Last year I read your book, Goddesses Never Age. I love it and started a book club around it. This list is absolutely a wonderful way to look at how to move forward this year. For the first time in years, I didn’t do New Year’s Resolutions… why… I rarely keep them. I decided instead to go with the flow, accept and love my body and some of the new found curves. I decided to be authentic and stop hiding my deep spirituality from the very traditional religious world I live in (in the Bible belt), I honor others beliefs and I want to acknowledge mine. Today, after reading this article, I once again affirm “I choose to life live from the truth of me!” Thank you Dr. Northrup! You inspire us all.

Interesting article. I would personally define wisdom as an insightful understanding of virtues and vices (not necessarily religious). For example, if someone says: "do not eat too much", this may be right but it does not sound wise. But if someone says: "a good dinner and a bad dinner is often only a few spoons away." While the implied action may be the same, the later sounds wiser because it reflects an insightful understand of temperance. When a person blindly acts according to virtues or resists to vices, he/she may not be happy and successful. But with insightful understanding, the practices of virtues become much more meaningful, and it often leads to long term happiness and success.
