I'm Embarrassed To Admit This To You...
It's important to feel confident about who you are.

This morning I set out to film a new video for my book "It’s Never Too Late To Marry." My husband and I were going to set up at the back of the house around 7 a.m. before it got too hot. He was behind the camera helping me focus. We did quite a few takes and it seemed to me that all was going well. I remembered what I wanted to say and thankfully no planes flew overhead to spoil the sound. When we finished the first round I went inside to look at the videos on my computer to see how I was doing.

I grabbed my cup of decaf and settled in to watch. I was not prepared for what I saw. Let me be honest here, seeing myself on screen, filmed in bright daylight was a shock. There was no hiding it, I'm not the 35 year old woman I imagine in my mind, I could see that I'm definitely 65. A very healthy 65, but when did all these changes happen to my body?

All I see are the arms that are no longer toned, the lines at the neck and oh my, those hands! Suddenly every little fault was in high focus and I was shaken. I chastised myself for wearing a top that showed so much skin. I didn't think. I wore it because I love the color and it's perfect in the Arizona heat. But let's face it, I should have known better. Keep reading...

It's a simple idea, right? Even an obvious one, but I admit ... I just didn't get it. Christopher had strung me along for 2 years. I lived in LA and he was in San Francisco. We were an hour apart by air, or 6 hours by car, yet we'd only seen each other twice in that time. It seems crazy now, but back then, it made sense. Well, the truth is ... Read more
