I’m learning

The beauty about getting older is really “getting” people.  I now understand that I have a choice on who stays in my life and who does not.  Food for thought…


Moving Forward with Reinvention and a Retreat!

I haven’t been around as much lately since I’ve been keeping busy with my reinvention ideas. 

Annoucement!  One of my reinvention ideas is coming to fruitition with the assistance of a co-host who is also a life coach.

Last coaching session, my personal coach told me to focus on the magic that is happening to me, instead of the “work” that I so not want to do any longer.  Well, here I go! Magic is happening!

Today, I’ve announced a women’s only weekend retreat in Safety Harbor, Florida, at the one and only Safety Harbor Resort & Spa!  

Wishful Reinvention Weekend Retreat

As with the creation of this blog and my Project Reinvention Meetup site, the weekend retreat was created because there are absolutely none like it in our area. 

So here is my selfish plug….any women out there in the Tampa Bay area (or anywhere for that matter), looking to get away for a relaxing, rejuvenating weekend with other like-minded women,  please join us!  You can find retreat details on my Project Reinvention Meetup Group link below.  Join the Meetup group as a member for further details!  It’s a steal of a deal!

The Big Five OHHHHHHH

Well, it’s here, it’s today and I don’t feel any different than yesterday. 

I have decided that I am JUMPING into this chapter with abandon, liberation and an attitude that I will now consider my needs, wants and desires rather than always putting others’ ahead of me. 

And so, I found this post on Pinterest and thought it was super appropriate…how thought provoking and inspiring as I shift into the next chapter of my life.  Bring it on!

Go now, and live.


Lynne Spreen is on point with this post!  Empowerment; how are YOU going to use it?

Any Shiny Thing

There’s something about turning 50 or being close to it that allows you to benefit from your hard-won experience. This is a time when our life lessons come home.

I remember when I was in my 20s and 30s thinking I had everything figured out. But now at almost 60? No comparison. In our younger years, we’re just gathering data. Then at some point our vision clears, and we’re able to assimilate it. Dr. Christiane Northrup would say that it’s because of our changing levels of hormones.

She believes that these hormones were responsible for keeping us complacent and placid during the years that we’re fertile. Otherwise, we might go crazy and do something bad to our babies or our mate. Then at a certain point your reproductive ability diminishes and the fog clears (again, this is according to her hypothesis).

The woman now has new perspective, and along with it…

Repeat After Me…

For all those ‘followers’ out there, every morning when you rise,

 REPEAT THESE WORDS. 

Break away!  Let us all become what we are truly meant  to be! 


Getting Started by Mark Twain

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.  The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.”

 – Mark Twain

This was this morning’s quote for my Meetup group.  It’s a very simple message yet very powerful.  I have often found myself running in circles when I have a huge task that overwhelms me.  Picture a circling boat without a captain at the helm; round and round we go.   You get the idea.   

How do you break overwhelming tasks down?  Lists!  Ingenious, isn’t it?

This vision I have for my next chapter of my life has so many moving pieces, not only am I impatient to go through the process, I’m really not sure where to begin. 

Thank you Mark Twain!  I’m going to start making some lists.
