New Year’s News from Aging Abundantly

December 28, 2011

Wow! Where did 2011 go?! It’s been a gallant year for so many. It has been a year that has tested our mettle and pushed us harder to examine our values and live the lives we are meant to live. I have been lifted up, time and time again, by all of you amazing women who visit my website and blog and never hesitate to leave a kind word behind. One thing that has been reinforced in my life this year is that I really don’t have to pretend to be someone I’m not in order to be loved, accepted and appreciated. Sometimes it just requires looking in the right place!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Let’s continue to “run with the wolves” in 2012, pushing our creative boundaries, expanding our lives and loving one another. I will endeavor to do my part.

A few newsy things:

  • I was recently invited to write a little something for a newsletter for  film called “Hot Flash Havoc ~ A Film of Menopausal Proportions”.  You might be interested in learning more about this film. (You will find my article, “Just Watch us Go” there as well.)
  • I just released a new book called “A Little Book of Hope”. You will see it on the right hand side of this page. It is a collection of my favorite quotes and those that the fans of Aging Abundantly on Facebook have found meaningful over the last several years. It also includes a selection of my writings on such topics as Change, Purpose, Success, Fear, Creativity and more. The book is small in stature (4 x 6) to fit in your pocket or purse, but hopefully, not small in import.  Blank pages at the end provide a place to add your own favorite quotes and thoughts.  It is available through the Aging Abundantly website for a discounted price or through LuLu for full price (really??). Check it out and let me know what you think. I always enjoy your feedback.
  • In 2012 I will be featuring a series of guest bloggers to write on subjects of interest to women over fifty (in addition to my own usual ramblings). If you would like to be a guest or know someone who would please contact me by email at  I have a few spaces still available, but they are filling up fast.
  • I am also looking for feature articles for the Aging Abundantly website on topics of interest to people like you! Sadly there is no budget for payment at this time but I am always happy to include as many links as you would like. The website is all about supporting women over fifty and the services they provide, so if you have a business with a budget and would like to use it as an avenue for promotion email me for qualifications and a price list.  The readership has grown exponentially over the last year and with any luck will garner more interest this year.
  • If you are a proud owner of a Keurig Brewing System let me know. As an Ambassador I occasionally receive free samples and discount offerings through Green Mountain Coffee. (Have I mentioned I love my K-cup brewer?) You don’t even have to be a coffee drinker as there are a wide variety of teas, hot apple cider, cocoa and anything else that is liquid and hot available in K-cup form.
  • I also have had an opportunity to preview a Large Print Planner that I absolutely love. It’s made by PlanAhead and in my opinion it’s the way all planners should be designed! Clear, straightforward and easy to read. Even for the not-blind population! Why do planner manufacturers think they have to use very tiny, very faint type? The Large Print Planner is available at CVS sells from $1.99 to $8.99 depending on the size.  I’m hoping to have a drawing for one very soon and  will post it on Facebook (Aging Abundantly).

Enough business! I do hope you have had a meaningful holiday season. I am looking forward to a new year filled with new adventures!

When you reach the end of what you should know, you will be at the beginning of what you should sense.
