Honestly, I was doing just fine until menopause came along and wrecked my world!! Then came hypothyroidism and destroyed my high school figure! Well, maybe. After thinking about it, “what does aging gracefully mean to you?”
I don’t complain about getting old…I just don’t like going through this awful stage in my life where my body wants to do weird things and I have no control over it….otherwise, I’m fine…really I am. Well, maybe.
What does Aging Gracefully mean to You?
I’ve endured quite a lot in the past 6 years, but I am a survivor and will not let something like “aging” get me down. How can I, I’ve got my grandson raise. If anything, a young kid will sure keep your aging at a stand still, right? I guess, I really hadn’t thought about aging until this question came up. I honestly had to think about it and not even sure I answered the question right.
Taking care of yourself and not hiding the fact that you are getting older is far better than sweeping it under a rug and pretending it’s not happening. Growing old is inevitable so why not embrace it and age gracefully! That’s my motto!
