“Aging is not “lost youth,” but a new stage of opportunity and strength.”

Hi! I’m Rebecca Calhoun

                                                                                                                                      Rebecca in the vineyard

I want to welcome you to the Crone Community!

I started The Creative Crone blog as a way to build a community of women like me who want to create a joyful, active retirement. 

I am on a continual quest to live my best life, even if I don't always practice what I preach. Follow along as we journey together into our crone years!  Get involved by sharing with me in the comments. I look forward to hearing your voice!

In my private membership site you will find educational resources to guide you through this new stage of life. My dream is to help other women like myself live happy, healthy and financially secure lives. 

We can all grow and learn from each other!

How I Stopped Peezing, and You Can Too!

How to Stop Peezing

I like many things about getting older, but wetting myself every time I sneeze, cough, pick up something heavy, run or jump isn't one of them. 

Peezing is very common for women over 60.

Because wetting yourself after your toddler years is somewhat embarrassing, we tend not to talk about it. Unfortunately, however, urinary incontinence is very common!

Especially as we age. 

In fact:

  • 15% of women between 40 and 49
  • 25% of women ages 60-69
  • 38% of women 70 and older suffer from urinary incon…
