Everyone faces new challenges and problems in their lives and the "mix" is a little different with each person. It appears to be a matter of how we look at ourselves, that we can come to an understanding that we are OK, that we'll survive it alone and that life will go on as it should.

 

You see, some aren't as fortunate as others, by having another person(s) there at home, to give s...

A Positive Mindset

As I sit in all the glorified comfort of my apartment, and contemplate how I ever managed to live this long, something just occurred to me. With experiencing a recent birthday, I’m priviledged to say that life, as a whole, has treated me well, especially in these later years.


I feel fairly comfortab...

Moving Onward to Greater Happiness

I sit here and wonder, what’s going to happen to me as I grow older? Will I still be able to use my eyes to read, my legs to walk, my ears to hear, my mind to think? It’s a somewhat scary proposition to ponder and I can then almost become paralyzed with fear for the future and what it holds.


Many people think there is nothing they can do about aging, although this isn’t true, unless you wa...

Could This Be the Season ?

Posted by jayemerill@live.com on June 12, 2020 at 6:30 AM Comments comments (0)

 

I feel it’s somewhat important to pass down some thoughts taken from reading,“The Seasons of Life” by Jim Rohn . His book is an analogy of the various seasons, depicting triumph and tragedy in life. He defines guidelines for bringing inspiration to the searchers of a better life.


We’re all going through something that is different now and sometimes a bit scary with th...

Black Lives Need to Breathe

It’s a time for reconciliation with who we are as American’s today, as it becomes imperative to re- think how policing is practiced in this country. Black men have been traditionally targeted and victimized as the issue of racial injustice is being cried by the throngs who hold George Floyd highly in regard as their symbol for “Black Lives Matter”.

Aging Gracefully

Posted by jayemerill@live.com on February 17, 2020 at 3:25 PM Comments comments (0)


 

When people talk about growing older gracefully, it's not uncommon to ask what that actually means or if it is actually does happen. How does one accomplish this? Who’s measuring, and how do they do it? There are so many messages about aging, that to age gracefully is to ask someone about the ‘elephant in the room”; it can be both scary and difficult to measure or carry out.

I'd like to reach out to a few folks who may be having a difficult time ... 

When a person is lonely, enough to become isolated from others, it can weigh heavily on a person and eventually become exhausting and sad!
