I'm going on autumn adventure, so taking a break from blog posts for the month of November. I'll be traveling and having some much needed family time, but of course, I’ll be keeping up with my writing.
Please let me leave you with a thought to ponder by Crispin Glover:
I’ve written in a previous blog post about older members of my family passing away, and how it feels incredibly discouraging at times. Let me just be blunt: How can we better cope when our loved ones die (and not just from old age)?
Everyone grieves differently, but I’d like to share something that helps me with the grieving process.
Know that you are the perfect age. Each year is special and precious, for you shall only live it once. Be comfortable with growing older. ~Louise Hay
Welcome To My Blog!
I'm so glad you stopped by! There are many bloggers, so what can my few little pages on the web offer to you? For me, the answer has always been the same: I want more positive words "out there" about aging. I saw mainstream responses to getting older and found them often unappealing. I didn’t want many of those options, so I supported the one I do: an encouraging and enthusiastic response to the changes the years bring. I'm heading toward 40, and I think a positive outlook is important because if I die tomorrow, or I die when I’m 999, I’ve not lived a life where I’ve cringed at each new year.
Is my way the only way? Of course not. Our response to aging is immensely personal. But it’s not limited, and that’s the secret. You don’t have to tackle the hardships of aging the way others have. I hope you will join me in forging our own path and shaping our own reality: focusing on the positive, the special, and the parts of aging that make us smile and are in store for those who live (to be cliché) to see another day.
