The emphasis on youth is almost overwhelming.
And advertisements CONSTANTLY tell us
we must be between young and pretty.
if we are not there,, where are we?
As a grandmother
I found a moment to say something
about this obsession of our culture.
The difference between productivity and inactivity,
is the productive people are younger in spirit and happier!
Mirrors may tell you what
other people see initially
but not what they shall see eventually,
as they get to know you.
(So stop relying too much on a mirror.)
Never allow a mirror to dictate your age to you.
If a mirror says you are old,
don't argue just turn your back on it.
UNLESS OF COURSE you
have recognized the wonderful
freedom and wisdom which comes with old.
Don't waste your time arguing
especially with static negative thinkers.
Youth will last as long
as you live it and believe it.
There are many kinds of young and
even as we age
if we are active and productive and giving
we seem to remain young at heart,
and very comfortable with who we are!.
Finally we have the best of it all.
We are young at heart and
we have experience and wisdom.
We remain young inside of ourselves
because we believe in ourselves
and strive for dreams and goals,
We remain young within our own minds
because we continue to laugh,
AND because we continue to give of ourselves to others
and because we do not forget how to have fun.
Just a note*
When you go to the GROCERY OR laundromat and come home only to
realize you never got around to combing your hair that morning, you are probably past the stage where you care too much what other people think!!
Have a good day and take care of yourself.
