Character actress Ruth Gordon, best remembered for her roles in Rosemary’s Baby and Harold and Maude, was a frequent guest on late-night TV talk shows in the 1970’s.
One evening, while discussing her career and current projects, the animated, enthusiastic Miss Gordon turned to host Dick Cavett and proclaimed, “I made up my mind years ago—I will grow older, but I will never grow old.” She stayed true to this pledge. Youthful spirit and a love of life accompanied her to the finish line.
Growing older affords you the opportunity to commune with your life experience. Now you can put it into better perspective, bringing intensity and meaning to what you were too preoccupied to notice at the time you lived through it.
Your knowledge and past, combined with introspection, enable you to make wiser choices, to seek rewarding ways to utilize your unique strengths in service to others.
Age is no roadblock to productive pursuits. On the contrary, the accumulation of years opens countless new roads of possibility to you. Your life experience is a powerful guidance counselor. Consult with it regularly.
