Yoga At Sundance Square

The YMCA of Fort Worth and Sundance Square holds free yoga classes every other Saturday at Sundance Square. It was a beautiful day to hang out with friends and get a little exercise.

As women of a certain age, we must keep our flexibility, and doing yoga is a good way to do it. Doing different types of exercising also helps to keep us motivated.

Remember “thisisyourbestyear”.

Dallas Small Business Expo–Expand Your Horizon

Expanding your horizon is something that we all should do. No, I do not own a business neither large or small. I still wanted to attend this business expo for several reasons.

As a woman of a certain age I wear many hats, and I am many things to many people.  I knew that attending this expo with the owner of Ageless  Perfection Skin Care.  I would have fun. While having fun I learned some things that I needed to know about marketing this blog plus other endeavors.

Attending this expo gave me valuable information on deals on business cards, websites and more. While there I was able to get supplemental material and books for my classes that I teach at Tarrant County College.  I was able to network and talk with people about “thisisyourbestyear”.  I met so many “women of a certain age” who owned their own businesses. It was exciting to be in the room with so many entrepreneurs.

Expand your horizon.  Remember “thisisyourbestyear”.

Instinct–The Power to Unleash Your Inborn Drive

On a beautiful Sunday morning after sending my tithes to my home church, my friend and I were off to The Potter’s House of Dallas for “Instinct Sunday”. Bishop T. D. Jakes was giving a sermon on “your” instinct, and how to listen to it. The sermon did not disappoint. It held something for all ages. My sisters of a certain age, he did not leave us out. His sermon came partly from his new book “Instinct–The Power to Unleash Your Inborn Drive”.  It’s not really a self-help book, nor is it a motivational book.  It is a book about what we all have–INSTINCT.

Bishop Jakes continued his message on “Instinct” and transformation on Oprah’s Lifeclass where he brought it home to the “women of a certain age”. I invite all of you to find this episode–it resonated with me. Remember, I’ve told you that I don’t have a bucket list, I have an I’m gonna do list.

One of my favorite quotes from the book “Instinct” comes from chapter 17 (Instinctive Relationships). I remember my mother telling me something similar. The quote is:  If you network only with people who do what you do and have what you have, then there’s no intersection of variations. You might make a nice mop or wig, but you won’t have a net that benefits the world! Networks are built on strands that cross lines and make connections in spite of facing different directions or diverse perspectives”.

This quote goes along with the saying that I gave you about the 6 girlfriends–we need to get out there and hang out with people other than those that are just like us.

I think this book can be a single read, book club read or a supplement to a class. It is a book about all of us.

Below are pictures of Bishop Jakes and “Instinct Sunday”.

Bishop Jakes concluded his sermon by telling the congregation that we need to ROAR after listening to our “Instinct”, and take charge of our lives. I hope that we will begin to ROAR as we remember “thisis(our)yourbestyear”.

You can view Bishop Jakes on Oprah’s Lifeclass on the OWN Network. He is doing 3 parts. If you miss these episodes, you may be able to find them On Demand. The book is In bookstores on May 6. You can also order from the Potter’s House on their website.
