LOOKING FORWARD TO EVERYTHING: A PERSPECTIVE ON AGING
Why not have a life, if you possibly can, where you’re looking forward to every stage? Stressing about how it might end only harms the life you live now—and, as the great sages tell us, “now” is all we ever have. So let’s work to change what we’re able to change and, in the meantime, keep looking forward to all that’s to come.
Dr. Sharon Whitehill was an English professor in Michigan for over 30 years. Since retirement, however, her love of teaching has taken the form of liberal sermons, lectures, and adult-education classes in literature, film, and mythology. Recently she has been active in a UU-sponsored series, “Building the World We Dream About,” on white privilege and racial justice. She also co-facilitates a life-changing spiritual-awareness program called “Awaken to Ego, Discover Your Spirit” with her husband, Jim Meloy.
