This just in: Regrets, fear, and aging

Go through the door of your fears

Go through the door of your fears

“You only age when your regrets outnumber your fears.” ~John Barrymore

When we talk about aging in our society, and how to fend off its physical effects, the discussion often turns to diet, exercise, healthcare, and beauty products. I’ve found the best way to lessen the impacts of aging has nothing to do with anything physical. It’s about choices. Are we making the decisions that make us happy and help us feel fulfilled? Are we having fun, enjoying our time, and doing what we love? Our choices have just as much impact on our physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing as anything else. So let’s make the choice to leap through fear and go after the lives we really want.

One thought on “This just in: Regrets, fear, and aging

  1. Barrymore is on the money! I guess I have aged. Does fear keep us young? Thank you for the probing questions we need to ask ourselves.
