Happy 4th of July

The long weekend will be upon us shortly and once again I must take the opportunity of championing what the 4th really means.  Independence Day is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the Declaration of Independence of the United States on July 4, 1776. So I want to take this opportunity to ask you if you if you ever created a Declaration of Independence for yourself.

I so believe that we need to be independent of everyone. We can love many people and like many as well, but we have to think our own thoughts and make our own decisions, hopefully with all our loved ones in mind. We share, do for, and take care of others, sometimes at our own expense, but when done with love, it is all worth it.

I am so grateful that after the 11 years since my husband passed,  I am living a full life. Because I was so independent, I was able to carry on through the grieving process and keep things together. There will never be anyone like him, and our son is carrying on his giving ways, but my life is full and active with so much potential yet to come.

Enjoy the holiday and celebrate as only you can. I watch 9 different fireworks from my balcony and run in to watch the celebrations on TV as well. It’s a marvelous experience and I love this country and what we stand for.

Dr. Gayle Carson, Chief S.O.B. has announced the 2018b Spunky Broad of the Year.  And she is Dolly Parton, a prime example of what a woman over 50 can still achieve.

An extraordinary businesswoman, out of this world entertainer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, actress, author, and a philanthropist, Dolly Parton is a testament to what women can achieve.  At 72, she is continuing to have massive influence in the world of entertainment and her Dollywood Theme Park continues to thrive with new exhibits and attractions that the public adores.

Married to her husband for over 50 years, she is an example of someone who blends family and professional life with amazing dexterity and humor.  A Spunky Old Broad is someone who distinguishes herself by her uniqueness, intellect, enthusiasm, dedication, selflessness and spunky. Dolly certainly epitomizes all of those.

Dr. Gayle says “Women over 50 are like fine wine.  They only get better with age and I am delighted to have Dolly Parton as our Spunky Old Broad of the Year.” 

Gayle also says “I started the S.O.B, movement because I found that women over 50 were thinking that it was all over because they hit the magic number of 50.  I knew that they had everything it took to start new careers, develop a passion into a business and start thinking about putting themselves first.  And I was right. Right now re-invention is the name of the game.

Gayle will be addressing the East Bay Women’s Conference  in California on just that subject next month.
