    When Perspective Outranks Attitude

    When Perspective Outranks Attitude

    Welcome to episode 8 of Positively Life After Fifty, and Day 2 in my quest to podcast for 30 days straight, #NaPodPoMo. It's been a rocky start to my challenge, but the work will get done, the problems either will get solved or they won't, and ill find a way to make it work somehow. What's more important is that you make time for friends, take time for family, and carve out some time for yourself, to regain a sense of balance and perspective.

    Feel like a challenge? I do! No, I'm not running a marathon or climbing a mountain, but I might as well be.

    A Bucket List That's Good for You -Episode 5

    A Bucket List That's Good for You -Episode 5

    This episode shares motivational stories to help you create a bucket list that can change your life.Today I take a look at the surprising history of "The Bucket List," talk about the benefits of those travel items on your list and share some inspirational stories to help you re-create your own life-changing list. Have you given much thought to your bucket list lately? You should; it's good for you. A quick search and you will find the awesome things people have on their lists; from exotic destinations to simple acts of selflessness. "The Bucket List" became a standard in American culture in 2007 when a movie of the same name was released. Did the term "Kicking the Bucket" come from a children's game or a method of execution(!?!) The benefits of having travel items on your bucket list include mental, physical, social and financial. Here's a list of motivational speakers that may forever change the way you think about a bucket list:
    Ryan Eller, Motivational speaker and blogger, ryaneller.com "How a Bucket List Saved My Life" TEDx Tulsa Kathleen Taylor, "Rethinking the Bucket List" TEDx Tampa Bay Kathleen is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with 20 years experience in hospice and advanced care planning. She has a coaching and consulting practice serving the healthcare, social service, and nonprofit sectors. Edward Readiker-Henderson,  "Kill Your Bucket List" TEDx Maui talk Edward was an award-winning travel writer and traveled to over fifty countries and all the continents.  He is quoted as saying,"Whoever created the world went to a lot of trouble. It would be downright rude not to go out and see as much of it as possible." The Joy of a "Wonder List" Maybe you think your life is just too busy even to consider taking that trip right now. Don't worry about your to-do list, or that time is running out to visit all the places you hope to see and memories you hope to make. Sometimes the best moments are unscripted. One"wonder moment" I had on a trip with my family became a treasured memory for me, and an "I wonder" moment blessed me with a life-long friend from the other side of the world. Mark Twain quotes: "Don't wait; the time will never be just right." "Give every day the chance to become the most beautiful day of your life.' **Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. Psalm 90:12

Rock Your Retirement Show ,

Solid Information.

I really like the way Connie gave some actionable advice (take the personality quiz and gave the free site to do it) She has good content and it's obvious that she cares about her listeners. I've had a show for over a year and it took me a lot longer to get my content and my audio style to the level that she has. Kudos to Connie. I'll be listening.
