One of the secrets to growing older is knowing how to be your own best advocate, and taking care to identify the things you need in place for a contented life. As we grow, we shift gears, refocusing as needed. For those of us with children, we center much of our energy on raising them until they can take themselves the rest of the way. Whatever path we take, life is a series of crossroads presenting opportunities to refocus our energies, forever useful as a means to define the scope of a person’s life and create meaning.
As you age, take stock of what is working in your life, and what needs alteration. If you have labored for years and realize the fleeting daylight hours should not be spent shoveling the walk, or mowing the lawn, for example, it may be time for a change of address. If you long to have neighbors in the same stage of life, or want an affordable living option so you have more cash to travel, it may be the right time to consider an Over 55 Community.
