IT’S SPRING!! Over the weekend the vernal equinox occurred, when the length of our days become equal, (and going forward longer), with the length of night. Rejuvenation and rebirth are everywhere. What is your rejuvenation project? I know—you like yourself just the way you are. REALLY? Exactly the way you are?
We change, the world changes, and part of our AgingButDangerous philosophy is to stay in step with the universe. Ever changing knowledge feeds the soul. In many cases our automobiles and our homes get more maintenance than our “containers” or our brains. Just because you have been doing something for years doesn’t mean that there shouldn’t be a little upgrade in your future.
Let’s take ice cream—frozen guilt. After decades of bovine domination, enter the free range goats—a rebirth of sorts. When made from goats milk, this delicacy made by Laloo, contains about half the fat of the old familiar standby, has more calcium, magnesium and potassium, and no antibiotics or growth hormones. Laloo’s, utterly delicious!
How about M & Ms? Talk about a tired, but familiar old standard getting a little update. New colors like silver, “electric green” or pearl have pumped new life into this beloved treat. Custom design your own signature decadence. M & M Premiums have transformed from the inside out—always an admirable exercise.
And if there is any doubt left that you can teach an old dog how to “glam up”, enter the new, glamorous, glitter infused, scented, multi shaded, glow in the dark Crayon. Crayola sensed that after a century they might need a little physical and emotional lift—we concur—wouldn’t we all?
Most importantly spiffing up from the inside out will do what no other cosmetic or external perk can ever do. Find JUST ONE THING about the way your brain works that you would like to “re-birth” and replace it with a positive, inspirational saying or thought. Since 95% of what we do is from habit, you CAN re-program your brain. My spring mantra is “love never fails”. So when I get irritated with the numerous people that know how to push my buttons, I pause, smile and think, “love never fails”. Temporary relief, from the urge to deck somebody, is as gratifying as a spring flowers.
Like the classics we mentioned above; try enhancing your color, reducing your fat or sweetening your existence. A snazzier, updated you for spring will bring you great joy—almost as yummy as that ice cream.
