For the second quarter of the year we’re focusing on getting older. April’s Vlogs are all about embracing and celebrating milestones as we age. We’re moving ahead another decade this week. So, what can gay life after 60 look like?
Here’s what I covered in the Vlog:
There’s no denying the as we enter our 60’s we have a lot of life behind us.
As we reflect on what has hopefully been a life well lived we can see how we’ve grown and gained perspective.
For many of us we start to feel like elders in our fifties, but now it becomes and important part of who we are.
When we talk about elders we think of wisdom. What we’r really taking about is a perspective that can only come with experience.
If you’re lucky enough to have some younger, perhaps much younger people in your life, allow yourself to become a source of advice.
It’s one of the best parts of getting older.
Another thing we have to face as we enter our sixties is that looming retirement age.
It’s 65 in Canada.
Reticent can mean a lot of things. Define what it means for you. If you love what you do, there’s no reason not to keep on going.
Or you may decide its time to do something completely different.
Remember that your life is far from over. So, hopefully with more options, keep living it on your own terms.
Particularly in our generation, survival itself is a cause for celebration. So shout it from the rooftops and party like it’s 1999. Fifty is only a big deal if you let it be.
