- I am a renegade and an outlaw. I am a dancing soul with a huge heart and a history strewn with errors and missed steps. I am a lady that did life “wrong” for more years than I care to admit. I tried to do a version of life that my culture and my family thought was valid. I failed miserably with much pain and sorrow to show for it.
At the age of fifty-one I walked away from that life and ventured into one with my spirit soaring and my soul pounding the pavement of living. Here is what I discovered: We are meant to live full-on, gut-wide and happy. We are meant to know our power and beauty as human beings and to rejoice in this gift of our days on this planet.
And this is what I share with others. I do it with laughter and honesty and with the insight born from my own life and learning. I do it with great love and with great passion.
For this is my life and I intend to share it and dare it all the way—until I am done.

As my years are folding one into the other, I have come to the immutable fact that there really are no outside rules in life that can guide me. I must come to my own set of inner principles. I must consciously put myself and my truths out there. So… Read full post »
Boy, I get really lost in life at times. I can hit a wall of me wanting what I want. I’ll get all stubborn and wonky as I sit there with teary eyes and a “this sucks” thumb in my mouth. When I find myself in this place, I ask myself… Read full post »
As I sit here, there are tears in my eyes as pain is beginning to come to clarity. For months I have been struggling to write my weekly Guts of the Matter articles and the words have not come. Or if they have, they are not about what is really going… Read full post »
It is the stark and powerful beauty of a soul struggling . .
that makes my heart sing and sigh in wonder.
It is another's tears of sorrow or joy . . .
that cause my soul to fly out in a welcome of heartbreak or celebration.
It is the… Read full post »
I can be such a smart ass at times. When shopping recently, I blithely told the sales person that I was “pushing sixty,” smugly thinking to myself that I am only fifty-six. She remarked, “Gee, you look wonderful for your age!” (I always hate the “for your age” codi… Read full post »
What is the price of a happy and joy-filled life? It is a gut-level, brutal honesty about who we are and what we have been doing. When we face ourselves head-on with a fearless “I will do this thing,” the hidey-holes of denial and self-deception disappear and we are then free… Read full post »
"What do you want to be when you grow up?" We are asked this question as children from the first moments we can totter around and grab the doctor kit. We look for the things we must accomplish and the needs we are supposed to fill to define us as people.… Read full post »
Insights On Aging brings you one of our readers’ all-time favorite newsletters, originally published on June 29, 2010.
Do you remember the first time you heard the “S” (Sir) word or the “M” (Ma’am) word when someone was addressing you? In the time line of m… Read full post »
I will never forget the day that I looked in the mirror and really saw the lady looking back at me. I was not thirty-five anymore. I was not forty-five anymore. I was fifty-one years old. And, in that moment of clarity, it hit me like a 2 x 4 in… Read full post »
I really like your message, but I really think you should consider changing the name from “Insights on Aging” to something like “Insights on Living.” “Insights on Aging” just seems like you’re talking about anti-aging products and I find it c… Read full post »
Of late I have been contemplating and conversing about the concept of truth. I did not think there was much to discuss. The truth is the truth, right? Apparently, this is not so. There seems to be a lot of “gray” area and “gray” matter where the truth… Read full post »
To truly love and accept ourselves seems a difficult task for many. I recently spent some time asking people in one of my very “scientific” surveys, if they loved themselves. I thought it a fairly simple query with “yes” or “no” being the answer. The responses… Read full post »
I am sitting at a large old oak dining table at a cottage on Lake Huron in Michigan as I write this article. My eyes glance around this room where I spent so many of my days and where so many faces of my youth played. My heart expands… Read full post »
As I sit here typing this newsletter, my thoughts go to how my life has turned out so far. I am stunned and more than surprised at the life I now lead. Things have changed, people have changed and I have changed in ways I never could have… Read full post »
I have at last come to a point in my maturity and sanity to choose to no longer carry the inside pain of an “excused” life.
In my younger years, I was a whole lot about agreeing to do things and planning things. Then, when the time would… Read full post »
As the days of my life become years, I am amazed at the speed with which time moves. Events and incidences, large and small, swing past and around me causing me often to blink in surprise and wonder. It is rather like watching the swirl of snow in… Read full post »
"When we change, we change our world." The first time I heard this phrase I just went, "Yeah that sounds cool and kind of guru-interesting, but what the heck does it really mean?" It meant nothing at all until I really heard it and finally put this "change" stuff into action. Then/… Read full post »
Perhaps it is just me, but I don't quite feel like I am standing on solid ground anymore. The pavements I walk seem to be ever-moving and shifting. I have this feeling that I am walking on a "Slip 'n Slide" struggling to hold my balance in a "there are no… Read full post »
Doing this living thing well takes great courage and an open heart. But so often, we are frightened to put ourselves really out there--to give it our all. Why are we so scared? We will be hurt. We won't do it right. We will fall on our face. People will judge… Read full post »
I don't know if you were anything like me when you were a younger you. But somehow as a very much younger Robin, I thought I was going to somehow "arrive" at being a grown-up. I would pop full-blown into adulthood rather like the Pillsbury Doughboy,… Read full post »
