Do You Need a Strong Sense of Purpose to Deal with Aging?

by Sharkie Zartman, Empowered Aging Expert
December 13, 2018

Question: How important is a sense of purpose when it comes to dealing with age?

Answer: We are all here for a reason and many times we don’t know what it is until later in life.  Most of us have spent a major amount of time focusing on making money, taking care of our families, and haven’t really had the time to pursue our purpose.  But as we age, we usually have more time to explore what it is that we are passionate about.  Many people start an encore career, volunteer,  take up a hobby that excites them, or travel to places they have always wanted to go.  A purpose is something that excites you and gets you out of bed in the morning.  It’s different for everyone, and can change, but it is inspired living (from the spirit) and really does increase the quality of life as we age.
