I am feeling inspired lately to take a stand for aging. I am tired of all the critics, stereotyping, bashing and blaming every ailment and limitation on the aging process. It feels like it is a scapegoat rather than exploring what else could be at play. I am actually enjoying the aging process and want to inspire others to look at all the blessings that come with it. With age comes wisdom and the freedom to be who you are, do what you want, and the courage to speak your truth and make a positive impact in the world, no longer concerned about what other people may think of you. I am grateful to have some really incredible role models for what is possible in your 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and 100s. I don’t currently have any role models in the 110’s, yet following Dave Asprey’s lead and research, I am sure they are out there or will be soon.
As a student of the law of attraction, we know that what we focus on expands, so certainly if you are looking for examples of deterioration and limitations that comes with aging, you will find plenty of good examples that it is true. Yet if you want to expand your vision of what is possible for you in your ‘golden years’ start to look at people who continue to defy the odds because they pay no attention or concern about what the number on their driver’s license says. People I have featured before like Edna Northrup and Tao Porchon Lynch. These are women who are living agelessly. What I mean by ‘Ageless Living’ is not that you will not age, as that is not possible, what I am saying is you live without concern over what your number is, as it is simply that, a number. It has nothing to do with what you are capable of or your contribution in the world. I was saddened to see Louise Hay pass last year in her 90s and yet I am eternally grateful that while she was here on earth, she lived agelessly, not even beginning her mammoth Hay House Publishing company until she was in her 60s. Imagine if she had bought into the general public’s view that you are ‘over the hill’ and on the decline after 50? Thank you Louise, Tao and Edna for showing us the way for ageless living!
