Words of Wisdom from Anne Frank


“How wonderful it is that nobody need to wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”

-Anne Frank,

author, holocaust survivor

We can all make a difference and contribute whenever we choose to, at any age, or under any circumstance.  When we contribute, we feel a pure sense of fulfillment.   This is also where we can find great purpose and worth.  Choose to reach out and make a difference today… it will do your soul good.


New year’s resolution? Have fun – now!

I was excited to read this interesting article in the New York Times, and I felt it perfect to share with you all on this first day of 2010.  In the article, John Tierney looks into the all-so-common phenomenon of postponing pleasure.   We all get those gift certificates that expire as we kept putting off going into the shop to redeem them.  We don’t take that vacation we’ve been thinking about for ages, don’t cash in our frequent flier miles, and don’t open that special bottle of wine.  AND the longer we put it off, the harder it is to get around to doing it!  Scientists have been doing research on the topic, but what it all boils down to is — we need to give ourselves deadlines for our “fun activities,” — or chances are, you’ll avoid them forever.

So — I wish you all a happy, healthy, prosperous new year, full of gratitude, and love, and FUN!

Bikinis and Bifocals

Bikinis and Bifocals

The 60’s are the new 50’s. The 40’s are the new 30’s.  We as women are living life with a different mindset, motivation, and purpose. We’ve redefined what it means to be a women at any age, and we’ve embaced the experience and wisdom that aging brings.  True beauty, is found within. And it shows on the faces of women who have embraced who they are, what they’ve been through, and where they’re going. 

We need to stick together and support one another as women. One of my favorite online women’s support group is called, Bikinis and Bifocals.  (Bikinis is for the attitude, and Bifocals is for the reality).  This wonderful group of women share information, support one another, have a lot of fun, and embrace who they are at this time in their lives.  I highly encourage you to check out their site and become a member like I am (it’s free!), and learn more about their mission.  Bikinis and Bifocals… it’s an attitude and a lifestyle!  Spread the word!
