Goodbye Winter Blues; Hello Spring Fever!

This week’s weather prediction is for temperatures to go as high as 65 degrees, possibly even more, this week! 65 degrees! That’s jacket weather…not coat weather…jacket weather! I realized I’m really restless with a severe case of Spring Fever. I’m tired of seeing my breath escape in white puffs every time I step outdoors. I’m […]

Getting into your “Flow”

I’ve mentioned before that I’m a huge fan of the Internet and Social Media. I’ve learned so many incredible and empowering things by accessing and using both of these mediums.

Retiring Supermom, Superwoman

For the last couple weeks I ran away. No, not literally, just figuratively. In other words I turned tail, headed for the hills, flew the coop, bowed out, fell behind, disengaged, and withdrew.

Did You Just Hear What You Said?

Over the last several years, I’ve assembled my own list of “Bad Words.” They’re not dirty words or curse words; in fact, they’re pretty ordinary words by most measure.

Messages from the Universe: Pay Close Attention for Yours!

We’ve all heard the expression: “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” I hope the audience of this blog immediately countered with, “Eileen, you’re NOT old!” But, sometimes I sure feel old, especially when I need to learn a new trick that has to do with anything digital! But I can – and have […]

Change is Inevitable, Change is Necessary, and Change is GOOD!

In coaching midlife women, I’m learning so much about the power of change. Whether change happens to us, or is chosen by us, change can be the starting point of miracles happening in our lives. Terry Neil wrote, “Change is a door that can only be opened from the inside.” Many years ago, in the […]

“Midlife is the old age of youth and the youth of old age.”    Proverb Welcome to Midlife and Menopause, a site about women who are about to begin or have begun the second half of their life’s journey. Entering the stage of life called midlife doesn’t happen instantaneously. It’s a gradual process and occurs […]
