Do Pets Bring Happiness After 60? Do You Have One?

I feel kind of strange writing this post, because, for the first time in my life, I don’t have a pet. For decades, my family was filled with cats, dogs, mice and an ecosystem’s worth of more exotic animals. Now that I live by myself and have started prioritizing travel, I don’t have any pets. That said, I know how much joy animals can bring to our lives. If I wasn’t so busy, I would definitely bring another furry friend into my life! Let’s talk about the special creatures in our lives. Please tell us what your dogs or cats means to you. Come join us for a cup of tea (or coffee) and a chat. And, if you enjoy the show, please tell one friend about us today.

What Brings Meaning to Your Life?

One of the things that I have noticed since starting the Sixty and Me community is that the happiest women among us are the ones that have found meaning in their lives. Some of us find comfort in a religion or spiritual belief. Others donate their time and treasure to political, environmental or social causes that they feel make the world a better place. Still others find meaning through their relationships with their friends and family. Everyone is different, but, we all need to be needed. We all need to feel like our lives matter. So, today, I would like to talk about how to find meaning in your life after 60. Come join us for a cup of tea (or coffee) and a chat.
