If your clothes could speak, what message would they be sending the world? Hopefully it’s something positive, like:
“Take me seriously. I’m a force to be reckoned with.”
“I love life and live every day to its fullest.”
Jewellery, in all its forms tells the story of our life. Whether we choose a necklace or a bracelet, they all tell people more about who we are, and they remind us of places and people, events and special things.
You know it when it happens because you start to look washed out and tired – your hair color isn’t working. To say it isn’t flattering is probably an understatement. Are the things you’re doing to hide the grey hairs aging you? That’s not the way it’s supposed to be.
Plus-sized women often deal with a barrage of unsolicited advice. Opinions on what to wear, what not to wear, the right colors, the wrong colors, unacceptable styles and cuts, etc. Even when those suggestions come with the best intentions, they can be downright insulting.

Type 2 diabetes is on the rise. The International Diabetes Federation estimates that 1 in 11 (425 million) adults worldwide have diabetes. They also say that 1 in 2 adults with diabetes are undiagnosed (212 million).
This article complements a previous one I recently wrote where we discussed the definition of frailty, how it affects us as we age and the very important symptom of muscle mass loss.
Do you yearn for more physical activity in your life – perhaps a sport from your youth? You may have a secret passion for something you have not yet tried. We still have opportunities, so why not explore them?

I’ve talked to lots of women over 60 and almost always the biggest fear they share with me is the thought of being alone forever.
In their mind, they’re not sure a man will want them at this age so when a good-looking man starts paying attention to them online, they feel special, desired and wanted.
I write about senior dating, coach women over 60 in dating and dated online until I met my partner four years ago. Nancy was 63. I was 67.
When it comes to dating after 60, it often feels like women face a choice between intimacy and independence. But, is this a fair assessment?
Certainly, many of the women in the Sixty and Me community have pushed back whenever I have raised this topic. Let’s explore this together.
We all want love in our lives, no matter what age we are! But maintaining healthy relationships – romantic and otherwise – becomes even more important in our 50s, 60s and beyond.
So, how do you put yourself out there and make new connections in the over-50 dating scene?

We take vacations to relax, get away from our everyday stress and reconnect with friends and loved ones. But sometimes the planning and prep for a vacation can feel like more work than it’s worth.
If you haven’t already, you should definitely visit Ireland. But prepare yourself in advance, you just may have too much ‘craic’ and you may just not want to leave.
We had so much fun in Ireland that Hurricane Ophelia must have read our minds and delayed our departure for a day. We did not complain too much at all.
Fall in Santa Fe is golden. Shimmering cottonwood trees take over the city, their leaves almost molten in beautiful shades of yellow and gold.

Imagine how many candidates are reviewed by recruiters and hiring managers annually. Now, imagine how many of them bring their biggest personality quirks and issues into the room. This happens at the resume and cover letter stage and most often in the interview meeting, if you got one.
Now that you have decided to start your little business selling your products, it is time to address how you are going to set up your marketing plan. Up till now, you have been doing your hobby for fun and perhaps selling a few items/services here and there.
When our careers are in full swing, we don’t think about the importance of jobs for retirees. Either we assume that we will save enough money to live in comfort in the “best years of our lives” or we look forward to enjoying our freedom in retirement, without working, even if it means cutting back on luxuries.
Why is it that time seems to fly now that we’re 60 or 70 or 80? I’m often amazed when a wedding, the death of friend or a move to a new city was 20 or 30 years ago. Heavens, it’s already 2018! What happened to 2017?

Over the past 10+ years, Facebook has grown to over two billion active monthly users. It provides a great way to stay connected with family and friends, old and new, but it also has a lot of noise that can drive you crazy.
One easy step to avoid disappointment in your retirement expectations is to complete a simple but effective exercise I developed. All you need is a pen and paper. Answer the following questions, and if you have a significant other, have them also create his or her own responses:
It was 1977, in Winter Haven, Florida, my home town. My parents had sold our farm and were now living in a fifth-wheel camper, parked in a campground. Next to us was a golf course.
I have just discovered an app to make me look smarter. It’s called Grammarly and it’s awesome. Why? Because it makes me look smarter and more accurate than I really am. Gotta love that, right?

Do you feel like you need a life-lift? Do you think that if a few things in your life would change you’d face each day with more hope and joy?
This week I was racing to finish my novel, a thriller that takes place in Cuba, and it struck me that completing this manuscript, which has held my devotion for two years, was an act of courage.
“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!
