Aging Well & Wonderfully
Top 10 Sensational Life Choices
Aging Gracefully...with Passion & Purpose!
1 Share Your Joys of Life!
Learn to embrace who you are, where you are in life, and determine where you want to be. If you are not sure, as I was not for a long time (not until I was in my 50's), be willing to try new and different things and no doubt you will discover a passion that you did not even know you had...that is exactly what happened to me, and it can/will also happen to you!
You have lived a long and fruitful life! Share your positive experiences with others. Reminisce about the good times, your accomplishments, and your lessons learned. Mentor a young adult, and remember that you can learn something from them also...don't be a know-it-all.
2 Surround Yourself with Positive People!
Being positive about life will have others wanting to be around you. Laugh out loud, Love Much and be willing to learn something new everyday! Do not let anyone bring you down with their negative attitudes. Abruptly tell them you are not inetrested, change the subject, or simply walk away.
3 A Willingness to Try New and Exciting Activities/Adventures!
What are some of the things you have always wanted to try, but never got around to? Well, now is the time to 'just Do It!' Give it a try. What are you waiting for? It can even be a modified version of your original desire. It may even be something you have never thought of before. Be spontaneous!
Be persistent in pursuing your primary goals. You will find the journey quite rewarding. Especially when you proceed in a practical way...being realistic about those things you want to accomplish. Challenge yourself to stretch and you will find fulfillment in your achievements. Be prudent in your actions remembering your choices will affect your future well-being. And lastly, through it all, keep a playful spirit and enjoy each moment privately, and/or with the people who are in your company at the time.
1 Persistence & Practicality
2 An Honest Self-Assessment
Do this if you really want to reach a higher level of self-awareness, that will result in a life fulfilled. Stand in front of your bathroom mirror, unclothed. Look at yourself, and intensely stare into your eyes for at least 1-minute. You will get lost in the moment, and more than likely your gaze will last longer than a minute. Do not use a timer, just let the moment flow as it may.
With no distraction, focus on what you see, who you are and your level of satisfaction.
I heard the following statement one day, and have made it a part of my daily living 'If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours.'
Expect the best, and it will come to you, that is as long as you don't force it, but let it come naturally. It will come when you are ready for it, and most unexpectedly.
3 Spread the Joy!
