How do you imagine yourself entering your retirement years?
Do you feel calm, centered, and looking forward to new experiences, new activities, and new adventures?
Are you healthy and strong? Financially prepared to manage your day-to-day expenses while also allowing for extra fun and exploits?
Do you picture yourself FINALLY having the time to pursue the hobbies and interests you’ve been putting off for decades?
Are you tingling with anticipation?
Or are you like many woman who feel anxious and worried about the aging process and all that that might mean for your physical, emotional, and financial health?
- You talk about the need to improve your physical health (lose weight, exercise and eat healthier foods), but have no plan–and no motivation–to do it.
- You silently dread the many long years you’ll need to keep working because financially you can’t afford to even think about retiring.
- You harbor feelings of regret for words that were spoken and relationships that were damaged.
- You wish you had made the time to write books, paint pictures, and create the world that lives within you.
- You think of your seemingly perfect life and wonder, “Really? Is this all there is?”
You feel like something is missing, but you don’t know what. You worry that “this” is all there is, and think you are getting a bum deal. You keep plodding thru every day wondering if any of it even matters.
You are trapped by the daily routines that have made life easier, if not totally satisfying, for decades. And you don’t know if you can do anything about it.
Are you ready to change your story?
Many women don’t see these years on either side of 50-something as a time to explore and create the “goodness” that they’ve been hiding within themselves.
They don’t realize they are in that sweet transition spot when their children are grown and their parents don’t require a lot of their time and energy.
Are you one of those women?
Or are you a woman who are ready to focus your time and energy on your own health?
Your health covers many categories… many aspects of who you are as in individual.
This is THE best time to focus on YOUR health story!
I get that it can be easy (comfortable, familiar) to keep putting yourself last (you’ve been doing it for decades); but there is no better time to put your dreams and goals at the top of your priority list!
And you DO have time. You just may need to put a bit of energy and focus into swapping out those tasks and energy-suckers that leave you feeling drained and dissatisfied with activities that fill you will joy and anticipation.
Yes, it is possible!

What does this mean for you?
It means that TODAY is the day for you to take action. TODAY is the day you can start enjoying that healthier and happier lifestyle.
You know, the lifestyle that will allow you to tour the landmarks, eat the food, experience the cultures of cities around the world.
The lifestyle that will allow you to enjoy time with family and friends without worrying about money or your health.
The lifestyle that will allow you to frolic in the rain with your grandchildren–isn’t frolic a fun word–because your physical body is strong and vibrant!
How do you create that new and improved lifestyle?
It’s not as difficult or as complicated as you might think. It really isn’t.
The key is to take small, consistent actions that move you in the direction of your goals. Small actions that become a part of your daily routine… in essence, become a part of you!
