The coast or the rollercoaster of empty nesting.

I think I like to write about this phase of my life. It’s a bumpy ride where attitude does triumph over the common ailments of those going through this phase of:

  • Loneliness
  • Disappointment
  • Well being ( physical & mental health
  • Increasing reliance on medication & meetings with medical care professionals
  • Decreased and rapid depletion of financial resources through this phase
  • Dried up pool of “quality” employers who respect and value 50s knowledge, experience,

This is meme: who I really am, speaking via either @ optioneerJM being friends not just the smart @MisterSocialFave Philippe Trebault & Gratzy his partner in life & business boosting Social Fave 2B the best 4 #socialnetworking site & Tool and the first recipient of a http://www.graFX.online recognition for creating a powerhouse cast of characters who mutualities in favour helping each other in unique ways, instead an online Brotherhood + Sisterhood of powerful online influence [ to be backed by numbers not boasted fake information that risks being considered real and crafted in fake reality for not just the lonely hearts clubhouse founders. Check out http://www.blogspot.optioneerjm.ca blog that speaks to aging Yuppies coasting through empty nesting (and all of the surprises) who’s readers appear [by studying the #numbers or #data available from blogging, tweeting [ #socialmedia verb as in action or doing] to understand your tribe. I remember a fellow blogger I met on @LinkedIn whom I shared great synergies, in 150% professional manner … we check in once and awhile to give feedback on objective opinion on what branding messages I send out by blogs and that http://www.blogspot.meanderingsABOUT.com seemed to be catching on with the 50+ tribe … so I find myself speaking to that more and more: a safe platform of expression without plagiarism but plenty of advocacy floating around with inspirational messages, art, scientific knowledge or literary glee and artistic splendour settling as the cream of the crop in spokespersons for their generation, generously sharing advice or tips that Facebook champions and Pinterest categorizes pockets of boards where one can store its nuggets by topic or category that appeals to the aging Yuppy soul. Now Word Press’ platform springborded my writing by its creation of community of creation + creators + innovative persons that fall into same cascading symphony of blooming inspirational beyond positive or beautiful vibe with its own beat. Taking time to reflect and focus on what’s working really well or where you need an added kick in energy that is healthy, helpful & harmonious < do this now, Close your eyes or not depending on focus strength over distraction proned.

    Donating fuels the soul while satisfies the need to give

    I’ve donated at least 8 orange bags full of clothes and countless pairs of shoes or sandals to @ValuVillage and haven’t gone thru my boots closet yet …. its hard work downsizing my closet as a clothes/shoes/purses/accessories and I’m barely halfway >> the curse of a fashionista fighting erupts 50s > in the headspace of counting down to official retirement or dedication to painting and writing Yuppy FT.

    I’d love to find 1 or 2 great clients with high quality goals to create elegant websites and #SocialMedia … if you know of anyone looking for this> remotely would work well with keeping an eye on my #HunksterHubster as he continues his long recovery journey after surviving a #brainaneurysm last Feb2018. I’m passionate about being an advocate for Caregivers because Canada drops the ball in this important area needing better financial assistance and resources for long term caregivers after insurance benefits payments decrease to only 55% income is ludicrous when you factor the amount of therapy, specialists, tests, doctors, is required to attend them. p.s. brain injury automatically suspends driving license > and so many other things I didn’t know nor prepared for.

    My Millennial children are working full time, attending university FT+working (even after parents had Educational Plans as they were born, who relies on scholarships and working 1+FT to survive. Then again, writing and educating others while sharing online (social media) could attract a sponsor for my websites or monetary brand ambassador income .. or benefits could be bartering services so no money changes hands…

    The best investment this year: [HINT~they’re shoes aka clogs] my sister accidentally forgot them here after she came to stay with me for a couple weeks. During this phase of deep cleaning they weren’t that hard to find. They add about 3” three inches to my stature, they lift me up in more ways than one; I don’t need to wear socks with them and it feels like they’re moulding to my foot. My feet don’t ever get cold nor sweaty those heat-filled days.

    I will post this review on Amazon and request compensation of a free pair a month that will still take me years to choose just one from a vast array and color or designs > both abstract & aesthetic designs. Colourful or conservative fashion taste will find one that appeals to everyone ~ regardless of gender!

    I think my OPINION MATTERS and is catching on to algorithms as more and more engagement expands. I’ll have to back track to some stats to dig deeper as to who is helping get the word [or art or image or science] and sending positive folks my way. Thank you. XO jeannette

    I’d settle on being the Queen of something

    Sir BUDDY:  My sidekick and assistant 



    In a meandering mood, without any particular destination in mind, online, of course.  Definitely, with some great mood selections from my really cool playlists [ I say myself attesting to the many hours I categorized my iTunes music library in a mood setting and that means both from where I physically am to where I am continually striving for better moods.

    When one is struggling with depression, it means that they are likely grasping for safety nets of positive inspiration or motivation.  Giving back.  Giving what one knows or has sharing honest advice based on one’s own unique perspective in whatever that may represent:  as a person (wife, mother, friend, daughter, sister, aunt, outlaw or in-law I may be.  

    Buddy avoided a younger dog-sibling by the masterful decree by HH that I could NOT adopt a dog



    I’ve discovered a new identity emerging from the wisp and whoosh of inspiration that glimmers across one’s screen.  Maybe I’ve been hovering in a lot of different areas, appearing scattered, however, there is still consistency from my original vision/mission statement:  “To help others go from average to REMARKABLE”.  I see that slogan here and there.  Maybe I can do that creatively, who knows.

    But wandering around, I saw posts and what felt like a flurry of activity from FACEBOOK ~ wow, who’s radar did I get on now?  Or is the merge between KRED and EMPIRE really trying to outdo the other battle of supremacy on leading edge Artificial Intelligence by throwing more and more things across your computer screen, daring you to click on what they’ve carefully selected you to view.




    I hope it doesn’t mean that we’re closer to a Brave New World (was that the one I read in Grade 12 English about mind control, big brother?) ~ will have to fact check.  My growing list of fact checking is getting annoying.  I’d rather write than check facts, something that I would spend hours doing when I first began blogging as optioneerJM seven years ago.



    I’m amazed at the craftiness of Facebook tempting me with MEMORIES and growing that part of AI which is another way of saying Automated Internet …. what you do, where you click, how often you click is being captured for your entertainment or knowledge value, which ever your behavior predicts that you have a tendency to go to or click on.

    Regardless, I firmly plan my crown upon my head as the official new dear abby of online.  Why?  It’s fun and it seems to help people and more questions keep coming for me to answer with more people viewing my answers daily.  Although sales was my first forage on to the social media spectrum, social media certainly follow in a natural graduation.  Now I am being invited to try products and be beta first responders/testers.  It’s all very cool.  However, nothing I do online makes any money.  The pathetic truth that it is.



    My gauntlet is tossed.  I challenge 2018 to bring me compensation so that I can continue to create:  both painted images or written thought.  Well enough to quit a full time job since it requires around the clock, if not attention, connected.  If I get a little more honest by evaluating my own numbers (I gush at the thought to play around with them) ………… if Dear Abby it is, then voila a Queen of Advice can be born.



    I will be re-posting on my other blogs.  The goal is to create images that portray the mood or character of my blog, then create a page that it all blends and compliments each other.  That is a big TO DO/GET’R’DONE for 2018 I don’t know what does?  Suggestions welcome.

    Nevertheless or irregardless as his highness would say (as crowned from the Hunkster Hubster to His Highness or HH starting in the countdown to 2018.)  The following advice has gotten traction on Quora.



    Whatayaknow
    Is what you know.  You know what you know.  You answer with your best face forward with integrity and honesty to strengthen your resolve:  questions posed by anyone and everyone, then voted by anyone, and the tricksters or smartsters at Quora are putting more answers forward to you answer.  So much so, you can start to distinguish the ones from genuine users with profiles and others suggested by Quora.  Quora is telling me what answers and how I answer some questions is well received, therefore, they are now padding my ANSWERS banner with a sprinkling or mixture of both.

    Here is an example on the traction and reaction from 23 hours ago:

    Jeannette Marshall
    Jeannette Marshall, a mother, a wife, an employee, a manager, an executive, an entrepreneur

    Honestly?

    Well I want to be a Queen, princess at the very least. With it the responsibility of always being fashionably dressed, impeccable coif, an assistant, a butler, a maid, a financier, at the very least. People curtsy or bowing upon meeting. I would wear gloves to avoid germs, dirt, disease.
    I am financially reliable since I can provide my own tiara, having a selection of a few.
    I am humble, I try to help others without any monetary reward. Although, treasuring honesty, admit that I salvitate at the thought of compensation from people reading my gripes, quips, tips, trips posts.
    I am truly sorry!
    I got sidetracked, totally disregarding the question. I apologize. Oopsie.
    Simply?
    Go to the Nobel website and determine under which category you feel more aligned with: peace, literature, for examples, then study who have been the most recent recipients that you more closely identify with: can adopt a believable adaptation of anyone of them by providing the skill and talent to stand beside them. Then I’d say:
    Go for it!
    Who is anyone that could contradict YOU?
    YOU are the ONLY person in lives in that house: your brain, body.
