My Mission for your Transitions in Aging
A Global Community for Your Extraordinary Elderhood
Congratulations! You have lived well for many years! You have learned so much and accomplished great things whether small or large. You are already extraordinary! Keep it up through these transitions of aging!
Might you be educated with one or several degrees in higher education? Articulate and self-aware? Goal oriented and maybe driven to achieve those goals? At least you are clear that knowing where you are going is important for effective use of time, energy, and resources. Do you desire to make a contribution, still to make a difference? Do you have financial resources from years of working, retirement funds and savings and insurances?
You may wonder what to expect in this stage of life. Changes in this stage of life can become challenging. They can be challenging because feelings arise with them. We can feel grief and sorrow at losses that occur. We can look back over our life story and feel regret and remorse for choices we made. We can look forward to transitions we have never before taken on and feel scared. We can as well feel joy at the wonder and freedom we discover as elders. All of these feelings arise.
You know that life involves change, the only constant. The changes in this stage may seem daunting. Are you fearful of diseases and physical decline, denying you will get sick but knowing it could happen, wondering how best to prepare for the worst-case scenario, wondering what resources may be needed and available? Are you wanting to share life in love and peace, lower your levels of anxiety? Do you find yourself isolated. Some like that, others need interaction with like-minded elders. If diseased, do you want to be real about death and dying? Who listens to your fears and hopes? Family members may not. A Personal Coach and a Global Community of Elders will listen and transform from victimhood to an Extraordinary Elderhood.
Coaching is not formal therapy though referrals may be made to other resource people in accordance with a participant's goals.
The book "5 Regrets Of The Dying" and the author is Bronnie Ware. In the book Bronnie lists the 5 common regrets as...(let's change these for you!)
