What I choose is...increasing creativity, contribution, and love-of-life in Aging.
For a couple of years now, I’ve been pondering Aging. Not in a morose way, but in a questioning, challenging way. Menopause and midlife will do that to you.
I have been throwing down a challenge to our mainstream cultural beliefs that generally hold that Aging is a slow but steady process of physical and mental deterioration, diminishment of energy, and a dampening of our passion for life. A withering. Who wants to sign up for that?
And, why does it have to be that way? My clients, friends and colleagues are thriving examples of increasing creativity, contribution, and love-of-life in Aging.
As I was thinking about it, I realized something very powerful: I choose. I choose.
I choose to Wither or Wake Up. This is a choice that I can make in every moment. I may not choose my life circumstances or events, but I do choose my response to them.
Wither or Wake Up.
What do you choose to wake up to?
