YOUR LIFE A-Z:YOUTH
It is a common saying that, “Youth has its privileges.” What does that mean to you? When you were young immortality was not just a concept, immortality was the reality in how most of you lived your life. Death was not your constant advisor. As a result you took more risk, had more adventure, and enjoyed the push of adrenaline. As age creeps upon on you, you come to understand that immortality is a myth and that mortality lurks around the corner. However, to live captive to the taskmaster of mortality is not fun. Allow yourself some of YOUTH’S flexibility and spontaneity. All is not over until the fat lady sings and if she is not singing let the presence of YOUTH sweep you under its hypnotic trance and dance you off into the sunset. Ask yourself this question, “What have I stopped doing in my life that I really want to do?” Do you not do it because you think you are too old or because you are afraid? Wrestle with the reality of your thoughts? What makes you belief you are too old? Are those beliefs valid or are those beliefs fear based? Are you afraid to take the risk? If so, what do you need to do to overcome your fear, in order to let the adventure of YOUTH have its way with you. Living in fear is a prison system. Letting your inner YOUTH help you escape your self-imposed prison system is vital. Make friends with your inner-YOUTH today and start living your life as if you mean it. There is plenty of time to get old. You do not need to start today.
