“Maturing Gracefully: Teaching Our Youth to Reverence the Art of Aging”

In a world that often glorifies youth, it’s crucial to impart a different wisdom to our younger generations – that aging is not just a natural process, but a privilege and an art form to be revered. How can we guide our youth to respect and even aspire to the grace of maturing?

Understanding Aging as a Privilege:

The first step in this educational journey is to redefine aging. It’s not a period of decline, but a stage rich with wisdom, experiences, and stories. To age is to have lived – a privilege denied to many.

Intergenerational Bonding:

Encourage interactions between young people and mature people. Whether it’s through family gatherings, community programs, or mentorship initiatives, these interactions can break down stereotypes and build understanding and respect.

Storytelling and Legacy Sharing:

Mature people are living libraries. Encourage them to share their stories, life lessons, and experiences. This not only fosters a sense of continuity and history but also shows the youth the richness of a life well-lived.

Positive Media Representation:

Media plays a powerful role in shaping perceptions. Advocate for and support media that portrays the mature in a positive, active, and dignified light. Films, books, and TV shows that celebrate aging can help alter perceptions.

Education Through Arts and Culture:

Use art, literature, and history to teach about the aging process and its role in different cultures. This approach can help young people appreciate the diversity and beauty of aging across the globe.

Promote Active Maturity:

Showcase examples of older individuals leading active, fulfilling lives. Whether it’s a grandparent running a marathon or a senior engaging in community service, these examples can inspire respect and admiration.

Celebrating Milestones:

Encourage the celebration of aging milestones in a positive light – birthdays, retirement, etc., should be occasions of joy and accomplishment, not dread or pity.

Role Models and Mentors:

Connect youth with older role models who embody the positive aspects of age positivity. These role models can offer guidance, wisdom, and a firsthand perspective on the beauty of growing older.

Educating our youth about the privilege of maturing is more than changing a narrative; it’s about creating a future where every stage of life is valued and celebrated. It’s about building a society that looks forward to aging with anticipation, not apprehension. Let’s join hands in this vital mission and help sow the seeds of age reverence in the hearts of our younger generations.

As an active Realtor®, and in sales for 45 years in Washington State, Patricia coaches women in sales to “Refuel” by turning their “I Can’t” into “I Can.” She interrupts the negative behaviors that have sabotaged them and helps them create a new path towards positive results. Albert Einstein once said “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results.”

Patricia’s own story of trauma, death, and a slew of bad decisions as a young adult, forced her to flip her own inner script, or face alternative consequences. By interrupting and healing the negative behaviors that sabotaged her, she was able to find the courage, and new found energy to move forward in all areas of her life. She did this with the action of five words.

These inspiring words created her Exclusive Diamond Method”, as Patricia believes we are all a diamond in the rough, just waiting to shine! So, begin the healing, and shine bright like a diamond.
