Getting Older with Grace

Today, I’m 60 years and 1 day old. I never thought I’d be here, but I stand almost erect, a little creaky in the bones, but my heart brave, my mind keen, and I’m still learning something new every day. However, what keeps me feeling young and getting older with grace? 

Getting Older with Grace

My mantra has been “Every Day Is My Encore Career!” Getting older gracefully comes from planning life with a clear mind, emptied of poisonous fear.

Yes, at 55, I moved to Florida to be nearer my family (Mom, four sisters and their families) and I’ve never looked back. When I arrived in Pembroke Pines, I decided to take the money I earned from the sale of my house and live a year without care, taking classes, reaching for the stars, and letting God and the wind take me on a beautiful journey of trust. 

Was all of it good? 

From my perspective, now, absolutely. I’ll tell you why.


Getting Older with Grace

As a Practitioner of Hypnotherapy

When you decide to let go of the past and face life with ferocity and fearlessness, you also recognize that each day is a chance to change old thinking, believe that this world needs your particular and unique voice, that passion is met with praise, and the story in your mind always builds your future story in body!

60 is a number, as is 20 and 70 and 90. We can’t live by numbers. We must live by our authentic self leading the way. So what if you have to change your entire life to make that happen. 

After leaving a successful hypnosis and teaching practice of 30 years in Nashville, I decided to pack up the security and get back to the passions of my early years. 

I realized that I had stopped pursuing my passion, because I was worried about money and lack. Fear has never led a person into power and grace. Fear ages you. Fear makes your mind feeble. Fear encourages you to stay in the past, where once you may have been safe. I decided to find the pathway out of fear, by facing it.

I moved to South Florida where hurricanes were a plenty. I moved from Nashville, where I was fairly safe from catastrophic fires and storms. Now as the Earth is changing, I feel as if I left the fury of the Earth’s tears and entered a land of peace.  Every storm has passed us since I’ve been here. I’m not saying this premise will continue. But, I’m not afraid either. Earth changes are hitting everywhere, but I moved into the storm to find peace.

I decided to study Spanish almost immediately when I moved here. Now, I’m nearly fluent. I study almost every day for about 2 hours. I love learning something new every day—about another culture, about another land—and I feel as if I have embraced a new tribe. I’m grafted into their lives by just reaching forward with my mind. Just an aside: I had trouble memorizing 2 lines of a commercial when I got here. Now I have an entire language in my brain. Limitation and thoughts of not being able to accomplish learning never entered my mind. Learning opens your mind to greater good.

I let go of my old “go to’s” to find a thriving acting career in film and commercials. I went to college for theater and left it early on. Last year I booked 16 gigs, which is a lot for this market. Every time I did, I had an amazing time, met new people, and felt as if I was the king of my life.

I sing every week for pay. I got a job where I could exercise my voice, not just my singing voice, but the voice of being heard. I use this voice in more than just singing. I speak my ideas now without fear.

On top of all of these career changes, I have opened a new hypnosis on office in a beautiful and opulent area of Fort Lauderdale, where my business is growing beautifully. I had loved this part of my life in the past more than you can know. Rekindling in this space of a new me has been an honor. I get to embrace it again with new ideas and a new breath of healing in my soul, where I’m certainly not afraid to express every spiritual gift I have. 

In the category of Love, the biggest change has been with friends and family. 

I was single when I moved here. I had made every mistake possible in relationships. I decided I’d take a year off and prepare my soul for what I wanted to do next in relationship. I made a vision board with the attribute I wanted to attract Then, I proceed to become each attribute. I prayed for the soul that I would meet by becoming that soul.  I didn’t want anything from the past. I didn’t need a Greek God. I wanted someone who could take my hand and gently but lovingly stand beside me as I aged. And from across the ocean, he found me, literally and figuratively. 

Lastly, family had always been one of those things that I would take in bitefuls. Now, I fully embrace the blood born love that sustains me and believes in me more than I could have ever imagined. When I’m with them, I always as if I’m among friends who can laugh about the past and encourage each other to make for better futures. 

As for friends, I’ve slowly made loving connections in Florida and reconnected to the loving souls I moved away from. I don’t hold on tightly anymore to friendship. I let friends flow in and out of my life like the tide. This has benefited me greatly, as I had always valued friendship over anything. Now, though I believe that still, I let friendship have its own life, and tag along once in awhile, instead of attaching myself to friendship like a leach. 

These are my aging secrets. I hope they helped.

Your life is a miracle. The fact that anything exists here is divine. When you recognize this, you will not be hampered by any struggle around you. You’ll be compassionate, loving, and experience all the power of the One Infinite Love. But, you will never be alone, nor will you be worried about the future. 


The purpose of this blog is to realize that the stories in the brain are impulses from Spirit to help us heal, if we are willing to take the time to understand our own pain. Most of us want to avoid it. But, if you are tired of reliving your stories over and over again, try learning to become the observer of your mind. Restore and Renew Your Mind.


With 31 years of experience and a new, great office in beautiful Fort Lauderdale, Hypnosis on Las Olas creates a clear path to health and prosperity for many people in South Florida. I will help put you on the road to peace of mind and keep you there, so that you may rewrite your prosperous story daily and learn the True Meaning of Healing: “Your New Story, Your New Life.”


When Healing Flows like Living Water through your being, you’ll notice you feel led and connected, sleep better, your mind stays affixed on positive things, and you’ll even want to cook better, healthier food to protect your body. Are you looking for help with anxiety or are you bored at home. 

Try this yoga practice below on YouTube I made just for this purpose or give me a call for a 10 minute consultation. I’d love to work through your stress at this time with you. 

The process is so simple, it doesn’t make sense that it could result in such a vast change in mind. You could do some seated yoga. I actually made 3 different yoga videos on YouTube you could go to now and enjoy how great you’ll feel if you spend just a little time getting your body free of stress. But, I can’t do it for you. This article about it can make you do it. You  must be a self-started at home, as well as work. Set your mind to a clear schedule of things to do. This would be a brilliant time to learn a new language or clean out the closets.



We give away our peace of mind every time we react emotionally to inevitable change. Peace is yours to keep, not give away. So, if you are not experiencing peace, it’s up to you to share why you are anxious with yourself by carrying on a self dialogue. Yes, that’s right. Question yourself. Work it out together with all the parts of your mind (the good, bad, and the ugly). These are the times when we will be closest to our loved ones and also have a great deal of alone time. Use it to your spiritual and physical advantage.

Some friendly reminders about Peace:

  • You are made in the image and by the grace of Peace. 
  • Peace doesn’t comprehend pandemonium. 
  • Peace of mind is gentle.
  • Peace does not judge you or others.
  • Peace promotes calm and love.
