I have been a member of Vibrant Nation for years now and hardly post, but this one is for me! Actually, it is screaming for me to post!
I am in my 60′s and feel like I have awakened from a nap with a new outlook on life gradually budding since about my middle 50′s. I love being able to express myself in positive ways and not worry about the outcome or what people think of me. My loved ones know me well and that is what matters.
I hear the compliments from my dear husband, family, and friends and take note more often and realize how precious they are. Leave the youth to my children and 6 grandchildren and marvel at their looks instead of my own…for it is their time. This body is changing and I am groovin’ (for lack of a better word) on being the older and wiser now. I am finally here. Does this mean I have finally found myself? HA!
I still love to hike mountains, dance in my living room, and garden! I just do it a little slower. I have learned that racing up the hill makes you exhausted and you can endure the climb and sweat less by being slower. Maybe you may look more beautiful then but who the heck cares! The tortoise and the hare theory is the best still and should be applied or you may end up with injuries.
I’m thinking that this must be mainly due to the technological age we are living in but I am more keenly aware of noisy places – for example, restaurants, where people talk so loud that you can hear everyone’s conversations across the room. I do not like being there unless it is a rock and roll concert. Then just bring it on because that is my generation’s music and I love it. I also feel there is time for Motown, Soul, jazz, classical and country and western with a little salsa thrown in the middle. I grew up listening to everything on one radio station and I now know why I can enjoy all of it.
There is a time for every purpose under heaven. I love my peace and cherish my time now!
PEACE to all of you!
