“When it comes to aging, women are held to a different standard than men. Some guy recently said to me: ‘Don’t you think you’re too old to sing rock ‘n’ roll?’ I said: ‘You’d better check with Mick Jagger.’ ” ~Cher
Last year, I coached a journaling workshop that focused on aging topics such as facing retirement, finding new purpose, rebooting our social lives, maintaining optimism — and so much more. We also discussed the challenges and roadblocks we face in our senior years. (We’re never too old to rock ‘n’ roll, as Cher points out.)
The workshop inspired a new spin-off program — an informal aging support group that meets monthly at Clawson’s Blair Memorial Library. The new program combines journaling exercises with group discussion — because we all benefit from sharing our ideas and experiences.
This new group meets every third Monday of the month from 6:30 to 7:30 in the evening. This program is free to the public, but space in the conference room is limited. To reserve your space, please phone the Blair Memorial Library: 248-588-5500.
