I am so sorry, but something important has come up and I won’t be doing the chat group this afternoon at 4 EST( March 5th). I apologize. Come and say hello any time. Coaches on Wisdo are also available for booking private coaching sessions! If you are a widow, widower or have lost another loved one through death, come to this group or pm me. I may do a Zoom in the near future also. Wisdo likes to have a helper or guide present on Zooms. Would you like to volunteer to help out some time if 4-5 ET would not be too late for you? Let me know so I can run it by Dr Gill.

Hello Wisdo Friends, “Unfortunately, people put more time into planning a trip to Disneyworld than how they’ll spend the next 35 years of their life. The biggest misconception is that retirement’s going to be perfect without any planning or preparation, like something magical will happen. Retirement can be a fantastic life stage. But don’t show up on retirement day and then try figure it out." Don Veto Come discuss this with us at Joyful Retirement on Monday morning at 9 central time as we review the 6 stages of retirement, including setting goals and transition.

Hello, Wisdonians! I hope you will pop in on my group at 4 PM New York Daylight Savings Time today, Friday, March 19th. It is called Widows/Widowers Rebuilding for now though still waiting for Wisdo to change the name. However, anyone who has lost a loved one is welcome to attend and join discussions. It's no fun to do these groups alone so let's have some company and participation please. Today I will share some reflection questions to help you with your grief and some other things to help you in managing and rebuilding life. Also the discussion is open to things you would like to discuss. Almost nothing is off limits as long as we are kind, respectful and open to other opinions and ways of viewing things. Will I see you there?

Hello Everyone: My Friday Group Session at 4 PM Eastern Daylight Savings Time (N.Y. Time) is for those who are widows, widowers or have lost a partner, but others who are interested or have lost a loved one, are always welcomed. Please come to the session on Friday, March 26th if you are free. It will be a texting chat session this week again. I generally have a planned topic or two, but you may also bring issues or questions to the table and we can discuss what is on your hearts and minds. This week my plan is to discuss: HOW CAN COACHING HELP ME THROUGH AND BEYOND MY GRIEF? WHAT IS IT? and also: Discussion--THE BEST VERSION OF MYSELF IS YET TO COME.. Do you believe that statement? Is it possible for you even after you have lost your dear spouse, partner or close loved one? I believe it is probably not, IF you have convinced yourself it isn't possible. Let's talk about that! What else? Well, that depends on what you bring to the table. You make these sessions dynamic. We coaches love to have you attend our sessions, rather than talking to ourselves for an hour or more. Come prepared to chat, to meet each other, or at least to say hi and let us know you're there, if you're shy. You are a valuable part of my community. I see that there are a large number of people who are part of this community, but I would love to meet you in my live sessions. If you are not free at that time, please pop in any time, read what's there and leave some comments. Here's a link directly to my Friday 4 PM group. https://wisdo.com/communities/widowsers-rebuild-lives See you soon! Regards, Coach Iris

Loneliness/Dating and Other Issues After Death of Spouse or Partner-Friday, April 2nd, 4 PM New York Time (DST) A chat group tomorrow-not Zoom This is a group for widows and widowers but others are also welcome if they come with an open mind and not with a lot of pre-judgments. If you have lost someone else close to you, we can support you and be understanding, though  most often the issues are not exactly the same as when you have lost your spouse or life partner. You are still welcome to pop in.

Giving more of yourself than you want to ? No time to enjoy your retirement? Boundaries are essential to healthy relationships and, really, a healthy life. Setting and sustaining boundaries is a skill. Join us at 9am central in Joyful Retirement as we begin a three week discussion into boundaries. This week setting boundaries with your retirement partner and your children. Next week family and friends and week three boundaries with grown children who have not left home or who have moved back in.

Worrying/anxiety is about the anticipation of an event. Your brain starts asking “what if” too many times, and comes up with a lot of answers it doesn’t like. Even if you think you have a solution, you can’t be sure it will work because your crystal ball is on the fritz. So anxiety is often problem solving — but without the solving. Join us at 9 am central time at Joyful Retirement as we discuss ways to stop worrying. Everyone is invited and your participation will be welcome.

I love retirement. This is when you become independent. No boss or policy telling you what to do. No reacting, unless you want to. Depending on your situation, you might have less resources, but you can do what you want, when you want, with what you have.

For many, worrying is often a way to try to predict what the future has in store-a way to prevent surprises and control the outcome. The problem is, it doesn’t work. It’s not possible to predict all the things that can go wrong and trying to does not make the future more predictable. Join us as we talk about some ways to control worrying and put the power to handle life’s problems back in your hands. Everyone is welcome at Joyful Retirement on Monday 9 am central.

Active Listening Given all the listening that we do, you would think we'd be good at it! In fact, most of us are not, and research suggests that we only remember between 25 percent and 50 percent of what we hear. Join us at Joyful retirement on Monday at 9 am central time as we discuss the importance of active mindful listening and some steps to help us get there.
