Create Your Second Life The Way You Want

September 2, 2009

I have been doing some reading about Mid-life Crisis and what they really are. I’m finding the information fascinating to say the least. I am a woman who is in her mid-life…now… and I have to say that I’m having a ball so far. No…Really…I am!

So here’s my 2 cents on creating the second life the way you want.

Now that I’m in my Mid-life I (I’m)…
1. Not concerned about what the “They’s” say, as in what will THEY think
2. Dress the way that I want to…not because a fashion magazine told me to do so
3. Believe in myself more
4. Believe in my skills and talents
5. Fully believe that I DO have all my answers within me
6. Choose not to wear high heels
7. Say what I really think more
8. Speak from the heart more often
9. Believe I can make a difference in the world
10. Choose friends who add to my life
11. Drop acquaintances that DRAG me down
12. Creating a wider circle of unique friends of various ages
13. Re-Designing how I spend my time and energy
14. Organizing my life…starting with WHO I REALLY AM
15. Being Authentic
16. Letting go of old and outdated labels that no longer fit

What life do you want?

Have you started your Re-Design life yet?

Until next time… Make each day count!

Be Real,


15 things I like doing when it’s raining

July 9, 2009

This week has been filled with lots of rain here in Edmonton, Alberta. A Lot of conversation around me on this subject, some good, some bad & some just indifferent. I don’t mind the rain myself and enjoy seeing all the trees & grass getting greener.
I created this list to highlight what I like about the rain.

So….here’s my 2 cents on ways to accept the rain

1. Read a good book your were putting off
2. Listen to the sounds of the gentle rain outside(or not so gentle)
3. The refreshing smell of the air being scrubbed clean… Ummm!
4. Hopping around the puddles
5. Jumping IN the puddles
6. Making paper boats to float down the streets to the sewer (any one still know how to make?)
7. Gave up making the paper boats and just used crumpled paper to float down streets
8. Toothpick races also fun to down the streets
9. Watching the birds come to feed on the bugs & worms
10. Seeing the vibrant green in all of nature pop out
11. Singing in the rain(just like Gene Kelly)
12. Going for a nice long , slow walk
13. Umbrella, rubber shoes, rain coat and covered head
14. Enjoying a nap on a sleep rainy day
15. Knowing the rain will come out once again soon

What rainy day activities do you enjoy?

Have you started a list of how to accept the rain yet?

Until next time… Make each day count!

Be grateful,
