As I am moving toward my 75th birthday on May 22, 2017, my eye is continually pulled towards all the ads I see about ‘anti-aging’. I ask myself, why would I be AGAINST aging? One of my mentors, teachers and guides is Esther-Hicks of the Abraham series, and they remind us that ‘we can’t get what we want by pushing against what we don’t want’. Anti (against) is NOT what I want. What DO I WANT? Ahhhhh….read on, my friend! Let me count the ways!
How then do we Age Gracefully?
Follow me on this journey: Let’s Re-Define what the term of ‘Aging Gracefully’ and the Golden Age CAN mean to us!
The old 50 is the NEW 70!
Did you know that you have a CHOICE to either REACT to events and circumstances, or to CREATE what you want instead? I call it: ‘Conscious Choices’!
I make conscious choices each day to have my life filled with purpose, passion, and a mission to GIVE BACK…to Age Gracefully!
Instead of roaming aimlessly, I am directed to fill each moment with creative forces of movement, great nutrition, good friends, focus, sustainability, and financial gain. Creating and re-creating myself is a joyful experience, and the AWE of living in the L.I.G.H.T of life inspires me. L.I.G.H.T is my acronym for: L.iving I.n G.ratitude, H.armony & T.rust. In fact, it is my motto! ‘I want to inspire people. I want someone to look at me and say, ‘Because of you, I didn’t give up’.
I choose to take all of the lemons in my life and make lemonade!
My life was starting to be defined by ‘outside circumstances’. The experience of my Golden Years was RUSTY! Losing our home to a short sale, and having to move into a motorhome, while having my husband have a heart attack, stroke and filing bankruptcy were catalysts to start my serious RE-DEFINING process. I am so happy and grateful for this ‘misfortune’, as it has moved me into my HOLY SHIFT, and the re-defining of my Golden Years…into a purpose of my destiny!
My friend, Teresa Velardi recently was published in an anthology called ‘Purpose Shakers’. She quoted scripture which is relevant to me: ‘After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.’ 4 Kings 19:42.
These years now are ones of Conscious Choices which are based on the feeling tone of joyful, abundant experiences. By learning that my lessons were only perceptions, I am able to SHIFT my perceptions, and Look for the Good and Praise It! I am clearly knowing that ‘God had a Plan! As I listened to the ‘ whisper’, I am now called Lady Rejuvenator, with my role of Inspiring Transformation, Rejuvenation and Vitality. (Rejuvenation means to come back to life!)…I like that! That’s called ‘Aging Gracefully’!
Not only am I creating Magnificent Abundance, but I am doing ‘that which is MINE to do, with those I am to do it with’. Working and playing with those you love and adore is a new perception and experience for me. Finding and creating an abundance-consciousness team is a pleasure. Serving in a new way of plenty is my Re-Defining my Golden Age.
Being in that state of consciousness brings many GIFTS to me (and to you too). You know, we are all MAGNETS…and our lives are simply MIRRORS of our inner consciousness. Changing our minds can be the number one catalyst for changing our lives! Rusty years or Golden years? Your choice!
