Typically in discussing the process of aging we begin to talk about the declines that occur. We want to know how to avoid or improve the pain, the weakness, or the inability to live how we are used to living at a younger age.
This method not only focuses on the negative it ignores the amazing opportunity that we receive to live another day!
Living to old age is not the norm of our species, those who lived into their late 80's or 90's were an anomaly. Yet, now with the advances of medical science and better hygiene, we all must plan to live at least to 90 years old.
This may be a bit frightening to some as we watch our loved ones get older and witness decline, but with another day comes another opportunity to expand our knowledge and accomplish our goals.
We invite you today to watch this amazing TED talk by David Steindl-Rast. He exudes joy and sets an example in how gratefulness allows us to experience aging in a more positive light!
