Recently I read an article in the Daily Om titled “Enjoying Your Age”. Basically the article speaks to how we are either running away from our age or towards a different one rather than enjoying the one we’re at. “... In our 20s, we can embrace the energy of youth and the learning process, knowing it's okay to not have all the answers. As we move through our third decade, we grow more self-assured as the confusion of our young adulthood melts away...In our 40s, we become conscious of the wisdom we have attained through life experience and are blessed with the ability to put it to good use. We are not afraid to explore unfamiliar territory or to change. In our 50s, we tend to have successfully navigated our midlife reevaluations and have prioritized our lives. In the decades beyond, we discover a greater sense of freedom than we have ever known...”
So as I am blessed to reach the 50 year milestone in my life journey, it’s time for me to reflect and embrace the moment and age. I’m actually excited to be turning 50, I mean few years ago I honestly was dreading it, but the journey to reach today has been such an awakening one, that I’m thankful for being able to enjoy this day. I’m grateful for each person, each lesson, every loss and success, for the pain and joys, because if it was not for each of them, I would not be who I am today and living my best life moments everyday. Learning to be still and grow.
Embrace where and who you are, be the best version of you in that moment.
