|My Dad was active into his 90th year ... going to the gym and then coffee with his friends ... miss him!|
Our family has experienced the loss of parents in the past short while … both were of a very advanced age, 89 and 93 respectively, both had full lives. Most of the time we are aware that the end of our story here on earth will be to close our eyes for a final time ... one day. But rarely do we really consider what lies ahead of us until we see the people around us, who we love, moving into their final years. I think that there is a time in your life when the end of life needs to be looked at through your parents eyes ... it is unavoidable.
This experience has made a few things glaringly apparent to me:
1. We need to be vigilant right now so that we can be as healthy as possible up to and in our final years. No one can do it for you ... it is time to get back on track if you have derailed for some reason.
2. There are really easy ways to make sure that your quality of life is outstanding right now and in the future ... getting out the door, taking the stairs, moving our bodies rather than parking them somewhere in order just watch life instead of being a part of it all.
