Aging Gracefully, or Wasting Away Without a Fight…

We are often told to “age gracefully”, meaning to accept the inevitable with dignity and class.  Some say that the visible signs of aging are badges of respect, and limitations that we have earned.  I say hogwash.  When has humankind ever advocated giving in to an insidious, relentless destructive enemy without a fight?

The “graceful guys”  try to confuse the issue.  Their supporters are simply seeking an easy way out, or justification for laziness at worst.  It is not about accepting the inevitable.  That is the inevitability of death.  And it is not about withholding respect for those who have earned it over the years.  Respect, dignity, class;  putting up a battle against pain, arthritis, cancer and other grievous ailments deserves admiration, instead of belittlement by those who would rather bend their neck to the ax.

As an age reducer, I know that I will most likely die just like everyone else here right now.  However, by putting up a partially winnable fight I am prolonging the years in which I can enjoy my health and my capabilities.  Thats all I’m  after.   I think its a worthwhile pursuit.
