You may feel like you have it all together. Invincible. Unstoppable. This is your time, right?

Or maybe you’re not. Maybe you feel like you’re falling apart, you’re losing control and forget Christmas because life is pretty much over already.

Either way, there’s only one group of people who knows how to handle it: the ones who’ve been before us.

Our culture fears aging like Charlie Brown fears football. We strive to “stay young” and “live free” but end up just falling on our faces and missing the point. Freedom is found in embracing life. In living it, not fearing it. And sometimes that means being brave enough to take advice from the ones who know what they’re talking about.
