Mind Matters: Be direct and celebrate the ‘No’

No matter how old we are, life and its concerns continue. I consult at a local retirement community where I meet with the residents individually. An issue that arose recently for one grandly elegant 89-year-old woman has probably been her lifelong theme. And that is, how to be direct in asserting her desires, wishes, wants, even needs.
