Years ago, there was a guy who lived at a halfway house down the street from a friend of mine. He had some quirky habits but was known to be a very cheerful character.

If you’re the one person on the planet who’s not on Facebook, congrats.
You’ve saved yourself from debilitating bouts of FOMO (fear of missing out) due to viewing travel photos from exotic locales, idealistic visits with perfectly well-behaved grandchildren and other fairy tale visions suitable for a Disney movie.
I received this email the other day from a friend who is five years past her cancer experience.
“I’ve been thinking of you as you move in to the next stage of your cancer journey. I remember having very mixed feelings at each stage – I was somewhat worried/scared as the treatments lessened.”
Tennis is a complicated, beautiful game where there are many skills to master – and strategies to learn. But it also acts as a mirror, illuminating our relationship with ourselves and others, and presents wonderful opportunities to practice mindfulness.
Many people have trouble swapping unhealthy habits for healthy ones. It may be easy to start strong then fade away and eventually call it a failure. Or maybe it’s hard to even get started.

“Family members, friends, and neighbors devote countless hours to providing care to their relatives or loved ones. During National Family Caregivers Month, we recognize and thank the humble heroes who do so much to keep our families and communities strong.” – President Barack Obama, NFC Month Proclamation 2012.
Asking a frequent traveler to pick the best cruise line in the world is like asking a mom to choose between her children. They’re all amazing! Besides, how can you really compare the various options?
Is the relaxed pace of a river cruise really comparable to the hustle and bustle of a 6000-passenger mega-ship, with casinos, movie theaters and climbing walls? Doesn’t it simply depend on the type of experience that you are looking for?

Have you ever noticed how difficult it is to change other people? This is true even in loving relationships, where both people have an incentive to listen and respond to their partner’s needs.
It is especially true for our friends and acquaintances who, while they may care for us, are mostly interested in getting the most from their own lives.
While it may not seem so out of the ordinary to daydream about getting together with your three closest friends and enjoying a spot of tea and some lively conversation in the English countryside, the thought of watching four other women do the same thing seems much less appealing.
Yesterday was my last day of ‘official’ employment! I am now entering the first stage of retirement, or some might say, the “twilight zone.”
I opened up my computer and found that my company email had been blocked, my calendar had changed, and all contacts had been erased. But I also had an outpouring of well-wishes on my Facebook page that was very encouraging.
I’m somewhat skeptical of the whole concept of “retirement.” I’ve seen far too many cases of people building up retirement as the “ultimate destination,” only to find themselves feeling lost, socially isolated and financially stretched when they finally get there.

Everything in our life changes as we age and start on the journey of our last chapter in life. We have to pay more attention to what we eat, our exercise, our daily life and even our thoughts.
Many women say they feel invisible as they age. Feeling invisible when you want to be noticed and acknowledged is one side of the coin. Other women, though, feel relief when mid-life attracts less unwelcome attention.
