Those wishing to help shape this demographic trend in a…

Several weeks ago, I had lunch with a friend I hadn’t seen in years. He had just turned eighty years old. His mind was as sharp as ever—witty, inquisitive, and focused. He was also a great listener. When he did speak, wisdom dripped from his lips like honey.

ANTI AGING: You’re Doing It Right
(I made this. Like my creativity?)
This year I grew more than i ever have in my life. I came out and discovered a whole new life I never thought was possible. I saw that being gay wasn’t a curse but a just cause. A lifestyle, yes, but a lifestyle in the pursuit of loving yourself and sharing bonds with those of the same…
I was asked to post tat pics, and here they are (each a separate post).
The green design was done first, when I was 18 or so, and the fire was put on three years later. It is old and faded. Sometimes, I think I should get it retouched, but then I think, it’s nice to show/embrace the fading that comes with aging.
It is only natural for us as human beings to look for ways to hold onto our youth. Many view aging as a negative thing. It represents a deterioration of the human body that leaves behind mocking traces of one’s youth. But, the body only deteriorates as much as the spirit allows it to. The main concern that most have with aging is the physical wear of what has come to be defined as beauty. Youthful looks are the ideal while showing one’s true age is discouraged and a grey hair becomes a cause for concern. But what many do not see is that people do not cease to be beautiful simply because they age. Beauty is a lifelong quality that is not reserved for a certain age group. We may not all be models with certain features, that is true, but many of today’s beauty concerns revolve around weight, size, etcetera. We do not all share those concerns but we all do experience one thing together: we all age. We can control our weights, we can control our muscle builds, but we cannot hold back the hands of time. And many of us who worry about our bodies today will one day see a grey hair and another worry will be added to an already long list of self-image related concerns unless the aging process is accepted. In the end we are only as young, or as old, as we feel and we should live our lives accordingly. Live your life as if you are twenty one, and you’ll be twenty one forever. I do not know why I felt the need to type this. I suppose it is because there has been someone on my mind lately. I know an older woman who has been feeling depressed lately. She’s single, in her mid to late fifties, and she feels that she is no longer attractive due to her age despite the fact that I think she is gorgeous. She sees the way that age has changed her appearance but she is unable to see how stunning and attractive she is. I just feel a little sad because she cannot see that. Seeing her depressed makes me feel gloomy.
