Ageism & the Antidote

It was a normal day.  Let me back up and ask you something. Have you noticed there are less and less of normal days happening? These are what you call “everything is up for grabs” kinds of days.  The important question is how do we take advantage of these rapidly moving energies of change?
We find the antidote.
Defined as 1.  a medicine or other remedy for counteracting the effects of poison, disease, etc. or 2.  something that prevents or counteracts injurious or unwanted effects.
Well, back to my story involving that un-normal day.  Earlier at my mailbox, I retrieve some junk mail and a wrapped magazine.  I notice from the cover that it’s Better Homes and Gardens.  Thinking it must belong to one of my neighbors, I check the address label.  It has my name on it, along with this attached note.
Dear Reader.
Welcome!  I’m sorry to say the MORE Magazine will no longer be published…
But there is good news!  To thank you for your loyal readership, we’d like to treat you to Better Homes and Garden Magazine to round out the remainder of your current subscription term.  And I think you’re going to feel right at home…
I don’t think so.  Not even close.
MORE magazine wasn’t bringing in enough of the pricey advertising money that the anti-aging (turn-back-the-clock) magazines excel at.   Just because magazine moguls aren’t making enough money on the aging population, doesn’t mean we’re irrelevant and  invisible.  In fact, au contraire. The demise of MORE magazine is sending a clear message to the 78 million of us in mid-life and millions of more readership for those 70+.  The disease of Ageism strikes again!
So we continue to roll up our sleeves and re-invent things like our own magazines (it’s called AARP) and others to come.
We become the antidote.
I invite you to join myself & Dr. Elizabeth Plummer, as we slash & burn more age phobia and invite healing laughter through our Aging with Passion workshop on Sat-6/25/16 in Santa Barbara, California.
Here’s my promise:  No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Call me, if you want to attend with scholarship assistance.
If you can’t make the workshop, then sign up for my June Consultation special package offer.
Your True Self will thank you.
Sending you much love, as always.
