“No matter what happens on this road I will continue, continue to move forward.” I’d say under my breath a thousand times, to try to convince myself. While writing this book I swear I watched things in my world fall out of the sky and for some reason I couldn’t do a damn thing. That was the hardest part. Made me feel unspeakably selfish. Happened a lotta of times. Yet along this road to write this book friends stood nearby and encouraged me to keep on. By all means I am more than grateful for their patience and understanding. Grateful as well to happenstance. God. And the generous actions of so many. This book Design Your Age at its core is not about vanity. It’s about righting injustice and erasing the virtually deadly way in which many quietly accept some artificial fate of aging that can consume and finish you. Ultimately I hope this book helps YOU see aging in a new way. It’s time anyway and time to make it entertaining.
This isn’t my book. It’s YOUR book. I heard your frustrated voice time and time again. Telling me there’s more to getting older than classifying people with words like Senior. Elderly. Frail. Throw those words out the window. Create new language of “YES” empowerment. This is a new kind of generation that will not tolerate antiquated,useless descriptions and crap assumptions that do not serve humankind.
Let’s look at aging with new lens. Come on you can see it. I’ve got the evidence and the view once you really decide to see.
