Welcome to the second half of your life, or what we believe can be the best half of your life!
Queen of Your Own Life is a philosophy, a decision and an invitation to happiness for women who have made the tough but rewarding journey to the midpoint in their lives. We're excited to be your guides on this next big adventure.
With humor and common sense we will offer you our tried-and-true actions to blast away at the societal tall tale that young is beautiful and old is just old. With our seven simple steps we will help you let go of the negative thoughts that keep you from fully admiring and accepting yourself just the way you are—a woman in full bloom, valuable, sensual, vibrant, wise and more beautiful than ever.
Every significant stage of life is marked by a celebration or ritual—birth, graduation, marriage, even death—yet we have nothing to mark the momentous accomplishment of reaching midlife. That is, unless you count the horrible tradition of over-the-hill birthday parties, complete with black balloons, coffin-shaped cakes and gift bags filled with incontinence supplies. Yuck. That's the "celebration" society sets up for women as we reach midlife? After you follow our easy, straightforward guidelines to claiming your crown, we'll help you plan one hell of a kick-ass Crowning Ceremony, filled with laughter and good friends, that will mark your transition into the glorious second half of your life.
If you have been feeling that the best part of your life is past, then this book will prove to you that there is always something more and that the door to being happy is not only never closed but is just waiting for you to fl ing it open. Remember, you don't have to be twenty to have your whole life ahead of you.
So, let's get going. It's time to become Queen of Your Own Life—if not now, when?

It had great ideas for staging a birthday (though could be another day too) coronation. The friend for whom I had the coronation was so appreciative and she confided that she was feeling down about stepping into the next season of life and that being made "queen of all her domain" brought her back to feeling good about her future.
"Be generous, kind, loving, and brave." So sayeth the Queen.
