So many people go through life trying to “find themselves.” We read self-help books, hire career counselors, take trips to think about our life, write in diaries and, for the most part, we end up where we started.
Guest Post by Wendy Walleigh | After a long but profitable career in high tech marketing and sales, I wanted to have more impact on people’s lives while still using the skills, knowledge and experience I had acquired at work. But how to reinvent myself?
Let’s be honest. By the time we reach our 50s and 60s most of us have a few extra pounds tucked away for a rainy day. Unfortunately, in a world filled with a Krispy Kreme Doughnuts store on every corner, having a calorie packed “rainy day fund” is about as useful as having a refrigerator at the North Pole.
Many years ago, I had a good friend who had just gone through a very difficult loss and was overwhelmed with sadness. All I could do for the first few weeks was sit with her while she cried. Over time, she revealed the depth of her guilt and sadness and I realized that it was going to take her a long time to heal.

The reason that I was always a bit battered was that I refused to accept my physical boundaries. I loved to try new things and when I failed I just dusted myself off and tried again. Then I grew up…
True love. It’s an experience that most women have been searching for all their lives. Perhaps you are one of the lucky few who found their soul mate early in life – and held on to them. But, if you are like most women, your romantic history is more complicated. By the time we reach our 60s, most of us have experienced romantic highs and devastating lows. Many of us have suffered broken trust, divorce and lost. Is it any wonder that most women our age are reluctant to try “dating” again?
I was recently scanning through my 600 Facebook friends when I realized that less than 10% of them regularly interact with my posts or engage in conversations with me. In total, perhaps only 10-15 people regularly engage in dialogues that demonstrate a deep and meaningful interest in my life, work and passions. I’m not criticizing, by the way. I know how busy life can get. But, it’s still interesting how much we have come to rely on surface-level interactions with the people we care about.
