OLD.

What’s So Great About Getting Older?
We finally learn it's not personal.

Aging is a natural process of life. It begins the moment we are born. Strangely enough, most of us live under the illusion that we and our loved ones will never become old.

When old age arrives, we are often unprepared. The natural order becomes reversed. The young help to care for the old.

Those who need to be taken care of for the first time have a hard time accepting that they need help. This condition is a product of our culture that does everything it can to conceal the loss of youth.

Confronting this reality is the beginning of a healthy relationship to life, aging and death.

Again what’s So Great About Getting Older?

We Have Much Clearer Priorities
As we age and experience new things, we come to a realization of what matter and what doesn’t. As we grow older, we are able to differentiate our needs from our wants while focusing on the matters and goals in our lives that are relevant.

We Don’t Care As Much What Others Think
As we come to understand what we can do and what is important to us, we are less likely to succumb to the negativity of others. It is when we realize that others’ judgment isn’t fatal that we will finally be able to start taking the chances and risks that we’ve held back from.

It’s Easier to Manage Our Emotions
As our tolerance increases and the amount that we care what others think decreases we are able to personally focus less on the negativity surrounding us. We realize how little the opinions of others really affect us, and are able to transform the anger and sadness that we receive into motivational thoughts.

Headaches Are Fewer and Further Between
Those of us who are chronic migraine sufferers have something to look forward to in old age!

We Have Higher Sense of Self-Worth
We experience and grow as we continue to age, realizing exactly what we are capable of.  At this point in time we have proven over and over that we can do it, and that there isn’t a better way to learn than by failing. We base our choices on what we can do, or are interested in achieving.

We Can Learn From Our Children and Grandchildren
As we get to a certain age, we tend to feel like we have learned and obtained all the information that we will need. The truth is, you will continue to learn from the generations that come after you. Our children and grandchildren, who have grown up in this new world, will have the capability to assist us and fill in any information gaps.
We will have taught these individuals the necessities of living, and the skills required to survive, now they will assist us to do the same.

As you can see, growing older is not a choice that we have in life. It is going to happen whether we brace for it or not. All we can do is focus on the benefits of getting older, and remain positive.

  1. Agree with you, I am getting old but yet feel young, and stay positive. We are getting old from physical perspective but not the mind. :)

  2. As we grow, we grow to the extend on how we live. Thus growing old for me is a matter of choice. If you want to grow as far as 100 years it's your own choice to work on it by taking care of yourself.

    It's now a horrible facts, that teens never grow old because of their vices and carefree attitude towards their future.

    Therefore for me growing old is a choice. Tell me who doesn't want to grow old and doesn't want to see their children, grandchildren and great grandchild successful. Everyone does. Isn't he?

    1. Yes. Everyone wants to grow old and see their grandchildren. I am glad you mentioned that it is a personal choice to grow old. So let us all grow old gracefully and not care about what the media says about aging and trying to hide the wrinkles or other physical appearances.

BEAUTIFUL EYES

Have you ever been told that your eyes are beautiful? You could be looking into everyone's eyes or in the mirror and wondering how beautiful eyes look like.
Is it the 'V' shape of your eyes or eyebrows?, is it the colour?, is it the size? or it is just another obvious compliment that you are used to hearing.SaD EyEs ArE BEAUTIFUL! Good people have sad eyes. I mean extremely beautiful eyes. And i do not mean that bad people have ugly eyes. Bad people have sad eyes too but lost.
You might be checking in the mirror and wondering where "lost" comes in or even wondering if you are a bad person. Haha! You are definitely not a bad person. You are just a good person but the 'lost' in your sad eyes hides the good in you.What i mean by "lost sad eyes" is that you got lost in your pain and became a bad person. You might have decided to become a completely different person from the original you because you think everyone expects that from you.Let us admit…

Money and Money Disorders.

Everywhere you look, there’s compelling evidence that the single-minded pursuit of wealth often leads smart people to do incredibly stupid things — things that destroy what money can’t buy.I ask myself the same questions. How is it that brilliant people with more money than they’ll ever need allow their hunger for even more money to cause them to lose everything? How much is enough, and why are people willing to risk so much to get more? If money is so alluring, how is it that so many people of great wealth also seem so unhappy?Just about everyone has a complicated relationship with money.The average Kenyan  seemed to suffer from a money disorder.Money disorders are persistent patterns of self-destructive and self-limiting financial behaviors.They result from distorted beliefs about money we develop from our financial flashpoint experiences.Whether it's a childhood of poverty or want, a message about money subconsciously internalized from a parent, a nest egg lost to an economic d…

Invisible Bonds

Invisiblebond is defined as “A spiritual connection between two people who have been physically intimate with each other or who have had an intense emotional or spiritual association or relationship.”
The concept of soul ties is sometimes traced back to Genesis 2:24 and 1 Corinthians 6:16.
Soul ties are differentiated into *godly soul ties, such as those that normally develop between a husband and wife and *ungodly soul ties, such as those that are said to be caused by premarital sex, adultery, various kinds of abuse, and occult activityAn ungodly soul tie … is any relationship that stands between you and all that God wants you to be.A negative (ungodly) soul tie is created when these relationships become abusive and involve sin. This can include any kind of physical, sexual or psychological abuse resulting in the pain and suffering of our soul. When we have been involved with a person, place, or thing for a long period of time, we have developed “Invisible bond /soul ties.” When that…
