Welcome to the Pink Elephant Room. This isn’t a blog about drinking and hangovers or gay Republicans. Far from it! It’s a blog about the things I’ve learned from the smart women around me, and through a few trials and errors of my own.
When my mother died, I wrote a eulogy called “Lessons I learned from my mother.” Her eulogy has been shared with different groups over the years and recently a colleague of mine suggested I blog about it. And so here we are.
I’m about to turn 50. I’d be boldfaced lying if I said I’m loving every minute of middle age. The rogue chin hairs and sore knees frankly suck, and the seven dwarves of menopause – Sleepy, Cranky, Forgetful, Sweaty, Hungry, Plump and Dry – have taken up residence.
However, the Universe sweetly compensates with contentedness and ease that can only come from having had the time to absorb some good lessons. That’s what I want to share here.
I hope you’ll enjoy and share your wisdom too!
