No one can control our age, it is inevitable.
“That’s the trouble with you young people. You think because you ain’t been here long, you know everything. In my life I already forgot more than you ever know.” [ Neil Gaiman ]
But this one I find it agreeable – you are only old as you feel. And old age is a state of mind.
Age is a case of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it don’t matter. [ Satchel Paige ]
Study finds that believing you are younger than you actually are is the key to a long life. Don’t instill in your mind that you will be frail when you get old. Instead, choose to be positive, thinking that enjoying life to the fullest can keep you young. To feel old is just a state of mind. And to feel good about your life should be an important aspect of healthy aging. There are a lot of smart choices to keep your body tuned up and your mind tuned in… from eating the right food, finding the best exercise, and engage in activities where you can still socialize to keep you on the move and perk up an aging brain. Choose to age well.
“It’s [old age] not a surprise, we knew it was coming – make the most of it. So you may not be as fast on your feet, and the image in your mirror may be a little disappointing, but if you are still functioning and not in pain, gratitude should be the name of the game.” [ Betty White ]
“THE BEST people are the good old wrinkled people with a sparkle in their eye, a wink when you walk by or a toothless smile saying you are doing just fine …” [ Robert Wesley Miller ]
Unconditional love is the purest form of love. It is known as affection without any limitations, or love without conditions. The need of someone else comes first without the expectation of getting anything in return.
“To be brave is to love someone unconditionally, without expecting anything in return. To just give. That takes courage, because we don’t want to fall on our faces or leave ourselves open to hurt.” [ Madonna ]
Beware of those who are bitter,
For they will never allow you
To enjoy your fruit.
Beware of those who criticize you
When you deserve some praise for an achievement,
For they secretly desire to be worshiped.
Beware of those who are needy or stingy,
For they would rather sting you
Than give you anything.
Beware of those who are always hungry.
They will feed you to the wolves
Just to get paid.
Beware of those who speak negatively
About everything and everybody.
A negative person will never say
A positive thing about you.
Beware of those who are bored
And not passionate about life.
They will bore you with reasons for not living.
Beware of those who are too focused with
Polishing and beautifying their outer shells.
They lack true substance to understand
That genuine beauty is in the heart
that resides inside.
Beware of those who step in the path of your dreams.
They only dream to have the ability
To take half your steps.
Beware of those who steer you away
From your heart’s true happiness.
It would make them happy to see you
Steer yourself next to them,
Sitting with both your hearts bitter.
Those who are critical don’t like being criticized,
And those who are insensitive have a deficiency in their senses.
Beware of those who tell you to BEWARE.
They are too aware of everything –
And live alone, scared.”
– Suzy Kassem
Miracle …. an extraordinary., amazing event manifesting the divine intervention of God.
The wonders of God is beyond description… the big sky, the cottony like clouds, the rays of the sun, the fascinating moon that we engage in our lives…
Miracles, in the sense of phenomena we cannot explain, surround us on every hand: life itself is the miracle of miracles.
A miracle is an event which creates faith. That is the purpose and nature of miracles. Frauds deceive. An event which creates faith does not deceive: therefore it is not a fraud, but a miracle.
Believe and have faith.
I wish that your life be full of miracles and blessings.
“I believe in miracles. Therefore, I am magical.”
George Bernard Shaw
This is my life…. this is me….
There isn’t any person who is perfect.
Each one has their own distinct personalities, unique traits, behavior, and peculiarities.
Our behavior, our feelings, our self-worth, our abilities, and our actions are never hinged to that of another .
Don’t live for the expectations of others. Just be yourself. Act in your own self-interest.
Find gratitude in your life.
Do what makes you happy and what makes your heart sing.
There probably will be haters and you will be criticized. But still, it’s best to live your life according to your own terms.
Be the hero of your own life.
After all, there are no manuals to read or to follow when it comes to living, loving or running your own life.
