Endless Love As We Age

About two years ago, I took a course on Psychology and Aging. It was a Developmental Psychology course that I dreaded. I thought that it would be depressing and all about death and dying. I was so wrong. It was about healthy living, extending one's life, and getting better coping skills.

The study of Aging now encompasses the entire Life Course.  We can make healthy decisions, throughout our lives, that can make our lives better as we age. The key factors to healthy aging are a good support network, being active, and being an optimist.

Fabulously Retro

 This photo recalls a time when clean lines and crisp styling were in. It is retro and fabulous. Of course things were not so simple then. There were a multitude of problems that the average person faced. Women and minorities had many rights that were not yet granted, but we are focused of fashion. Retro is still in and I love it.
