If you don’t embrace any other idea presented in the Principals of Successful Aging series, Embrace this one!
Know that age has nothing to do with the ability to impact someone’s life. If anything, it becomes easier with advancing age because of fewer inhibitions and life experience.
The positive part of gaining years is the wisdom we gain, and a more enlightened understanding of which things in life are really important in the long run.
It’s not the type of house you live in, or car you drive, it’s the memories you keep and the experiences you create that last, and make a difference in the lives around you.
With age we lose the fear of what others might think because we know that our opportunity to do what we want is on a time clock and we have none of it to waste.
We get to be crazy, not act our age, act on impulse and say what we think because we know that anyone who cares for us will still care, those who disapprove are not worth our time, and those who need us to be our authentic selves are waiting for us to show up.
Be your outrageous self…that’s where greatness lies!
