Longevity and Quality of Life

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

The older we get the more aware we become of longevity and what constitutes quality of life. Perhaps it’s partly my previous career in ElderCare, or the fact I moved and took care of my dementing mother for the last few years of her life, or maybe it’s the awareness I can now say “Fifty […]

Vanity vs Happiness

Sometimes the line between vanity and happiness is a little blurry. A recent dental appointment made a dream come true and ended a frustration I’ve had for years.

Memorabilia Schmemorabilia

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

I moved recently, and part of that move entailed pulling everything out of the storage locker I rented two years ago when I downsized from a large 5-bedroom house to a one-bedroom apartment.  I had let go of a lot of “stuff” when I sold the house, but I’m one of “those” mums who hangs […]

A Leap at Opportunity or An Act of Foolishness?

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

I moved cities recently.  It was unplanned, unexpected, a leap at an opportunity that materialized seemingly out of nowhere.

I sold my motorcycle today. Let her go for a song.  As I knew I would. She was old.  She wasn’t pretty. I joked that we had that in common.  I’ve tried umpteen times in the last few years to sell her, and then two days after I’d post the ad I‘d remove it. The […]
