Nothing hurts more than when a relationship has ended, especially when betrayal is involved in some way. When a man has lied to you and betrayed your trust, picking up the pieces and moving forward can feel daunting.
It can take time for people to warm-up during the senior dating cycle. Don’t give up until your gut tells you to or if the thought of kissing the person makes you physically sick.

Rejection at this ripe time in our lives can really stink. There’s no way around it.

What type of traveller are you?
Are you the one that agonises over your travel outfits, pulls out the biggest suitcase, fills it up with all your favourite dresses, tops, trousers, scarves and 20 pairs of shoes for a week’s holiday and then only wears two outfits the whole time?
Sometimes you need a break but don’t have the time or budget for a big trip. Short little getaways can be the perfect solution.
For me, the combination of sun and sand can really set me right in a short amount of time. It makes me feel like I’ve stepped into a tropical paradise even though I may only be a couple of hours from home.
Voted the World’s most liveable city for seven consecutive years, the city of Melbourne is one of our favourite cities to visit.

Historically speaking, your financial adviser’s job has always been to help you reach your financial goals. If you wanted to retire, travel or buy that vacation home, you were only to set your goal, and your adviser would tell you how to get there.
These days, marketing a service is about establishing your presence and building trust on the Internet. In the past, you would demonstrate your product to an audience and they decided whether they wanted to purchase or not. Now there is little face-to-face contact as we cross global borders.
Women over 60 have a strong independent streak. When we were younger, we used the word “freedom” carelessly. In many ways, it defined our lifestyle. We were free to wear bohemian clothing, free to travel where the wind took us and free to choose unconventional lifestyles.
I’m not sure why, but, it seems like older adults are routinely the target for scams of all kinds. Maybe criminals have simply fallen for the same aging stereotypes as everyone else and believe that we are easy targets. Or, perhaps they rightly assume that, statistically at least, we have more money to spend.

There’s a saying I’d like to explore with you: “Believe you can or believe you can’t, either way you’re right.” It points to the importance of confidence and positive self-belief in accomplishing our goals at any age, but more so in the years after 60. The challenge is maintaining that confidence through tough times.
Are you the best person that you can be? It’s a simple question, but, its consequences are far reaching. Why?
Because making a commitment to self-improvement puts us in control of our lives – and a sense of control is a cornerstone of positivity. By taking action to be the best person we can be, we assert our right to judge ourselves. At the same time, we deny the right of others to judge us.
I saw a meme on Facebook last week with the following instruction: “think of one thing that makes you happy and smile.”
