Living Life in Tandem with Gratitude
We take too much stuff too seriously. Yes, there are real burdens and serious health matters as we age, but we all need to see the gift in the moment.
In this heartwarming forum, Kim Kane will help us to recognize how much we have to be grateful for every day. Ask yourself what your hopes, dreams, and desires are. Decide to do something more in life and pursue it. Live so that others think of you and smile and know you for your integrity.
However, getting older isn’t all sunshine and unicorns. Our judgments can get in the way of truly getting to know and connect with other people. Kim will also address negative thinking and how “what if something bad happens” can lead to dark places in our hearts and lives. She’ll focus on some important topics as we age, including finding gratitude and a happier life, setting intentions as we age and the power of practicing mindfulness.
Kim Kane is a speaker, blogger, writer, and a woman of a certain age. She has lived more than she will . . . and while she isn’t thrilled about this, she does intend to look at life as still filled with opportunities to take advantage of. Kim has worked with youth and families experiencing difficulties for the past thirty years. She describes the work as exhausting, exhilarating, and humbling all at the same time. Working with youth has helped keep her perspective young. However, she is reminded she is aging when trying to find underwear that fits and feels comfortable.
In her fantasy life, Kim and her husband are living on a lake with a couple of dogs. Her house is in the north woods where it seems like fall every day and she drinks her coffee on her deck every morning to the lullaby of the loons singing. And she writes.
In her real life, Kim continues to work with youth and families, lives with her husband in a suburb of Minneapolis, and has one dog. Currently, her kitchen is gutted for a remodel and she cannot find her favorite spatula or the salt. And she writes. Sparkle On is her first book.
