Understand that decline, simply because of age, is a choice.
The power of intention never wanes.
This is not to say that stuff won’t happen…it’s the “simply because of age” part that is important here.
Old age does not automatically mean that we step into a role of less importance, engagement or ability, unless that is what we choose to allow. It’s easy to buy in to this scenario because as a society that is what we expect and believe about aging. Everything around us on the television and in magazines is giving us the same message.
Don’t accept this because it does not have to be your truth! Look constantly at everything that you are able to do from wherever your situation places you.
Choosing to remain vital, vibrant and engaged, (despite what comes your way,) is the surest way to negate the inevitable effects of advancing years. This doesn’t mean we constantly battle the aging process, but rather that we choose to embrace it and look for the aspects of it that are good.
Face it, none of us are getting out alive, but living with the intention to contribute to the world in some way, and live each day to it’s fullest clear up until the end, is where the real power lies.
