Richly aging on New Year’s day includes adding another year to the years we have already experienced. Each more precious than the year before.
The New Year’s resolution tradition has gone on since the Babylonians 4000 years ago. Fortunately we haven’t experienced that many years!
As illustrated in this quotation, think of the first of a new year as an opportunity.
We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.” – Edith Lovejoy Pierce”

Richly Aged…and Loving Life’s Number One Resolution?
Our number one resolution is “see the glass half full.”
Keeping your perspective positive will keep you younger in thought, speech and deed. It will reduce your stress and keep you mentally and physically balanced. And, it’s a choice you get to make!
Besides that, it will make you much more desirable to be around. The ‘cranky older person’ is over-rated and over-used. That ship has sailed.
Choose happiness and you will become a magnet for happiness in return. Would you want to be around someone who was grumpy a large percentage of their day? Someone who finds fault with everything from food, to the temperature, to pretty much anything they come in contact with? Who would?
Our 2017 Good News
Our posting schedule for 2017 includes four posts a week. We will start posting our book and the anonymous results of several focus groups we have scheduled with other retirement-age adults.
Our goal is to relay any concerns involving our age group and provide possible solutions!
We look forward to you sharing your concerns and experiences in the coming months.
Let go of what was and embrace what’s to be.” – Lailah Gifty Akita”
