Age is All About Perspective

My 86-year old client complained that he was out of breath. While I offered him encouragement he lamented that “If only I could perpetually be 72 [years old]. I was stunned. Seventy-two?, I said incredulously, why not 55 or 40? Why 72? He went on to explain that 72 was a fabulous year for him. In fact, the entire decade of his 70’s were fantastic.

Age is simply a number. It is our beliefs and expectations about age that color our experience. Not age itself.

Life is supposed to be fun! No matter what your age, it is always NOW. Don’t wait to live your best life.
