While I’m almost 58, my alter ego Silver Disobedience® is officially a year old today.

When I began writing this blog, people asked: Why? Don’t you have enough on your plate? Yes, I did and still do. But once I started, the immediate response was heartwarmingly rewarding. I was hooked. Now over 250,000 people follow Silver Disobedience between Instagram, Facebook, my website, along with Twitter, Pinterest & Linkedin.

I cannot begin to tell you how much I enjoy the interaction we have daily. I’ve reconnected with old friends, made new ones, and been delighted to learn that many of my ‘other work’ clients have joined this discussion as well.

I originally started this blog to release my stress when my best friend, who’s 77, was very ill. (She’s good now!) But today I write daily because this blog has proven my belief that we all mostly share the same feelings, thoughts & comparable moral attitudes.

365 blogs later, thanks to an openness of so many, to not only read what I write but to participate by expanding the dialog, I have no doubt that the theory of Collective Consciousness is valid. When differences arise, there is a great desire to understand their genesis versus simply holding on to the need to be ‘right.’ We’re all seeking peace and love. The comments following each blog are as insightful and honest as I hope each essay is. The mutual supportive exchanges & insights shared are totally awesome. Like really. Yeah man!

Our discussions have further confirmed that age has a big benefit: Our years have helped us to embrace ‘who we are.” This daily revelation has reaffirmed that aging is less about an accumulation of years and more importantly the process and celebration of getting to know ourselves better and with greater kindness to ourselves and others over time.

Thank you for joining me on this journey. I’m not sure where it will lead, but I know we’ve got a heckuva party started!
