    We have amassed a great deal of knowledge, experience and wisdom to put us in good stead to give back to society. Let’s start to pay it forward.

We are now into the middle of 2021. How have we lived the past 18 months amid the pandemic? I’m sure we all have stories to tell. I believe we have, at varying degrees, experienced anxiety, fear, doubts and disbelief of the atrocities that happened in the world the past year and a half. Notwithstanding, I hope we also find new experiences; increased adaptability; resilience that we were unaware of; openness to change; and, joy in small simple things.

For me, taking time off to enjoy nature through walks and hikes (and a little cycling) not only reminds me of the beauty that surrounds us, it also begs my body to exercise. While I enjoy the mundane routines in staying home, I do miss the freedom to just get out and meet people - the catching up with friends over lunch; the cuppa in the afternoons with or without friends. The chunk of time I used to plan overseas trips became the slack I need to fill my mental space and my longing void. It’s a dilemma of being content with the aimless leisure and the incredible lightness of being. However, undeniably, I am blessed.

At the point of writing this, the pandemic numbers seem to be easing and we could look forward to less restrictive social activities soon. Smile.

As always, we look forward to receiving your contribution. Be it written articles, poems, photographs, or activities that you wish to share, we will be pleased to publish them on AutumnLife. If you have read an interesting book, please contribute to our Book Corner. contributions@autumnlife.sg

Do you have a hot-button topic you are itching to talk about? Or, you just want to meet up with like-minded people to chat about any topic of interest or current issues. Come to our AutumnLife meet-up sessions. Each session will be led by a member who has proposed the topic for chit-chat. This is a member-only event and is limited to the first 15 sign-ups .

Our Chit-Chat@AutumnLife is usually held at a selected cafe where the ambiance is casual and relaxing to facilitate a good chit chat over a cup of coffee or tea. The event is free for members. Members will pay for their own drinks and food at the venue.

Members who wish to suggest and lead a topic for our next chit-chat, please drop a note to founders@autumnlife.sg. Note: Topic must be non-religious and non-partisan.

According to the World Health Organisation publication World Health Statistics 2015, life expectancy of Singaporeans stands at 83 years for both men and women. This puts us in second place after Japan, where life expectancy is at 84 years. Imagine how many more years we still have to go if, for whatever reasons, you retire at 50, 55 or 60. Living active, meaningful and happy lives after 50 is certainly a very good option. Don’t you think so?

AutumnLife is a platform created by the community for the community. This community is us who have spent our first fifty years busy living. Whatever that may mean to you, we have come through it and made the necessary contributions to our families and the society. Today, we owed it to ourselves to live a more colourful and joyful life in the years ahead.

Together, we can explore new frontiers – new interests, hobbies, skills, places, eats, wellness and beauty. We can create – recreate ourselves through various self-expressions, be it the arts, music, technology and literary ventures. We are also well poised to give back to society in various ways – pick a cause to support the way we choose to, group volunteering with a difference, and pay it forward as we wish to.

That’s how our autumn life should be.
