Because I believe in the value of communication and I have a great dislike for Assuming. Aging Gracefully is here for you to share real experiences with others. So many of us go through life with valuable experiences we could have shared with others to learn from genuine information. To hear from someone without intent to sell us something. If nothing else to know someone else has had the same thing happen. Medical experiences go unknown too often, please consider sharing your personal knowledge on Sandpoint Id. community Blog, Shopsandpoint.com, aging gracefully with others. Like I find having another person go with you to the Doctors or tests, to be another set of ears, listening is valuable, and remembering is important. You remember as a child the buddy system, I do. Commenting on topics in positive ways that you have found to age gracefully. There just is not enough personal information available, simple things like embracing our age and learning all we can to care for ourselves. Simple things like “focus movement” to prevent injuries or pain like my Chiropractor Blaze Welch encouraged me to do. If you feel you are an elder with experiences to share that may help others, I encourage you to do so.

Just the other day when I said how about being an example of aging gracefully their reply was “I do not think that is possible” Be careful the thoughts -words you choose-your choice.

I believe I am understanding as I age the desire to live in the now, meditate, and do anything else I can do to avoid stress. As I am finding with stress comes memory loss, breath deep into your gratitude.
‘Women have another option.
They can aspire to be wise, not merely nice;
to be competent, not merely helpful;
to be strong, not merely graceful;
to be ambitious for themselves,
not merely for themselves in relation to men and children.
They can let themselves age naturally and without embarrassment,
actively protesting and disobeying the conventions
that stem from this society’s double standard about aging.
Instead of being girls,
girls as long as possible,
who then age humiliatingly into middle-aged women,
they can become women much earlier –
and remain active adults,
enjoying the long, erotic career of which women are capable, far longer.
Women should allow their faces to show the lives they have lived.
Women should tell the truth.’
Susan Sontag, ‘The Double Standard of Aging’ (1972)
