Talk About Following Your Passion…

The other day, on the way home from gym, a large bird flew
past my car. I had to get a closer look, since we have
a neighborhood osprey, and I often see her carrying away
fish from our adjacent pond. I drove to where she landed
and to my surprise it was a Great Horned Owl that had just
caught a small mammal and was tearing at it on the branch.
Luckily, I’m always prepared with binoculars in the car, so I sat
there watching this National Geographic moment for a little
while. I turned away for a second and when I looked up she
was on another branch, but this time, standing next to her
was another large owl.… CONTINUE READING

Get Ready to Reinvent Yourself

It’s time to reinvent yourself. How long are you wearing your hair this way? How many times have you told yourself you can’t lose those extra 15 lbs?

Recognize that you are experiencing the loss of a way of life and the security it provided.… CONTINUE READING

Baby Boomer’s Survival Guide for the Holidays

This is the start of the holiday season and I look forward to the visits from the kids and the rest of the family. I am lucky, though, because we are all very close and get along well. But I know that many boomers experience extra stress, anxiety and more aggravation than usual during this time of year, when there is so much to do and not enough time to do it. String together a few stressful days (weeks) and you’re feeling like your patience has been stretched to the limit.

How do you get through the holidays with your spirit and good will intact and actually enjoy yourself?… CONTINUE READING

The Law of Attraction is Always Working

It feels good to feel good. Yet, if I wake up in the morning and say, “Today’s going to be a lousy day, because the boss is back from vacation,” I already laid out the day’s events. It’s like I preprogrammed a miserable day, and it’s no shock to find out the day is exactly as I expected. I used words and their feelings to solidify how the Law of Attraction works.

The Law of Attraction answers your thoughts and the feelings behind the words by giving you exactly what you are requesting and offers you more of the same. Therefore, it is important to focus on what you want, rather than on what you don’t want.… CONTINUE READING
