How about aging joyfully rather than gracefully?

I choose joy. Joyful aging for me includes love, family, healthy living, connection, celebration, adventures, and more! “Aging gracefully” entails walking a tightrope between a youth-obsessed society, which tells us that our value declines as we age, and a culture that says nothing is as uncool as desperation, the fervent desire for something we can’t have. Marketers stoke our desire for youthfulness as the ticket to remaining relevant, then shame us when our efforts to preserve that youth go awry.” How would you like your present day, next year, three, five, ten, twenty years and beyond- look and feel? I choose joy.
