Aging sneaks up on you. It's a topic that most of us shy away from. It's uncomfortable to face our shortened lives. But what if this age related decline is the portal to age related growth and transformation? It depends of course. On what decade you are in. What caregiving obligations you have. What your race and socioeconomic status is.
It's hard. And it's harder for some who don't have support.
What can you do to be more at ease with this? Is it ok to age?
What does it mean to "embrace" aging? Is that a myth?
I find that I begin this reflection in my own life, the number one thing of importance is to define these things for myself. To not shy away from being curious.
To realize the great care needed for myself.
