“Youth is the gift of nature, but age is a work of art.” – Stanislaw Jerzy Lec
Age is a gift. It is a work of art. And it can only be achieved day by day and over a long period of time. No one can take your age from you and you cannot speed it along either. Age is a gift, if you choose to accept it as that. For some, age is seen as a necessary evil that they wish to hide or grumble about.
Your perspective on your age is important for your heart. A grateful and healthy heart focuses on the benefits that age brings to the heart. A grumbling heart focuses on everything negative associated with aging.
There are many benefits of growing older that only you can enjoy because of your gift of your years.
Grandchildren - You get to experience the joys of children without the sleepless nights and diaper changing.
Wisdom - Nothing can replace the wisdom you’ve gained from your life experiences.
A Joyful Outlook - Some studies indicate that seniors are some of the happiest people in the United States. You can read more about it in “Research: Older adults are happiest Americans”.
Empathy - It has been found that older Americans have superior empathetic and social abilities.
Senior Discounts - You’ve earned them! Enjoy them!
Dr. Corrielus would like to remind you to embrace your age and to be grateful for the gifts that come along with it.
