What Sixty Three (40-70 Year Old) Smart Women Inspired Me To Do

Mac and Porsche

Written by Terri Crosby for In Care of Relationships

I’m rarein’ to go! In a really good way! It’s all because I asked about 300 women the following question:  “If you were going hear a talk about relationships, what would it be called?”
  • who knew that so many women would answer with such gusto!  (talk about passionate answers, they fairly sizzled)
  • who knew what they would say!  (every imaginable aspect about relationships)
  • And who knew what would happen in my brain from reading their answers! (I could not have predicted that, ever)
So what happened?

I started writing a course for young women, which included a boatload of information that I wish I had known before I ventured out into the world.  From the women’s responses, I saw what we still don’t know, even after all these years, and thought, “Why not start earlier?  Why not help young women get a better beginning?” Knowing this information would have made a world of difference to me.  It has made a huge difference to the young women I’ve worked with, according to them.  (For starters, ask my 24 year old daughter.)   I’ve just never before put the information in a course that would be accessible to young women anywhere in the world. Well, all of that has changed. Below please find more content details.  Please forward to any young women (age 20-ish to 35-ish) who would appreciate this information.  Giving this information to young women sooner rather than later would be a good thing. No need for them to finally “get it” at age 55 or whatever!!!   Why not equip the young women you know with information that can send them in a more efficient direction! Here is the information, with clickable links to sign up. YES! – Young, Empowered and Smart. 7 weeks of ah-ha’s, relief, encouragement, permission and inspiration to know what you know, live like you live, say what you say, and be the person you are.  This is about that quiet and strong inner knowing you already have. When it comes fully alive in you, it turns into enthusiasm, productivity, creativity, satisfaction and it lights up your eyes. This inner knowing turns into happy fuel — to be all of who you are. This is information I wish I had known when I left home to venture out on my own. Week #1 – What Parents, School and Establishments Don’t (and can’t) TeachMac and studio friend
  • What almost nobody tells you when you’re starting out.
  • How your parents (and other significant adults in your life) taught you “invisibly,” and how did this affect you?
  • What’s natural for you?
  • Two factors that get things all messed up really fast.
  • What is suffering and what’s the antidote?
  • How to express more of who you really are – right now.
  • One simple way to be happier in a fast-moving world. This moment to moment thing you can do is life-changing.
Week #2 – Live Q and A Week #3 –– Understanding Your Built-In GPS
  • What is your inner GPS and how do you follow it?
  • How negative emotion actually helps guide you. This is a big subject, not a one-liner. If I had known this when I was twenty, my life would have been different, easier, and a lot more fun and fruitful!! We will work with real life examples. Have yours in mind and bring them to the session.
  • What’s the biggest trap regarding your intelligence or worth?
Week #4 – Live Q and A Week #5 – Love LessonsMac and John
  • The game-changer that will melt confusion and shift your ability to be more of who you are with males in any relationship, partnership or connection. This means with your father, brothers, friends, boyfriends, husband, co-workers or employees. This is a big topic and will take most of the hour.
  • Understanding “the feminine” and “the masculine” in you and others.
  • How to learn to take things less personally. (Huge!)
  • Why do we so often crash, worry, get upset, lose patience with, write off, or get offended by the opposite sex. This is important to know, no matter what kind of relationship lifestyle attracts you. Men are everywhere and it’s good to know how to get along with them, work with them understand them, and feel more confident around them.
Week #6 – Live Q and A Week #7 – Dating and Relating
  • What’s the most important thing to do before you fall in love with someone?
  • Do relationship issues feel complicated? I’ll help you clarify.  Where things have gone wonky or gotten all mumbly jumbly, I’ll help you untangle.   Bring your wadded up, uptight, yucky or confusing issues to this call (and to the Q &A following this session.)
  • One important sentence women of any age should memorize.
  • What to do when someone asks you out and you don’t want to go.
  • How to gracefully get out of a date that’s not going well. How to do this without criticism, and with dignity for both of you
  • One concept that will change dating for you in a good way. Guaranteed.
  • How we tend to evaluate our partner — what’s the measuring stick?
  • We’ll take an extra 15 minutes to answer questions, since it’s the last session of the series.
Dates/Times for YES! For Young Women: All calls are up to one hour, except the final session, which is 1-1/4 hours to include a short Q and A.
  • #1 Topic – Wednesday, October 29, at 9 am Pacific, 10 am Mountain, 11 am Central, 12 noon Eastern
  • #2 Q & A – Wednesday, November 5, at 12 noon Eastern
  • #3 Topic – Wednesday, November 12, at 12 noon Eastern

      Yes, I think my finger spazzed when I wrote 60. So I went back and changed it. It was probably, well, you know, just positive thinking or something… HA!

Rise Up by Andra Day

What a great set of words for these oncoming days.

Rise Up

 
You’re broken down and tired
Of living life on a merry go round
And you can’t find the fighter
But I see it in you so we gonna walk it out
And move mountains
We gonna walk it out
And move mountains
And I’ll rise up
I’ll rise like the day
I’ll rise up
I’ll rise unafraid
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
And I’ll rise up
High like the waves
I’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
For you
For you
For you
For you
When the silence isn’t quiet
And it feels like it’s getting hard to breathe
And I know you feel like dying
But I promise we’ll take the world to its feet
And move mountains
Bring it to its feet
And move mountains
And I’ll rise up
I’ll rise like the day
I’ll rise up
I’ll rise unafraid
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
For you
For you
For you
For you
All we need, all we need is hope
And for that we have each other
And for that we have each other
And we will rise
We will rise
We’ll rise, oh, oh
We’ll rise
I’ll rise up
Rise like the day
I’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
I will rise a thousand times again
And we’ll rise up
High like the waves
We’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
We’ll rise up
And we’ll do it a thousand times again
For you
For you
For you
For you
Ah, ah, ah, ah

Rippling Abs, Anyone?

Rippling Abs, Anyone?

During this strange time in history, I noticed y’all were tackling all sorts of interesting projects. I decided I needed one, too—something positive to remember the pandemic of 2020 by.
 
I decided to pay attention to something I had abandoned…
 
Nope, I’m not cleaning my garage. I am not organizing one single thing. I’m not planting a garden or cleaning up my yard.
 
Instead, I decided to take care of myself better. This, folks, has made all the difference for me.
 
With relatively little time and effort on my part, I feel so much better than I did a month ago.
 
On March 30, I got on the exercise bike and the yoga mat for the first time in a long time, and did 30 minutes each. I liked it so much that I decided to do it every day. But I fell short of that, and changed my commitment to every other day, which felt more manageable, reasonable, and doable.
 
I also get off the bike after every song, take a couple of sips of water, shake out my legs and arms for a few seconds, and get back on. This makes the bike project a reasonable proposition, too.
 
Daily walks of any length—by myself, or with my little guy, Jackson—are a fresh air bonus.
 
My recumbent exercise bike has pulleys to work my upper body while I pedal, which gets my heart rate up fast, and also helps my whole-body strength. It feels good to get up from writing, or doing a consulting session with a client, to do something physically challenging while listening to good music.
 
After only a month, I feel a sheet of muscles on the front of me I haven’t felt for a very, very long time. Goodness gracious. Who knew they were there. I’ll be posting rippling ab photos soon, I’m sure.
 
I have no idea what the scales have to say about my bike/yoga project—I don’t care. Paying attention to scales tends to send me sideways, and therefore, I’m ignoring them completely.
 
But—I LOVE the way I feel! Hang in there, everyone.

Check Out This Troublemaker in Relationships

Check Out This Troublemaker in Relationships

Sometimes we ask intimate partners to do for us what is actually ours to do.

We ask our partner to give us the reassurance, love or appreciation we feel is missing in ourselves, with the hope that they will give us what we’re asking for—and then we’ll feel better. They’ll take care of our problem.

But when they do give us what we’re asking for, it can never be enough, because we have insufficient context for what they’ve given. We haven’t build the inner foundation to receive it, hear it, welcome it, believe it. They try to help, but their love for us falls into our void, our black hole, our love bucket with no bottom.

As always, there’s hope. Check out the video below.
