“Growing old is mandatory — growing up is optional” — Walt Disney.
I think we get wiser but we also start to express our Inner Child. I have found I feel years/decades younger than I did when I was in my 20’s or 30’s. I cared more about what people thought of me & that caused an enormous amount of internal stress. Now I don’t give a crap. And it’s liberating and makes me feel much younger. Yes, my left knee is unhappy because of that riding accident back when I was 15 — so since I don’t want surgery — we don’t run any more. But I can do yoga — so I do. I’m not ashamed of the mild consessions I make for my Body. She had carried me through many emergencies with Grace. She deserves to be honored and cared for. But movement is good for Her and so we move. We eat right. Etc. Someday we will part company Her & I. But I know — I will go on. To the Next Thing when This Thing called Life passes. Circumstances pass. but Spiritual Beings move on.
Thank you for reading and thank your response. ❤ I’m so glad you’re here with me in this moment. And neither one of us ‘has passed’. :)
