Hello, Wisdonians! I hope you will pop in on my group at 4 PM New York Daylight Savings Time today, Friday, March 19th. It is called Widows/Widowers Rebuilding for now though still waiting for Wisdo to change the name. However, anyone who has lost a loved one is welcome to attend and join discussions. It's no fun to do these groups alone so let's have some company and participation please. Today I will share some reflection questions to help you with your grief and some other things to help you in managing and rebuilding life. Also the discussion is open to things you would like to discuss. Almost nothing is off limits as long as we are kind, respectful and open to other opinions and ways of viewing things. Will I see you there?
I found a nice post on Healthy Retirement. https://www.webmd.com/healthy-aging/ss/slideshow-healthy-retirement
Hello Everyone: My Friday Group Session at 4 PM Eastern Daylight Savings Time (N.Y. Time) is for those who are widows, widowers or have lost a partner, but others who are interested or have lost a loved one, are always welcomed. Please come to the session on Friday, March 26th if you are free. It will be a texting chat session this week again. I generally have a planned topic or two, but you may also bring issues or questions to the table and we can discuss what is on your hearts and minds. This week my plan is to discuss: HOW CAN COACHING HELP ME THROUGH AND BEYOND MY GRIEF? WHAT IS IT? and also: Discussion--THE BEST VERSION OF MYSELF IS YET TO COME.. Do you believe that statement? Is it possible for you even after you have lost your dear spouse, partner or close loved one? I believe it is probably not, IF you have convinced yourself it isn't possible. Let's talk about that! What else? Well, that depends on what you bring to the table. You make these sessions dynamic. We coaches love to have you attend our sessions, rather than talking to ourselves for an hour or more. Come prepared to chat, to meet each other, or at least to say hi and let us know you're there, if you're shy. You are a valuable part of my community. I see that there are a large number of people who are part of this community, but I would love to meet you in my live sessions. If you are not free at that time, please pop in any time, read what's there and leave some comments. Here's a link directly to my Friday 4 PM group. https://wisdo.com/communities/widowsers-rebuild-lives See you soon! Regards, Coach Iris

Worrying/anxiety is about the anticipation of an event. Your brain starts asking “what if” too many times, and comes up with a lot of answers it doesn’t like. Even if you think you have a solution, you can’t be sure it will work because your crystal ball is on the fritz. So anxiety is often problem solving — but without the solving. Join us at 9 am central time at Joyful Retirement as we discuss ways to stop worrying. Everyone is invited and your participation will be welcome.
For many, worrying is often a way to try to predict what the future has in store-a way to prevent surprises and control the outcome. The problem is, it doesn’t work. It’s not possible to predict all the things that can go wrong and trying to does not make the future more predictable. Join us as we talk about some ways to control worrying and put the power to handle life’s problems back in your hands. Everyone is welcome at Joyful Retirement on Monday 9 am central.

“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” – Oprah Winfrey There is a direct link between gratitude and joy.

Join us in Joyful Retirement at 9 am central time Monday as we continue our discussion about Joy. Bring your ideas and questions. All are welcome.

My live session is coming up! Today's topic is setting boundaries.
A man who has committed a mistake and doesn’t correct it, is committing another mistake. Confucius I make mistakes everyday. I believed “one size fits all” (big mistake). I didn’t believe “bet ya can’t eat just one” (big mistake). I sent an email meant for one person to “send all” (big mistake). So mistakes happen, but what do you do after you make a mistake? How do you recover? Join us Monday at 9 am central at Joyful Retirement as we talk about the next step.
