Andrea, I like how you practice being a conscious observer - listening for evidence within yourself and in others. Thanks for the inspiration (and reminder!) to live into each day, with forgiveness to unfetter our present choices toward the future. Synchronicity at play again! Truly, Monica.

Hi Pam, I love your article! There is no reason why our elders need to become invisible. Your proclamation may help other women to unveil themselves of the "glamour" of "looking young" and perhaps help even more others to be a little relieved from their fear of aging. I celebrate you and your 70 years! Best, Monica

Sometimes it seems that we must carry that unnecessary burden in order to awaken to the realization that we do have the freedom to choose something different. Helen Keller’s statement, “Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood,” is a help to me. Especially when I find my self-acceptance waning due to my negative self-chatter – you know that should-have-done voice… Thanks for chronicling your journey. I always find your tenacity and transparent observation of self an inspiration.

Andrea, I love the synchronicity of the clerk clipping the thread from your sleeve! Yes, a time of reflection to lead us peacefully forward into the New Year. Happy holidays! Monica

Andrea, this post immediately brought to my mind a quote I had captured from the movie, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, "...the measure of success is how we cope with the disappointment." TIP: The 'change guru' exists within—yes? You are always an inspiration. Thank you, Monica
