I have something to confess: I never liked studying history in school.
I think the reason is the way it was taught. We had to memorize the dates when popes and monarchs reigned, presidents and prime ministers served in office, significant battles were fought in major wars, and so forth. We never learned about what life was like for the people living then. We never read their stories.
I’m sure most every woman reading this article has some sort of pearl jewelry by this time in her life. It seems like many of us have been gifted the items or they’ve been handed down through the generations.
And while we have these items, I have to ask, how much do you wear them?
Is your closet jam-packed with clothing you no longer wear? Would you like to try a new look, improve your image or gain more confidence? What about your hairstyle? Do you wear it the same way all the time because you don’t know what to do with it?
Granted, times, opportunities, healthcare and attitudes are different from when our mothers were in their 60s, resulting in a currently “smarter” generation when it comes to information access.

With the rest of the world waiting to be explored, why should you return to a place you have already visited?
There are three reasons, I believe, to go back to an amazing destination.
Most women in our community travel to relax, rewind and rejuvenate.
In the west, we live hectic lives and often feel stressed and over committed. Some of us – present company included – spend too much time online. Others live in busy towns and cities, where we practice unhealthy eating habits and live with toxic air.
When it comes to assessing my favorite massage experience in Bali, I have to admit it’s a bit like asking me to choose my favorite child.

You are probably wondering, “What the heck are weak ties and how can they help me rejuvenate my career?” Most of us who are in the second half of life have had a hiccup or two within our careers sometime during the last 15 years. That includes me.
A few weeks ago, I asked the women in our community how they make money in retirement. Their answers were amazing and showed just how creative our generation has become when it comes to supplementing our income in the best years of our lives.
So, today, I’d like to share 60 creative ways that we have found to make money in retirement. I hope that you find them useful.
Many people hope to own their own business, but very few do. In addition, women around the world are hesitant to become entrepreneurs because they feel they lack confidence and resources.
We all have chromosomes (DNA) that are encoded with our genes in every cell in our body. There are 22 pairs of chromosomes that determine everything from the color of our hair and eyes to our ancestry and mental abilities.

It took me 50 years to discover the power of a childhood friend. It all started when I was shipped off to sleep away camp in the summer of 1969 and met Betsy Brown. By 1975 we were already too old for camp.
As women who grew up in the 1960s, dance has been a part of our lives since the very beginning. But, if I’m right, most of us haven’t had a chance to see our favorite 1960s dances performed – let alone put on our dancing shoes and try them ourselves – for many years.
Posse: a group of people who have a common characteristic, occupation or purpose.
Post holidays is a good time to reassess who you spend your time with. Think about it as you look back at the past six weeks.
Do you feel you have a book in you? Have you been secretly harbouring the dream of writing it down one day?

I’m always sure the grass is greener on the other side. The person sitting next to me got the bigger portion. My friend learned about investing, while I didn’t. The girls in high school knew how to get a prom date. People stay happily married. Everyone else knows something I don’t.
A few years ago, an older, well-dressed woman walked into my therapy office. She seemed agitated. Nervously, she told me that she was unable to eat or sleep because she was troubled by sexual fantasies about her best friend’s husband.
As the end of the year approaches, I begin to putter around in closets and cabinets, donating those things that I am not using. I enjoy simplicity and orderliness.
