When I received this email, its title was “Senior Citizens 2021.” It is my humble opinion that these wise recommendations are useful for ALL AGES.

*Dear Senior Citizens –

▪When you get old, never teach anyone anything, unless requested, even if you are sure you are right.
▪Do not try to help unless asked for. Just be ready and available for it if possible.
▪Do not give unsolicited opinion all the time.
▪Do not expect everyone to follow your opinion, even though you feel your opinion was the best…
▪Don’t impose yourself on anyone on any subject.
▪Don’t try to protect your loved ones from all the misfortunes of the World. Just love them and pray for them.
▪Don’t complain about your health, your neighbors, your retirement, your woes all the time.
▪Don’t expect gratitude from children. There are no ungrateful children, there are only stupid parents, who expect gratitude from their children.
▪Don’t waste your last money on anti – age treatments. It’s useless. Better spend it on a trip. It’s always worth it.
▪Take care of your spouse, even if he/she becomes a wrinkled, helpless and moody old person. Don’t forget he/she was once young, good looking and cheerful, may be he/she is the only one who really needs you right now.
▪Understand new technologies, obsessively follow the News, constantly study something new, a new skill, a new dish, a new indoor game, do not fall behind in time.
▪Don’t blame yourself for whatever happened to your life or to your children’s lives, you did everything you could.
▪Preserve your dignity & integrity in any situation, till the end.
▪Do your best, my senior Peers. This is very important. Remember, you’re still alive, someone needs you. Do your best and leave the rest to The Almighty.
▪I guess some friends are already following these tips.

Here an extra one: Read a good romance to stop stressing about your daily problems.

The Golden Legacy: Great Wealth’s Dangers by @_NancyRadke

April might be rainy in other parts of the US, but in Seattle this year we have had some spectacular days, warm and sunny, causing our flowers and flowering trees to burst into bloom. The birds have burst into song, and I’m waiting for the moment when I, as a writer, will burst into words. So far it hasn’t happened.

The only way to write is to start writing, so that is what I’m trying to do, but I find my story has gone south the way of the geese and hasn’t flown back north yet. One of the reasons might be that I just finished a book, Dangerous Inheritance, which is my second book as part of the Golden Legacy series.

The Golden Legacy

 

Now Selling on Amazon

The set, The Golden Legacy, is now available for Kindle readers. This set consists of five books, with two of them (contemporaries) having been written by me. These are all rags to riches stories, almost Cinderella types, where one of the protagonists comes into a fabulous legacy. The riches have a curse attached as well as a blessing, requiring the inheritor to spend the money in certain ways. Use it wrongly, and you lose the money as well as what you already have. Because sudden wealth is often looked on with suspicion, the theme has a built-in element of danger.

The authors in this series have spanned time from the 1700s up to modern day. Suzanne’s book has a seaman getting part of the treasure. He uses it after a slave rebellion to rescue a woman he admires.

Twist of Fate

Rebecca’s story centers around a young man trying to raise his daughter and save his race horse business. The book is set in the 1800s. The young woman who helps him becomes the fulfillment of his dreams.

Race for the Gold

My two stories are contemporary, with people trying to get the woman and the money. Dangerous Inheritance (not published anywhere else) forces the hero to choose between the legacy and the woman he loves.

Nancy Radke The Golden Legacy

Katy Walters book bounces between two centuries, using a time portal and the legacy as a common item.

The Beauty of … Fresh Starts @josieriviera, #mgtab

January was named for the Roman God Janus, who was depicted as a God with two faces. One faced into the future and one looked to the past, essentially closing the door on one year and opening another to the next, Janus ushers in January, and I welcome the month for fresh starts and new beginnings.

For many, we also make resolutions. These can be anything we chose, though frequently resolutions revolve around becoming healthier, saving money, increasing our self-care, or learning a new skill.

Oftentimes, we don’t stick to these resolutions, primarily because of how we approach them. We become excited and expect immediate results, rushing toward the finish line. It might serve us better if we take it slower with smaller steps. Think of your journey more as you being the tortoise rather than the hare.

Experts suggest that we are more likely to succeed if we know our “why,” making a plan of how to reach our goals, and patiently taking action to achieve the outcomes we look for.

Wishing you success on your resolutions, (mine is going on a diet to lose the Covid weight), and to a bright, happy, and healthy 2021.

January is the perfect month to curl up by a warm fire and read a new book. My sweet romance short story, A Chocolate-Box Irish Wedding, is available at the introductory price of only 99¢. Grab your copy today. Also available in paperback, Large Print Paperback, and audiobook.
