Sixty and Spectacularly Solo – Yes!
One of my fondest childhood memories is of afternoon drives with my Grandfather. Every once in a while he would gather the grands on a Sunday and drive out into the country-side. Sometimes it was with my siblings. Others included my cousins. But regardless of who else was along, it was going to be aContinue reading “Re: JOY”
Experts tell us that social isolation is detrimental to both physical and mental health. That is why it is so important for us to stay connected with ‘the outside world’ during our aloneness. So whether by choice or by chance – we must work to include communication of some sort into our SaSS-Y! routines. Calls,Continue reading “Let’s Talk!”
The United States is celebrating independence this weekend. Liberation from the rule of another country. Rejecting the notions that others had for how the county should live, move forward. Have you liberated yourself? Have you granted yourself independence from the notions imposed by others as to how your life should be? The joy of livingContinue reading “Independence Day!”
SaSS-Y! is a state of mind. One would think it would be a short time before arriving there. But for many it is not. That is because we have to ‘un – do’ before we can make the ‘new’. I have been watching re-runs of the HGTV show Home Town. Ben and Erin Napier workContinue reading “On the Way to SaSS-Y!”
We have reflected, connected, committed, and transformed. All on the way to Spectacular. Reached out to old friends. Rekindled faded relationships. Examined ourselves. Determined what kind of SaSS-Y! we want to be. But what about the Spectacular that we used to be? What have we put away, forgotten of our Spectacular past? I recently shiftedContinue reading “Re-Connecting”

Their ever-judgmental presence lurks as a foreboding shadow over our thoughts. OverContinue reading “Who have you grown to be?”
Butterflies are my favorite animal. As a child, I always marveled at the transformation of the caterpillar into such wonderful creatures with bright, striking colors and delicately beautiful wings. These spectacular displays always warmed my spirit. Their flight seemed to serve as a message: there is light and life beyond. Indeed. There is aContinue reading “Transformation”
Spring is here. The vaccine is available. People are scheduling events and making travel plans. But for many others, nothing will change. Their actions will still be limited. They will still be living a solo existence. For many – life will continue along the same path. We also know something about that path for thoseContinue reading “To Be Continued…”
Yes, this phrase says it all. A colleague shared this at work one Friday morning. How fitting for our Spectacular lives. It is our belief that forms our impressions. It is our belief that makes our lives spectacular. It is our belief that living alone does not mean we are lonely. So, as we settleContinue reading “This says it all!”
