I've worked with thousands of people over the past several decades (and have gone through my own healing process, too), so I can assure you that this meme is true.

Apropos my 66th birthday post on 9/17, this meme speaks to me. Does it speak to you, too? (By the way, I married—for the first time—the love of my life when I was 56. It's never too late.)
I’ll be 70 in four years and I say, “Bring it on!”Somebody needed this gentle reminder today… 💜 ... See MoreSee Less
Met my baby at 55. Married her at 57. Started painting at 55. Climbed a mountain 2 weeks ago. I’m 63 now and feel like I can’t wait to get up tomorrow and do something cool
I was 46 when I went back to school at a JC. 50 when I started my BA and finished masters at 52. I went through my internship and started private practice as a psychotherapist. I'm now 81 and just retired ❣️ I retired only because my bones broke down 👎as the pandemic happened. I guess I can take that as a sign 🛑. So on to the next chapter 😂
This is terrific! Thank you, Diane, for this inspiration!
I was 71 in July...I don't feel any different...walk more and try to stay healthy..which includes a gin&tonic 🤣🤣🤣
Thanks, Diane. My sweetheart and I are talking marriage, and I'll probably be 60-61 by the time of my first marriage (59 now). Happy birthday! 🧡
Great inspiration!! Thank you!
Thank you! I am 56. I needed to read this.
My husband did an Ironman Triathlon at age 65! Bring it on! 👏🏻
This totally speaks to me.
Happy birthday Diane!
Happy Birthday... to me! 🎊
I'm 66 years strong today. And for those of you born this month, a very happy birthday to you, too, September friends!
I never speak begrudgingly about my age or "aging." And I refuse to participate in conversations with people who do. I don't like that energy. As this meme says, it can be deadly.
If you hold negativity about your age, I hope you'll turn that around for yourself, too.
Time passing is inevitable. I don't just make the best of it, I thrive on it. Because to me, life just gets better and better and better.
Remember: Your thoughts are powerful and create your reality. So create a life of positive expectation, no matter how many years you've graced this earth.
Wishing you all a beautiful day. 💜 ... See MoreSee Less

Helpful when thinking about co-workers - some are so hard to interact with
Do you know that...
Grandma Moses began painting earnestly when she was 78?
Emma Gatewood hiked the Appalachian Trail—by herself—when she was 67?
Author Harry Bernstein gained writing success when he was 96?
These people weren't outliers although their achievements were remarkable. They simply did what they wanted to do and didn't let their age define them.
You can do this, too. Live your dreams. 💜 ... See MoreSee Less
As a psychotherapist, I see a lot of black sheep in my practice. They’re the ones who are misunderstood, criticized or scapegoated by their families because they see the truth and choose to confront what others put under the rug.
And they are some of the most sensitive and courageous people I know.
Can you relate? ... See MoreSee Less
Yep - totally was the scapegoated black sheep in my family (and some friend circles too).
I’ve seen this, too! Appreciate this post!
This is so true 🤍
