Top Ten Self-fullness Tips for Sandwiched Women

April 27th, 2008

No need to look up “self-fullness” in the dictionary – you won\’t find it. And it\’s also not likely to be in the vocabulary of women who are pulled between their careers, children, parents, spouse or even grandchildren. No matter what age women have attained, many still act the part of the \’good girl,\’ responding to the needs of others first. It\’s fitting that these multitasking women are called the Sandwich Generation – since a sandwich often means a quick bite to eat on the run for those who don\’t have the time for a sit-down meal.... Read More

A few weeks ago, I began a speech by asking how many members of my middle-aged audience still didn\’t know what they wanted to be when they grew up. After a few giggles, more than a quarter of the people in the room raised a hand. Some might argue that if you haven\’t found a calling by the time you\’re in midlife, chances are you won\’t. Meg Wolitzer, author of The Ten-Year Nap, goes even further. In a recent New York Times interview, she declares: “The notion that everyone has a calling, that everyone... Read More

Challenges, Change, and New Life

April 14th, 2008

She never had children, but treated me as I was her own. I share this in honor of Mother\’s Day. As a teenager, I sang in the church choir. I enjoyed watching the pianist, Mary, as her fingers glided across... Read More
