Enjoying Freedom, Joy and Purpose in Life’s Third Act
December 4 – 6, 2020
My days are too precious to waste on bitching
and blame. Laughter comes sooner and easier
now, for it would be a shame to miss the delights
winter offers to those nearing (70, 80 or) 90.
~ Judith Viorst
Experiencing and living life should become limitless when we age.
Aging should be liberating. We no longer have the same
concerns as we had in our youth. After middle age,
the pursuit of happiness should be our goal.
~ Shirley MacLaine
I do think that when it comes to aging,
we’re held to a different standard than men.
Some guy said to me: “Don’t you think you’re too old to sing rock n’ roll?”
I said: “You’d better check with Mick Jagger.”
Every birthday, you decide whether to mark it
the end of your greatest days or
the beginning of your finest hour.
~ Oprah Winfrey
When there is nothing left to lose, we find the true self—the self
that is whole, the self that is enough, the self that no longer looks
to others for definition, or completion, or anything but
companionship on the journey.
~ Elizabeth Lesser
