In this article from the Bonner County Daily Bee (Idaho), author Paul Graves was caught by surprise when his dental hygienist asked him if he had any tips about aging.
He then provides a list, in no particular order, of tips for aging for young people.
Here’s just a few of the tips:
• Remember that every day you live is part of your legacy for those who love you.
• Walk ankle-deep in the river denial if you must, but never swim there.
• Your body and mind are more fragile than you admit. Don’t take them for granted!
Graves says he is a champion of Geezerhood. In his view, a geezer is someone with a hopeful, young attitude about life who lives in a disguise of gray hair and wrinkles.
I don’t know how young a person can be to start geezer-training. But I do know for myself, and many others I know, that being a geezer-in-training doesn’t stop.
