Women Who Shine

You know you've "reached a certain age" when you hear someone is in her thirties and you think...just a baby!

But it's true. That was decades ago. 

What happens to women as they venture into their 40s, 50s, 60s, and beyond?

A lot of my friends are going through a similar phase--we worry about our aging parents, our kids are becoming more independent, we are dealing with white hair and menopause and empty nest syndrome.

It's a time of new beginnings, but with a whole new crop of concerns/issues. An exciting time of change, but it can also be fraught with anxiety.

Since I've seen so many friends and readers and colleagues struggling with similar issues, I thought it would be cool to have a place to share our thoughts about aging. How to do it gracefully, or not so gracefully. 

How to embrace our maturity and wisdom and timeless beauty.

I would love to invite my friends to participate in this celebration of "Women Who Shine." I want to hear about mature women who inspire. Movies that celebrate mature women. Also...music, poetry, books, articles, etc. Anything!

I would love to include original essays, reviews, links, health tips. Let's be creative!

Great concept. I'm too busy now writing books, publishing them, making video book trailers, managing multiple social media sites. doing some consulting work and keeping house to write an essay on aging gracefully right now.
I guess I feel like I'm still in the thick of my life at the moment and still going strong.
Not sure if that qualifies as either aging in particular or graceful.
But I'm pretty happy at 64 and counting.
So there you have it.
Thanks for the Blog!
