Happy 2013 .. On Your Terms
My second breast biopsy came back negative. That is despite the fact that breast/colon cancer tends to cluster in families and that it does in my family. My eyes are okay. My teeth, at least the ones which matter, are keeps, for the current time.
I also have learned to make friends, something I initially got the hang of in the Single Girlfriends. As we Baby Boomers used to say in our youth, “My dance card is full.” People are coming into my life, rather than my chasing them. Toby Bloomberg helped make this possible. Thanks, Toby.
In addition, my business is going along fine. I have reconfigured it from the focus on social media (no $, big glut) back to my original branding in executive communications (ghostwriting/speechwriting). Yes, we can change, at any age. We can also bypass regret. Who, after all, is keeping track?
And, in my eight-week online program on financial reporting, funded by McGraw-Hill, I have learned that many different cultures and individuals define “wealth” in idiosyncratic ways. For example, for some Latinos in America “wealth” means a healthy family whose members stick together. I was awarded a place in the program because of my proposal for covering the 66+ demographic. The question I want to explore is how we aging have come to define “wealth.” For me it has become the abundance of opportunities to learn. And learn I have in 2012.
I wish each Single Girlfriend the ability to live 2013 on your own terms.
No one will every again push us to conform to what doesn’t fit.
