Growing Bolder

One of my favorite PBS shows is called Growing Bolder. 

It is ā€œa team of award-winning journalists, broadcasters and creatives all focused on sharing the inspirational stories of ordinary people living extraordinary lives ā€“ men and women who are redefining the possibilities of life after 50.ā€ 

When I turned 50, I decided to stop coloring my hair. I had been covering white and silver hair since my late twenties. Stopping was the best decision I ever made. I only wish Iā€™d done it sooner. 

Ageism is alive and well in our society, so going natural feels like a rebellious act. And that fits me perfectly.

The Importance of Play

Play comes easy when we are children. But when we become adults, play has to be a conscious choice – and an important one.

Adulthood brings responsibilities and stresses that we never imagined in our younger days. For a lot of us, that means a complete disconnect from all the things that brought us joy in our youth.

But making play a part of our adult life is essential for our overall well-being. We must reconnect with those activities that brought us pleasure back in the day.

For my husband, that is playing disc golf. I love this photo of him teeing off because this is his fun zone. He earned the name Captain Comet from his buddies – the man has skills.
