Grace under construction: discovering ageless living and loving it!
This goddess no longer ages. And no, I didn’t find the Fountain of Youth, I changed my mindset. Say hello to Grace under construction: ageless living.
Yes, getting older is inevitable; however, aging is optional. It’s all about where you focus your attention: the accumulating birthday years or what happens in between. This was to be the most valuable lesson I was to learn this year.
As I approached the half-century mark, I quickly realized the negativity brewing in me. I looked into the mirror and the woman staring back wasn’t the same person I felt I was inside. Where did that girl go? Who was that lady?
Hard to explain to friends and family, I set on a quest to understand how this otherwise optimistic gal had fallen prey to scrutinizing every wrinkle, sag, change. Sure I look younger than my age; but, that wasn’t a consolation prize I was interested in. I didn’t feel ageless.
I came across a wonderful read, “Goddesses Never Age,” by Christiane Northrup. And it spoke to me: ageless living celebrating accomplishments and dismissing the number of candles on a cake. So relatable!
The “milestone” traditional birthday can quickly become a “millstone” in our culture if you’re not careful. It says you’re running out of time. Ridiculous!
Embrace ageless living and you’ll feel the goddess in you fired up! Don’t let anybody co-author “Who You Are” based on a simple number and related social expectations.
On May 10th, I celebrate accomplishments of the past year and my worth, not just the number. I’m age agnostic and a rebel. So says a goddess who no longer ages.
The best is yet to come.
