“I KNEW THAT I WOULDN’T LIKE MY LIFE AT 60 BECAUSE I DID’T LIKE MY LIFE AT 59”
Little did I know that it wasn’t about turning 60…it was about who I was being at 59 and what I believed about turning 60.
I kept envisioning this ‘little old lady’ bent over and walking with a cane. Her face told the story of the pain in her knees and she muttered to herself about how bad her life was. It occurred to me one day, that that’s the way I saw myself at 60 …an extension of all I didn’t like about myself at 59.
I FEARED THAT MY VISION OF GETTING OLD WOULD BECOME MY REALITY.
I began to think about what I missed by not being in touch with close friends as often as I once was. I thought about how I loved going to the movies and how I hardly ever went anymore because I told myself that I was ‘too busy’. I thought about how I had given up on losing that extra 30 pounds.
These kind of thoughts went on and on and it finally occurred to me, that practically everything I feared about getting ‘old’ was already present in my life, and my vision was that it would get even worse!
I was afraid that I had missed my opportunity to do the things I’d always wanted to do, say the things I’d always wanted to say and live the life I’d always wanted to live.
My limiting beliefs about aging had me living a joyless life.
I KNEW THAT I HAD TO RE-DEFINE AGING IN ORDER TO REDEFINE MY LIFE
What if I created a new vision for myself?
What if I found a way to dissolve my limiting beliefs about aging?
What if I embraced my age and celebrated the wisdom that came with it?
What if I decided that this could be the best time of of my life?
FROM AGE-ING TO SAGE-ING
I made up my mind that I would do each of those things…that I would take responsibility for changing my life instead of just feeling hopeless. I asked for help, both seen and unseen and along the way, I met women who had traveled this road before me; women who were willing to share their knowledge as I sought to create my new vision.
This is the vision I created for myself as 60 drew closer
‘As I grow older, I Look better, Feel better, Am better in all areas of my life, confident that with the help of Divine Wisdom, I can create a life that I love.’
THUS BEGAN MY TRANSFORMATION FROM AGE-ING TO SAGE-ING
Now, I ignite the hope for a new beginning in women who are standing where I once was …afraid of growing older
I help them to break out of the Cage of Age and begin to believe and experience that they can be Amazing at Any Age.
