Growing Alive Instead of Old

You can grow old in the darkness of night or grow alive in the light of your sun--your choice. Richard J. Leider and David A. Shapiro take you by the hand and help you see how to let go of the things that don't bring you alive and replace them with things that do. Can it really be that simple? You decide.

Claiming Your Place at the Fire lets you see how to believe that every second of human life is valuable. And, oh how our needy world needs the best of every single one of us. If you can answer a telephone and speak, you can volunteer, for example, on a prayer line where people call for comfort in times of turmoil and are so grateful when they get a live person.

When you are tempted to give in to your aches and pains, do remember Stephen Hawking, our modern day Einstein confined to a wheel chair, who had a body that was unable to respond to him. So, he used to the fullest what was able to respond to him, his mind, and blessed the entire universe with his wisdom.

Best of all, Claiming Your Place at the Fire, makes you feel warm and comfortable about walking your path instead of so afraid of what will happen to you from one minute to the next.

Good for you. My skydiving story centers around my friend and I each saying to each other "you go first" when it was time to get into the plane. Neither of us would go first and neither of us got into the plane and neither of us ever went skydiving. I did hang glide and also did para-sailing where kids on drugs almost decapitated me by hooking me up wrong. So, I got legislation passed in NY that forced para-sailing operators to be insured and to pass OSHA inspections. Haven't heard of any para-sailing accidents since the legislation passed almost 15 years ago.

Great review! I am all about the whole cliche age is only a number and have been very fortunate in my life to be inspired by amazing women that defy the stereotype of the fragile, lonely old woman.

Good for you! One of my best friends is to be 87 next month, fun, funny, wise and interesting and not a senile bone in her body, and she still has great legs and shows them! Bless her heart.

Bless her indeed...my friend is a skydiving instructor and tells me of countless women that decide to dive out of the plane. I'm about to go for the first time on 4th of July- they gave me the courage!

Thanks Donna. I agree with you about volunteering. My company Electric Envisions, Inc. is 20 years old this month, and I committed to at least 20 hours a month of volunteer time for individuals and non-profits. So far, I have fulfilled it.
