Aging Gracefully

October 29th, 2009 Angela

Do you often hear the phrase, “You look good for your age?” Why can’t you just look good? Are we too sensitive? Does the person mean we are aging well? Is it a compliment? As baby boomers become older, many of us are becoming more aware and taking better care of ourselves. We are often responsible for the care of other family members — sometimes parents; often grandchildren or other family members. It is crucial that we put ourselves first. “We are not able to fill someone else’s cup if ours is empty.” So get out today and do something just for you. Go for a walk, purchase those fantastic boots you have been eyeing for the past few weeks, go to see a movie, call a friend. You deserve it. It’s all about aging gracefully.
