I’m all about agelessness, but that doesn’t mean I’m down on aging, or that I live in denial of aging, or that aging is bad. I’m not ageist! Heck, in fact if turning 50 was this good, I’m all for getting even older, bring it on!
We all age, it’s a fact of life. With age the body wears out. Slowing down, wrinkles, etc, are all part of the process, and I welcome them and whatever the future may bring, while still affirming my self worth by making choices that are in alignment with growing young while I age. Fortunately I’ve had many amazing young at heart role models in my life. Friends, teachers, and especially my amazing almost 70 year old husband, (known affectionately as El Toro by his Mexican cycling bothers), who can out do me in just about any sport, even though he’s 17 years older than me.
So what do I mean when I promote Agelessness?
What I mean is that we don’t have to let a number determine limitations and the types of activities we take part in. We can maintain an attitude of dynamic aliveness in our everyday living that defies the common beliefs about aging.
My definition of aging is
“less fun and freedom in your body sooner rather than later”.
We do have the power to accelerate or decelerate aging, and that’s what I’m excited to make conscious empowered choices about each and every day.
Use it or lose it
A more sedentary life promotes stagnation in all the body’s systems.
Food can corrode or nourish, age or energize.
Cleansing’s healing effect on the digestive system and release of toxins can slow down aging.
