    Aging With Dignity or Fear?

    I would like to pose the question to anyone and your thoughts on aging? Like taxes, aging is one thing none of us can get away from.

    I will be posting a video about a 94-year-old gentleman who has a positive idea about aging gracefully. Even though I am aging as we all are, I totally am in harmony of the way this gentleman shares his story.

    If anyone reading this has a difficult time with it, please post it here so it can be discussed and different points of view shared in a kind, caring, and loving way.

    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.


    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    who’s getting the better of the deal.

    Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise

    Re: Aging With Dignity or Fear?

    Good topic Luba.

    I personally have no issues with ageing as I do not feel as if I am (despite the body groaning a few times under pressure ).

    It is, however, distressing to see how disrespectful society generally is with those who are in the last quarter of their time. I wish they could see that what they do now will be reflected onto them when their time comes.

    I think the same way, Rosie!

    I found this article about cultures that do celebrate aging and respect their elders.
