Are you coping with your anxiety of aging?
Aging is inevitable, right? Why waste your precious bonus years of freedom living with anxiety?
I found this quote:
“Anxiety is the dizziness of freedom.”
― Søren Kierkegaard, The Concept of Anxiety: A Simple Psychologically Orienting Deliberation on the Dogmatic Issue of Hereditary Sin
It may (or may not) have been meant in a different context... but when I read it, I thought WOOOW!
Anxiety, for us retired folks, DOES come when we are finally free of the working world!
AND YES, we are DIZZY with the fear of our newfound freedom! What the heck do we DO now?
So, the big question: WHY oh WHY do we become anxious when finally FREE in life?
WHY oh WHY do we pile on imaginary "What If..." worries that rarely become real... but ruin our freedom years?
“Man is not worried by real problems so much as by his imagined anxieties about real problems”

Often we've experienced retirement through someone else's eyes, or by watching our loved ones live out the Golden Years... and assume our later years will hold the same.
Sometimes we worry about what the future holds for us. Yes, it is scary, but what GOOD does that worry do? Only serves to make you mentally and physically ill...
Instead, we must LIVE and find purpose in life so that our future is full of helping and paying it forward to others.
Meditate -- See a Doctor -- Find New Friends -- do whatever you need to do to change the course of your retired life -- and do it now!
See the book above? MOVING FROM ANXIETY TO ZEN in Retirement! Woot! You really seriously can do this like many others. No More Worries! No More Missing Outings and Events
One more quote:
“Life is ten percent what you experience and ninety percent how you respond to it.”
― Dorothy M. Neddermeyer
So the real question here is: HOW will YOU respond to your Freedom Years?
