I wrote a blog about the problems of aging because I believe we can share and learn and face them together, but then I thought that is not the whole picture. I am as happy as I have ever been so it isn’t all bad.
I had an incredible year last year and I upsized instead of downsized which might have been really stupid but I am not going to unwind until I have to. I also made a commitment to another relationship. I don’t have to go to work and I feel good most days. I have less energy but I am happy to sit still as long as I don’t get bored. If I do get bored, I am able to find an endless number of interesting things to do. I know I am lucky and that I just need to live and be grateful.
Happy thoughts. We have to stay focused on those. It takes an effort to progress at any age, but we can do it if we really try. There are amazing people who make a positive difference in the world even though they are in the worst of health or they are beset by all sorts of problems. We need to focus on making a positive difference regardless if it is small, in our life and the lives of others.
Many things are treasured more and bring more joy when they are not taken for granted. I Just started a list of old age joys and I hope that there is a much longer list.
