So why Fantastic??

Well, my dad, Butchie Davis, would say “Fantastic” to just about everything.

Earned a good grade – Fantastic.

Need a new dress – Fantastic.

Car won’t start – Fantastic.

As a result, you can imagine his expression, voice inflection and tone in many different scenarios. So I’m thinking with all of life’s changes, choices and challenges ahead, “Fantastic” feels like a perfect word to describe our lifestyle choice. The “55” helps identify where we are in our lifecycle. And although I’m not 55, I sure hope people still think that I am… forever 55.

 

A few Facts

Organizations like the MIT AgeLab, Administration on Aging, AARP, Milken Institute for the Future of Aging, the Association of Mature Citizens and more are in the aging business.

They are considering:

-Being lonely is unhealthy, hence equals smoking 15 cigarettes per day.

-FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) is a worry for 55 and betters since they are not exposed to new items.

-Those over 50 will leave a legacy of philanthropy of both time and money.

-“Superagers” stay sharp and you can incorporate their secrets into your everyday living.
