It’s never too late to follow your dreams!
Ida Ruth Hayes Greene

It’s never too late to follow your dreams!

I get correspondence and see comments from highly sensitive people and introverts of all ages lamenting that it’s too late to do something meaningful in their lives. As a 69-year-old highly sensitive person and introvert, I can definitely say that this isn’t true! I feel that my best years are yet to come! I’m excited about the prospect of writing much more information about HSPs and introverts. It’s important to have passion and something to look forward to.

I read an inspirational article about a woman who got her high school diploma at the age of 98! Ida Ruth Hayes Greene always regretted not having graduated from high school.

Are You One Of The “Crazy Ones?”

One of the most legendary advertising campaigns of all time was Apple’s “Think Different” campaign, which ran from 1997-2002. It was meant to honor those who think differently, the “crazy ones,” the visionaries who inspire others to new levels of creativity.

(18) Running Myself Ragged and Dealing with the Medical Establishment (Part 1)

After a grueling, multi-year effort to meet our goal of moving halfway across the country to be closer to our daughter, I hoped to put all of that stress behind me. At first, this seemed to be the case…you wouldn’t believe the sense of relief I felt over finally being in our new home! But unfortunately my “reckoning” was on its way. It would come in the form of getting sick and then having to spend MANY months navigating a complex medical establishment in order to restore my health. (more…)
