juicy

full of juice; succulent; very interesting or colorful, especially when slightly improper (Webster’s New Universal Unabridged Dictionary)

bold, brave, bright, cheeky, colorful, forward, fresh, hydrated, sassy, smooth, vivid

There’s nothing dried up or shriveled about your skin or spirit when you’re juicy. You are comfortable with who you truly are and hold nothing back. Your juicy joy oozes from every pore, tantalizing others to share your sweet taste for life. Now, that’s something to talk about for being ageless.

savory

agreeable or pleasant especially to the sense of taste; having a pleasant smell; morally exemplary; piquantly pleasant to the mind (Webster’s New Universal Unabridged Dictionary)

appetizing, aromatic, flavorsome, fragrant, palatable, relishing, spicy, tasteful, tasty, zesty

Savory is an ageless word because of its connection with delicious food and zest for living. When you’re savory, you blend your time with the people and things that are most satisfying to you. And, like the flavor of the most exquisite delicacy, you always leave a pleasant taste in one’s heart.

independence

state or quality of being independent; freedom from subjection, or from the influence of others; exemption from external control or support; not requiring or relying on something or somebody else (Webster’s New Universal Unabridged Dictionary)

autarchic, autonomous, competent, empowered, free, freedom, independent, liberty, license, self-sufficient, sovereign

As I reflect upon our country’s upcoming birthday, I see how the ideal of freedom on which our great nation was built, shares much in common with the state of independence that comes with aging well.  Both are born out of passion, determination, optimism, character, balance and strength.  We prosper from a shared sense of connection and community, from using our heads, and listening to our hearts.  We thrive with grace and gratitude, and knowing we are not alone, all the while remembering independence is not just about free will for all, but good will to all.

spunky

having or showing no fear when faced with something difficult or unknown; manifesting a high degree of vitality, spirit and daring (Webster’s New Universal Unabridged Dictionary)

brave, bold, chin-up, courageous, dauntless, gingery, high-spirited, lively, peppery, plucky

When you’re spunky you have a “can do” attitude.  Whether it’s trying a new recipe, running a marathon, managing your own business, or learning something new, you rise to the occasion with optimism and determination.  There’s no doubt, whatever the odds, you will always land on your feet!

success

the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors; the attainment of wealth, position, honors, or the like; a successful performance or achievement; satisfactory completion of something; one who succeeds (Webster’s New Universal Unabridged Dictionary)

abundance, arrival, boom, ease flow, flying colors, prosperity, thriving

Latin: sub (under) cedere (to go); “going beneath”

It’s interesting that the derivation of success is “going under” when its meaning is to “not go under!.” I see it more as diving into our deepest layers to uncover what holds us back and to remember where we come from. It’s is going beneath that we connect with our ageless, timeless Source, and that is the key to true success.

root

a point of origin or source; an indispensable element; to express enthusiastic approval; applaud or encourage (Webster’s New Universal Unabridged Dictionary)

bedrock, centered,  established, foundation, fundamental, grounded, nourishing, origin, solid, stability, support, substance, sustenance, soul

When we are rooted to our Source we connect with the ageless part of us.  This connection helps us grow and blossom—always providing loyal support, nurturing wisdom and unconditional love.  These loving roots allow us, in turn, to foster the growth of our family and friends.

How do you stay rooted?

passion

intense emotion that compels to action; a longing for something that promises enjoyment or satisfaction; the affection and tenderness felt by lovers; a strong or extravagant fondness, enthusiasm, or desire for anything (Webster’s New Universal Unabridged Dictionary)

alive, animated, appetite, ardor, desire, enthusiasm, excitement, fervor, fiery, heart, itch, lively, love, participate, purpose, soul, spirited, verve, vim, zeal

Sure, it’s good to have the kind of passion that Rod Stewart sings about, but when you’re ageless, your first passion is life itself. You are compelled to follow your dreams, forge connections, and focus on what truly makes you alive. You can’t imagine wasting a single moment and you know deep down, your greatest love affair is with your soul.

merry

full of cheerfulness or gaiety; joyous disposition or spirit; full of mirth; causing happiness and delight; marked by lighthearted ease of mind and spirit (Webster’s New Universal Unabridged Dictionary)

blithe, boon, cheery, festive, frolicsome, gay, glad, gleeful, happy, jocund, jolly, jovial, lighthearted, mirthful, pleasant

To be merry is to have lightness of heart, which is the fountain of youth.  It is also having largeness of heart—giving generously & joyfully of yourself, just because it makes you smile inside and out.  Merriness is an enthusiastic attitude about life, freeing you from being fearful of time or harmed by loss.  Instead of struggling against the current, you choose to float gently down the stream.  And, even though your skin may sag and wrinkle with time, the youthful twinkle in your eyes always shines through.

grip

seizing and holding fast; to grasp or hold firmly; to lay hold of (as with the hands or an instrument); to hold spellbound; competence or firmness in dealing with situations in one’s work or personal affairs (Webster’s New Universal Unabridged Dictionary)

clasp, clutch, connect, enthrall, fascinate, grasp, hold, join, mesmerize, seize

“Get a grip…come to grips with…have a good grip…to be gripped by…” These phrases all express the ageless traits of determination, acceptance, understanding and wonder. A good strong grip is something you want to have and to hold until death do you part.
