Stop the Madness–Exercise and “Our” Hair

I wrote this article some years ago, and decided it was time to pull it out of the vault. As a woman of a certain age, a woman who is a mother, a woman who is African American and a woman who is an educator I wanted to write one about “our” hair and “exercise”. Since I’ve read negative things online lately about the Olympians, I thought it would be nice to revisit this article. Take a moment and enjoy and reflect. Remember “thisisyourbestyear”, and for those in the Olympics “thisistheirbestyear”. Be proud and be silent–it can be “Golden”.

This is my best year ever, and it can be yours too. When I turned 40, I thought it was the end of life as I knew it. When I turned 50, I knew it was the end. It was the end, the end of that year--nothing more and nothing less. I've retired, gone to another career, started a business, and have kept writing. I've taken classes including glass blowing, swing dancing and so much more. I'm making each year, my best year.

  1. On Time & On Target,Great re-visit!!! What foolishness about “Gabby’s”’s a young girl trying hard to obtain “Success” through “persistent determination” and love of God..and people of lesser minds_ if a mind at all_can only see her hair! I was always taught in the Piney Woods of Texas_that “If you didn’t have something nice to say about a person,say nothing”!
