This is a blog for all of us to create a better tomorrow. If my post strikes a chord with you, please share your comment. Our conversations here will strengthen our lives.
All the talk about the fiscal abyss and the possible threats to Social Security made me realize how vulnerable most of us are, especially seniors who stand to lose part of their basic (and often the only) means of survival. Because women tend to live longer than men our vulnerability will last longer.
Overall not much has changed in our favor since I wrote my book, Showing Up For The Golden Years, although it is clear that vulnerability is not a woman’s prerogative anymore. Everybody’s rock bottom is shifting. The political and financial climates have an effect on all of us, but it shouldn’t mute us. We have the freedom to improvise and invent out-of-the-box solutions to secure basic safety, food, shelter, and care in life. Quality of life is a very subjective notion and therefore we each are responsible for our own.
