A sunflower in its prime before its passage
to its next beautiful stage of life
I know very little about this stage of life I enter. Somehow I thought I would be exempt, that these physiological changes would not happen to me. Guess what? It is time for me to come off my comfy, puffy, pillowy cloud of denial. The time is now to stop resisting, holding on so tight, and to begin to let go and accept what is happening. I can do whatever is in my power to retard the aging process, have fun, and keep my body in motion. As for my mind and emotional self, it is time to be even more rooted in who I am, develop those qualities that matter most to me -- past, present, and future -- and practice being more kind, compassionate, and self-accepting. Life is a process, a fact that makes more sense as I get older.
How do you welcome change in your life?
