Why Inching Towards 80

This is the post excerpt.

Aging Smart

After a decade of writing Help Parents Age Well, I realize that I and my readers–every day–are inching towards 80. Indeed, from the day we are born we inch towards 80, don’t we?

That said, didn’t the “inching” seem so much slower when we were young…. (remember how long it seemed from one birthday to the next)? And as we’ve aged haven’t all–or at least most– of us found birthdays come faster and faster. Of course, they don’t.  But….

I’m not 80 and have some years to go before getting there. Yet I think all of us want to give ourselves the best chance to age with as few 80-ish problems and as much luck as possible. So it makes sense to be informed.

To that end, Inching Towards 80 commits itself. Preventing the preventable and controlling what we can seems smart and worth the effort. Because the Sr. Advisors to my Help Parents Age Well blog shared so much about aging smart, Inching Towards 80 honors them–and motivates me–to combine their wisdom with reputable research, augmented by my counseling background.

Since I began my blog, Help! Aging Parents-- http://helpparentsagewell.com--many years ago, my parents have died as have many of my advisors. Those who remain, and I, are the focus of the age group I initially blogged about. And now we've been inching towards eighty. Not a surprise. Regardless of age, we do inch a little bit daily, don't we! Thus, following some time off following my husband's untimely death, my blog continues as INCHING TOWARDS EIGHTY. (with same format, same URL and email) The goal: to provide the same quality of information and creative ideas, but now for us because--hard to believe for me--we are those "aging parents."
