  1. Lesley’s Journey

    Comment
    Article by Lesley As she approaches 60, Lesley sets herself some special goals and shares her journey with us Hi. My name is Lesley and I am 57 (and a half) years of age. I hesitate to say 57 years old – because I’m not – old that is. I am twice divorced, and the last ex left me with massive debt that I can never hope to repay. Two and a half years ago I was made redundant and as a result of that and the economic downturn I now earn half what I used to as a Finance Manager. In two and a half years time will be 60. Let me tell you what I am aiming for. I am planning to go to New York for a few days – alone if there...
  2. Could the Firewalk Change Your Life?

    Comment
    Article by Lindsey Agness  Imagine a stunning retreat called Lendrick Lodge at the side of a loch and crisp frosty weather and you start to get close to the setting for our firewalk last weekend. Take yourself back to the moment you walked on fire  The firewalk is an amazing metaphor for change.  If you take something that you used to believe was impossible and you do it then you reframe all the other challenges in your life that you believe are impossible.  It’s also a great resource anchor when you need to dig deep inside yourself to deal with a tough scenario.  You take yourself back to the moment you walked on fire and think to yourself ‘If I can walk on fire I can deal with this challenging conversation with...
  3. Sex and the Sidalceas

      Article by Penny Thornton I had a dream. Actually, it was not so much a dream as a disembodied voice whispering in my ear as I lurched into wakefulness one early autumn morning. “Mr Osaka is tending your garden”, it said. So, Mr Osaka is tending my garden. I thought my herbaceous borders were being looked after by Susie Bower. Who might Mr. Osaka be? Later that day I remembered that Osaka was a city in Japan, a cultural capital and proud host of the Maishima Sludge Centre, for the centralization and efficient treatment of sewage. Still no illumination. I’ve never been to Japan, don’t even have a yen to go, even to see the mysterious Mr. Osaka. But the voice kept insinuating itself on and off all...
  4. Broaden Horizons Midlife- Getting Involved in Charity Projects

    Comment
    Article by Fabafterfifty Sometimes we want to do more in our spare time than take up hobbies or relaxing holidays in the sun. For many women reaching their 50s can also mean having time for themselves for the first time in years, and the opportunity to get involved in fund raising project. We featured Rosy Holt in our ‘Fabwoman’ section earlier this year. A lot of readers have been asking how Rosy got on in her trip to Tanzania , so here we have an update. In late September Rosy Holt , with fellow  members of her ladies networking group Julia Sondack and Theresa Bowman and other business networkers set off on a charity project organised by Childreach International to renovate a very need, rural nursery school in...
  5. Rock Choir- how Singing Changed my Life

    Article by Jessica Chivers- The Thinking Woman’s Coach  Watching Judi in action as part of the largest, most popular contemporary choir in the world you would never guess she doesn’t always feel so bright and bubbly. “Rock Choir is the only time I don’t worry,” Judi muses as she reflects on what it is that makes the Surrey based pop, gospel and Motown choir the highlight of her week. Judi is 60 and her 27-year old daughter works as a volunteer in the West Bank and Gaza Strip which Judi says is a constant worry. In her early fifties Judi’s life changed completely as her kids left home and she divorced and  she says, “I was determined not to sit around thinking ‘poor me’ so instead I started discovering new...
