It may be true that you don’t need to know how to do your shopping online to be happy. And it’s safe to say that brick and mortar stores won’t all have disappeared in our lifetime.

According to Lisa Copeland, dating after 50 is different than dating at any other point in our lives. When we are younger, we can afford to sit back and let men come to us. But, as we get a little older, Lisa encourages us to take control and not be afraid to strike up a conversation with men.
Is sex after 60 really different for man and women? This is the question that I asked senior dating coach, Lisa Copeland, in a recent interview.
When it comes to dating over 60, have you ever thought about how myths about aging might be holding you back? For example, one of the biggest stereotypes is that the older you get the less interested you should be in sex. What rubbish!

Dark clouds hung over the North Sea. As heavy waves crashed against the hull of her ship, the explorer huddled under a blanket, watching the cold rain fall in sheets outside her window. Lighting flashed and the adventurer thought of all of the people who had come to this remote part of the Earth before her. Many of them had never returned. Thunder rolled over the ship and her heart skipped a beat. It was going to be a long night.

Realizing that you haven’t saved enough for retirement is one of the worst experiences in the world. You worry about how you will support yourself in retirement.

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do
With your one wild and precious life?”
– Mary Oliver, The Summer Day
Mary Oliver’s quote was like a slap in the face – gentle, but insistent. It was the third time I’d seen that quote in the last two weeks. I wondered, “What’s going on here? What am I missing?”
Are you a worrier? There are a lot of us about. Perhaps especially as we get older. Personally, I’ve been a worrier all my life. There is so much to worry about!
I love the power of words and how you can re-arrange them in such a way to create impact. But how do you do that when meeting people?
