It’s never too late to follow your dreams!

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. She felt that something was missing in her life and decided to remedy that. She was not about to let her age get in the way! (more…)

Are you brave enough to claim your independence?

Happy Independence Day! For my international readers, Independence Day is annually celebrated on July 4th in the United States. It’s the anniversary of our country’s Declaration of Independence from Great Britain in 1776. The early colonists in America felt they were being treated unfairly by the English, so they bravely took up arms and fought for their liberty and independence. On this day, patriotic displays and family events are organized throughout the United States.

This holiday always gets me thinking about what is means to be independent. Are you an independent person? By that I mean, are you free of unfair treatment by people who have power over you? It could be a spouse, a friend, a boss, co-workers, or possibly your kids. (more…)
