Welcome to my blog! :o)
I’m so excited to share my thoughts and ideas with you!
Since this is my introductory blog, I’d like to share with you how this site got started and what I’m all about, as it will be the basis for the forthcoming blogs. It’s a bit long, but please take a few minutes to read it.
My goal is to not only help eliminate limiting thinking about “middle age”, but to also provide steps and processes to assist in making that change. In addition, I have information on other topics including nutrition, fitness, natural healing and all other aspects I feel are necessary to provide a great life in middle age and beyond.
I created this Website when I was 72. I was past the phase we call “middle age”, but to be honest, I have never felt I entered it. Even today, when I think of some project or goal, I say to myself “Well, I’m still young, so I can do that”. I still feel as I did when I was in my 30’s and generally my health and fitness reflects that. This is a direct result of my attitude and of the behavior that this attitude engenders.
And so I have decided to create a Website to pass on to you what I’ve learned over the past 50 years so that you and others can create lives for themselves that are fulfilling and joyous.
“It all started when…”
This really all started when I was a teenager. When I was in high school, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do for college, so my father sent me to a prominent university to be tested to find out what I was suited for. Unfortunately for him, the tests showed that I could do anything I was drawn to, and they also showed my intelligence to be in the top 1% of the world, revealing my potential to succeed at anything I tried.
With my not having any clear direction, my dad suggested I go to chiropractic college. Although I wasn’t excited about it, it seemed a good choice at the time. I wound up spending 4 years there, but I finally lost my desire and left only a few months before I graduated. In the meantime, however, I learned a lot about the body and natural health and healing.
Helping 500,000 People
Fast forward 20 years, to when I created a magazine for natural health and healing, personal growth, and other related topics. It wound up being highly successful and had the largest circulation of any publication of its type, with more than 500,000 readers. I sold that magazine after 10 years, and got involved with the Internet. And that lead me here.
For the past 50+ years, I have used my gift of a sharp mind and my desire to always know more, to learn and apply many ways to be healthy and happy. Now, at age 72, I feel that it’s time for me to share my knowledge with the world, and I thus created this Website.
I truly hope that you will take advantage of my efforts and utilize their results to “make the rest of your life the best of your life”.
See you next blog!
