better or worse than what you had expected?
What are some
of the good things that have happened with getting older?
What are some
of the challenges of getting older?
What are some
of the surprising aspects of getting older?
What would
you tell a young person about the years of adulthood or old age?
Is there any
critical advice that you would want to give a young person?
What are you
currently doing to improve your perspectives upon certain aspects of your life
or the process of aging?
