A Certain Age
November 18th, 2014 10:04 AM

With my birthday just days away, it is time to prepare growing older gracefully once again.  Each year is different and none will resemble another.  Some events that have unfolded in life have left deep emotional impacts and scars that have healed, but have not been forgotten.

But birthdays are new beginnings and moments of personal closure.  Every birthday, not just the ones marking a new decade, is a significant milestone.  Every age brings with it three hundred sixty-five real life lessons.  We become more certain of ourselves as we reach "Act Two" and more sure of what we want in life.  Many of the struggles that sapped so much energy and time in earlier years have now subsided.  There is now more effort to enjoy those  things we always wanted to see and do.

So, grow older gracefully.  Nature gives you the face you have when you are twenty.  Life shapes the face you have at forty; but it is up to you to earn the face you have at sixty or seventy.  The most dominant influence on a person's well-being is being happier growing older, for we turn not older with years, but newer every day!

Happy Birthday to you, and to me!
