Posts Tagged ‘Aging’


Almost seems boring to write a post about the ebb and flow of everyday life.  But “everyday life” is pretty much it.  It’s what we have.  It is a true adventure, with amazing surprises at every turn. Not yesterday, not tomorrow, but today…it IS the only true reality. And making the most of that reality, is what it’s all about.

Very often, everyday life is like a pleasant stroll along the seashore at sunset, with a cool ocean breeze gently blowing. But more often these days, it feels like a week long mountain trek over difficult terrain with a full pack to carry.  It is during these seemingly difficult periods, that we learn our most important lessons…

  • Gracious, grateful and JOYFUL acceptance of each moment, and of who, and HOW we are in each moment.

The lesson might include the rude awakening to our “older” self, which probably will include certain limitations, but will definitely include new horizons and vistas which we could never have even dreamed of in our younger years.  Learning to love ourselves completely, exactly as we are at the moment, is a great blessing.  Never forgetting the child within, is part of that lesson.  There is NO limitation to being in touch with our inner child, to being  “childlike” (not childish).  It is the secret of feeling young.  Age IS only a number, but there are changes (mostly physical) associated with that number. The challenge is appreciating these changes and flowing with them, not fighting against them.

LOOK YOUR AGE

These lessons  can help bring us closer to others as well…allowing us to feel truly part of the WHOLE.

Each of us has our own unique path, but we also experience many of the same things as others along our own individual paths. Recognizing our uniqueness, as well as our similarities, makes it so much easier for us to be of assistance to others…AND to ask for assistance from others..

Being of assistance has always been part of who I am.  But the learning to ask for, and RECEIVE assistance, has taken me a good part of a lifetime to learn.  But the learning, and finally acceptance of the lesson has enriched me more than I could ever have imagined…

Allow your everyday life to ebb and flow, to unwind, as it will.  Gratefully, joyfully, fearlessly accept it exactly as it is, with complete Faith that all is truly as it is meant to be, in each and every moment, for your Higher Good, according to Divine will.
