Merry Christmas and Happy Other Holidays, whatever you celebrate. Welcome back to Life Intelligence. It’s definitely life-intelligent to read Life Intelligence. LOL. If you just stumbled here, please subscribe. It will be a present for me. I like presents. Expect weekly installments.
At 72, I have, like the people in the video, been through career, a decent marriage-which would have rolled along nicely, had Penny lived and parenthood. I have, like the last man in the video, conducted myself as a good person-for the most part. I had a rough decade in my 20s, more fulfilling 30s and 40s, the struggles of caretaking and personal demon-casting in my 50s and re-establishing myself in my 60s. I don't feel outcast or ignored by either my contemporaries or by younger people, because I love and value them so much-and they feel it. I have my health, physical and mental; I have my joints and vital organs. It's a good life.
I would say "me," If I make a certain event as a crisis and am not prepared, it will be, but if I see it as a time to make some changes then it will be. When my children were in their mid-teens, I knew life would be very different as they moved out and went to college, so I decided on what could come next - it was schooling and becoming a counselor.
