Honey Good, the Voice of Women After 50

Susan “Honey” Good serves as the voice of women after 50 all over the world. Years ago, Honey started a diary hoping it would help her find a new purpose in life. Feeling the need to open up her thoughts to others, Honey soon turned her diary into a website.

Her life stories and musings immediately resonated with women 50 and over, from all walks of life. In Honey’s storytelling, they found echoes of their own experiences. Her heartaches and over-the-top joys mirrored their own. Honey became their friend and confidante.

Today, HoneyGood.com and its related social media sites are a community of kindred spirits where Honey and her female readers interact, share, give each other support, and celebrate life after 50.




Honey Good, in her own words

Hi! I’m Susan Good: wife, mother, daughter, sister, mother-in-law, girlfriend and grandmother to 25, who affectionately call me Honey. I am also a woman over 50 years old…but I don’t let that define who I am, not one bit. At heart, I’m a survivor – multiple times over.

When you look at me now, it might seem like I am just a very lucky girl, full of gratitude for my blessed and wonderful life. And that’s certainly how I feel, too. But what I have is the result of the way I have chosen to embrace life, day after day, no matter what came my way. Just like everybody else, I have experienced the bitter and the sweet, tremendous joys and equally great – perhaps even greater – sorrows.

Like I always say, I’ve earned a PhD in life! I’ve endured financial hardships, the heartbreak of widowhood, the horror of a suicide in the family, the unknowns of cancer, the challenges of building a blended family… and more. I have truly been through it all and continue to be, as I grow older.


Yet, I am still standing strong. And I feel more beautiful and visible than ever because of it, even now that I’m well past 50 years of age.

I have learned that if I accept life on life’s terms and commit to making the most of whatever it throws at me, I can overcome anything. And so can you! That thought can give us great power, especially as we age and are faced with many destabilising changes.

That’s why, through Honey’s Diary and my new project – MOXIE! – I have decided to show other women 50 and over how to keep taking a big bite out of life – with humor and style – and get a kick out of it, like I do every day!

So, join the conversation, embrace life after 50 and be vibrant, be visible, be YOU.

I believe that...

  • The best way to face our challenges is to keep taking a big bite out of life.
  • Our scars are there to remind us we can survive anything
  • When life gives us lemons, we just have to make ourselves some sweet lemonade
  • If we take the time to smile, laugh, play and engage in life every day, everything else will fall into place
  • Outer beauty is a reflection of inner beauty
  • Growing older doesn’t mean we have to stop daring and exploring

Honey’s Favorite Things

Family and friendships. They are all that matters.

Nature. Nurturing, soothing, and invigorating.

The world. I want to see, I want to learn, I want to grow.

Writing… and the silence at the time of day when I write.

Fashion. I’m a woman, can’t live without it!
