Apparently, I've peaked

I went on a date with my son. For five hours we hung out together, I introduced him to the Lego store, we ate ice cream, he went on a carousel ride and we bought some books. He told me that he wanted to go on another date with me soon because he was "happiest with Mommy."



I love spending time with him - he…

Appreciating the Aha

aha

I've always believed that everything happens for a reason.  And though we often don't ever know the reason, sometimes, we get lucky enough to find out just why things happen the way that they do.  I LOVE those little "aha" moments.  They help to restore my faith and to reassure me that something greater IS actually in…

The face in the mirror

As I gazed in the mirror this morning I could only cringe.  New lines and wrinkles, new gray, new age spots....all this newness simply meant I was getting old.  I am not obsessed with my age of 56 but I do acknowledge that I have more days behind me than what I will ever see in front of me.  I wish I could see myself through the eyes of my grandchildren.  They don't see the wrinkles or age spots but rather someone whose eyes twinkle when they are around, someone who feels silly and…

Natural Wrinkle Creams - Effective Alternatives to Chemical Laced Wrinkle Creams

By Carol Cassara – Contributor & Midlife Wrangler

We’re the first generation to hit middle age (and official “senior” status) that knows we’re going to live longer—and healthier.  And that means we still have at least another 20 years to make our dreams come true.

Julia Child, Gandhi, Dr. Ruth, and authors Laura Ingalls Wilder and Frank McCourt were all late…

Aging Gracefully

By Liza Kovacs, M.S.C, M.A., Fitness Contributor

Wow. I know I am not the only one who thinks about the future and wish for this, to be spared somewhat from the ravages of time and to sail through the twilight of my life with ease and elegance. My older sister reminded me again recently about Baby Boomers and their needs. While I fall a year short of being officially…

AMOUR: Lessons from the 2013 Best Foreign Film

 

Although the 2013 Academy Awards are history, one gem - Amour - will continue to shine. This heartbreaking and unflinching movie was painful to watch but it stimulated conversations with more questions than answers.

As the people we love decline, how do we deal with the inevitable suffering?

Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke tackled this subject and won the 2013 Academy Award for best foreign language film. The leads, veteran French actors Jean-Louis…

Turning 50: 8 Pieces of Advice I Would Give My 20 Year-Old Self

By Audrey van Petegem, Senior Editor

My husband surprised me with a 50th birthday party this summer. He invited all my friends throughout my many stages of life to come and share pictures of me when they knew-me-back-when. It was really fun to watch the slide show and reminisce about the good times with old friends.

There was one of me on my father’s sailboat that my…

Signs

Last night I was invited to a birthday party of a girl I know. The invite read "another year of being in denial". Considering that she is around 40 the use of the word girl on my part is my own form of denial. While there, I ran into another friend and we chatted and she said that she had been thinking that this year she was turning 40 and maybe it was time to really consider single motherhood. Just then, she got an email from me announcing my new business and website and she saw it as a…

Hoochie Mama?

Hoochie Mama?

It's hard to believe that I'll be 35 tomorrow.  When I was a kid—and even in my early twenties—35 sounded ridiculously "grown up," and 40 seemed positively ancient.  Yet here I am, feeling perfectly fine about the milestone.



I probably wouldn't be making much of…

Maybe 40 Won't Suck After All....

On Monday morning, I awoke to find even bigger bags under my eyes and four new grey hairs at the crown of my head.  I stared at my tired reflection in the mirror and thought, "Wow, is this REALLY what the next decade is gonna look like?"  Here I was all prepared to rock my forties like a champ, but the day sure wasn't getting off to a very good…

Beauty and Wisdom - Altering the Perception of Aging

By Robbie Kaye, Photographer and Guest Contributor

Why is it a daunting task to alter the perception of aging and beauty when we all do it? What if there were billboards of sexy 50 and 60 year olds doing sports or just close ups of their aged faces? What if there were pictures of older men and women in hair salons? Why should…
