Excerpt from Natural Awakenings article: Authentic Living - Kim Kane

The truth is by living our best life, we mirror we do believe in what matters most. By this very act we create space for others to do the same.


Living our best life helps us to stay focused. We are given clarity in deciding what we need in order to move forward...

...So in the end, authentic living is not about moving mountains. It is about all the small everyday moments of being kind, being authentic and living a life of gratitude.


To send the message: 'It all matters', we need to act as if it does.

What a great honor and delight to be featured on KARE 11 afternoon news.

Thank you to Pat Evans for making this interview feel comfortable and for taking the time to help a girl feel special.


In gratitude...

This Is Where It All Began...

(S)he-ro Women's Gatherings

One of the goals I had in writing this book on women and aging was to interview approximately 200 women, aged 45 and above from as many walks of life and backgrounds as possible. As a result, I have had the pleasure of meeting many beautiful, kind, and diverse women 'of a certain age', who have become my she-ro and mentor. What  wonderful collective voices of wisdom I heard from all of these women.  

My desire in interviewing these women was to capture some of their words and experiences and inter-weave those things into the various stories within my book.

What happened was magical. I was allowed into the inside world of these women and I felt a great sense of privilege and gratefulness as they shared their stories with me about life as they age. I will forever be touched in a way that cannot be described.

Never under estimate the power of women! Sparkle on...

in great gratitude...
