Imagine we didn’t have age and we celebrated birthdays like most of us celebrate Christmas: lots of presents, happy-happy family and friends with loads to eat and drink! However we do live in a complicated world with unfair rules, that often control and manipulate the way we tend to view age and numbers.
This is what age means, scientifically: “Aging is the process of growing old chronologically. Old age is a usual process of life that occurs to everyone. A person is called old on the grounds of this chronological age. In reality, it is the functional state of a living organism, meaning the biological age that decides the aging process of a person. Aging is a period of numerous illnesses and common disability. In addition to an increased level of illness, the aging process itself shows the way to certain disabilities such as low vision and loss of sight resulting from cataracts, deafness resulting from nerve destruction, loss of mobility from arthritis and a common inability to care for oneself.There are several types of physical appearance that give useful clues to aging…”
We as human beings experience the unavoidable process of old age. To live in acceptance of our aging process, not only means we loose our fear of it, we are also setting us ‘free’ from our destined circumstance. In the end, it really doesn’t matter what ‘age number’ we are. It is all about how old we feel on a physical and mental state with regards to our own aging process.
Ask yourself that question today, inspect your outer and inner being carefully and see what is your true age. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
Just because we are getting older, doesn’t mean we have to look old as well….I am sure you have heard this before. On my 30th birthday I became down right anxious and very much aware of my age.
Over the months, I learned that a youthful appearance has little to do with age. A woman can keep her youthfulness even in her 40’s just by staying out of harsh sunlight, avoiding stress, cigarettes, eating right, exercising and getting enough sleep. Age is a process of change and measured chronologically. A person’s birthday is often an important event and is in direct relation to the ageing process. I personally do not agree with the latter. However the term “ageing” is somewhat ambiguous. As for myself, I commit to living a healthy, happy lifestyle with balance and moderation and of course all in acceptance of my age.
Ageing is part of being human. It does not mean you should place each person in an ‘ageing box’. I feel 50 sometimes, look sometimes 28 and act sometimes like a 5 year old! At the end it is just a number anyway and we are as old as we feel and look.
So please embrace your age, stop judging and give each person a chance, no matter what or who he is and enjoy your ageing process 😉
In our fast paced world, we need affirmations on how beautiful we look. We compete with latest fashions, socialize with our trendy peers and we hastily page through our fashion magazines where we daydream of how perfect we would look like: ‘If only I …’
The truth: ”Fashion is an illusion that creates an urge or desire within ourselves of what we can never be.”
Fashion is a business. It is a façade to keep us away from who and what we really are. We compare ourselves to super models and create huge expectations resulting in lack of confidence and stuffing ourselves with whatever is in our fridges.
We need to learn how we want to communicate to the outside world. Explore how you can enhance your natural features, what compliments your beauty and what works for you.
We can make it our business to look good. We can take the power back because we are the driver of our own lives. The good news is that the world has enough for everyone and everything. Our planet will be in perfect harmony and equilibrium as there will be no waste.
It is worth communicating your own style to the world and be the individual you are. Apply this view in all aspects of your life and you will live with confidence, happiness and authenticity, wherever you go.
Three letters with a lot of meaning and it affects every human being on this planet. What comes up for you when you say the word, ‘cry’? Do you feel sad, happy, relieved or do you feel nothing?
According to Wikipedia, crying can be defined as a complex secretomotor phenomenon characterized by the shedding of tears from the lacrimal apparatus, without any irritation of the ocular structures.
The way I see it, crying is all about expressing oneself and letting go. It is proven the act of crying allows oneself to touch base with one’s emotions and its the body’s natural response to one’s emotions. It unblocks emotional congestion to flow freely into a new dimension of joy and forgiveness. It allows one to see life with a new, fresh approach and creates opportunities for growth, love and lightness.
Why don’t we advertise crying and its benefits? Why do people turn their cheeks when they see someone crying in public? Babies cry freely, why can’t we? Why do we cry in our homes, in our bedrooms where no one can see us? Why don’t restaurants cater for crying evenings and cinema’s have crying nights instead of ladies nights? Why don’t politicians take part in crying assemblies instead of arguing or fighting with each other? Sounds amazing doesn’t it? What happened?
Somewhere down the line, we were all brainwashed that crying is for babies. Point is one should not feel embarrass to weep it all out. It will not make us weak or turn us into ‘chicken’. With crying comes profound results, great power. After all, it is part of being human, part of you and part of me. Cry…
