Are you the kind of woman who is SO excited to be alive that you can hardly wait to AGE another day?
Stretching it just a bit, maybe?
Those of us who live well don’t think about aging another day. We just look forward to waking up to another day because we’re up to something that we love!
If instead you’ve been uneasy about aging, wondering what the years will do to your looks, worried about illness, loss or (please, not that!) death, you are definitely not alone.
Those are natural reactions that deserve to be acknowledged.
But there’s more.
Living (and aging) can be an adventure – creative, rewarding, meaningful and optimistic.
Imagination and a decision to make it so is all you need.
There are many ways to make aging an adventure.
These basic principles can make all the difference.
How you live is how you age
Have you noticed that people you know who complain whenever you speak to them or who are grumpy most of the time have been that way forever?
You can live – and age – in real and inspired ways.
Because if you’ve been excited about creating something in your life most days, you’ll probably continue to do so now.
And if you haven’t been, this is a good time to learn how to make something beautiful out of the living and aging process, no matter what phase you are in.
An approach like this is priceless and can bring you unexpected joy, no matter what’s going on.
It takes courage to choose a different way of living, to let go of the poor me victim stance and step into personal power.
But it’s doable. I’ve done it and so have my clients.
Get the living part right, and you’ll thrive through any stage.
How you see the world and what you believe can either free you up, or lock you up.
Teachable, learnable skills!
You are a natural creator
Creativity and imagination are in everything you think and do.
Once you get that you are a creator by virtue of being human, every moment can become an opportunity for creating.
Creating anything you care about – from organizing and decorating a room to cooking a special meal – produces a flow state where time stands still.
And in that place of total absorption comes a sense of fulfilment and peace.
When we are involved in something that lights us up and serves others – a special pursuit or tiny playful project of our own – our whole life lights up.
Involved in something meaningful, we begin to step into our natural talents and confidence.

Luscious Aging embraces a desire to become as conscious and aware as you can be, releasing patterns that impede your natural ability to stand in your personal power.
Luscious Aging is the opportunity to let go of roles, rules, masks, and constraints that no longer work for you and to find what you care about the most.
Luscious Aging implies that you are aiming for optimal health. You do what is right for our body, mind, and soul because when you do, you feel better.
Luscious Aging is a stand for making this natural process rich with creative possibility, relationships and love. It is not a stand against the inevitability of slowing down and eventually dying. It does however embrace life as it is with attitudes and perspectives that enrich you and all of us.

It is never too late.

Imagine having more enthusiasm, inspiration and ease.
