Making Peace with Aging

Making peace with my inner crone this week/year. I have heard that we all have three parts of life. At least that was the Sphinx's puzzle. What walks on four legs in the morning, two legs at noon and three legs in the evening? Why we all do, of course. All of us. It is the letting go of the noon phase which I have lately found so difficult to do. But mid-to-late 50's, making peace with the three is imperative for my serenity. Cutting back, cutting down, finding serenity in the lessening of vigor, is easier to say than to do sometimes. In my case, health has made me face this sooner than I expected to. And, truly, that's a good thing.
