The Election Noise, Senior Financial Stress & RESOURCES: ecourse $100.00 off
Wow – I have to say I’m both addicted to (writes the addiction counselor & money coach) and repelled by all the election noise. What are we going to do when it’s over?
These days, I miss my father in law, Stan. He was a conservative Republican and we used to have great respectful “discussions” about politics. I wonder what he would think of Trump. I know what he’d think of Hillary. I’m with Hillary and not because she’s the lesser of 2 evils. I support your right to vote for who you believe best represents you. Enough said.
As some of you will remember, Dave, my husband, retired last November. He LOVES retirement!! I’m thrilled because he’s happy. Also, he cooks most nights and appears to enjoy domesticity – he just got back from Costco! Yeah Dave!
I’m not ready to retire – perhaps never will be – but I am taking my foot off the DRIVEN gas pedal a bit. I have to say it feels weird that for the first time in 25 years I’m not writing to a deadline (2 books and an eCourse) or marketing for speaking engagements.
With this different work perspective – working 20 vs. 40 + hours a week – recently, I ditched work and we went to Berkeley, CA and spent the night at The Shattuck Hotel – a cute, funky place. We had dinner at one of the best restaurants anywhere – Chez Pannisse, the home of Internationally known chef Alice Waters. What a fabulous treat!
I still love my counseling work, which is focused on addictive concerns, the non-profit events for United Way Women’s Leadership and our local monthly Women2Women Financial Education Series – Next date Oct 26th 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. “Tricks to Buy & Keep a Home”. Ok, so I’m still pretty busy! I’d love to hear what’s up in your life – you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
As I feel into my own senior-ness and the changes life brings I recognize that, in general, LIFE is all about change and some of those changes are very difficult. My good friend, Donna, has just passed from cancer. I feel for her, her whole family and ALL those going thru cancer treatment. Donna has always been a model for others about how to work hard, love big and do good. She’s continued to do so thru this last stage of her life. We will all miss her so much!
