all about kim kane

Kim lives a life of gratitude. It came from the

realization that she had lived more than she will.

When she looked over the horizon of life, certain

things became apparent. Be thankful for what you have.

Live your best life. Share what you have learned. Support others on their journeys. And that is exactly what she plans on doing.

Kim wrote her award-winning book, 'Sparkle On...Women Aging in Gratitude'She is also a national speaker on the topic of aging and re-imagining life as a woman of a 'certain age.' She brings her gift of perspective and offers highlights and experiences using humor and a plethora of stories as ways to tie it all together. 


She believes women do not always have to embrace aging. They can re-think aging. It is an exciting time in life. After all, what is the alternative?!

Kim has also been in the educational field for over 35 years. She continues to enjoy working with teenagers (not a typo!) as it brings a youthful perspective to life.

Good to
Silly things...

Being a woman of a certain age, Kim has learned a few things along the way.  

When you get an opportunity to try something new, take it. Nobody ever left this world wishing they hadn't experienced more in life. If there is something you want to do, do it. Make it happen. Take risks. Give it a try.

Always wear underwear that fit. This may mean you might have to purchase a larger size. Wearing underwear that fit can make or break an entire day. There is no shame in having granny panties. Be comfortable. Be happy.

You can never have too much happy. If eating cookies, nachos or kale salad makes you feel happy, then do it. There are no rules about what foods are to be eaten or when. Do what brings joy for yourself. Sing, skip or walk along the path. Pay attention to all those beautiful moments coming your way. Sleep in. Get up early. Mix stripes with circles.  Just do what makes you feel authentically happy. No limits. No pressure.

Things that matter..


That is what matters most.

To have love is to experience life to its fullest. To give love is to give fully of yourself. No strings attached. Nothing expected in return.

So much has been written about love throughout the years. There are songs, books, poems, plays and movies all about love. It truly is what makes the world go round.

To live this life we are given to the fullest, we need to have love in our life. The love of a child. The love of a spouse. The love of a friend. The love of a family member. The love of life. 


That is what matters most.
