What’s Age Got To Do With It?
I don’t want to be thirty or forty again. Do you? Sure, I may sometimes wish I looked like I’m thirty and felt like I’m thirty, but truth be told I’ve benefited greatly from the experience and wisdom these 56-years have brought me, and I wouldn’t trade them for anything. In fact, what’s age got to do with it, and having fun?
The older I get, the more empowered I feel. To me, this is the prime of my life! And thanks to advancements in science, medicine, and technology, aging, the process of becoming older may take us well into our 80s and even 90s and accordingly, we need to embrace the opportunities it offers!
Thinking that you’re “old” will age you faster than you can count the crow’s feet around your eyes. So the next time you notice yet another gray hair or new wrinkle, ignore it. Instead, focus on the many positives associated with moving into a brand new, and potentially very rich, phase of your life.
It’s Not Time to Wind Down, It’s Time to Gear Up
When you hit the threshold of 55, I can tell you from firsthand experience, something magical happens you are no longer the person you thought you were you are someone else instead!
Who are you? You are now the main character of your story. And you now have the opportunity to write the second half of your story and do the things you’ve always wanted to do—and were afraid to try or didn’t have the time to do. Like travel!
In our youth obsessed society, we‘re meant to believe, it is only the young that has passion that has adventure that has fun – what’s age got to do with it? Nothing!
Contrary to popular wisdom, aging is not ‘lost youth,’ but rather a new stage of opportunity and strength. In other words, it’s our time to shine!
Aging Playfully (and Gracefully)
In case it slipped your mind, having fun and being spontaneous and diving headlong into joy, is a must for all women 55+. And I believe, is a rite of passage! So, why not embrace it – and make the most of it.
George Bernard Shaw has been quoted as saying, “We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing.” So, listen to George and never stop playing and doing things you enjoy!
When we commit to giving ourselves a daily dose of fun, even a half-hour or hour of play a day can help us discover untold happiness. Of course, longer periods of playfulness are optimal. For example a girls weekend camping trip, or a weekend excursion to a theme park.
So, what are you waiting for? You know what to do next… and if you don’t, we can help!
