Aging Wisdom – Lessons 31-40


by Richard P. Johnson

Aging teaches me…

31. That peace is internal not external
32. That I must always have dreams
33. That I function best when I have a personal cause, passion, goal, or purpose that is bigger than me
34. To have fun: activities that rejuvenate my body, or stimulate my mind, or enrich my soul.
35. To welcome change into my life
36. To see beauty, seek delight, and be in awe
37. To give my burdens to God
38. To cultivate a “confidant” relationship.
39. That the maturation process is a time of emotional and spiritual vitality and vibrancy
40. That aging is a time to “give-back”
