Live like a free spirit


A new chapter

It’s never too late and you’re never too old to start a new chapter.

Aging is a state of mind. How we think and how we feel is what fuels us. Changing our state of mind can be scary but being too afraid to try is even worse. Don’t let fear of the unknown keep you hitched to the past and stop you from evolving and growing, regardless of your age.

Reinvention is a powerful force. There’s no limit on how many times you can reinvent yourself. Have fun with it until the you you’re meant to be shows up. It doesn’t matter if you’re 20, 50, 75 or 100 years old. You’ll know when you get there, you’ll feel it in your heart and soul and you’ll know you’re home.

There’s nothing that can stop you from finding yourself.

In today’s world people are starting businesses and new careers well into their 90’s. We’re more active, we’re living longer and we’re enjoying every moment of life. That’s what matters, not the number of years we’ve been here.

Don’t look at a door that’s closed as a failure. Instead, realize there will be other doors, or maybe you’ll end up building a whole new house with shiny new doors.

The power of reinvention is at your fingertips.

Start by taking walks in nature. Smell the air, the flowers, the trees, the earth. Realize that you’re part of this wonderous, magical Universe. You will go on forever as all things in nature do.

Give in to change — embrace it — welcome it. Be grateful for all you have and let the winds of change carry you. Instead of focusing your energy on age focus on building the new life you want.

Keep a gratitude journal and read from it every day. After a few days you’ll be amazed at all the things you have to be grateful for. Use the entries from your journal as a mantra. Repeat them in your mind as you go through each day.

The greatest gift you can give yourself is the understanding that each new day gives you a fresh start. Embrace your gift and your precious life and use them wisely.

    More of your great points to ponder. As we put our attitude of gratitude into practice we can experience the joy of living. As a songwriter, a few years ago I wrote a funny song called
    I’M NOT OLD…I’VE JUST HAD A LOT OF BIRTHDAYS. As they say, age is just a number.

      Thank you Jean. I love your song title! In fact, if you send a link to the song I’ll add it to an upcoming blog post.

    I just found this blog and wanted to say thank you for sharing your thoughts with all of us. I do not like the fact that I will only continue to age is sometimes a overwhelming thought lol.
    Thanks for what you do ✌️❤️😊

      Hi Denise, thank you again for taking the time to comment. Aging is something we have no control over but I’m learning that we do have control over our reactions to aging, and over our ability to grab and appreciate the moment. And that has helped me tremendously, because the moment is really all we ever have. Laura Grace
