Oct 23: #Consideration: While Living Your #LegacyLife, 

_What are the insights and ideas, investigations and interpretations, and inquires you could use to explain and describe your response(s) to this question?

“What MAKES it SO IT Matters?”

Let’s look look look at the statement this way:

What - is the question about your allocation of time, effort, and money

Map - a representative boundary of something

Actions - practices in application

Knowledge - concepts learned 

Engagement - involvement with others 

Safety - manage safe systems and lead safer practices

it - indicates (identifies) whatever you are giving thingness to because of your actions, behaviors, consequences for reasons of sharing 

Significance - your determination with feedforward from others the meaning you assign (fluctuates)

Outcomes - the monitored and measured consequences of your actions and behaviors

Information - of what you learn and know, how does it inform your actions

Transition - Transformation - of what you be-have-do because of the information, how do you respond to the change (the stimulus of response)

“Matters” is the realization that what you share can hinder and help, and by your sharing you guide another or others to dynamically balance what matters as a way to experience light and love.

Oct 20: Everyday – As data reframes as information: Is it what you expected? Is it what you found? Was it given or gifted by others? In terms of your SoloAging Legacy Project - whatever the data to information - seek the NEWSS from the NOISE!

Oct 20: #Consideration: The connection between SoloAging and Legacy lies in the unique circumstances and challenges that SoloAgers may face in their Next Fifty.

SoloAging refers to the process of aging without traditional family support structures, such as a spouse or children. When individuals are soloaging, they often need to take generative actions to map/plan for their Next Fifty and consider how they want to live a legacy they leave. 

Legacy in this context involves not only the distribution of assets but also the impact an individual wants to make on their community, society, or future generations. SoloAgers may choose to leave a legacy through philanthropy, mentoring, or other means that reflect their values and life experiences.

How do you see your SoloAging Legacy unfolding during your Next Fifty?

Oct 18: Define living and aging; What are their connections?_Sharing my research results - somewhat academic_

"Living" refers to the state of being alive, existing, and experiencing life. It encompasses all aspects of existence, including physical, mental/emotional, soulful, spiritual, and social aspects. Living involves activities, behaviors, and consequences (ABC) through the passage of time. It can be considered a dynamic process that unfolds from birth until death.

"Aging" refers to the natural process of growing older over time. It is a biological, psychological, and social phenomenon that involves shifts in an individual's physical appearance, health, cognitive abilities, and social roles as they progress through different stages of life. Aging is a continuous and inevitable process that affects everyone and can be accompanied by hindering and helping challenges.

Connections: The connection between living and aging is that aging is a fundamental aspect of the human experience. Aging is a subset of living, as it represents a specific phase within the broader context of an individual's life. While living encompasses the entirety of one's existence, aging focuses on the transitions because of socio psychological (outside in) and bio-psychological (inside out) changes that occur as individuals advance in age. Aging is a natural and ongoing part of living through which you discover, shape, and share your quality of life and consequences of living at different living life stages.

Oct 18: Define #soloaging, #soloager, #sololiving 

SoloAging: SoloAging is a term used to describe the process of aging without the traditional family support structures in place. It refers to individuals who are navigating their Next Fifty without a spouse or children to provide informal support and eventually formal caregiving. SoloAgers often face unique challenges and opportunities related to aging, including the ways and means to remain relevant, leverage experiences, and share contributions.

SoloAger: A SoloAger is an individual who is experiencing SoloAging. 

SoloLiving: SoloLiving is a broader term that can refer to individuals of any age who are living independently and alone, without a spouse or children in their household. It can encompass various life stages, including young adults who are not married or parents, as well as older adults who are SoloAgers. While SoloAging specifically focuses on aging, SoloLiving is a more general term that can apply to people at different phases of life.

Connections: The connections between these terms are primarily related to the absence of traditional family support structures. SoloAging and SoloLiving both involve individuals who are not part of a typical family unit. However, SoloAging specifically pertains to the challenges and opportunities faced by older adults in this situation, including planning for their later years and legacy. SoloLiving can encompass a wider range of ages and life circumstances. Essentially, SoloAging is a subset of SoloLiving that focuses on aging-related issues.
