ONE BENEFIT OF THE US ELECTION

As the fascinating US election draws to a conclusion this week we can be certain of one thing … the world has watched two candidates of about 70 years of age compete for the position of what is still arguably the most powerful post on the planet.  We have watched Hillary Clinton, 69, and Donald Trump, 70, on a gruelling and demanding campaign trail that could defeat many people half their age.   Whatever your views on the election and the candidates themselves we can probably agree that there is great value in people witnessing their ability to deal with the various pressures they have been under, whether they be physical or mental.  Examples which challenge preconceptions many people have about seniors being frail and insignificant is one aspect of this election which is to be welcomed whatever our personal and political viewpoints.

Between 2014 and 2016 I took time out to travel alone around Europe, blogging about my experiences, discoveries and personal development on journeywithmetoo.wordpress.com One of the many beautiful lessons I learned was the possibility of self-discovery and personal growth at any age. I am now passionate about achieving and encouraging successful ageing and making this a Silver Not Grey journey. I hope that Age With Me can inform, inspire, and accompany you on your silver journey.
