Many people were surprised when Cher won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her leading role in Moonstruck.
When asked how she had the courage to take so many risky moves in her career, Cher responded: “This ain’t no dress rehearsal,” saying that we only have one life to live, one very short run, and then it’s over — there are no do-overs.
For therapist and blogger Damon L. Jacobs, hearing Cher’s courageous sentiment inspired him to come out of the closet as a teenager.
Today, Damon is using his experience as a therapist to help others embrace aging because the true fountain of youth is the satisfaction and inspiration you get from growing older.
Sadly many people feel that aging is something to be afraid of, and many older folks feel ignored and isolated.
On April 25, Damon turns 40, and he’s dedicating a series of blog entries–”40 Lessons of 40” to celebrate the aging process and forge a new path for anyone who has been told to fear the inevitable.
