Are you aging today?
I was thinking about aging the other day. It seems to me that we want to live to be 100 years old, but none of us want to look it. We want to be 100, but look 25. So we rub lotions and potions on our wrinkles to hide them. And when we can’t hide them, we inject them with botox. And when that doesn’t work, we nip, tuck, lift, and pull.
And what about our hair and teeth? We don’t want our hair to turn white, but we can’t get our teeth white enough. So we put stuff on our hair to keep the white covered up and stuff on our teeth to bleach the brown. We want our teeth white and our hair dark.
Sure, all of our bodies age from the moment we’re born—we change—but what about our inner appearances? What kind of shape is your mind in? Do you focus on the positive experiences each day? Do you filter for the positive, only allowing those thoughts to pass through?
Today, just for today, try taking a little time out to improve your inner appearance. Pay attention to what’s most important. Celebrate the positive experiences. See how much younger you feel. Work positive. Live positive.
