Aging Isn’t For Wimps

No matter what age we are, our hearts matter. Of course, we go to the doctor for our palpitations, flutters, and pains, but what about our inner man/woman? That part of us that seizes up or shudders now and then when we feel confronted with some physical task or challenge?
We can laugh, or we can cry.
Or we can prepare for the challenges ahead. Where are you feeling the need for change? Has your doctor recommended a new diet? Do you need to be more serious about doing morning stretches? Maybe a walk in nature will help soothe your cares.

Aging isn’t for wimps, and we are not wimps. There are adventures ahead!

Being Creative

Aging with Humor

Remember being carefree and fearless? Remember listening to Crosby, Stills, and Nash, Sweet Judy Blue Eyes? "Don't let the past remind you of what you are not now." Well, here we are!  “Old age isn’t for sissies” was first noted by Bette Davis but has been quoted by...

Aging Souls

Aging Soul

One part of us never ages. Maybe that is why one of my friends who just celebrated her seventy-first birthday said she doesn’t know how that can be because she thinks of herself as much younger than that. Don’t we all? Don’t we think of ourselves as much younger than...

Aging Gracefully

I was talking to a very dear friend the other day. She was talking about how she feels these days as she is aging. She is unmarried and feels alone. Her eyes are not what they used to be, and she knows her hearing isn't either. She looks at the future, and it feels as...
