Priorities and Overwhelm

I just got off a call with my cohort in the Podcast Marketing Academy. The idea of overwhelm and priorities came up and I wonder if this is affecting some of you? I have been thinking about this for a while. In fact, I started to write a blog about it earlier, but never finishedContinue reading “Priorities and Overwhelm”

Guest Post: Regeneration

Ending the Climate Crisis in One Generation I received this post as a guest post from the Modern Elder Academy and asked if I could share it with the Hey, Boomer audience. I felt like it was a good post to follow our discussion with Dr. Wes Dripps, from the Shi Institute for Sustainable Communities.Continue reading “Guest Post: Regeneration”

Play is not just for kids!

I had Physical Therapy today. There is the ever-present lower back/leg pain, and then my neck and shoulder started tightening up as well. So Physical Therapy has been good, teaching me strengthening exercises to stabilize some of my weaker muscles. My therapist was proud of my progress today on neck strength and movement. Now weContinue reading “Play is not just for kids!”

WORDS That Inspire

I started a blog last year about selecting a WORD for the coming year. It was wintertime, shorter days, and a period when I generally spend more time in reflection. I didn’t finish the blog post, but I did share an exercise for selecting a WORD for the year, and at our Virtual Hey, BoomerContinue reading “WORDS That Inspire”

Four Ways to Channel Anger into something Positive

When I posted my blog last week about frustration with anti-vaxers, I was asked the question, “How do we channel anger into something positive?” The news is filled with statistics about the Delta variant. ICU’s full, health care workers completely burned out, more children getting sicker. We see terrible pictures showing the effects of climateContinue reading “Four Ways to Channel Anger into something Positive”

And in order for this to be authentic and meaningful to you, I am going to have to share some of those stories.  Ok, here goes. I will startContinue reading “Stories we tell ourselves”

Pain is Inevitable, Suffering is Optional

Pain can be exhausting! I just got back from Yosemite National Park, a trip I have been looking forward to for over a year. It was very hot, over 105° every day. And very dry, and the last day there we smelled smoke from nearby fires. All of that made the trip challenging but dealingContinue reading “Pain is Inevitable, Suffering is Optional”

The Comfort is in the Questions

Monroe Free is the President and CEO of Habitat for Humanity Greenville County. He wrote this letter in response to an email from the Greenville Partnership for Philanthropy newsletter. I found it so compelling that I asked Monroe if I could share with the Hey, Boomer! audience as a guest post. He said yes. InContinue reading “The Comfort is in the Questions”

Forest Bathing – Mindfulness Walk in the Woods

A couple of weeks ago, a group of the Hey, Boomer community went on a Forest Bathing experience. I don’t think any of us really knew what to expect. All we knew was that we liked being out in nature, we were intrigued with the idea of mindfulness, and we were open to a newContinue reading “Forest Bathing – Mindfulness Walk in the Woods”

Seven Steps to Reach your Dreams

Six years ago, I wrote that “I would create a community of like-minded people, open-minded, educated, people who want to improve their own quality of life and who want to leave the world a better place.” Six years ago, I was not thinking about how that would happen, I just knew that I had aContinue reading “Seven Steps to Reach your Dreams”
