I am recovering from my birthday vacation week. Jean is also enjoying some time off, so while we ease back into our routine, I’m pulling an oldie but goodie from the Fun. Feisty. Fabulous! vault. We’ll be back next week with a fresh Fun. Feisty. Fabulous! episode.

The theme for tonight’s episode is Do You, Boo! or Do You! if you aren’t a fan of that particular term of endearment. Basically, as we get older, we often become surer of ourselves, what we want, what we’ll tolerate and what we need to fully express ourselves. Yet, we often doubt ourselves, and even up letting other people influence and cajole us into their way – leading to frustration and discouragement.

To do you, you don’t have to get upset, defend yourself or second-guess your choices. You just have to find what works for you and do it. Let judgements go and embrace your choices and the choices of others (even if they aren’t yours) with tact and class.

Whether it is your choice of a mate, career direction or just everyday personal choices, you don’t need anyone’s permission to live your life your way.

This show is being uploaded two days before my favorite day of the year … my own personal holiday and a cause for celebration. Yes, it is my Birthday. September 21a date that will live on and on thanks to Earth Wind and Fire’s classic, September (listen to the first show).

Join Jean and I and my bestie Tawanna as we discuss birthdays, how we celebrate, why some people don’t and why aging gets such a bad rap. After all, if we’re lucky, we all will get older and there are benefits to it.

Listen and stop by the website to read the birthday blog:

Long gone are the days of my father, when you could work your way thorough school. I don’t even think it is possible to prepare for college like my parents prepared for me, with a growing college savings account that started when I was an infant.

Kids are graduating today and putting off home ownership and marriage because they can’t afford anything besides paying off a Herculean college loan debt. Is it possible to pay for a college education without stressing out parents and starting a college graduate with a mountain-sized debt load?

Beverly Horton may have some answers. Her oldest is currently in graduate school and her youngest is starting her second year with a 50% athletic scholarship and a 50% academic scholarship. 

Not everyone can do what Bev did, but she may have some ideas that might help you right where you are right now.

Jean and I have a frank discussion about how tolerance and acceptance have too often been replaced by intolerance, disapproval and rejection. We discuss our experiences by tackling two big subjects, religion and politics.

As a Buddhist, Jean has heard all too often, that she is on the wrong path or is going to hell. She is not proselytizing or trying to beat people over the head with her views, yet people continually offer their opinion on her choices.

Even though I need to lose weight, I have to do it my way. Well meaning family and friends aren’t helping me by trying to shove their (successful) weight loss efforts down my throat. I need to do it my way and that should be okay.
