A day in the Life of a Baby Boomer Diva (from the diary of the Baby Boomer Diva)


Dear Diary,

It's great to wake up with the sunshine beaming through my window! But even if there were no sunshine on the outside, there is plenty of radiance going on inside of me!!!

This time last year, I was miserable in a job that worked me like a slave. Everyone around me thought it was a glamour job because I was in TV-----whatever! Honey, when I write the book on the real, untold story of television news, you won't think it's so glamorous anymore. As a matter of fact, you might end of boycotting news all together for awhile.

But this year, I'm doing exactly what I love and I praise God for having the freedom to do it. After the successful launch of my book, Whatever! A Baby Boomer's Journey into Middle Age, I figured that since I have all of this knowledge and experience as a journalist, I might as well put it to good use with my own business. So here I am with my own company called Soul Solutions and I am what you would call a media coach/consultant. I train individuals on how to prepare themselves for media interviews and because I still have many wonderful friends in the business, I have teamed up with some of them to make sure that my clients get the media interviews they've been seeking.

I am an entrepreneur. I go to work when I want to and I can even work in my pajamas (or if my husband is home, I prefer a negligee). I really enjoy what I’m doing. You see, the one thing about a Diva is----we do everything with PASSION!

I invite you to join the club if you think you have what it wakes.

18 Years

During a recent trip to my doctor's office for my annual health check-up, I got news I'm not sure I thought I would ever hear.  "You can stop taking your carvedilol."  I'd been taking this medication for congestive heart failure.

My story of having congestive heart failure began 18 years ago around 2:30 in the morning.  I was lying in bed trying to sleep but I was having trouble breathing.  I was gasping for air.  I leaned over to my husband (ex) and told him how I was feeling and asked him to take me to the hospital.  He didn't move so I drove myself to the ER and ended up being admitted, where I stayed for 10 days.  Not only did I have to worry about getting better but I also had to be concerned about my 10-year-old daughter's welfare since she was now in the sole custody of her father, who was absent from the family more times than he was present.

Little did I know at the time just how sick I was.  I was already being treated for hyperthyroidism but th…

Survey says Christmas is about the Experience not the Gifts

If there's a survey out somewhere, you can believe I'll find it and share it----like this one on what Americans say they want for Christmas.

E-X-P-E-R-I-E-N-C-E!  Yes, according to a report released by IfOnly, an overwhelming 81 percent of respondents said they preferred an "experience" over any other type of gift.  

Okay, so the next question is, what kind of experience?  

39 percent said go on a helicopter tour
32 percent said go on a private tour of a museum
27 percent said pet a panda at the zoo

But get this:  36 percent of those who took the survey said they would rather spend the holiday with a wild animal than with their in-laws.

75 percent of Millennials said they would do anything in exchange for an incredible experience while nearly half of those surveyed said they would give up an hour of sleep for the entire holiday season to have an incredible experience instead of receiving a gift certificate.

And for those of you who have been complaining about lack of intimac…

There's a Survey for Thanksgiving

Another survey has come out and this one is just in time for Thanksgiving.  Delta Dental has come out with its Third Annual Thanksgiving pie survey.

The number one pie enjoyed by families across America is pumpkin once again.  Thirty-six percent of those surveyed favored it over pecan pie, which came in a distant second at 17 percent. 

In other survey results,pumpkin pie is enjoyed most in the West and least in the South.  That's not a surprising statistic because Southerners love their sweet potato pies loaded with lots and lots of sugar.  A dentist's dream.

Apple pie came in third with 14 percent, followed by sweet potato at 10 percent, chocolate 9 percent, lemon meringue 4 percent, blueberry and cherry tied at 3 percent and strawberry at 2 percent.

Of course, while this survey may or may not be relevant, Delta Dental's message is that whatever pie you eat this holiday season that you "remember to take the time to brush and floss away the sugary remnants."

Goo…
