Forget gracefully–age vividly! What do I mean by aging vividly? Age with style. Age with panache. Age with direction, focus and drive. Today, write numbers down the side of a sheet of paper starting at the top with your current age and working your way down to end at “1.” At the top, write “The N best things about turning N,” where N is your current age or a recent milestone. Fill out the list with things that amuse you, enlighten you, make you feel grateful, or anything else that seems appropriate.
For a fun example (and a viewing of the blog post that inspired this exercise), check out The 45 Best Things about Turning 45.
