Happy Spring!

Happy Spring!

"If I had my Life to Live Over"

I would start barefoot earlier in the spring

and stay that way later in the fall.

I would go to more dances.

I would ride more merry-go-rounds.

I would pick more daisies.

-poet Nadine Stair (wrote when she was 85)

70 Candles

Wow, 70 candles!  For some of us that seems like a long way away, for others it might be tomorrow or for some it might have already passed them by.  What ever your age take a look at 70 Candles.  It was started by two women who were reaching this big milestone in their lives.  They look great for 70!  Browse the blog, read some of the comments and stories and watch the video.  If you are approaching that age leave a comment or story.  It is wonderful to have such strong healthy role models for the up coming years.

The "Jane Handly Childhood" Story

The Jane Handly Childhood Story is a tender story about the daughter of a very wise mother who has spent a lifetime blossoming with beauty, confidence and bliss.  Sometimes we get so obsessed with our outer selves: wrinkles, cherubic bellies, laugh lines and hot flashes that we overlook our inner beauty.  Take a few moments to reflect on what you have worked a lifetime to achieve - that inner strength and wisdom.  Stop selling yourself short.  Feel the power, the pride.

We have learned so many lessons in the rich experiences of a long lived life.  Older women have passion, guts and the experience of age.  We can change the world if we set out minds and hearts to it.

Get Real

I love these short and to the point videos.  Watch Get Real: Wise Women Speak.  My favorite line is We are meant to be whole and hopefully we get there before we die.

We gain wisdom everytime we open our minds and hearts to new ideas and to our own creativity.  It is never too late!
