A few years ago somebody told me that I had a “well aged vibe.“ When I asked them what they meant, they simply said that I seemed to be comfortable in my skin and I had aged gracefully and intelligently. I was flattered and thankful for the compliment, (even though I didn’t completely agree, knowing the true ins and outs, ups and downs of my life) and I thought that was a really great term ~ Well Aged Vibe. So I decided to put it in my back pocket knowing someday, some way, I would use it. And here we are!
I started this project simply to share my journey. It’s not so much a blog or guide as it is simply my stories and musings, my ideas and anecdotes, my work and words, my roadmap as I try to continually figure out this crazy thing called life. No real rhyme or reason, just sharing when the spirit moves me and the thoughts hit me. Sometimes a cautionary tale, but hopefully more often, a few words of wisdom, success, and inspiration.
I’m certainly not an expert on these things, I’m not a “life coach” (that makes me laugh), I’m not giving deep, serious. all-knowing advice, and I’m not in the business of throwing out generic “5 easy tips for a better whatever!” What I am doing is putting together a collection of insights and information. Equal parts curator and creator. Maybe think of it like Mark Twain or Ernest Hemingway (or your long winded uncle Frank) sitting somewhere telling tales and pontificating on life. Some of it sage wisdom, some of it worthless crap, most of it somewhere in between… and hopefully, all of it entertaining!
My life has been a whirlwind of triumphs and tragedies, big successes and equally big failures, and a lot of life lessons along the way. Lessons that I would be lost without and lessons that can maybe help you on your life journey. As I continue to work to figure out all the ins and outs of life past the age of 50, I thought it was time to give something back and do my small part to help people age better, live better, enjoy their day, and thrive. Hopefully helping you embrace your life more, love yourself a little more, and give some of that love and knowledge to those around you.
Now more than ever, we should be sharing our absolute best with the world. None of us are getting any younger and we should be living our best life everyday – smart, strong, proud, true, honest, grateful, and authentic. We are all trying to be better humans. To live with style, grace, intelligence, humor, and love. And it would be great if we could all master those things with a truly… Well Aged Vibe! Thanks as always for tuning in. Enjoy! ~ Rob
