I was going to talk today about how tired I am, of reading all these jokes on older people forgetting everything, but circumstances presented themselves and now I’ve been spun off in a completely different direction.
Earlier today I was talking to my best friend (yup I have one) and she was telling me what a hard time she was having at work. I listened to her share her story, but I couldn’t help myself in the end reminding her that she controlled her own destiny and that it…Continue

Whether we realize it or not, we inspire others. As we go through our daily routine, we connect with the world, often in ways we aren't even aware of. Who are you presenting to the world? To your family, your colleagues, your community? Are you a good example, or a horrible warning? I would venture to say that all of us at any given time, are both.
I have lived in my home for just over ten years. Every spring when the weather warms,…Continue
When I first began writing my blog it was in support of my book “Your Second Fifty” but it wasn’t long before it became its own little ditty of daily text that flowed out of the mind of Frank.
So why do I say the Pros and Pros rather than the Pros and Cons?
Well actually it could even be the Pros and the Pros and the Pros, because first off it allows me to clear some of the clutter floating around in my mind and formulate it in a way that gives positive…Continue

I can’t remember anything ever happening in my life that wasn’t presented with an obstacle to accompany it. Now I know that 99.9% of all of these obstacles are minor – that is until I make them major, but in any case they are still obstacles. I mean I can’t even cook dinner without facing the obstacle of preparing it and then having to do the dishes afterwards.
BUT then there’s the other side of the coin – if I am mentally strong enough to over come the pending obstacles, I…Continue

For the past 7 Wednesday’s I focused on “Finding Forgiveness” a wonderful book by Dr. Eileen Borris-Dunchunstang. Today I want to share how my finding forgiveness for others has lead me to finding forgiveness for myself which has opened my eyes to the amazing beauty that surrounds me – moment by moment!
In life I believe we are all searching to find our purpose. For some, they are compelled to accomplish a great task, for others it’s to attain a specific item or lifestyle, yet for…Continue

We are never too old to offer a kind word, share our wisdom and brighten the lives of others. No matter what age you are – you are of great value – to someone. The following story was sent to me from a lovely lady I met in Saudi Arabia. She opened my eyes to a self destructive behavior that had harmed me for years. Her approach was not to one up me, or put me down, but to help me become the best person I could be. I will always be grateful of her wisdom, honesty and kindness. Thank you…Continue

Today at the gym one of my sons mentioned a friend of his had 3 weeks left to live, he has terminal cancer. I said “maybe you need to tell your friend that his time left in human form is not solely dependent upon a doctor’s guestimation, but more so, on his choice, whether to let go of his human form or to stay, summon his inner strength to overcome his ailment and then seek to find out what greater task he has been spared for?”
It can be a hard thing for people believe that…Continue

The other day a friend of mine was attempting to go down to the US to meet his girlfriend and was stopped at the boarder. They questioned his motives, feeling he might be wanting to move to the US and work illegally – his car was packed full – certainly a fair reason. In any case after a couple of hours of grilling they ended up turning him away telling him he must bring documentation that proves he is a stable Canadian Citizen.
The next day he returned with all the documents…Continue
Yesterday one of my sons was pretty angry – I won’t go into why, but I will say I didn’t try to give him advice on what he should or shouldn’t do – what I did do was offer him my ear if and when he wanted to talk to someone.
Easy to do – Nope!! Could I have showered him with You Should’s – Yes!! But I didn’t because his anger is his issue and his anger is based upon his fears and only he has the solution – so the only thing I could do was offer him was an unconditional ear…Continue

Once we have reached Step Seven in the forgiveness process, we have come to a very special place. There are certain things we have come to realize about our minds and the way we think. We may have realized that in a sense we have operated from two minds — one we call the lower self or ego, and one of a spiritual self or the place of our divinity. When we function from the lower self, we believe that responsibility for whatever has taken place is outside…Continue

I can look back at myself and see how wore out I used to get in my mid twenties – I would come home from work and feel drained. But was it because I really over worked – NO – it was because I was mulling over the same thoughts time and time again, how was I going to pay this bill, how would I handle this or that situation, this over thinking comes in millions of disguises, but it is available to us all on a daily basis.
But for some funny reason I actually thought that…Continue
