We need to revise how we think of aging. The old paradigm was: You’re born, you peak at midlife, and then you decline into decrepitude. Looking at aging as ascending a staircase, you gain well-being, spirit, soul, wisdom, the ability to be truly intimate, and a life with intention. ~ Jane Fonda
Aging is not ‘lost youth,’ but a new stage of opportunity and strength. It’s a different stage of life, and if you are going to pretend it’s youth, you are going to miss it. You are going to miss the surprises, the possibilities, and the evolution that we are just beginning to know about because there are no role models, no guideposts, and no signs. ~ Betty Friedan
You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream ~ C.S. Lewis
Yep, it’s my birthday. Hope you’ve enjoyed this little pep talk I’m giving myself. Have a great day!
