At 59 I feel amazingly alive, and live life as an adventure! Come and adventure with me!
It has been an amazing journey, this life that is mine. I would like to share a few insights with you that may help you along your life. They have certainly opened my eyes and heart along the way.
-As much as you want it to, you cannot make time go faster.
-You cannot turn back the hands of time to slow it down either.
-Life is a process, and will unfold the way it is meant to unfold for you.
Fly - be free!
-The way we have been brought up affects how we live our lives and who we become.
-Being compassionate with those in your life allows for great learning.
- People are much more responsive and open to someone's understanding than their criticism.
-And if you don't want to know then don't ask! But if you do want to know, then listen with your heart, and not your opinions or judgements.
Life can be miraculous!
- You cannot ever truly know what it is like to be another person.
-Don't ever give up!
-You cannot change others- you can only change yourself!
-If you hurt someone by your words or deeds, apologize!
Life's journey is full!
-Forgive those who have hurt you!
-If you are not sure what is going on, don't assume, ask!
-We have 2 ears and 1 mouth for a reason!
-We are not all born knowing who we are or what we need or want, for some this is the whole point to the journey!
-And if you believe in God, believe that God is in you. This can give you great comfort in times when you feel alone and at the bottom of a pit, or when you can look at the miracle that is this world we live in and the life we live. Marvel each day at the beauty of everything around you. Realize that we are but a speck in time but it can be fantastic while we get to be here!
Marvel at the whole thing!
-Our road is one that will twist and turn, have bumps, potholes, diversions and detours. If you take it one step at a time, know that each step takes you farther along your path.
-There are over 7 billion people in the world-each of us unique.
-We can change ourselves, we can bring love and kindness to the world if we are so inclined, or we may walk in fog all of our lives, never knowing there is another way.
-Think before you speak, because if you speak harshly to someone you cannot take those words back.
- We each have our own path to walk. Walk your own path first before you decide to step on someone else's.
-And truly, if you live a life that helps you grow, brings tears to your eyes and laughter to your lips, if you cherish sunsets and rainbows, if you cry at the unjustness of the world, if you become a warrior for the downtrodden, and a bringer of hope, or if you are truly here to just open yourself to the possibilities of the world then be that person.
-One of the best things we can do is to love, love ourselves, love each other, unconditionally. And if you have to put conditions on your love you need to look at why.
Go with the flow!
Now these are my thoughts and insights, based on
my experiences. Some of them are easier to hang on to than others but life takes time and so does the process. May you live your life to the best of your ability and love yourself enough to know who you are, and be ok with that.
