The media abounds with negative views about the impact of aging on physical, cognitive, and financial well-being. In fact, there are entire industries that have emerged to counteract the effects of aging, for example, nutritional supplements, hormone treatments, surgical improvements, lotions, potions, and the like. They all seem to underscore Bette Davis’ famous quote, “Old age is no place for sissies.”
What if there were another point of view? What if aging brought about, not decline but our greatest accomplishments? What if we looked at aging as does Dr. Christiane Northrup? She tells us that “Getting older is inevitable, but aging isn’t.”
Our book, Senior Wonders: People Who Achieved Their Dreams After Age 60 profiles 23 individuals and 2 groups who not only survived into old age but achieved their greatest successes.
“Triumphant aging” is a counter perspective to the pervasive negative beliefs about aging. Do you, your relatives, or friends have untapped potentials or abandoned dreams? If so, consider what George Elliot said, “It’s never too late to be what you might have been.”
