How often I’ve lamented about changes being thrust at me without my consent! In “Aging Is A Journey of Changes,” I learned these really are the most difficult of all life’s changes. Right now, I have to stop trying to block out all changes because of those negative experiences. Life is a matter of balancing the changes, by being willing to handle my own truths.

At last, I know I don’t have to accept those nasty pet names given to those of us who have gray hair. I agree with the author—use my name or jump into the conversation but don’t call me “young lady” or “madam” or any of those other so-called cute names. By avoiding telling the speaker that he or she has discriminated against me, I gave them permission to keep talking that way. By writing out my attitude and feelings, I learned it takes confidence to be the real me!

Writing always seemed like such an exhausting job. I sure didn’t need another job after working, taking care of the kids and husband, shopping and all the other zillion things I did. Now that I’m a senior sage, without all those responsibilities, I’m struggling with being open to new ideas which are just for me. After reading about half of the book “Aging Is A Journey of Changes,” I finally heard the message about writing is healing. It’s true! I am following Marcia’s suggestions to strive to be the best that I can be.
