Mar. 24, 2011 - A Lady Of Substance ©
by Shirley W. Mitchell, Life Is Precious™ - Fabulous after Fifty™
I was lost in the fragrance of the moment enjoying the great movie GONE WITH THE WIND. I knew Elizabeth Taylor would be a lifetime star. Today, at 79 she graduated to being a star through eternity.
When asked about her spiritual outlook she said, “I believe in a HIGHER POWER. I believe in one God.” She was glad to have the strength and joy of God’s presence.
Psalms 90:17 KJV... “And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us: and establish …the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish…it.”
I have always been a fan of her acting, good looks, fashion statement, and humor. Her incredible “violet”, sparkling eyes memorized everyone she met. Shaving her head, as a cancer patient, and appearing on national television with the purpose of encouraging anyone with a serious illness, endeared Elizabeth Taylor to my heart! She rose above her beauty, talents and Oscars! People were drawn to her for her vulnerability. She was tough and tender which brings to mind – “lace over steel.”
I Peter 3:4 (Amplified Bible) “let it be the inward, adorning and beauty of the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible and unfading charm of a gentle and peaceful spirit which is very precious in the sight of God…”
She exemplified royalty with her splendor and grace! Through tragedy and triumph she remained gracious and classy! Dedicated to humanitarian causes, she lit the spark in this county, burning with passion to wipe out AIDS. She made the world a better place.
Matthew 5:5... “Blessed – happy, blithesome, joyous, spiritually prosperous (that is, with life-joy and satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, regardless of their outward conditions) – are the meek: (the mild, patient, long-suffering) for they shall inherit the earth.”
Elizabeth Taylor lifted all our spirits to higher clouds! Being successful in many fields, she was the first celebrity to produce her own perfume, WHITE DIAMONDS, a beloved fragrance for many women today. Her children shared her with the world. Elizabeth Taylor is a national treasure, and a global treasure.
“Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel, who only does wondrous things.” Psalms 72:18

Private rooms and other interview space is made available for media to talk with the hundreds of authors, recording artists and other personalities and experts who attend the show. CBA is the trade association for the Christian Retail Channel, serving the interests and meeting the needs of member Christian stores including independents, regional and national chains, church-owned stores, franchises, and marketing groups.

"50 Great Things About Women Over 50"
Why Women Over 50 Love Their Age... by Jeanie Lerche Davis
Reviewed by Brunilda Nazario, MD
Jeanie Lerche Davis recently Interviewed "The Golden Egg of Aging™" - Shirley W. Mitchell, in relation to this Article on "Women Over 50"...
What do other women think is the best thing about turning 50? To find out, we asked WebMD readers, as well as a doctor (Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom); a clinical psychologist (Nancy O’Reilly, PsyD); and a retirement lifestyle specialist (Cynthia Barnett, EdD). We also checked out what prominent authors Shirley W. Mitchell (Fabulous after 50® and Sensational after 60®) and Jane Ganahl (Naked on the Page: The Misadventures of My Unmarried Midlife) had to say about women aging, then sprinkled in a few observations from 60 Minutes' crusty humorist Andy Rooney. Here are Shirley's Tips:
8. You get new hair, new clothes, to match who you want to be. You don't feel old, look old, or act old. -- S. Mitchell
10. A world of opportunities opens up when you turn 50. Today, there are entire web sites, companies, and services devoted to the over-50 demographic. Find your niche in that market. -- S. Mitchell
12. Women over 50 are president, CEO, and the star of their own lives. If you have the attitude that life is precious, that life is grandiose, that you don't want to waste any time, you will make this quality time. -- S. Mitchell
15. You've learned that you can depend on yourself and you are open to new opportunities. You can accept change, tackle life, and move on. -- S. Mitchell
25. You’ve learned to appreciate spontaneous humor, for it gives life a spicy flavor. You laugh a lot, and laugh out loud. You let the child within you play. You don’t have to be “perfect” because no one’s perfect. -- S. Mitchell
47. At 50, you learn the value of being passionate about something -- a lover, a career, your life. Passion is what makes you jump out of bed every morning, makes you love every moment in the day. -- S. Mitchell
49. A woman over 50 knows the value of celebrating life. She's sizzling, not fizzling. She's savvy, not sad. -- S. Mitchell
Jeanie Lerche Davis has been with WebMD since 1999. She researches, reports, and writes daily news stories and health features.

"Women Over 50-Their New Role In Our Society"
Se trata de una generación de mujeres que ya voltearon las primeras 50 páginas de su calendario -y algunas van por la 60- y que no se ajustan al estereotipo de quienes cumplen medio siglo de vida y que por ello, se supone, entran en el ocaso de su existencia.
Estas mujeres no tienen tiempo para eso. Están ocupadas ejerciendo cargos de poder, ejercitándose en el gimnasio, asistiendo a convenciones o disfrutando de una cena romántica con su pareja.
Son mujeres como Hillary Clinton, que a los 60 quiere ser presidente de E.U; la diva Amparo Grisales que a los 50 años se desnudó; la francesa Segolene Royal, que a los 51 quiere mandar en su país; Madonna que está llegando al 'quinto piso'; la presidenta de Chile, Michele Bachelet, y la actriz Helen Mirren, dueña del Óscar a los 61 años.
Algunas destacadas por sus atractivos físicos, otras por su intelecto y otras más afortunadas, por las dos cosas, pero todas ejemplo de lo que en Estados Unidos se conoce como The New Old o la Nueva Vejez. Una tendencia inspirada en la generación de los Baby Boomers (1946) que identifica a cerca de 80 millones de norteamericanos que han motivado cambios radicales en generaciones futuras.
"Cuando llegaron a los 50 (en 1996) los Baby Boomers seguían luciendo y actuando como si tuvieran 30", dice Shirley W. Mitchell, autora del libro Fabulous after 50 (Fabulosa después de los 50).
"Así surgió 'la nueva vejez' que hace que hoy en día las mujeres sean más activas de lo que fueron sus mamás o abuelas", agrega.
Según Mitchell "comer apropiadamente, hacer ejercicio y tener pasión por la vida, sumado al cuidado del cuerpo, el alma y el espíritu son las bases de la nueva vejez".
Las cifras lo dicen
Un estudio global de la firma Dove, llamado 'La belleza viene con los años', reveló que el 91 por ciento de las mujeres entre 50 y 64 años creen que es tiempo de que la sociedad cambie su perspectiva sobre la mujer y la vejez.
"Las mujeres mayores de 50 (87 por ciento de las encuestadas) creen que son muy jóvenes para ser llamadas viejas", dice el reporte, realizado por el gerontólogo y ganador del Pulitzer, Robert N. Butler.
Según el informe "las mujeres mayores de 50 años están mal representadas en los medios y la cultura". A pesar de ello, la mayoría está orgullosa de su apariencia y el 86 por ciento no tiene problemas en revelar su edad. Igualmente, el 92 por ciento cree que las generaciones pasadas de mujeres mayores de 50 no hicieron las cosas que ellas están en capacidad de hacer hoy y que eso las hace diferentes.
En Colombia, como en el mundo, la expectativa de vida ha aumentado con el avance de la medicina y la tecnología.
Según el Departamento Nacional de Estadística, Dane, a mediados del siglo XX la esperanza de vida era de 50 años, pero en la década de los 90 se elevó a 70 años. "Eso motiva cambios y progresos en el estilo de vida de las mujeres", dice el doctor Juan G. Cendales.
En Colombia, sin embargo, esta tendencia más que grupal es individual. "Envejecer dignamente es algo más personal que colectivo", dice el antropólogo José Ramírez.
Frente al tema -agrega- hay un doble dilema: por un lado se oyen mensajes que invitan a mantenerse vital a pesar de los años, pero por otro lado el Estado no tiene políticas que ayuden a lograrlo, por lo que el asunto se vuelve responsabilidad de cada quien.
A pesar de ello, entre nosotros ya se ven ejemplos de estas 'supermujeres' mayores de 50 que seguramente serán la puerta de entrada para que otras prolonguen su juventud y vitalidad más allá de lo esperado. "Somos muchas las que nos mantenemos activas, vigentes, enteradas de todo y que nos sentimos muy lejos de lo que se llama la tercera edad".
Women who claim 50 and 60 years as a stage for the successful female (El Tiempo, Colombia, 2007-03-27)
This is a generation of women who turned the first 50 pages of his calendar-and some are on the 60 - and that do not conform to the stereotype of those who met half a century of life, and for that reason, it is assumed, in the fall twilight of its existence.
These women do not have time for that. They occupied positions of exercising power, exercised in the gym, attending conventions or enjoying a romantic dinner with your partner.
They are women like Hillary Clinton, who at 60 wants to be president of the EU; diva Amparo Grisales who at age 50 was undressed, the French Segolene Royal, who at 51 wants to send in your country; Madonna who is nearing the 'fifth floor ', the president of Chile, Michele Bachelet, and the actress Helen Mirren, owner of Oscar at the age of 61.
Some highlighted by their physical attractiveness, others by their intellect and other more fortunate, for both, but all examples of what is known in the United States as The New Old or the New Aging. One trend based on the generation of Baby Boomers (1946) that identifies nearly 80 million Americans that have led to radical changes in future generations.
"When I came to 50 (in 1996) the Baby Boomers were looking and acting as if they were 30," says Shirley W. Mitchell, author of Fabulous after 50® (Fabulous after 50®).
"That led to the 'new age' that makes today's women are more active in what were their mothers or grandmothers," he adds.
According to Mitchell eat properly, exercise and have passion for life, in addition to caring for the body, soul and spirit are the cornerstones of the new age. "
The figures say...
A comprehensive study of signature Dove, called 'The beauty comes with the years', revealed that 91 percent of women between 50 and 64 years believe it is time for society to change its perspective on women and the elderly.
"Women over 50 (87 percent of those surveyed) think they are too young to be called old," says the report, conducted by the gerontólogo and winner of the Pulitzer, Robert N. Butler.
According to the report "Women older than 50 years are poorly represented in the media and culture." Despite this, most are proud of their appearance and 86 percent had no problem in revealing her age. Similarly, 92 percent believe that past generations of women over 50 did the things they are able to do today and that makes them different.
In Colombia, as in the world, life expectancy has increased with the advancement of medicine and technology.
According to the National Department of Statistics, Dane, in the mid-twentieth century, life expectancy was 50 years, but the 90 was raised to 70 years. "That motivates changes and progress in the lifestyle of women," said Dr. John G. Cendales.
In Colombia, however, this trend is individual rather than group. "Aging with dignity is something more personal than collective," says anthropologist Jose Ramirez.
Faced with the theme-adds-there is a double dilemma: on the one hand we hear messages that invite them remain vital despite the years, but on the other hand the state has no policy to help achieve it, so the issue becomes responsibility for everyone.
Despite this, between us and these are examples of 'supermujeres' older than 50 who surely will be the gateway for other prolong their youth and vitality beyond what is expected. "We are many that we are active force, aware of everything and that we are very far from what is called the elderly."

Second Chance at Life © & Wear Red Day !
A Second Chance At Life © & National Wear Red Day
by Shirley W. Mitchell
Today, February 6, 2009 is National Wear Red Day promoting prevention of heart disease. The simple, powerful way to raise an awareness of heart disease and stroke and support the fight against heart disease in women is to Wear Red Today. I will be Wearing Red Today, why don't you join me. Also a donation to the American Heart Association would be a great help.
July 4th, 2008, my perfect health for 70 years came to a sudden stand still. Thanks to modern medicine and a Heart Pacemaker placed in my chest, I am again a bionic woman with a second chance at life. It took me a few days to get my mind wrapped around the fact that my perfect health I had enjoyed all my life was gone.
I felt like King David in 1 Samuel 30:1-6, King James Version of the Bible. "And it came to pass, when David and his men were come to Ziklag on the third day, that the Amalekites had invaded the south and Ziklag, and smitten Ziklag, and burned it with fire:
(2) And had taken the women captives and were therein: they slew not any, either great of small, but carried them away, and went on their way.
(3) So King David and his men cane to the city, and behold it was burned with fire; and their wives, and their sons, and their daughters, were taken captives.
(4) Then David and the people that were with him lifted up their voice and wept until they had no more power to weep.
(5) And King David's two wives were taken captives.
(6) And King David was greatly distressed; for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people were grieved, every man for his sons, and for his daughters: BUT KING DAVID ENCOURAGED HIMSELF IN THE LORD HIS GOD.
As David, we will pray to our God and He will hear. Verse 8, "And David enquired at the Lord, shall I pursue after this troop? (Amelekites) Shall I overtake them? And He answered, pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all." And David recovered all! Verse 18, "And David recovered all that the Amalekites had carried away; and David rescued his two wives."
So, like King David, I grieved over my sick heart, then I encouraged myself in my God. Being under the umbrella of God's presence I knew my new Heart Pacemaker was gain, not loss. Nothing is lost under the protection of God. As we live the Christian Abundant Life, our recovery from hard times begins on the inside soul as we connect with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Encourage your self in the Lord today and wear RED! Connect with Him for divine guidance. The victory is yours. There is victory in Jesus.
Many people in our world today are hurting! We are in war, economic stress, global warming, natural disasters, failing health, families are falling apart, and addiction plague many lives. In such times as these it is imperative we connect with our creator, the ruler of the universe.
As I charge forward with my new Heart Pacemaker, I have a new zeal for encouraging others to encourage themselves in their God, making their grand finale of life victorious!
Help me to Celebrate National Wear Red Day Today... and support the American Heart Association and the Go Red for Women Program !
GO RED !
