too negative.   Note that whenever there is a gap between what you are capable of being and what you are doing at any point, you will experience discontent, anxiety and depression. Life has a way of getting your attention. Use it to get you back on course to a more loving, peaceful life.   At Read More

Do You Appreciate or Expect?

  You hold the key to happiness in your life. A lot of it has to do with your expectations.   What are your expecting from your partner, employer, or neighbors? Even yourself?   Expectations can lead to great disappointment. Especially when you have never communicated to the other people those expectations.   The sad part is that I never realized I was supposed to share that information. I just thought they knew what I expected. How crazy is that? I Read More

How Willing Are You To Be Yourself?

  Dying people wish to live fully as possible in their final time.   Rather than wait till your last days, begin letting yourself live each day now.   When you come to a fork in the road, you can decide to stay in the familiar territory and die more each day. Or, you can choose a path aligned with your passions, values and talents which allow you to be more alive and awake to who you are.   Be open to what messages God is sending your way. When life is Read More

Becoming Conscious of Your Physiology

  “Stress is the #1 epidemic in our world today,” says Deepak Chopra. Stress causes inflammation, heart attacks, and strokes. Today it is associated with the huge gain in auto-immune diseases.   On a scale of 1-10, where would you say you are with feeling stressed? Is most of your stress from time, work, or expectations? Where do you feel it in your body?   You know you are in trouble if stress is outweighing your vitality.   Life is meant to be Read More
