Earlier this month I wrote about the changes that are happening in my blog. I talked about the new look of my blog along with my new focus. If you missed it you can read about it here.
One of the things I want for this blog is for it to be a place where we all feel free to come and express our feelings. I want to take my training and the knowledge I received as a counselor and use it to listen. I of course will not be doing any counseling here, but I will be talking "with" you and I will be giving ideas on how to live a simpler and more serene life.
With that in mind I have decided to start a weekly forum, where we as women, can come together and talk about subjects that are relevant to our lives. Some of you have shared topics that you are interested in and I have ideas of my own.
Some of the ideas are:
- needs, prospects, and outlooks for women of all ages
- the sandwich generation. Taking care of elderly parents.
- relationships with our children at all stages of their lives.
- staying active in the second half of our lives.
- grandparenting. What are our roles?
- starting new careers at any age.
- finding and maintaining serenity.
I know we can all come up with much more to discuss. We are women and that is what we do. I want your input. Please let me know what you would like to discuss. You can leave it in the comments or email me. I have a new contact form on my sidebar.
Now to the nuts and bolts. I am calling this weekly forum "Women Speak". It will take place every Tuesday and will be open to everyone. I want your input. I love your input. I hope you will invite your friends to join in. I want you to sit back, put your feet up, grab a cup of tea or coffee and join the discussion. We will officially start next week.
So, I will see you back here tomorrow and Monday (I have decided to take Sundays off. A girl's gotta rest) and then we will meet for the first "Women Speak" on Tuesday.
Have a simple and serene day.
