As a single woman over 60, I am keenly aware that it’s often tough to feel confident. I sometimes feel like I have to put on my boxing gloves to get out there and stay relevant. After all, we live in a world that equates beauty and talent with youth.
Having been in a bad marriage for more than 30 years, I thought I was the biggest loser on the planet. I felt I was certainly not attractive and unappealing. I was overweight. I was not good at making money, but I was good at spending them. I wasn’t sexy at all and had zero sex appeal.

Do you feel like you keep starting over with the same goals? About this time every winter I realize that I have already given up on many of the things that I wanted to change about myself in the new year. About two weeks in! Can you believe it?
After being single for several months, I felt it was time to get back up on the dating horse – but I was too afraid of online dating after 50.

I was not the best student when I was young. I think I just didn’t feel that I had time when there was so much other interesting stuff going on!
Do you want to know how to get on the road to looking 10 years younger than you do right now? It is so simple with these three easy steps: take inventory, rid yourself of energy takers, then forgive and move forward.
Keep this word top of mind: accountability. It feels like it is one of several buzzwords for 2018. The first time it caught my attention was when I was watching the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and the newest member of the group turned out to be an Accountability Coach.
