Silver Disobedience is about clarifying faulty thinking regarding old attitudes about getting older. Our daily discussions dispel irrelevant ideas about aging that create unnecessary dread of a natural process with distinct advantages. 500,000+ comments in response to these blogs confirm that we’ve learned from our past choices: Each contributed to making us stronger. Our personal histories provide ample proof that we can handle all kind of situations…and people!
Now, we have the choice to leave a legacy in the minds of younger generations: We can do this by living our lives to the fullest in ways that assure others that life doesn’t go downhill sometime past our mid-twenties.
Many share this blog with their children. It warms my heart. I know of a 15 year old boy and plenty of others in their late teens, 20s and 30s who read Silver Disobedience daily! We all know it’s not always easy to get our kids to listen to us (we were the same way!!) But, more than words, living our lives to their fullest is the best example we can give another to help break down walls of insecurity and doubt.
Life does not wane, decrease, diminish or shrivel. While our bodies may experience challenges at anytime of life, our spirits can always soar. Every comment on these blogs reaffirms this. While yes, some are facing struggles and need to seek help from others, many are flourishing in unanticipated ways. Certainly I never thought I’d be modeling and leading a discussion about aging at 58! I’d have lost both of those bets if asked to place them.
Today is a good day to embrace that age does not mean we’re old or irrelevant. It really means we’ve experienced more precious years. What a blessing!
