All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.-Walt Disney
Dear readers, I have some thing personal to share with you.
Today, I’ve gone through a few emotions starting with anger, sadness, to disappointment. Its come me my attention that a person who have walked me through some tough situations over the past two years, has a bias against their black people. This bias is a result of having had an education paid for by their parents, living in an upscale community with the white elitist, paid for by their parents, and solely socializing with white people, because they feel that people of color, are beneath them. I wasn’t prepared for this news. I conclude that I was the token black friend to a person who I once respected and admired. It’s not easy for me to trust people. I’m at a loss for word.-Thank you for listening.
Psst…have you hear that there is a secret to aging? In the latest issue of AARP magazine there is an article that suggest “31 Proven Age Erasing Secrets,” yeah, tips on how to erase, set back, stop or slow down the aging process. But, there is a down side, what doesn’t stop, goes backwards or slows down is the Numbers.
These days graying or loss of hair, diminished hearing, fading vision, less pep, and memory loss isn’t trendy. The general point of view about aging means people who have lost their usefulness. In other words, a person of advanced age no longer fits into a society that workshops youth, beauty, and a flawless body.
I’m 52, yeah, I said my age out loud. I believe that daily moderate exercise, healthy eating, sleeping well, staying connected to family and friends; while engaging in mentally stimulating activities, can help elderly people have a better quality of life during the aging process.
This is my story. What say you?
