I attended a charitable event Thurs. (Dec 05) in Monmouth Co. NJ.
One of the attendees -Guest speaker, supermodel Carmen who at 83 years old, looks 20 years younger!
She & I were sharing a variety of topics, one of which- to Age Gracefully-
Allow me to share with you her philosophy-
”Time is not a thief that robs you of your attributes. It is a gift enabling you to enhance them”.
So in this spirit Let’s all embrace aging. It is not an illness, it is not something to be ashamed of. Age is just a number, and the sooner we all realize that we don’t have to hide who we are, the sooner we will really live. The truth is that as we mature, we are invited to realize the preciousness of life, and if we manage it well, we learn to make peace instead of wage war. We learn to accept each day with gratitude and to hold ourselves, and the process, in a positive light.
