Getting Older & #Staying Relevant #spiritualadvice #relationshipadvice #newthought #ageism

Besides our waning health, loosening skin, loss of interest in current music, and enjoying sitting and doing nothing more than ever, can you say that your life as someone who is growing older is still relevant?

Just a mere 20 years ago, the average male would live 10-15 years after retirement and a woman would live about 5 years longer than that. Now these figures have almost doubled. We are either taking better care of ourselves or modern medicine is interceding and taking better care of us. Nonetheless, we must look at the second stage of our lives as an Encore Career rather than retirement, otherwise we won’t stay relevant in a world that insists we have a voice and a purpose to stay among the living.

What is older anyway? I feel younger than ever in my mind and heart, even though I’m 55. I look at myself in the mirror and see that the only difference in myself is the gray hair. That wouldn’t even be there if my acting agents didn’t think I was a silver fox and wanted me to get older roles. Interestingly though, as a result of living with my salt and pepper hair has made me embrace getting older in a new way. I like it more than I expected. I feel more appreciated and honored in a world that expects professionals to have more experience.

Just feeling young doesn’t mean that our lives are relevant. We look at the millennials with all this energy and the desire to fight for causes. I, on the other hand, would rather give money than go out and fight. I think my fighting-for-causes days are over. However, I can stay relevant in different ways.

One very important way to stay relevant is to be able to connect with our youth in a way that steers them in the right direction without annoying them. One of the most important parts of my life is being a role model for the young people around me. I love them and try hard to allow them in my life more than ever. This way, I know that what I share in my blog and in my books from my years of hard knocks has been worth it. The youth get it in a way and can pass it on in a way that I never did when I was younger.

What about the children? This is a question I hope we ask ourselves as we get older. How is our life impacting them? How can we make our truth available for those who want to learn?

Can you start a class? Can you reach out to your grandkids? Can you mentor a young person? I’m sure you can think of other wonderful ways to keep your important life lessons alive!

A Pot Full of Old—Aging Gracefully

“A Pot of Old” can be your “Pot of Gold,” if you let it.

I never much thought about getting old until I turned fifty. Then, suddenly, I entered a race against time to get all of the things done on my bucket list. After one big surprise birthday, I momentarily circumvented all of my fear about being rejected, because no time exists for such nonsense. So, now, as one who qualifies for AARP, I can actually rent a car for less while I’m taking my arthritis and cholesterol meds. Yeah for me!

The truth is, I actually really enjoy being an older man. The benefits of being over fifty far outweigh the problems. One amazing factor about being older is the opportunity to assess life through the lens of time. I can deliberate and make great decisions based on a large menu of items that I have already tasted, digested, and felt the benefits of. This is similar to going to a restaurant that is one you frequent, knowing that you are about to get a delicious meal with no questions asked. This is far better, sometimes, than constantly trying new restaurants with the hope that you’ll find something on the menu you enjoy.

This, I call, avoiding a sophomore attitude that is endemic in the youth. When you’re young, you want to try everything, which is a part of life. This sophomoric attitude annoys me about older men who haven’t learned this important lesson: This moment is divinely inspired. Don’t make light of the moment. Instead, live it fully, experiencing the now.

The difference is that, as an older adult, we can discern what was good and what wasn’t good about our experience—after we gave it a chance. I’m not saying I haven’t dismissed many relationships and opportunities because they simply weren’t resonating with me. No, not saying that at all. In fact, one of the great options of age is that I can make those decisions safely, knowing myself better than anyone. I absolutely can see within minutes if someone is a nurturer, a taker, a troublemaker, or a lover. It’s as if age has given me a divine sifter, like those change machines at the grocery store converting pennies and dimes to dollar bills.

Another great benefit of being older is that I see that it rains and thunders on all of us. The human experience is not purposefully singling out you or me and creating a mess for us to clean up. No, life just brings “stuff” because this is earth and we are human. In fact, I’m even getting used to being wrong. (Yes, I wrote it publicly and often say it aloud!) Apologies are becoming second nature. I get that I’m here to experience. Some of my experiences are joyful and loving. Having a bad experience and making wrong choices doesn’t make me a bad person.

Some lessons are more difficult to endure, especially if I resist them. I’m learning to plunge in and feel all of life as it passes me, taking from my experiences the lessons I’ve learned to create better times in the future.
