I wish you blessings for the New Year. I can’t believe that this is the year I will turn 80.
It’s a great big number. Each one of us experiences our age differently. Some get depressed as they age and resist the changes, others embrace the process.
I am delighted that I wake up each morning. Yes I am stiffer, I don’t have the same energy I did at 40 and I have to come to terms with that. I am blessed with good health and good skin, when I say “I am getting old” people say “No you’re not”. Well, yes I am and I am coming to terms with all the joys and sorrows that go along with that normal process.
I invite you all to take a look at how you feel about the word “old” and how you are going to greet each day. I am not suggesting you deny any part of who you are. I am inviting you to be present with each moment, even if you are getting “old”.
