Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! The superpower of changing the past -- what a remarkable way of expressing this phenomenon, of the outcome of an expansion of wisdom and compassion.

Inspiring thoughts. Thanks.

Several good reminders. One of my favorites: "This ability to be hopeful despite the evidence is something I've cultivated and espoused over the years; and I believe that it is the key ingredient allowing me to feel younger than my years."

I have the same feeling, that life is only getting started for me now, at 57, and though it’s off to a slow and rocky start I’m looking forward to the big reveal. It’s important to hear others affirm this possibility with their experience, so, thank you!

I once read a line in a poem that I can’t find now --

“Smile though you know all the facts”

Appreciate Celeste is doing that for the rest of us :) I aspire to do the same

Well said “aging is a lifelong process of adjusting expectations to meet the moment, and it's best to do so with grace, dignity and a sense of humor.” Something to live by for sure. Thank you Celeste!
