Über diesen Titel
Once we reach middle age, the harder questions about how it actually feels to grow older -- and closer to the end of life -- begin to surface. Difficult as these questions may be, Sallirae Henderson assures us that our desire to find the answers is both a mark of maturity and an opportunity for growth.
"A Life Complete" envisions midlife as a rich, reflective period that gives us the chance to begin a process of discovery. With Henderson's sensitive and knowing advice, we learn how to make emotional and spiritual choices that can help us confront the past and welcome what the future holds. "A Life Complete" offers six simple skills that guide us through this period of change and inspire feelings of satisfaction and joy:
Learning to grieve
Recognizing that you always make a difference
Maintaining a sense of personal evolution
Finding a larger context for your life
Accepting the help of others
Remarkably wise and thoughtful, "A Life Complete" is an inspiring reflection on what may be the most meaningful period of our adult lives.Rezension:
If we are to live to our final days with a sense of completion and peace, rather than regret and guilt, we must prepare for old age during our middle age, according to author Sallirae Henderson. As an ordained minister and psychological counselor, Henderson spent the last two decades working with dying people. Over time she noticed that some elders relied upon internal strength and contentment in order to cope with their final hours. Some, however, dwelled in "unresolved despair, rage, and general misery." What made the difference?
"It became alarmingly clear to me that what I choose now in middle age will have a direct bearing on the emotional and spiritual quality of my last years," Henderson writes, "...and whether I will die a complete human being or an unfinished one." With that thought in mind, Henderson decided to offer a guidebook for readers in their 40s and 50s, helping them prepare for old age. In the section on "Emotional Preparation," Henderson covers concepts such as "Befriending Yourself," "Learning to Grieve," and coping with Alzheimer's Disease. In "Spiritual Preparation," the author writes about "Evolving Toward True North" and "Finding a Larger Context for Your Life." Her numerous real-life anecdotes and clear writing style make this a highly persuasive and useful companion. Readers can expect an enormous long-term payoff. In fact, this book probably ensures more peace and security than any retirement account or retirement-home waiting list ever could. --Gail Hudson
