The Truth Is:
- POSTED ON: Jul 23, 2016


The Truth is:

The truth is that health is not an obligation, barometer of worthiness, entirely within our control, or guaranteed under any circumstance.

The truth is that we should all have the opportunity, but never any obligation, to participate …or not… in any diet and/or fitness activity,  whenever we choose to do so.

The truth is that we don't have to make our self-confidence,  our self-esteem, or our self-worth  contingent on our health, what we choose to eat, our participation in fitness, or anything else.

The truth is that other people can talk and talk, but we don't have to pay attention or care what they say.

The truth is that I am the only person who can decide how I feel about myself and my body.

The truth is that  we are worthy, no matter what.

Growing Old Gracefully
- POSTED ON: Jun 28, 2016


 

We start out young. 
If we stay alive long enough, we get old. 
Then we die.
This is the inescapable truth about Life.


When I think of growing old gracefully, the image of Aunt Bee of Mayberry comes to mind.  Aunt Bee’s common and comfortable look was similar to most of the older ladies in my 1950’s childhood world.  And I don't know anyone who doesn't love the warm and caring character portrayed as Aunt Bee.



During past times, it seemed to be common knowledge that it was appropriate for young people to look fresh and trim, and for older people to be comfortable in their own plump skin, wrinkles and all.

But, Nowadays….

Growing Old Gracefully?
         by Patricia Brozinsky

What does it mean to "grow old gracefully?"  I recently saw a television commercial which gave me the idea for this article.

In the commercial a dermatologist and his wife, a psychotherapist, emphasize that they want to "grow old gracefully" thus explaining the reason they each swallow 25 supplements per day.

I don't believe swallowing pills will make us graceful, which is defined as “lithe, agile, dainty, pretty, delicate, handsome and trim”. Thus, their meaning of "growing old gracefully" eluded me.

Unless we die young most of us will eventually look old. And, people who look old …. gray haired and wrinkled, gnarled arthritic fingers and toes, bent over from osteoporosis, and because of age-related-slow-metabolism or water retention have gained weight …. are regrettably not considered among the in-group who are "growing old gracefully." These poor folks are rarely portrayed in the commercials.

So, does "growing old gracefully" really mean to "look good," and "to be aesthetically pleasing to the eye”?

Let's never forget the precious message of the fox from, Antoine de Saint-Exupery's children's book, The Little Prince. The fox said, "What is essential is invisible to the eye."

Being lithe, agile, dainty, pretty, delicate, handsome and trim are qualities usually no longer available to the elderly among us. Let's face it even some younger...
