Teachers lie: growing old is not a choice. Nor is going back.  The best one can do is be grateful for your now,  cultivate as many good memories as you can, and whatever your age set SMART Goals. Here’s how to do that:

How to set SMART Goals


Life is a wondrous struggle and for many of us a roller coaster ride with highs and lows.  Setting SMART Goals smoothes the ride, but more important is Remembering What Matters.  See today’s Free Poster Coach

Thank you all for all you do to care and share with others. Doing a little matters a lot.


This post was inspired by this Daily Prompt: If I could Turn Back Time  If you could return to the past to relive a part of your life,which part of you life would you return to? Why?

Probably somewhere between 50 and 60. Why, my body and brain would be functioning well and I would have all the good memories. No, that wouldn’t work, because I would not know the joy of being a grandparent. Now is all we have, I am grateful mine is as good as it is.

  12. I was trying to come up with an age I would live to go back to, but it really is a hard decision! No matter what age I picked, it meant either losing memories of a great experience, or the danger of having to relive some bad ones. I think you are right. Be glad for your here and now.
