Never Lose Your Beauty
Some people age too quickly and they accelerate the aging process by being fearful of the slightest sign of aging.
They relinquish the power they have to improve their health and their beauty as time passes.
Some women begin to panic as soon as they hit thirty.
I was talking at length with a young lawyer one Friday evening at a party put on by the chamber of commerce. She looked terrific in her long purple robe with multiple stands of black hair hugging her shoulders.
It was a wonderful evening and I had the opportunity to converse with this woman who was probably the most attractive females at the party.
…but all the time she was in the throws of anxiety…
She was about to hit thirty and had no serious marital prospects and so she worried.
She regarded herself as old.
This disregard of her own youth and vitality added a few wrinkles to her forehead which would eventually take root and make her look older.
The interesting thing is that she refused to do anything meaningful and positive to enhance her youth. She just worried that it might disappear all too soon.
So I spent my time that wonderful evening consoling a very pretty women whose fear of aging was turning her into an old powerless grump.
I told her she could do a lot about controlling the markers of age. I pointed out that she could begin to work on the 4 pillars of health and vitality
…Prudent Nutrition, a program of physical exercise, emotional competence and the decision to become the happiest person in her circle.
Some people think of themselves as old at 50 and some even at 40.
So they drift on into the inevitable pit of darkness worrying as they go and they lose the happiness that comes with greeting each day with optimism and gratitude.
And worry ages you like nothing else…
I am here to remind you that no matter how many birthdays you have had, you still have the option to see yourself as young, vibrant, and full of joy and to be young, vibrant and full of joy.
Adopt positive thoughts and words about your life at any stage. Act as if you have a great purpose and decide with each passing breath that you are going to have a ball in this life no matter what.
And remember that life and the freedom to move and to think are as one. Remember that you are the creator of your thoughts and you can choose your thoughts and your attitude every step of the way.
The more you move, the more you think, the more you plan, the younger you become.
You are as old as you decide to be…
So pick a number and let your actions and your thoughts fall in line.
Think of yourself as young, powerful, and energetic – even through the cracking of the knees and the stiffness of the back.
You are in control of your aging so don’t give up the responsibility you have to preserve your function at an optimum level.
Stay lifted. Stay strong. Stay healthy. Stay happy.
Work harder on yourself than you do on your job. – body, mind, and spirit.
It is in you that the treasure lies.
It is easy to ignore spiritual renewal but embrace the thought and practice it even if you have to go to a church or a gathering of some sort to jolt you out of your reliance only on things that you can see and touch. Respect the invisible and the intangible. That is where you will find deep refreshing revival of your spirit that will make you look young.
Do all in your power to ignite your beauty because when you look terrific you tend to feel terrific.
As the poet Dylan Thomas says,
“ Do not go gentle into that dark night, rage, rage against the dying of the light.”
