Looking past the immediate,and seeing it differently.

Looking past the immediate, and  seeing it differently.

I write a lot about self-lessness.

And it is important to help others,  but what about you?

Can you be selfish once in awhile is a question you may need to ask?

Take the time to focus on what it is that you need, and  try not put yourself last may be a difficult, but a good  change.

You need to help yourself before you can help others ( taking a deep breath before you can breathe for others. )

The Quality of Your Life

When I look back at my life, I want it to be filled with peace and harmony, just like this frozen pond, quiet beauty

When I look back at my life, I want it to be filled with peace and harmony. Living well and loving my life.

Many people live a long time but their quality of life may not be good

The quality of your life is much more important than longevity is, however, you can improve your chances of a healthier aging process by taking a look at what you are doing in your mind, body and spirit to keep yourself well.

Ailments Later in Life

Many people suffer from ailments later in life.

Thank You

It seems like I just turned around and my youth is gone.

Why does time pass by so very fast?

Just sitting on a bench, being thankful for life.

When you were young you did not think about how little time you have on this Earth.

Today, you may even continue this struggle with things  that should not concern you. You may have angry moments about a job, or sadness about things that are gone, but you are still here, and should learn to be happy and grateful.

I remember Sapphire Blue Crushed Velvet

Aging is different  from the other developmental stages in life, and its uniqueness should be honored.

Past good memories  are like pictures frozen in time. So clear, they sparkle like sunshine.

My Wedding

Dancers and yoga practitioners stand the true test of time. It does not seem to matter how old they are, they can still dance flexibly!

I remember that sapphire blue crushed velvet tux that my husband wore at our wedding 41 years ago. I am no longer married to him, but 41 years is a long time to remember things as clear as day. Since that time, I have been married 2 times! I am not proud of my track record for relationships, but most endings were not completely my fault, or not my fault at all, ( and number 3 is a charm.)

You Can Age Gracefully

The wonders of beautiful flowers!

Everyone wants to age with grace and dignity. Some may even become obsessed with ways to stay young.
Did you ever think that the aging process is a good thing?

Aging can help to slow you down a bit and this can allow you to listen to your body and take better care of it.

 

When you are well rested and in touch with yourself, your breathing slows down and you feel centered and balanced. As you age, you may find more pleasure in the simple things in life like the beauty in flowers or the wonders of a sunset over the lake.
