Are you aging or sageing?
Empty Nesting. Retirement. Transition. What do these life transitions represent to you?
How about the topic of aging?
What is your approach to getting older? Denial? Realistic? Enthusiastic?
If you sense you fall into the category of either Denial or Realist, i want you to know that there is another option of that of the Enthusiast. The Enthusiast is a BOLD SOUL who embraces (or wants to but wants support) aging as a SAGE, even though you know that down the road there might be a bump or two in the road. You see life in your decade of your 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th and beyond decade of life as as a time of growth, mastery and continuous discovery. Enthusiasts have a more relaxed attitude toward money and material things because they value experiences over things. The rewards they seek are memories, emotions, and psychological and spiritual insights. They challenge ageism since they see virtue in this time of their lives.
Which sounds better to you? I just want you to know that it does not have to be decided for you!
You do have a choice to step unapologetically into Sage-ing with bold, Creative Spirit, Grace, Grit, Gratitude and Power sourced by your own determination and creativity. If you are 50 or beyond, I am ready to rejoice and Sage with you! I believe in continuing to thrive and grow versus age and decline. Doing it without surgery, chemical-laden hair dye, botox and fillers to try to look 20 again. But owning my experience and claiming the stage of living that brings reflection, wisdom and mastery toward becoming consciously vibrant, wise, and fully alive in the honest and authentic acceptance of ageing and the intimate choices that we can make which are congruent with thriving, resiliency, purpose and contented inner peace. Seeing and unapologetically embracing the beauty in aging wisely, determinedly and gracefully.
Sage-ing is about seeking, discovery and growing – satisfying that gnawing inner voice and transforming it to knowing and action. Aging can be alchemy when one allows the realization that to Know Thyself and contribute that knowing to our culture is indeed one of life’s highest purposes. That knowing brings the gratitude, grace and integrity that a life deserves. The creative journey into self is a strong aid to health and well-being for the individual and to our culture.
