some of us are not aware that aging is a process in life cycle development. Self-awareness is crucial as one ages. This helps you to make good decisions and to avoid unnecessary stress.

Aging gracefully

when we are born aware of our presence on earth and all our needs are taking care of. We do not have to worry about what to eat where to sleep or whether people like or dislike us. However with time we begin to be aware of our existence and start noticing the fine things of life. we can now differentiate between what is good and bad, thanks to the society that has prescribes the rules and regulations of operation. We soon realize that to lead a comfortable life, requires some input in terms of work from our end, and so we are initiated into a rat - race. This rat - race sets the pace of our lives and with time, if we are not careful we can be so engrossed in the race and forget that we have a life to live.To age gracefully means being able to enjoy every moment of your life and the people around you. This can be achieved even without a lot of material wealth that keeps us on our toes to acquire,. I have seen elderly men and women in Africa full of contentment by just spending the whole day with their grandchildren. As we age we need to slow down to reflect and have time to pass on the accumulated wisdom to the future generations.
This is one of the greatest achievements in life. Self- awareness of what one needs to do at every stage of life is crucial. There is time to sit, crawl, walk,and run. let us run when it is necessary and slow down when we must.
