I didn’t use to think about transitions in my life. Their value and impact were highlighted for me when I took the Modern Elder Academy Online course. A big focus there was the transitions we go through in life, and the stages of the transitions. The conversations around this opened my eyes to the impact transitions have on our positive aging, and even on our longevity. Let’s explore my observations and thoughts so that you can also have an eye-opening experience.
The concept of elder seemed quite straightforward to me — until I started turning my coaching toward positive aging and longevity. That’s when I bumped into people who see it differently than I do. Some see the term “elder” as positive while others see it as a negative or pejorative term.
