Unlocking the Power of Your Perfect Age: Embrace the Potential

Maybe for a while now you have been longing for a time when your face had fewer lines and your hair had no dye, but aging has a beauty you can’t see with the naked eye. Not only do you become wiser than your 20-year-old self, but the brain doesn’t even fully mature until you reach the age of around 30! And in many respects, you’ll be much happier.

It may be human nature to always be something other than who we are. When we were small, we wanted to be grown up, because grownups get to drive and do whatever they want. In our teens, we wanted to be older so we could go out with our friends and get into nightclubs, and have some of our own money.

Once we hit 40, we wanted to go back to our youth and forward to retirement. That’s being pulled in both directions.
And then, we hit retirement, and feel that it isn’t cracked up to what it’s supposed to be either. It seems we are never happy with who or where we are. And, seems to get even more complicated as we grow older, like forgetting where we put the car keys.

It seems that on average, people are awful at embracing their age. This might be because of the incessant advertising we are all exposed to, coupled with the social pressures which surround us. Investment companies shout out, “Plan for the best years of your life”. The cosmetic industry tells us that our perfect age is “ten years younger.”

All of these factors will take years off of our lives. If we are 60, we are told we were better at 50, and at 50, we were better at 40, and so on.

Society is also to blame. Just think, when we were kids we were told things like “You’re too young to understand, too young to vote, too young to do many things. Then we are all of a sudden “over the hill” “too old to work, “too old to wear skinny jeans”, and “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks!”

Each year we walk the face of this beautiful planet. It’s precious and special, for we are only here once, and it is for a very brief moment. We all should be comfortable with growing older.

The fact of the matter is, our internal age is what matters. Our bodies may change as we age, but who we are on the inside as a person changes very little. The important things, like our dreams, personality, desires, character, and ambitions, stay constant over time.

Part of the opportunity and the challenge of aging is to learn how to let go of what’s on the outside and embrace what’s on the inside. Rather than looking to others for advice on how we should dress, act and behave at 50, 60, and 70, we should simply embrace our inner self and moral compass and live our lives in our own way.

Power of Your Perfect Age

You Are the Perfect Age

You are invited today to take a look in the mirror and tell yourself you are perfect exactly as you are. Each time the TV tells you how to look and feel younger, remind yourself, “I am the perfect age, and I am perfect just the way I age”

We live in a highly competitive society, so it’s only natural to compare ourselves to others. However, it can be very dangerous. If you think about it…it’s pointless to compare yourself to another human being on this planet because there is only one you. It’s time to put the focus on you and your journey. Shifting that energy alone will help you to feel free.
People in general are fearful of aging, but, why fight it? It is one battle you just can’t win, and growing older brings some pretty amazing things.

Trusted Partners


Much of our youth is spent on looking for a love interest. Starting a family, having young children, and watching them grow, are some of the most magical parts of life. From births to launching your children off to college, and watching the cycle repeat itself with your grandchildren is an experience worth growing older for.

Growing Older Has Its Perks

We just need to do a better job of recognizing and appreciating them.
To provide some inspiration, we have put together a list of truths to help you reframe your concept that growing old leads to nothing but decrepitness:

#1. Fewer Ailments

Let’s not pretend that senior life is free of ouchies, but many don’t realize that seniors experience less of those annoying illnesses life has to offer. For example, seniors have been fighting off those nasty germs over the many years they’ve been around, so their immune system provides better protection against even the common cold. Seniors experience fewer allergy attacks because as we age our bodies produce less of the antibodies that cause them. And seniors also experience fewer migraines – believe it or not.

#2. Better at Handling their Emotions

“Those youngsters get so emotional!” Research studies have shown that seniors tend to have more empathy and better social skills than their younger counterparts.

The University of Michigan conducted a study indicating people in their 60s answered more effectively and empathetically to “Dear Abby” letters. This says that older people have the experience to accept things which in turn lowers their stress and the stress level of those around them.

#3. Clearer Priorities

As your list of life experiences grows, the more you know your likes and dislikes, what are your necessities in life, and what you don’t need in life. As time goes on, we realize how short it is, so we tend not to waste our time with things, people, and activities that are not worthwhile.

#4. Care Less About What Other People Think

We spend a ridiculous amount of time in our lives worrying about what others think. In our younger days, and not so younger days, we suffered peer pressure. Then we were launched out into the great big world and had to worry about what our lovers, bosses, neighbors, and so on, think.

But at some point in time, we started caring less about what others thought. We survived the judgment from ourselves and others and realized what other people thought wasn’t worth our time. We stopped caring about “keeping up with the Joneses” and just started doing what we wanted to do and what makes us happy. Wonderful!!

#5. Fewer Obligations

As we get older it’s easier to not do what we don’t want to do! There isn’t that great degree of peer pressure to get to an event we don’t want to go to, we don’t have to go to that party if we don’t want to. People don’t expect you to go out every weekend. So, we can just pick and choose what we want to do and how we spend our time.

#6. Senior Discounts

This may sound trivial, but like other benefits, senior discounts can save us a lot of money. Don’t think twice about pulling the old preferential treatment card next time you’re out for supper or a movie. You might as well take advantage of what you have earned.

#7. Grandchildren

Not all of us have grandchildren, but those that do, often put grandchildren at the top of the list when it comes to enjoyable moments in the golden years. The relationship between grandparents and their grandchildren is one of the most special relationships in a lifetime we can have. It’s beneficial to all. There is something so fun, nostalgic, and delicious about being able to bring treats over to the grandchildren and getting to go home before the sugar rush hits.


#8. Stories to Tell and Wisdom to Pass Down

It’s no secret that seniors are full of wisdom and stories. From touching moments to humorous memories, we always have some narrative to share. Even better, we have told the same stories over and over again, working on their delivery, to the point it becomes worthy of an Oscar! “Grandpa, how big was that fish?” And, because we have worked so hard on the details of each story, you can bet there are plenty of words of wisdom entangled in them.

#9. More time for Goals and Hobbies

We have juggled so many responsibilities over the course of our adulthood. We have had professional lives, romantic lives, lives raising our children, social lives, all types of lives, and each one of them came with a to-do-list.

Even still we have many things we are responsible for. Maybe we tend to the grandchildren, maybe we tend to our parents; maybe we have a role to fill in our community. But, there are still those dreams of what we have always wanted to do.

As we hit these precious years, that long to-do list has grown shorter. We now have the time to spend on anything we thought we neglected in the past. English novelist George Eliot once said, “It’s never too late to become what you might have been.”

There are so many ways that our age brings joy and love into our lives. The trick is to realize you are the perfect age to enjoy all that life has to offer.
