Have we got Ageing Sussed?



Last week I spent one day with an ageing friend, who like me is full of vitality, vigour and still seeing the future as a time of growth and excitement.

Yes our physical bodies are certainly slowing down, but our joy is in the mind and spirit, which in turn makes those physical bodies glow. The lights are not gone out yet. We still keep those physical bodies active with walking or going to the gym and watching what we eat.

We have been close friends now for over forty years. We have both been “through the mill” so to speak, with bringing up three kids, divorce, second marraiges and many of the other things that happen in life. Thus building up a rich tapestry of experience and becoming Wise Elders.

We are both in a position where we want to make a difference to the world, supporting people through lifes challenges.

We reflected once again on an evening thirty years ago when we were as usual discussing how we were doing, wondering what the future would hold, over a glass of wine, (and a cigarette, because were both smokers in those days) and we both remember saying “I wonder if we will have it sussed when we are 60!

Well here we are, now hovering around 70. Guess what.

We have got a lot sussed, but we both take pleasure in the knowledge that we will actually never get it completely sussed. Simply because we are both so in love with living, that we will always find something else to be sussed.

Is this you? Or will you spend the rest of your life thinking that now that you have got it sussed, you will settle for where you are.

Nothing wrong with that of course, many people have lived such a busy hectic life that all they do want is a quiet life.

Just a word of warning though, in order to stay healthy, vital and full of joy, it is always good to be willing to make necessary changes, and have something else to be sussed!

You can still do this simply by making sure that you are aware and conscious in mind, body and spirit, while having the quiet life.

Watch this space. I still have ideas taking form. There are still things happening for me every single day, that bring challenges and inspiration.

Would you like to be so in love with life?

I for one, just want to be a means of support for people who want to stay on the road to getting it sussed.

So, have you got it sussed? I haven’t, and don’t want to yet.
