I can and I will live a long and happy life.
Today is my 65th birthday. It is a happy birthday and I look forward to many more. I like to tell people I have plans for my 100th.
We live in an area where people come to retire. I live surrounded by people who do not share my positive outlook on birthdays and getting older. A common phrase around here is “getting old sucks.” I recently heard someone say “there’s nothing golden about the golden years.” I wish people would stop saying those kinds of things.
You see, we create our own reality with our thoughts and our words. If we believe getting old “sucks,” it will. Too many people choose that reality for their “older years.”
It helps if we develop a healthy attitude toward aging at a young age. The better we take care of our bodies and learn to accept ourselves and our bodies no matter what our age the better outcomes we can expect as we grow older.
Today is my birthday. I am 65 years young. I will still celebrate in spite of COVID. We are not going out to eat, but I am treating myself to gluten free Oreos and chocolate dipped strawberries. I will practice yoga, meditate and even do a happy dance. It’s my birthday and no matter what is going on in the world around me I choose to celebrate!
