You're Not Acting Your Age Are You?
This Week's Simple Tip
It is the season of my birthday so it seems only appropriate to write about age. While I am thrilled to be healthy and comfortable, I don't have quite the same enthusiasm as my grand-nephew who said on his birthday "yesterday I was four, and today I am five!"
Society in the U.S. has a tendency to make people feel invisible as they age. But have you ever noticed that not ALL aging people are treated as 'old?' We are as old as we project ourselves to be.
It was best summarized by a minister at a memorial service I attended years back. He said "unlike those grumpy, boring old people no one wants to be around, Becky was a delight to be with up until her very last day."
We may not be able to do everything we could do in our twenties, but there are lots of things we can do now that we could not do before! Watch how this 84-year-old catches the America's Got Talent judges off-guard :)
This Week's Focus
This week, regardless of your age, think about how "old" you come across to others. Are you projecting yourself in a elderly, lethargic manner, or in a youthful, exuberant manner?
