Welcome to Tea, Toast and Trivia.
Thank you for listening in.
I am joined by my mother Frances for a conversation about the aging process.
I have never really understood the phrase: you are as young as you feel. Birthdays come and go, and I feel the same. It’s only when I look back at photos that show a young woman of 18 ready to take on the world that I realize the passage of time. She recognized the possibilities, while I have lived the possibilities, the marvelous adventures that have come through the years. And yet, we are the same for we live in the moment, with expectation and anticipation.
So put the kettle on and let’s talk about aging. Better yet, the art of aging.
I am your host Rebecca Budd and I’m looking forward to sharing this moment with you.
Thank you for joining Frances and me on Tea Toast & Trivia. Embracing and celebrating aging is a choice and acceptance of who we are in the moment.
My dear blogger friend, Liz from Leaping Life suggested a fabulous book written by her friend Maggy Pigott, “How to Age Joyfully: Eight Steps to a Happier, Fuller Life.” In the coming weeks, Liz and I will be exploring how we can podcast from a distance – from Edinburgh to Vancouver. Stay tuned for a podcast with Liz on this insightful book.
One last thought comes from Madeleine L’Engle: “The great thing about getting older is that you don’t lose all the other ages you’ve been.”
So, until next time dear friends, safe travels wherever your adventures take you.
