One of the best pieces of advice I've heard over the years of doing this blog was from Maria Shriver … about the importance of not comparing ourselves to others. At a conference she said that the one message she wanted to give women is that "no one person's path is better than another's." As a 20-something, there is so much pressure to find a path and then measure yourself by that path – from getting a ... keep reading...

              My 20s were all about what I didn’t have, what I could have, what I needed to have. And now it is more about 'wow, I’m so lucky'. I constantly feel grateful for what I do have and it gives me such a different view on life. I wish I had believed more in my strengths. The world can be a competitive place so there is always someone who doing more…someone who is prettier, thinner, smarter, wealthier. It’s very easy ... keep reading...

Dear 20-somethings, Don’t lie about your age. No good comes from it. I always got the sense that the whole “40 is the new 20” thing was because a lot more women used to lie about their age. So when a 50-year-old said she was 40 –that’s what our perception of 40 was. But when Demi Moore said I am 40…everyone started saying hey – look what 40 looks like. Of course she may have had ... keep reading...

Sometimes you surprise yourself. The good times are the times you realize you are stronger than you thought you were. There are the body wins. When you find yourself at the top of a chairlift on a black diamond run when you thought it was going to be your first blue run. And you make it down. You have no other choice. It may be slow. It will be scary. Your heart is beating a million ... keep reading...

A beautiful birthday reflection from a a 40-something... ~ Turned 42 last week. Feels okay…suits me, in fact. Nice even number matches up nicely with the earned creases around my eyes, the still taut tummy and an increasing ability to care less about both. I remember when I was 12 or so…looking at my mom, who was then 42, and thinking she was the coolest, smartest, most real and beautiful woman I had ever seen. I thought if ... keep reading...

  One of the things you know at 40-something is that for every down there is an up. You have been through some tough downs…at the time they seem the end of the world. But you do have the strength to make it through to the other side. You are resilient. ... "You are stronger than you think you are. You really are. Just think back on all the things that you've been through that you have made ... keep reading...
