by Lewis Richmond. Recommended book.
From the book jacket:
Richmond offers an inner roadmap for aging, acknowledging the fear, anger, and sorrow many people experience when they must confront the indignities of their aging bodies and the unknowns associated with mortality, as well as explaining the four key stages of aging:
* Lightning Strikes (the moment we truly wake up to our aging)
* Coming to Terms (comparing ourselves now to how we once were)
* Adaptation (letting go of who we were and embracing who we are)
* Appreciation (acknowledging that “This is my life, I have no other”)
