Manifesto

manifesto

 

As birthdays roll by, year after year, changes occur  to your mind and body. Some items are defined by genetics and lifestyle. Others are not.

I am not going to accept the changes of aging gracefully and passively.  There is evidence that attitudes toward aging have an actual measurable physical effect on how we age. I can’t stop my aging. But I can maintain my positive attitude about aging.

I can train and exercise. I can eat smart. I can and will listen to my body and make good decisions.  I can choose to be positive about changes that happen to my body.  

I’ve already accepted the number of my age. It’s just that, the current bookmark in my life.  
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

                                         – Dylan Thomas
