About KWAT (Kachin Women's Association Thailand)

If you are over 60 and yearning to live with more passion and purpose, here are a few steps to get you started on your own reinvention. Think of the opportunities for your newfound independence if you have just retired and are searching for something purposeful to fill your life.

Divorce

When divorce is combined with other changes in your life, like retirement or taking care of an ailing parent, it's tempting to never want to leave the house. Although feeling bogged down and confused during divorce is typical, avoiding these common boomer blunders can save you unnecessary drama and strain so you can move on with your life.

Dealing with pain

Divorce feels awful because, as a culture, none of us are taught to plan ahead for it.

Funny, right? For several years, physicians have been telling us to take care of ourselves so we will feel better as we age. Financial advisors preached about preparing for retirement for years. Why don't we apply those same standards to annulment?

Values

I'm planning to tell you an adventure that is so prevalent and so troubling it is effectively split off from the emotional lives of young women, hidden into whatever neural recesses exist for the purpose of shelving information that seems pointless yet distantly terrifying. I wonder if young women will check this out? The paradox is that they most likely won't, and the quietly nodding heads will be ones that are graying, like mine.

After passing out of younger years and into adolescence, I, like most women, entered a three-decade phase of my life that included an adolescence and young adulthood that was peppered with the sexual harassment, sexism in the workplace, mommy wars, pay gaps, and gendered put-downs that few females escape. It was a huge chunk of time. The issues feminism took up throughout those years were vital, and they continue to be. I am grateful to all the women and men who battle and continuously fight for women's equal rights, reproductive system rights, and freedom from violence and harassment. It is gutsy and necessary work.
