What did you learn about becoming older? Did you learn that it means to become weaker
and weaker and finally sick? Did you learn that it will be normal to become "rounder"?
Did you learn that aches and pain are the normal signs of old age?
Did you learn that being old will be more strain than fun?
Did you learn that after 60 years you can die every minute?
When you look around you will see lots of old people being weak, sick and "round".
They have manifested their thoughts/beliefs about old age.
Do you need to do the same? I don't think so.
BUT to live something different, you have to think, feel and do something different.
First of all you need to think differently.
It is not "written in stone" that when you become older that you will become weaker, sick or fat.
Yes, your body will change: the skin will lose its firmness and will get wrinkles ... but you decide how fast and how much. And this depends on your activity, your exposure to the sun - enough to get the amount of Vitamin D your body needs, but not too much, and it depends on what you eat and drink.
Are you eating only organic food and are drinking clean water? Are you restraining yourself from sugar, wheat and red meat? Do you eat only when you are hungry? Do you have enough
movement? Are you sleeping in a dark room?
These are only some examples how you could keep yourself fit and healthy your whole life.
How young you are even in old age is the result of how you liive your life day by day.
Do you experience life as a burden, a struggle or en exciting experience? Are you joyful, calm and relaxed or more anxious, worried, angry? Do you love at least one person? Do you enjoy the company of others or is it more painful than enjoyable? Do you look for problems instead of solutions?
Do you have a negative or positive attitude towards life? Are you grateful for what you have or do you want always more? Is your aliveness important to you?
Do you learn from life and others? Do you follow your dreams and interests, or are you only occupied in becoming rich, important or famous? Do you want to live yourself or do you only want to be a good person in the eyes of others? Are you creative or only interested in surviving?
How do you treat your body? Do you care for it or do you take no notice of its needs?
Are you active for your happiness?
The older you become the more your lived life will be visible. A person who loves its own life, others, his/her body and is joyful and grateful will always be free of aches and pains and look young, even if
the outer skin has aged.
