From the Author

I have just a few questions for you. This will help you determine if this book is for you. Ready?
  • How are you really feeling about getting older?
  • Have you encountered any of the first telltale signs that the world is seeing you differently than you view yourself?
  • Have people started calling you "Ma'am" and no longer call you "Miss"?
  • How about hot flashes? Have you had any of those yet? Do you even know what a hot flash feels like?
  • And just what the heck is going on with your monthly cycles? You used to be so regular, right?
  • Any concerns about those pesky lines and wrinkles that seem to have appeared overnight?
  • Have you noticed any gravitational effects on any part of your body?  
  • Have you ever felt "invisible?" Ouch! I know the feeling... it hurts, doesn't it?
  • Ever forget why you just walked into a room and wondered what you were looking for?  
  • Have you ever been a victim of ageism?
I could go on because that is just a partial list, but let's just get down to brass tacks. Believe me, I know what all of those things feel like, and I can vouch that some things about getting older really suck, some worse than others. As women and as a society, we must talk more openly about these things.  

Menopause and ageism should not be shrouded in secrecy; we need to be more prepared for these things and learn how to deal with them. Let's talk about it.

Most importantly, You also need to know and learn that there are some magnificent benefits that come along with us on our journey throughout our lives and we need to embrace and embody these powerful benefits earlier in our lives. Specifically, I'm talking about things like:
  • Self-confidence
  • Liberation from caring what others think
  • Personal fulfillment.. as only you can define it
  • Letting go of emotional baggage that has been weighing you down - for years!
  • Strength and wisdom
  • Taking more risks
  • Being a hero in your own life
Please join me if you are struggling with any part of the aging process. I promise you that this book can help you come to terms with some of these sucky things, and I also promise that you can learn to love and accept your aging body, just as it is. 

"Aging is an extraordinary process where you become the person you always should have been."~ David Bowie

"Every possible life experience and challenge were addressed. Loved your comparisons, advice, and beautiful stories. Most of all, you provided solutions that were intelligent, sassy, and soothing. It makes the reader feel like they are not alone in the way they feel at this stage of life. Your book takes the fear and unknown out of getting older. You give your readers a checklist of what to expect in this mysterious unspoken stage of life.  You have opened the door for a generation of women who now have the tools to face their aging challenges like a warrior.Very empowering. It's a beautiful story. Your choice of music brought tears to my eyes. Wonderful is all I can say."- Betsy Fleetwood"Seeing things through your words and experiences, I can identify and touch my own experiences to explore. You tell us how it was/is for you but give us the links and the gift of your experience to explore your own path.I love how you built music into this. I've read it for a second time and your book made me reflect, read the research, and earmark sections for further delving. This book rocked my world!" -Lee Nash

"I have to say I was very impressed after reading your book. At first, I thought I wouldn't be able to relate, being a 35-year-old male. I also wondered how a stranger would gain or be interested in your book. I was delightfully surprised. I found it engaging the entire time. I loved learning about your past and found your tips for life informative and interesting. It's one thing to give advice but it's a totally different thing to give great advice like you did.  Adding music selections to the book was a great touch. It also helped to keep the book light and fun.I think it's going to help a lot of people. Can't wait for the world to read."- Rob Grandy
