“Awesome aging is living fully this minute with the delight of a child and the wisdom of an adult who knows that life offers no guarantees.” ~ Pauline Duncan-Thrasher
Excerpt from Swimmin’ Women: Ride the Waves of Change and Dive Into Life:
‘Awesome aging’ is a positive, spirited response to life that illuminates everyone you meet.
Awesomely aging folks choose to respond to life’s ups and downs with flexibility and resilience. If the heights become too scary, they know when to pause and restore equilibrium.
“A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.”
~ Chinese proverb
Your song begins as an independent spirit. You may still remember your rebellious nature as a teenager. Maybe you argued just for the sake of arguing. Maybe you kept your responses churning inside. Maybe you couldn’t wait til you were old enough to make up your own mind. As an adult, you discover that there is a price for independent thinking but also a joy.
