“I went through a mild depression when I started having health issues when I was in my late 50’s. That lasted quite a while but with each new health issue, I decided to just let it be what it was and not act like it wasn’t bothering me. Getting a therapist helped with the mild depression and anger issues over other things. But as I’ve gotten farther into my 60’s [68], I decided to find things that make me laugh and make me happy.

I spend time every day on YouTube looking at funny videos, and just plain cute videos. I also looked for meditation music [meditation also helps me], and discovered there is even nature music on YouTube. I have several videos bookmarked that are just the sound of rain.

Being alone isn’t as bad as I thought it would be when I became a widow six years ago. I’ve adjusted and am now enjoying my time doing whatever I want. Or not doing whatever I don’t want to do. My suggestion is to find what makes you happy and makes you laugh, and get a daily dose of it. Even if you’re not feeling all that great, laughter will help you feel better.” -Anonymous

  1. I am proud of you. I am totally in the same boat. I too prefer to do things that bring me joy. After dealing with my pain for 35 years it has taken a turn for the worse. So I do my best to stay zen…lol…at times not so easy.

    Hugs

  2. What an inspiration you are to me! I too have various health issues, including, but not limited to, lupus and osteo, and I too have reached 68 years. But I find myself a woman in transition, with daydreams shortly becoming reality. Being brave enough to turn the page and weather the changes is a doable challenge. Thank you for your inspiring words!

  3. My motto, “do the simple thing first”, has saved me from becoming tangled in too much overthinking of a problem.
