About Me

Hi!  My name is Denise and I am on the younger side of the baby boomers (mid 40’s).  I am by nature a questioner, a learner, an explorer, and a challenger.  Having been gifted with these traits, I have always been the curious sort and have sought to find the answers to the “whys” of my life.  A big one for me has always been, “why do good things always seem to happen to others and not me,”  Well, I believe I have discovered the answer to that question.  For me personally, it has been a matter of changing my mind and changing my attitude along with a few behavior adjustments.  I am not an Einstein nor a Newton but I am reasonably intelligent and I trust in results, not just theories.  My purpose for writing this blog is to share with others the things that I have learned that have helped me to create a happier and more successful life.  I encourage you to try the strategies that I will write about and experience a better life for yourself.

Wishing you much happiness and success!


  1. So true, so true. I too am on a journey in the second-half of life.

  2. You might want to check out my blog The Second Phase where I write more specifically about Baby Boomer topics.

    Isn’t getting older great (except for the wrinkles)!

  3. Toni, I have added your blog to my blogroll from The Second Phase. I think readers who come to my blog will also enjoy yours. Good luck and have fun with it!

  11. Inspirational site Denise. Congratulations.
    Best wishes


    • Thank you Maureen! I consider it a labor of love.
      Thanks for visiit. I hope to see you here again!


  12. Hi Denise, just wanted to say that I liked your site. It first caught my eye because we both choose the same template, then I realized based on the content that we had even more in common…

    Best regards, John


    • Thanks for stopping by John. I always find it interesting when I come across other blogs with the same template and similar content. I don’t believe it’s a coincidence. I believe that we are drawn to people of like-energy.

      You’ve got a great blog started. I’ve added you to my blogroll to help direct some traffic your way.

      I look forward to reading more from you!


  13. Thanks Denise. I would definately agree with you on that point. I plan on reading more from you when I have some time to grab a cup of coffee and relax!

    Take care,


  14. Hi Denise
    Don’t you just love blogging?

    I am having a wander around the wordpress blogs and stopped here for a good read … will rss you and put you on my blog roll.

    Today I did what some people would think is crazy … I posted my Life Dreaming workbook for free to all my readers.

    I wrote it a while ago and am self publishing it this year and decided to share the (nearly) final draft with all the people who visit me.

    I’m letting other blogs that write about positive and sustainable living know about the Life Dreaming workbook … and they can share it for free with their readers.

    I’m interested to see what happens when I just let go of something and send it out.

    Sending you big wishes for a great 2009 and look forward to reading you over the year.

    Best regards

  15. Thanks for stopping by Liz and adding me to your blogroll. I will do likewise for you.

    I had a chance to check out your Life Dreaming workbook. Very nicely done!

    Best wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous year for you also!
