TGIF FUN

growwilderWomen of a “certain age” should always  behave in a dignified,  well behaved manner.  Says who?

Just because we have become a little older does not mean that we still don’t want to engage in life. After all we still have plenty of it left in us! olderwoman3

So go ahead, dreams those outrageous dreams, sing at the top of your lungs, wear flowers in your hair, let out a big boisterous laugh.  Keep a smile on your face and a sparkle in your eye. It will make the world wonder what secret you have up your sleeve (which we hope is attached to a eye catching outfit that you thrifted) ,  that keeps you looking so fabulous. In other words never let yourself be tamed.  Now get out there   and show a little bit of your wilder side. After all what better time for fun than the weekend!

Motivational Monday It’s Never Too Late

motivationalmonday12Do you believe in the statement above? Do you still get an out of this world wild idea at times. Do you dream big? If you answered yes to these questions, our (stylish) hats are off to you. But if you have doubts about your dreams being too big, or your ideas too wild, just because of your age, have we got some motivation for you! We have compiled a small list of women who did AMAZING things and followed their dreams when some would have said it was too late. We are glad they did not listen!

  1. Anna May Robertson Moses 1860-1961

GrandmaMoses

Perhaps better known as Grandma Moses, Anna began painting after the passing of her husband. In order to keep busy and help her with her grief, she started painting scenes of rural American living. Her first big break came in 1938, when she had some of her works hanging in a local store. Art collector, Louis J. Caldor saw and bought all of her paintings. The following year she had some of her paintings shown at The Museum of Modern Art in New York City. She went on to have her first one-woman show in New York and had her work displayed at Gimbels, a famous NY department store. She started writing her memoirs at 92, and passed away at 101.

   2.  Kathryn Joosten 12/20/39 – 6/2/2012

kathryn joosten

 While you many not recognize her name you may recognize her face from popular televisions series, The West Wing and Desperate Housewives. But did you know that Kathryn did not start pursuing her acting career until she was in her 40’s? She also started working as a street performer at Disney World at age 53.  Wow! Just think how lucky to be working at “the happiest place on earth”,  at any age!  At age 60 she was famous for her role as Mrs. Landingham, secretary to the President in the show West Wing. In 2005 to 2012, she played the role of Karen McCluskey on Desperate Housewives. She won her first Emmy award at age 66. Kathryn decided to pursue her dream of acting after her mother’s deathbed confession of regretting not following her own dreams. So this lady who had no experience or training signed up for classes at Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago. How is that for dreaming big?

   3.  Susan Boyle 4/1/1961

susanboyle2

In 2009, Susan Boyle participated in the television show Britain’s Got Talent. She sang I Dreamed a Dream from Les Misérables. Her first album was released November 2009 and debuted as number one best selling CD around the globe. In only 6 weeks of sales it became the best selling album for 2009, selling 9 million copies.  Susan is proof that it is never to late to let our voices be heard!

4.  Laura Ingalls Wilder 2/7/1867-210/1957

Laura Ingalls Wilder American writer of the Little House on the Prairie series of books was not published until she was 65!  Millions of people are very happy that she had a big idea that she believed in.

5.  Harriette  Thompson 3/27/1923-10/16/2017

Harriette Thompson

At age 91, Harriette Thompson became the oldest woman in history to finish a marathon.  7 hours, 24 minutes, and 36 seconds was her time.  What more proof do we need that it is never too late to pursue something you have always dreamed of or some new idea that you have just discovered you may be interested in doing.  If not now, when?

Never forget….

This is Henrietta. Though she occasionally made some questionable fashion choices, she was still a good egg!

Just a little something silly to help start your weekend. Hope this “cracked” you up.   We know it made us “cackle”.  Sorry folks, but  these are the yolks, we mean jokes…

Wishing everyone a fun and safe weekend. And don’t forget to make wise fashion choices!
