Check Your Pulse

Feeling like you’re on the run in “Alice in Wonderland ?

There are so many places to go, things to see, and people to meet that we can sometimes feel as overwhelmed and scattered as the Mad Hatter!

This is the down side of all the choices we have available at this stage of life.

And it is often fueled by the fear that if not now, when? Maybe we will never have another chance to do, see, be,THIS. There is some truth to that. Our choices are wide and our time, resources and energy are limited. Sigh….

One of the main purposes of  our book is to help us make conscious choices so we are truly maximizing our joy and improving the quality of our experiences. I have found that making choices based on Suzanne’s trio of sensations – does it make me feel focused, energized, happy – often helps the right decision float to the top of my scattered mind. Check out Chapter 7. Give this a try and let us know how it works for you!

 

“Aging: Life’s Most Dangerous Game”

A few weeks ago, my husband and I had the opportunity to see Dr. Bill Thomas performing in his Age of Disruption Tour – what a great evening!  The Blumenthal Performing Arts Center in Charlotte, NC, was  a perfect venue for the “non-fiction theater” about changing the way we view aging. Paired with amazing musician Nate Silas Richardson, the show was creatively arranged, personally engaging, insightful, and most of all, honest. And we were invited to use our cell phones to capture the moment….thanks Bill!Age of Disruption Tour 2

Since Conscious Creative Retirement™ is all about learning to make intentional choices in the “next chapter” of our lives, this program adds another creative dimension to thinking about how we age, and navigating the new normal of our retirement years.

The tour is continuing around the US for several more months, so be sure to check their website for dates and times near you.  You’ll be glad you did! Changing Aging
