There are over 108 million people in the U.S. alone who are over the age of 50, according to the AARP. That’s a lot of potential “sissies”! Certainly those of us who are lucky enough to have lived awhile are no strangers to the challenges that come with the privilege. But frankly, I don’t see a lot of my contemporaries (or even my 97-year old father’s buddies) aging with cowardice at all. What I do see, is an “anti-aging” culture, who instead of valuing our vibrancy and accomplishments, often marginalizes us, and threatens our dignity, self-esteem, and confidence.
I believe that aging is something to be grateful for (not everyone got the chance to still be on the planet). It is not something we could–or even should have to fight, resist, or modify at any cost–because sometimes the price is really too high. And I’m not just talking about dollars and cents.
My goal in starting a new website, was inspired by my upcoming book “Aging Happy: How to Knock Out the Nonsense and Enjoy the Best Years of Your Life“. I wanted to bring you news, information, and inspiration–based mostly on the behavioral science research findings–on how to make each year of your life the best it can be. I hope the blog posts I plan to fill this site with will give you the confidence you need to make changes that will help you let go of the patterns that no longer serve you, and adopt the behaviors that will afford you more joy.
