Inhaltsangabe: I used to think that age sixty-five was the start of a slippery downward slope to the cemetery. But inside, I felt a surge of enormous energy, with the potential to approach aging as an uncharted adventure instead of a prison sentence. from the Introduction Unlike other authors, spiritual director, Linda Douty, discusses the challenges and surprises of ageing by talking about how you actually feel, not what you're supposed to feel. In a warm, down-to-earth voice, she offers a spiritually grounded method to adjust to the unexpected as you grow older. There is no one-size-fits-all here, but a variety of responses to the inner and outer transformations of ageing and new ways of looking at them. She looks at surprises, welcome and unwelcome, concerning self-image, the physical body, relationships and spiritual life. Questions for reflecting on who you are in this period of your life - or who you would like to be - will help you live each day more purposefully and joyfully.
