""Nothing would be done at all if [we] waited until [we] could do it so well that no one could find fault with it." by John Henry Newman, 19th century English Cardinal
above quote reminds me that one of the beauties of midlife is the
knowledge that we don't have to be perfect. Let this be a gentle
reminder as we continue to prepare for, and celebrate the holidays.
that time of year when I begin reflecting about the past year and
planning for the next. I'm taking my mental, physical and spiritual
health into consideration and trying to figure out the best way for
this boomer babe to stay healthy. Sound familiar?
wondering how I can be a good wife to my midlife man, parent children
who no longer live at home, spend more time with Dad who is slowing
down, and stay connected to other family members and friends.
of course, there's work. How can I grow the association and offer
superb educational opportunities to help all of you be your best
selves? I hope to cut your learning curve a bit by creating an
educational schedule that will benefit all areas of your lives. Here's
a look at what's to come in 2009. Teleseminar topics will include the
following: finances, retirement, personal development, maintaining
relationships with grown children, going green, fashion, living alone
at midlife, starting over at midlife, health, care giving, making the
most of every day, and living with our children's poor choices. If
these topics are of interest to you, why not join us to learn more.
the grace of God, there are many of you who have helped and will
continue to help us with our mission. Upon reflection, I have much to
be thankful for. And looking at the goals for the NABBW, all of us have
much to look forward to.
May you take some time this month to
reflect, give thanks, plan, and look forward to 2009 with anticipation
and excitement. Have a blessed Christmas season, and if you don't
celebrate Christmas, may you enjoy celebrating life!

of herself but can't always squeeze it in because she's so busy caring
