Are you one of those people who tell the truth no matter what? I once read this is usually a quality only found in young children and older adults. The kids don’t know any better. And, as we age, the older we get the less we care about what other people think of us. We can be authentic at any age, though it can take some practice and kindness when others are involved.
Aging is what we make it. I freaked when I turned 25 (I’d gone from a 28” waist to a 30” waist and thought I was fat). 30 was a non-issue. 45 nearly put me over the edge. 50? Nah – non-starter. 60 and 65 weren’t a big deal. And now that I’m closer to 70 than 60, I continue to look forward to every day.
“I’m getting old!” is the fearful cry we often hear from people, perhaps ourselves at times. But guess what? Before the newborn is bathed and wrapped up, she’s already getting older. Our time here on planet Earth is limited, but our ability to enjoy each and every second throughout our life is not.
Choose today how your day will be. Regardless of your age, determine to enjoy your day, to choose wonderment over judgment, and be kind to yourself and others. Plan ahead, in spite of the uncertainty of our times, and expect the best.
Spiritual Mind Treatment for the Week of March 7, 2021
Aging is an inevitable process. I surely wouldn’t want to grow younger. The older you become, the more you know; your bank account of knowledge is much richer.
Let the words below be your words if that feels right for you.
There is one life. That life is an all-encompassing, ever-present spiritual energy. It is out of its desire to express life that I exist. I am that energy in form.
I speak this word knowing there is no time in spirit. I accept and enjoy the human concept of time while in my human body. I rejoice in the beginnings, existence, and endings of the physical world, just like our planet Earth goes through her seasonal cycles.
Experiences of the past enrich my future. The knowledge, understanding, and wisdom I have accumulated over my lifetime continues to guide me. Others are inspired, encouraged, and uplifted through my actions, not my words.
My appreciation for the willingness of Spirit to support my every desire is unending. I release this word into universal consciousness for immediate and joyful manifestation. And So It Is!
