  1. Reinventing Your Life Over 50 the French Way : Part Three Downsizing

    Comment
    Article by Meredith Keeve a.k.a. The Wandering Parisian   RIGHTSIZING…and learning to live in smaller spaces   In a sense, many French women have a head start, they have been living in tiny Parisian apartments and thus have managed to avoid accumulating too much. But for those of us who lived in houses (as I did in North America for over a decade) the luxury of space meant the luxury of acquisition and now, as they say in museum-speak we must de-acquisition. If you are so inclined Marie Kondo and her Konmari method is everywhere in books, on television and on youtube. If she is not your cup of tea there are other organizational methods, numerous books and articles…. But, if you cannot be bothered...
  2. Reinventing Your Life Over 50 the French Way: Part Two – Moving Forward

    Comment
    Article by Meredith Keeve a.k.a the Wandering Parisian   Freedom of choice/Le bon choix Discernment has long been my favorite adjective to describe French lifestyle and culture. Reflecting then selecting is the operative way to move forward in all of your decision-making processes at this point. If we think about lifestyle as a series of choices we pare things down to their essentials. What do you want your lifestyle to be? What do you want your life to look like? Many people at this stage of life dream of traveling – whether that means exotic adventures in Borneo, or wandering through museums in Florence or simply sitting by a turquoise sea – if that is truly your dream and your desire then what choices...
  3. Reinventing Yourself Over 50 – The French Way: Part One

    Comment
    Article by Meredith Keeve a.k.a. The Wandering Parisian   France, and particularly French women – of a certain age – give us valuable insight, and set useful examples of how to tackle the health, wealth or emotional challenges of the years ahead.   French culture is very strong, and French history an important factor in French life, and this history includes a very rugged streak of individualism, a kind of refusal to accept, a desire to fight for the things you believe in (welcome to the strikes we all know about!). France’s most iconic women from Simone de Beauvoir to Catherine Deneuve or Jeanne Moreau have all been completely independent thinkers, each one – in a sense – happily selfish, making sure her choices...
  4. The 7 Most Important Things for Achieving Goals and Resolutions

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon It’s the time of year when we set our New Year’s resolutions – but how often do we achieve those goals that we set for ourselves? Goals have the power to shape your future. But most people don’t have a good understanding of how to achieve goals. Consequently, most never even set goals. Understanding what it takes to achieve a goal will greatly enhance your odds of success. Consider these ideas: A proper goal. Most people don’t have goals to begin with. Those that do have goals often have goals that are ineffective. You can’t achieve a goal without having a goal. Avoid setting goals that don’t excite you. What’s the point? It’s easier to achieve a goal that you find motivating. A clear conclusion. How will you...

  6. 6 Reasons Why Volunteering at A Senior’s Home Benefits Students

    Comment
    There have been tremendous benefits for student volunteers and residents when students volunteer to work with the elderly. We all remember the days when we finished school . The world was our playground and we had so many ideas about how we were going to change it for the better. It didn’t take too long for us to realize that changing the world doesn’t happen overnight. As we live longer, and the generation gap gets wider, then all students should be encouraged to  visit a Senior’s home from time to time. The oldest generation in society has been around the block a few times and have even  forgotten some of the lessons that the younger generation still needs to learn. The older generation could write volumes. You wouldn’t...
