13 Dec A Relaunch: Welcome to Aging Unapologetically
Welcome to Aging Unapologetically. My work has expanded and my new look for the website reflects my broader focus on women, aging, and sexuality. Our sexuality, our view of ourselves as sexual beings, and the way we relate to others in intimate relationships is directly connected to how we view ourselves as older women and the way our bodies are changing. If we feel trapped by cultural ideas of aging or if we feel stuck in life we find ourselves disengaging—from our bodies, our desires and our relationships. They are all tied together and if we want to transform our lives we must be aware of the impact on each aspect of our life.
I am still going to talk about sex but I’m also going to talk about how we embrace our changing, aging selves. Our wants and desires are changing and we need new language to talk about what that means for us—for our work, our relationships, the way we go through life on a daily basis and how we want to show up in the world.
I’ve been examining my own life and confronting beliefs I held and the resulting limitations. I started thinking several years ago about expanding my life—seeing the world, releasing my thoughts about being single as a failure. Letting go of expectations and creating new adventures for myself. In the process it became clear to me that aging unapologetically a good name for what I want to do. I think many of you do as well. Aren’t we searching for ways to live a life that reflects our own desires not those imposed on us by an ageist society
My life over the last several years has been a process of discovery and letting go and rebuilding. Transforming. I’ve learned how to tap into my wants and needs, to make better choices and to listen to my intuition. My relationships are stronger, and my comfort with my current life and my body is as strong as it’s been in decades. I want the same for you.
I will still be writing while focusing on a course offering starting in January 2019 and doing more speaking engagements. I love connecting with women, online, or in person. So, I hope to do more of that—and if you have a group you think I’d be a good fit for drop me a note. You can see a bit more about my speaking work here
So take a look and sign-up if you’re not already getting my newsletter–you’ll find that link on the home page. Very soon I’ll be announcing my Mastermind course starting in January—the Art of Aging Unapologetically.
The back story: Just as Emma and I were finalizing the details for my website look I was hacked! And it led to me getting blacklisted by Google and all kinds of chaos. Fortunately we had backups of most of the files. My new webmasters were able to recover the old articles, but not the images. As for my standing with Google and the internet? That will take a while. It has been a lesson in being unattached and learning to let go. The site is not perfect (in that I still have to manually choose and add images to each of the 100+ articles I’ve written), but when is anything ever perfect? I’m relaunching now because I simply can’t wait any longer. there’s work to be done and attitudes to change and transformations waiting to be revealed.
