Hello, dear ones. Welcome back and it’s so wonderful to be back! After much prompting, my New Year’s Resolution was to reignite and significantly expand the blog to include all things for the 50+ woman in helping you get unstuck:
Life, Career & Business, Home, Fashion, Style & Travel
(Yes, people get stuck in Travel too).
We are also excited to share that we’ve already had great interest from advertisers and sponsors and welcome any additional ideas you might have! And please feel free to message me or comment on where you get stuck, we’d love to help! So while the web designers do their thaaaaang, I thought I’d bring you up to speed on this end. Buckle your seat belts folks, ’cause what hasn’t changed is more like it!
I don’t know about you but of late I’ve been struck by just how little compassion there seems to be out of there. This lack of compassion comes in all shapes and sizes, knows no economic boundaries and sounds quite a bit like the following:
- Just move on, would you!;
- Whew, I’m of the hook!;
- That’s Not My Problem!;
- Heh, That’s the Past, Get Over it!;
- I’m just at a different place in my life. (I think the last one is perhaps the worst of all as it feigns sincerity and kindness.)
Greetings, dear friends, and my apologies for the long hiatus. Life has been a whirlwind of travel and fun (more on that at a future date) but I am officially back.
I’ve been thinking quite a bit about friendship these days; specifically what makes it tick and what makes it last. Three things come to mind.
Perhaps it’s the recent tragic shooting in Tucson, Arizona of Gabrielle Giffords and our current political climate, but I have been thinking lots about the practice of blame these days. It seems to be everywhere and getting worse. In order to change, we don’t need to debate how we got there, we can just look at its effects, how it showed up, and if we want to allow it to affect our own lives.
So in the spirit of “doing better,” the next time you catch yourself wanting to blame someone or something for your problems, consider this:
Blaming keeps you:
Last week’s blog talked a bit about supporting yourself and your family via revenue streams versus “the traditional job model” that many of us have become so accustomed to. Many of you are eager to learn more about multiple revenue streams and today I’ll give examples and explain how you can make that happen for yourself.
