Can one really 'Self-improve'?

We probably are the luckiest people to have ever lived on this planet:
Internet allows us to learn how to improve our lives without having to travel far and beyond, and learn from others or share our knowledge with a much larger audience than ever before! More and more of us are actively improving our lives and the lives of those around us.

What if I told you that at my gym are people in their Sixties and Seventies who still practise deadly forms of Kung-fu ?
Or, about my neighbour, who at Sixty-three has re-married a beautiful lady almost Twenty years his junior, and now whatever the weather he always has a smile on his face ...

Age is just a number: multiple studies commissioned by United Nations show the direct correlation between longevity, happiness, physical and mental proactiveness. [Also confirmed by World Happiness Report !]

Perfect Date !?


Dear Self-Improving Team,

After a long term relation (over a decade) I now am a bachelor again, albeit a more senior one, now being in my 50s. Unfortunately, I am not ready for another relation straight away, but so far all my dates are looking for something more serious than ‘play’ … Finding them is also a problem, and not only because of covid. At our age most people have commitments – children, jobs, businesses, etc.
When twenty minutes before the first encounter your date sends you a text like “I deeply apologize, my son has broke his arm”, your first instinct is to offer assistance. When she is declining your help then the feeling is that of failure.
The worst, however, is when you meet for the first time someone who not only has posted her picture from Twenty years ago on her online profile, but also greats you already intoxicated. You can’t stop asking yourself “is she drinking too much too often, or, is she only a little too deep into trying to get courage on this occasion “ ?
