Midlife finds many of us dragging around unwanted baggage accumulated over time, draining our energy and weighing us down. If this sounds like you, I’ve got great news!

If you’ve wanted to lose some weight, I’ve found a plan that works wonders! Plus, it’s simple, free, and will leave you energized and feeling fabulous!

“ Catch your dreams before they slip away / dying all the time / lose your dreams, and you will lose your mind.” -Rolling Stones.

In my world, living a meaningful, happy life is about wholeheartedly pursuing your dreams, hopefully, in service to others — no matter your age.

So there you have it—my three simple (tried and true) tips for thriving in midlife and beyond.

Long live: Sex, hugs, and rock ‘n roll!
