Although apparently a vocabulary topic, given the nature of language in culture I thought it more appropriate here. I think we need a word for, "determinedly facing down the increasing effects of aging by being amazed I still exist in the first place."

An admirable attribute.

Erm . . . "Ecstatic about existing" - "ectatisting"

"Thankful to be alive" - "gratevivendous"

Cain, while wandering around as his descendants have been doing, would call it ABEL: Absurd Belief in Extending Life, a syndrome with old roots.

Thanks for the replies. I see I stated that a bit ambiguously. I did not mean to extend life, I meant that in the face of the unavoidable effects of aging, e.g. loss of dexterity, longer recovery from injury, etc, etc... that one counters the potential negative psychological effects of those things with the good fortune of still being alive and the wonder of being.

Do we not already have a word for that - sanguinity?

Mine was the pessimistic take. The acronym LIFE: Living It Fullest Ever, might be fitting the sanguine take.

Positive Aging is basically adopting a positive view of aging as a healthy, normal part of life - and the wonder of it. (I added the wonder part for your second concept.)

Obstimazing: confounding the obstinacy of aging can be amazing.
