…where caring, learning, growing, transforming women gather…
I’d like to tell you a story. Over a decade ago, I wrote for a teeny tiny website just for women over fifty. The internet was in its infancy, and this particular site was one of the first of its kind. My mother was dying, my children getting ready to flee the nest, and I was suddenly “over the hill”. My life and sense of self was all topsy-turvy, and my heart was breaking into a million pieces.
Little did I know, that this writing gig would change my life. As I began to share my thoughts and feelings with this incredible group of women, and listen to their stories, I woke up to the realization that I was not alone. Buoyed by their kindness, generosity of spirit, guidance and understanding, my life began to feel a little more manageable.
WE CAN DO ANYTHING WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM OUR FRIENDS
Like many things on the internet, this group dissolved, but not without creating life long friendships and leaving its mark. When I began Aging Abundantly it was with the idea of creating just such an experience here. Technology and life being what it is it’s an ongoing evolutionary process. I love to write and will keep writing as long as I have the wits and strength to do so, but I’ve been missing the camaraderie that once made the world brighter for a small group of women.
Social media worked for a while to fill the gap, but now it has become more of a battle ground inundated with advertising than a means of sharing and connecting. So, I created a closed, secret group to create a haven for women facing the adventures of aging. In the main group conversation is largely positive, supportive, funny, and uplifting. For a more personal connection members can join a small, topical circle of no more than 8 participants. These circles are focused on a particular issue or interest. There is a circle for writers, the politically minded, personal growth, spiritual guidance, crafters and artists of all types. If a member has a personal problem they would like to discuss, they can request a temporary link up with several members that they select and do so in privacy.

Sharing my heartache during the last days of my mother’s life with the women in this group was a gift that has stayed with me. I wrote freely of my worries, concerns, questions and fears, often writing in a coffee shop between visits with my mom. They told me often, “we have your back”, and I believed them. It didn’t matter that we never met, or that we lived all over the globe. Their hearts were clear and strong and present. We were drawn into a little cocoon of caring and support.
I want that for everyone. No one should have to suffer alone. No one should have nowhere to go to share their thoughts and feelings when their world is being upended. . . or in the midst of great joy. Join us and be a part of our caring community.
