summer of love and menopause

I can’t believe that we are almost half way through the year 2012! Many of us, including myself become so all-consumed and immersed in our busy work lives, that life seems to go by far too quickly.

Where did the 1960s go, when we felt that we would be happy and carefree forever? Life during that time was never dull and always seemed to be a great adventure. If it were 1967, this month would commence The Summer of Love. The summer of 1967 had a profound impact on American life, including my own. Time certainly has changed the way we now think and act.

We certainly can’t get back time we’ve lost as it rapidly goes by; the precious moments that we could have spent with family and friends, and taking care of our own individual health. What we can do now is teach ourselves to find the joy in living, and to make room in our lives to not only nurture others, but to nurture ourselves.

I encourage you to completely enjoy what life has to offer and bring back that idealism we had in the 1960s. Don’t miss out on life!

The Spirit of the 60s are definitely still being spread at some local Red Hot Mamas Chapters that renewed their licenses in May:

  • Peace, love and happiness are certainly still alive, especially at PeaceHealth Southwest Washington Medical Center in Vancouver, Washington as they enter year four with the Red Hot Mamas.
  • The oil capital of America is also getting energized with a Red Hot Mamas renewal. Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital in Houston, Texas is entering their second year of programming.
  • The RHM program at Carilion New River Valley Medical Center in Christiansburg, Virginia never gets old! They’re bringing a fresh and new 7th year of the RHM program to their community.

Want to know where your local RHM program is? Find a local chapter in your area. Thanks to all Red Hot Mamas programs for continuing to educate and advocate for a healthy menopause.

Happy Mother’s Day wishes to all the mothers and grandmothers, those who have enriched our lives and have been our teachers, as well as our friends. The special tribute to them will be displayed through the sparkle in our eyes.

Happy Mother’s Day to you all!
