I’m aging. I’m experiencing progressive changes in my life. I don’t heal as quickly as I used to from damage or disease. I have mobility challenges. I wear glasses for reading, too. On balance, external points of validation, i.e., other peoples’ opinions of me, matter increasingly less. I’ve become more confident. In addition, my joys have multiplied. My children have matured. They’ve graduated from various education institutes and work in fields that enable them to take financial care of themselves. They’ve enhanced my life with grandsons and granddaughters. Essentially, as I’m growing older, I’m enjoying much naches.
