This “thought for the day” companion calendar with practical lifeskill tips is for women, and those who love them, who need a friend to laugh with them, cry with them…and believe for them when they can’t. Someone who knows about the crazy thoughts, the gloom and doom, the oh. . . so tired body, and the yawns and sighs! With menopause, the daily life routines and that “to do” list seem to be just too much to take.

May “Where Went My Want To?” help ease your way through your many questions, challenges, and possibilities awaiting you. And yes, those who are quoted come from all walks of life.

What Others Say. . .

“Most of us do not make the interrelated wellness connections among choosing a job, managing our money, living our values in our relationships, or even playing and having some fun. Sharon has done a masterful, creative job helping us make that connection in Where Went My Want To?. The synergy she brings to her thought-for-the-day calendar is not just for women navigating through the “pause” but also for men who seek to understand and share the journey together. Thank you Sharon for the daily gems of wit, wisdom, and even whimsy.”
John W. Travis, MD (physician & The Wellness Workbook, How to Achieve Enduring Health and Vitality author)

“Of the many worthy thought-for-a-day publications helping women and those who love them journey through menopause, Sharon’s “Where Went My Want To?” is a remarkable contribution. Her uniquely crafted self-reflection journal reveals Sharon’s ability to inspire and capture an authentic connection with those who shared their stories as life happens. I encourage all who wonder where your “want to” went, pick up a copy and begin your journey of self-discovery. You may just find your “want to” come alive and welcome you home where you belong. Times of transition, change and disruption are wonderful moments for us to reflect on what to let go so new parts of us can emerge on our journey to wholeness.”
