“I’m 72. So What?”

“And now, paradoxically, I feel younger, more vibrant and in better shape physically and emotionally than I did at 60, or even at 50. So is that all a question of perspective?”

Personally, the last few New Year’s Eves I observed and then met a tiny woman well into her nineties who joyously danced the whole night away and my perspective of aging changed. My wish, hope, and prayer is that if I am still here, thirty years from now, I too will pass on the torch of inspiration she did gracefully dancing yet another New Year’s Eve away 😍

This article is shared by me because I am one who never believed in retirement, but rather believe in living life to the fullest by doing work I love and therefore not wanting to stop, which I am finally doing as a writer, plus founder and president of a global initiative transforming respect from a discretionary value to a global principle–that will take more than the rest of my life–and will be passed on to the next generations to fulfill when I am gone.
