As we age, life changes and eventually we lose things that fill our time and bring us purpose. It’s inevitable. Peter has retired from his career, had his children leave home, and lost friends. Despite all of these things, he has found exciting new adventures and continues to live a full, happy life. Although he acknowledges the few limitations his age brings, Peter refuses to let it [age] dictate how he chooses to live his life. Everyone has different ways of experiencing meaning and joy. Although these experiences have changed, Peter has embraced it all. He has picked up new hobbies, discovered new passions, and tried daring, new things.
