“Blog of the Week: The Joy of Ageing”

gma

My husband and I are blessed with a wonderful blended family. We have 6 extraordinary children between us, all of them adults now and some starting to have their own families.  This fall we have been gifted with 2 little girls Lily and Maggie who join Nora and Arlo, and are expecting the arrival of the third baby within the next three weeks, wow what a treat!!

As I reflect on my own childhood I was very fortunate to have exceptional grandparents whom I still miss to this day. They always made me feel special and loved no matter what. They truly were a great example to follow.

Having grand children has changed me in a positive, powerful way. I find that my priorities have shifted and I need to focus more on balance in my life, in all things.  I have always taken good care of myself and enjoyed a very active, healthy lifestyle. I think that positive self care physically, mentally and spiritually are so important now. I want to be able to play with my Grand Children in the park and take them for walks in the bush and have lots of energy to keep up with them. It is so important to me to be a positive influence in their life. In order to do that I have to keep focusing on eating a balanced diet that includes a variety of foods, consistent exercise that helps maintain the integrity of my joints as well as challenge my postural muscles to keep me upright as I age, cardiovascular exercise to keep my heart healthy, Yoga and meditation to keep me calm and connected to the present moment. After all I don’t want to miss a thing!

Lovin the Grandma gig!!!!
