Hello there! I’m thrilled to connect with you. As a retired educator, an Enneagram 2 and ENFP, my journey has been shaped by a deep passion for nurturing personal growth and advocating for people of all ages. With advanced degrees in Human Resource Development, Educational Leadership, and Special Education, I’ve dedicated myself to assisting others in discovering their fullest potential. 

As a lifelong learner, my quest for knowledge has taken me across the country to explore diverse cultures and lifestyles, feeding my natural curiosity. I’ve also been a devoted caregiver to elderly loved ones, advocating fiercely for their rights and wellness. Sassy Sister Stuff is a passion project that I launched after retirement to unite women who are navigating the unique challenges of midlife and beyond. 

With a mindset rooted in personal growth, we can craft lives filled with sass and confidence to overcome any obstacle along our journey through the aging process. I warmly invite you to explore this space, embark on your own personal growth journey, and foster wellness alongside me. Let’s create a life we’re excited to live! Meanwhile, I’m sending you sunshine and smiles, my friend!

Love these prompts! I enjoy journaling, but sometimes I struggle with doing so in a productive and positive fashion. There is so much to be grateful for, but sometimes we all need a nudge in the right direction as a reminder. Thank you for sharing!

What a well thought out article. As a school counselor I advocate for every single area of development. It so important to focus on the whole person not just one area.

~ Rachel W

After reading this post I wished many people a wonderful International Happiness Day. It’s a great reminder. Sometimes we get caught up in our lives and forget the importance of choosing happiness, and more importantly inner joy.  Thank You!

Wow, these quotes are absolutely amazing! I can’t pick a favourite because I love them all for their positive and heartfelt messages. Thank you for sharing them!

~ Miranda B

I loved the bit about how you control how you react to things. Literally just did an IG story rant on this very topic. It is so important to react with grace and positivity versus negative anger in my opinion. Though it can be very easy to do the latter.

~ Annalise S

This is a great post right from the start! I agree that starting your day on a positive note really helps. Also, it is very important to get the proper amount of rest, exercise regularly and follow a healthy diet. Thank you for sharing this awesome post.
