Don’t answer that!
What I’m really wondering is, what about our life gets better as we age? I mean—REALLY age.
Early in life, the benefits of growing older are many and fairly clear.
- Our personal freedom increases
- Exciting new careers await us
- New relationships
- No more high school!!!!
The world of positive possibilities seems endless. Unfortunately, as we continue to age, this little globe of possibilities seems to shrink, and let’s be honest, becomes a bit more difficult to define as positive.
- New aches!
- New pains!
- New wrinkles!
- (There was more to this list, but I can’t remember it)
So, here’s my challenge to you: remember Olga, the 91-year-old track star? Olga found a way to grow old, not only gracefully, but also with pizzazz! While I’m sure her list contains aches, pains and a bit of memory loss—CLEARLY, it also contains a long list of positives.
What do you find awesome about aging?
