While many societies embrace aging, ours shuns it. We hide signs of aging and whistle past our mortality. We have euphemisms to avoid the “D” word. We create a new apartheid- based on age- that segregates elders in assisted living facilities and nursing homes. All our fear of aging- our denial- undervalues time and erodes our self-esteem. Imagine the benefits of coming to terms with aging. Coming to Terms with Aging: The Secret to Meaningful Time offers an alternative to denial, an inspiring way to deal with life’s natural pathway. Learn the most common aging fears and how to deal with them. Discover how our mortality enriches life. This hopeful book introduces Life Awareness, an approach to master your fears. It frees you to focus on the present- to enjoy every sacred second of it
