We are all aging. Whether you fight it, deny it, or embrace it, it’s happening. You can’t stop it. All you can do is decide how you will experience it.
Remember, a basic rule of living intentionally is, what you expect, you experience. Unless you invest some time into consciously establishing your well-aging vision, you will naturally default to an unconscious vision of aging instilled by older members of your family and commercial culture. Yuck! Don’t let this happen to you! Yes, many changes that come with aging are unavoidable, but it doesn’t mean you have to succumb to disease, unhappiness and powerlessness.
How do you see yourself aging? No matter what phase of life you are in, begin now to envision a healthy and happy future for yourself. Get specific. Get emotional. Really see yourself enjoying the harvest of your efforts. What do you look like? What and who surrounds you? What are you doing and feeling?
