I've never, so far, felt old, or identified as old. It is so sad and maddening to hear people say: I'm so old. Well if you think you are, then, no matter what age you happen to be this year, you are old.
My husband and I watched a documentary last Friday called; "If I'm not in the obit, I eat breakfast." Carl Reiner. This documentary was a reflection on the lives of several, famous people over 90 years old.
Carl Reiner, Betty White, Mel Brooks, Dick Vandyke, Norman Lear, and several others, talking about getting older and how they stay vital. None of the people in this documentary identified as old. In fact, they all said, they have been more creative, more productive in their 90's than any decade leading up to that.
They stay vital by working, exercising, eating well, laughing and loving. In my opinion, they are more fun and more energetic that some people I've known in their 20's and 30's.
I've always had that same attitude. I am not old, don't feel old, don't look old, don't act old. Dr. Christian Northrup is an OBGyn, author and speaker. I watched her lecture stating; "Goddesses never age." In other words, your as old as you allow yourself to be.
What we say about ourselves, our lives, actually creates that situation or circumstance. Happiness and prosperity are a choice. Prosperity: a successful, flourishing, or thriving condition, good fortune, good health, love, happiness.
Many people think of prosperity as financial wealth. The real wealth is peace, contentment, integrity, loving people in your life and giving. The best advice I've been given, when I am in a depressed state is: Do something for someone else. Works every time.
Fantasizing the freedom to grow into a prosperous, loving and loved human being.
