  1. Best Knickers Always: 50 Lessons for Midlife

    1
    Article by Rebecca Perkins. Coach Rebecca Perkins shares her personal journey that led her to write her book, Best KnickersAlways: 50 Lessons for Midlife Life isn’t always (and let’s be honest never will be) sunshine and roses, and living in a perpetual state of nirvana would probably become stifling and boring. By the time we’ve reached midlife we’ve all faced our challenges—some of us more than others and some of us more than our fair share. Courage and resilience, however, come from our ability to get back up again after we’ve tripped and fallen over life’s obstacle course. Getting back up again is a choice. We always have that choice. So, we get to midlife and we face transition. Those of us who are parents come to realise that our children do not...
  2. Passion or passion?

    9
    Article by Sharon Eden, the Passion Whisperer I bet that when you think of passion, certain associations come into your mind.  Like sex, being angry, ‘mad’, and/or going off the rails.  That’s because Passion and passion have both traditionally got bad press.  Ok… end of confusion! Passion with a big P refers to your essential life energy geyser, the creative life force in you from which everything flows… including your emotions.  Most importantly, it motivates you to be creative in your life.  Anything from baking cakes to rearing children, from writing an essay to works of art, from finding more efficient ways of doing your work to develop yourself as a fab-after-fifty-woman… and an infinite number of things in between! Passion with a small p refers to those things you love to...
  3. Without Passion you have nothing!

    5
    Introducing Sharon Eden – the Passion Whisperer As Donald Trump once said, “Without Passion you have no energy.  Without energy you have nothing.” So, think about your own life and remember a time when you were feeling down and lifeless.  I bet you felt you couldn’t be bothered and certainly were not up for adventures and who-knows-what-you-might-discover.  Just see yourself in that time in your life…. and if you had a colour to symbolise that time, what colour comes to mind? Now, with a swift wriggle of your body, or a clap of your hands, get rid of those glooopy feelings because it’s time to change the scene. Remember a time in your life when you were enthusiastic Now remember a time in your life when you felt enthusiastic, on...

  5. Introducing Ntathu’s Monday Morning Moments of Calm

    2
    Article by Ntathu Allen Bless you Gentle Reader and Welcome to your first Monday Morning Moments of Calm. I’m so glad you are here, taking time out of your busy schedule to read what’s on offer. Hi, I’m Ntathu Allen I was delighted and honoured when  Ceri asked me to join FabafterFity as your Inner Well Being/Meditation Expert. Not sure if I would call myself an “expert” yet I’m thrilled –and nervous—to be here. A Bit About Ntathu – Who Am I? For as long as I can remember writing has formed a core of my personal journey . Through a series of unhappy “life situations” including the untimely early deaths of my dear brother John  (1997) and close cousin Sherry (1995) I found meditation. Like you, I’ve had my fair share of...
  6. 10 Top Tips to Keep Positive

    3
    Article by Dr Lynda Shaw Learn to accept the past, view any negative experiences as history, there is nothing you can do to change them now. Learn from your mistakes so as to avoid repeating them. Do not feel pressurized into situations you are uncomfortable with, or where you may be compromised – be assertive, stand up for yourself and trust yourself to be doing it for the right reasons. Keep things simple, we have a tendency to overcomplicate issues, worrying unnecessarily and meandering off topic, try to keep everything in perspective. Build on your strengths, identify situations you know you can excel in and apply yourself to these. Strive to be ambitious, everybody needs goals in life so set yourself some, the bigger the better,...
  7. Ten tips to help you make better decisions

    Comment
    Article by David Wethey – author of DECIDE Hopefully my own graduation to the next stage (Sage after Sixty?) gives me a degree of credibility on your excellent site, Fab After Fifty. Of course it’s a good time to be experienced and worldly wise. We all have the chance to be fitter, healthier and smarter than the generations before us. But we still need some guidelines to make those important decisions which will make all the difference. Here are my ten best tips: 1. Write it down Most of us make lists. However lively we are feeling, it is just so easy to forget things, and our ‘to do’ lists keep us on track. It is the same with making decisions. Deciding is a process and...
  8. Is setting goals more effective than making New Year Resolutions to achieve success

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon I have spent so many years making resolutions, only to have most fall by the wayside before we even hit mid January. Most of my resolutions seems to consist of doing ‘less’ of something – such as eating, or doing ‘more’ of things such as exercise. All a bit vague. Setting goals So this year I am setting concrete goals and not making resolutions. Last year I looked to do similar, but my career and personal goals took a back seat to renovating a new home, which although much loved by its previous owner, had been mostly untouched for nearly 50 years. So now, with renovations complete, I can focus on real life. So this year I am starting with a list of goals,...
  9. Don’t let your age limit your possibilities in life – limiting beliefs explained

    Comment
    Article by Priscilla Elliott There is a great saying by Henry Ford……“Whether you think you can or you can’t, you are right”! That statement is absolutely true because whatever you believe – IS! If you think you are too old to enjoy your life, too old to make something of your life, missed your chance in life and now too old or believe that you can’t go for that job or start your own business because you are too old…….that is your “belief system” kicking in! Your belief system resides in your “subconscious” (below your conscious awareness – in other words, it’s automatic and what you have always known).  Your belief system contains a number of “limiting beliefs” which are extremely powerful!  In fact,...
  10. Step Out and Master Your Life One Step at a Time!

    Comment
    Article By Kathy Andersen Have you ever thought there is more to life, yet you haven’t quite been able to put your finger on what that “something more” is? Well, it’s easier than you think. In fact, it is just a step away. We all know Lao Tzu’s saying “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Today, in our over busy, super-fast, technology-filled world, those words are more true than ever. Why? Because in our busyness and our desire to take multiple leaps and bounds as quickly as we can, we often leap over the single step right in front of us that can take us in the “right” direction. Instead, we leap into many directions that simply expend us, rather than expand us. We miss the opportunity to pause in our step...
