Today I was reading about a young couple that had lost two babies before finally being blessed with two beautiful boys. They write a blog about the experience at age 26 that tells of their trials and now how it is to raise their two young sons. I think it is fabulous that they now have a family they can enjoy and was totally intrigued that they could support their family in a very nice manner by writing a blog.
It started me thinking. By the age of (in my case – 67) 65, if you have had an interesting life at all, you have had lots of ups and downs, happinesses and sadness, challenges with defeats and hopefully more challenges with successes. There is a growing population of maturing adults as medicine improves and we get to enjoy aging in a much healthier manner.
Why not write a blog about aging in our society? There are so many stories out there that are captivating about interesting successes of the maturing adult. Many entrepreneurial magazines tell of the successful careers of self-starters that did not begin at a young age. There are so many benefits of being a little older, I thought maybe it might be a fascinating venue to explore.
I will call it “STEEL” as so many of us mature folks have a little steel in our hair coloring, steel in our backbone and a few have a little steel in one or more of our limbs. Steel will talk about daily adventures, senior discounts, commentary of being older in a young world, fun ideas for retiring, life stories we have lived through and hopefully make a difference to those of us that are “seniors” or will be soon.
