Isn’t interesting that when we go to the doctor, we tend to ask only two questions – what is wrong with me and why did this happen. We then wait for them the tell us how they will get rid of the problem. And I don’t think this happens only at the doctors. Too many times we are keen to find out the why, and the what but fail to seek the answer to the how. Sure we asked how this happened, but the most import question we should always asking is -“How”!
How WE can help solve the problem ourselves.
In my recent book – Aging Safely at Home, not in A Home I wrote about attitude and how it is so important to how we live our lives on our terms.
I would like to start this chapter with a famous quote on the topic by Winston Churchill that speaks volumes about attitude in a single line:
~ “Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.” ~
Take that into consideration when you have the conversation with either your family or your physician about remaining in your home as you are getting old.
Let me share a little bit more on the topic of attitude. Whether we are aware of it or not, our attitude often determines how well we do in life. There are only three types of attitude: a positive attitude, a negative attitude, and a neutral attitude.
Essentially, what you think, what you do, and what you feel are what form your attitude.

That is why I encourage you to continue to ask How!
- How can I stay healthy?
- How can I maintain my independence?
- How do I ensure I am making the right decisions?
- The list goes on, but I am sure you get my point.
