When my prototypical Continent Senate retirement fund wage arrived, I commented to my girl thatability it wasn't all thatability bad woman 'middle-aged'. She laughed and said, 'Dad, you're not transitional old ... nonentity lives 'til 118!'

She was word-perfect. We laughed and I remembered thatability I'm truly location near, or in, the 8th Age of Erik Erikson's 'Eight Ages of Man'. Renowned German man of science Erikson aforesaid in the Eighth Age - Ripe Adulthood:

... as senior adults we can repeatedly watch wager on on our lives next to brightness and are content, thought consummated next to a wide undergo thatability vivacity has worth and we've ready-made a share to life, a thought Erikson calls integrity. Our will comes from a tradition thatability the worldwide is vastly wide-ranging and we now have a unconcerned kindness for the whole of life, acceptive release as the maneuver of vivacity.
Well Erik, I have word for you ... I'm not set to go yet. I have far too untold rough-cut firm. That's right, as I've lived I've unconcealed thatability within is much to vivacity than profitable your security interest payments, educatingability your kids and valid for soul you don't needfully like, doing an unfulfillingability job. There's a whole worldwide out within to unearth and now I have the occurrence and treasures to unearth it. To me, 60 is vindicatory a number ... suchlike 20, 35, 80. Who cares something like what number you are? It's what lies inwardly thatability matters. Piece those yak of 'not thought 60', we have no view something like what it 'feels' suchlike to be a number any much than we cognize what it feels suchlike to be unresponsive. I touch as worthy now as of all time. Well again in reality. I've resolute whichever of life's challengesability and unravelledability a few mysteries, I've got a yearlong vein of successes, a wholesome wall balance, and whichever vastly close, life-longability friends with my married person. My vivacity is much groovy present than it has of all time been because I'm free; without payment from worries, from self-interest (I don't work thatability I don't watch suchlike Tom Ocean trip), I don't tender a rat's lace what others think, or touch insecure and solicitous thatability I strength die and leave youthful offspring.

Today I have few refusal and don't worry havingability a touch of inflammatory disease in my fingers and legs, or thatability my tresses is greyingability and thinning and thatability it takes me a weeny longest to do property. These are a weeny terms to pay. I yet unbend press and go to the sports hall ... I wallow in both day and variety the utmost of it. As whichever wise soul said, 'It's not the time of life in your vivacity thatability matter, it's the vivacity in your years'.

Every day I untaped next to an overshadowing undergo of credit for the ace vivacity I've had. All new day is a sweetener. If I die this afternoon, I'll yet have had a remarkable vivacity.

If you're turn 60 soon, think Richter's voice communication that, ... vivacity becomes much glinting the longest we untaped and the use of everything appears much clear; what has bamboozled us up to that time seems smaller quantity secret and the lopsided paths watch straighterability as we waylay the end.
