Preparing For Old Age While Living In The Present

Family at the Beach

I am constantly learning about my own limits and the constant changes to my body as I am slowly approaching age sixty in a couple of years.  Desire to lose weight, working out, and watching what I eat is not the only thing I must be aware of.  I must also pay close attention to the changes in my body and the new limits that are set by aging.

Our mind does not age as fast as our bodies.  When it comes to age, our minds can be deceiving, which most of the time can be a very good thing.  We all heard the old saying, “Age is just a number.”  When it comes to the mind it’s true.  However, the vessel that houses the mind says something different.

Preparing for old age while living in the present can be provide us with a wakeup call.  As our bodies start to deteriorate our mind appears not to age at all.  Of course, that is how I feel at least.  I notice the older that I get, my mind says I am able to do something until the limitations of my body counter acts with a severe shot of reality to my mind halts or slow down my progress.

The older I get, the more I feel I am running out of time.  I know I cannot be the only one who feels this way and can only imagine there are so many people who feel this way as well.  When we are young we feel invincible, but when we are in our middle age we start to shift our perspective with an emphasis on living longer and having an income to provide us to live comfortable in our golden years.

We also start to take more stock in our health, what we eat, what we put in our bodies, and how simple things that we do or normally take for granted becomes a little challenging to do as we age.  Then we notice things are changing for us.  Our vessels are aging and for some of us, our past of doing harmful things to our bodies come back to haunt us, as we pay the price of bad decisions and wished we had listen to those around us who warned us we should stop doing was it was that was harmful and may cause adverse effects on our bodies in the future.

It’s like playing catch-up, but the damage is already done.  We cannot change the past, but we can control we do for the future to mitigate the deteriorating effects of aging with a less stressful life that includes a healthier outlook on the rest of our life.  In order to do this, we must maintain a good balance in our life.  Something I am still working on myself.

Balance is easily said and a little more difficult to do.   I admire those who can seemly do this with out any thought at all. It comes so natural for them.  They are surrounded by family who love them, friends who admire and adore them.  They have good health, a healthy financial life, good careers and hobbies, a spiritual balance of belief, and a great sense of who they are, which helps them live a fulfilling long life.

At the end, that’s what it’s all about.  Having a sense of gratitude and a sense of establishment having contributed to society as well as enriching the lives that we encounter.  Servicing our ultimate purpose for being here as we shared our god giving talents, gifts, compassion, and love. So that as we lived, we may leave knowing we accomplished what we set out to accomplish with no regrets.

There will be only one WARRIOR standing.

Champion Your Life

It’s that time again. You guessed it!  It is time to hit the office and put in work.  You know that great part about putting in the work.  You get to grow as a person, you get to feel what’s it’s like to work hard for something. Sure there are times you feel discouraged but you put in the work anyway, and in you get to see what you are made.

There may be times when you feel down and out and you hear that voice inside you that won’t let you quit. This allows you to grow in strength and integrity. There are even times where life derails you but the champion in you finds the correct detour to get back on the track of success.  This is when you let that fire in your belly burn, the urge to succeed takes over and keeps you on course.  This is what solidifies YOU as the WINNER YOU ARE!

It doesn’t matter what you are trying to achieve in life, if you truly want it go get it.

BE THE CHAMPION OF YOUR LIFE!

Taking A Step Back

There are many qualities we possess and one quality intrigues me a great deal. One of those qualities that shapes us as human beings is the profound ability to always seek a satisfaction of something or someone. Whether it’s sitting in front of the television going mentally numb, or pulling all your resources together and trying to achieve what you thought at one time was clearly impossible for you to accomplish.

I have met a couple of strangers and ask, “If you had it to do all over again, what one thing in your life would you change? And why?” Some people without blinking rattled off what they would have changed and some gave great thought and answer very carefully. Never have I asked this question online but thought let me give it a world and go for it just in case someone here was brave enough to answer.

Last question, what are you most proud of outside of your kids, occupations, family and friends?
I would like to open a dialogue and engage you.
