I was ready to move forward from my 6th decade, and looked back on my life. Something I realized was how fulfilling and creatively satisfying this decade has been. I felt that moving into my seventies wouldn’t be much different from what I had experienced in my previous years, but the complete opposite was true.
Like a strike at midnight on New years eve, Father Time showed up for the first time in my life, dictating what was to be expected. The clocks are ticking and life keeps moving regardless of health issues, the realization of aging, elder support and more- all things I had never anticipated. Living in denial was my way of dealing with all of these issues. I chose to keep a good attitude and stay positive instead of focusing on the things I can not control.
