Sage Women


Reading blogs can be so interesting. Picking up dribs and drabs of information from young, middle aged and older women is really eye opening! Anyone desiring the  secret to aging with style should check out   Advanced Style Blog. The other day I read advice from a 99 year old woman! Spectacular really! "Be more, appear less," great advice, along with staying organized. Which I've let fall by the wayside lately!  I agree having your own scent, and being unique is important too! 

Brand new moms tend to  spark memories, of the work and vulnerability I felt when my daughter was a newborn.  No one is ever prepared for the love they feel, or time and sleep they lose with a new baby! There are women setting goals, making vision boards,  while trying to find their true path. Ones fearful of being forty, ones searching for hobbies, others in the throws of self discovery, many in menopause. So many interesting stories!

Doesn't matter how old we are we never stop learning. Technology and life changes faster than we can learn it all! We'll never be able to read all the books published, or listen to  all the music written, however we can carve out our own little niche of things to enjoy, wisdom to carry and share if we choose. Above all if we find a few things we love to do, we have it made!! Chasing goals is lovely, for me the  journey is where the joy resides!

I think we learn something new every day. A couple of years ago I did a daily end of day thing on what I learned. It's amazing. Great post.

Oh, so true! I'm loving your drawings with Scribbler - I've been playing around with it but have produced nada. :)

Hi Giggles. I have to tell you that I visited the blogsite and fell completely in love with the blog. I decided to add it to my list and even passed it on to a few of my bloggie friends. I think it's great that someone is acknowledging the "sage" people as you say. Thanks for turning me on to the site.

Advanced Style is such a cool blog. I've been reading it for several months.

I hope I never stop learning. That's what keeps me going.

Loving the scribbler drawings. They have so much character. I learn so much from other peoples blogs. I don't know what I'd do without them now.

Hello Giggles and thank you for visiting me! I loved reading the 98 year old words. My owm mum will be 90 next year so I shall have to write a piece about the importance of jelly babies and gin and tonic to keep you young!

I can find all the interesting things online a bit overwhelming sometimes but as long as we can be inspired then it's all good! Love your sage ladies!xx

Your quote for the day hits home. I'm not a morning person, so if I can be pleasant till 10 AM, I DO have it made!

I agree that if we keep our minds open, we learn something every day. I even learn from my children and my students. I'm gonna have to check out that older woman's blog. I bet she's got a lot of good things to say!
