This is our journey. We can guide each other and support one another on this journey. We help each other see what’s around the corner, remind each other to embrace the beauty that is on this route of life and help each other over the speed bumps and detours. Remembering that the goodness of life happens while we are on the move exploring the ups and downs of it.
We all have preconceived ideas of what old age will be like as we are kids. As we get older we begin to think, “40 is not that old.” I’m gonna be 53 and In my mind, I’m a lot younger than that. My kids have to tell me to turn down my music because it’s too loud.
I’m in no hurry to let my hair go gray. Some women I know embrace their gray hair. That’s great.
Aging is a personal journey and there is only one way to do aging, and that’s the way that makes you feel best about yourself.
If you wanna buy a Harley and head out on the highway then, by all means, do that!!
If you like your gray hair long and wanna wear a bikini at the beach, I say, “Oh heck yes!”
On the other hand, there are folks who want to be just like their grandparents when they grow older and that may have been the more conservative type. That’s perfectly fine too.
The caveat: Is how you feel now, working for you?
That’s what my blog EmbracingAging.us is about. I myself would like to feel my best and be in the best health.
I lean toward the healthy lifestyle approach to aging so that we are able to do whatever, whenever we want to.
If this sounds like something that interests you, then stick around for solutions to problems like weight loss, low energy, pain management, and the like through healthy living.
I don’t have all the answers. I do however have a love for life and living it to the fullest and it is my wish and my hope to facilitate an honest engaging discussion about what we can do together as a community of boomers, gen x’s, gen y’s and anyone else who needs or wants to participate in this exploration of the aging process and living our best lives. Aging is inevitable but we can make sure we are thriving not just surviving this life experience.
Here are samples of subjects we’ll explore and contemplate :
- mental health
- relationships, with our partners/spouses, parents, our children, and grandchildren
- recipes, using anti-inflammatory foods and spices that provide energy and relieve pain
I look to others and enjoy a discussion about the changes and opportunities that growing older offers each of us.
