Change is Hard

Einstein once said:  "If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got"........simple yet profound!

Change is Possible

The crux of change is taking personal responsibility.  Identifying what we are and are not responsible for is an important part of the change process.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it,  move with it, and join the dance.

Supporting Aging Parents

One eternal truth is that everyone ages.  Some folks are fortunate enough to live independently without outside support, to a ripe old age. 

When you think of retirement, what comes to mind?  Relaxing on a white, sandy beach?  Or travelling the world?  Many people have prepared financially for their retirement and as long as their health allows, will be fortunate enough to fulfill some of these dreams.
