What are you thinking about as you enter the senior years of life? Are you thinking about the life you led? Do you feel that you worked so hard over the years that it’s time to stop and rest? There is an inherent danger for seniors who choose to stop moving. They are sending all the wrong signals to their body.
They are telling their bodies to slow down, as there is nothing left to do. Your body will oblige and begin to shut down. It has been proven with profound clarity that seniors on the move on a regular basis are more likely to thrive for many more years.
It’s time to live your life with pizzazz. Pizzazz is described as an allure, appeal, attractiveness, charisma, charm, glamour, and oomph. Yes, you can have allure and charisma regardless of your age. Don’t go quietly into the night of old age. Follow the luminous path of new discovery and long-lost dreams.
THE GLORY DAYS OF YOUTH
Maybe you think back to the glory days of your youth. Life was exciting and everything was new. You were like a sponge soaking up knowledge. Almost always, you felt you were invincible. Your parents were old, but not you. Then something happened and it happened fast. Your life flashed by in a heartbeat and before you knew it, you became a senior.
As you made your way through life, you discovered there were many choices to be made. Perhaps you often ponder the decisions you made. There are very few people in the world with no regrets.
Chances are if you had the opportunity you would go back and make better choices. Of course, that’s not possible. It may be impossible to travel back in time and change the past, but the future is yours to mold like soft, warm clay.
WAS YOUR CHOSEN CAREER PATH ALL YOU HOPED IT WOULD BE?
Did you do what you wanted with your life? Maybe you took the safer route. Just maybe you had a passion that you wished you had pursued, but you let it slip away. There is a very good chance you spent your entire adult life at a job you didn’t particularly like.
Perhaps, your true passion was just too risky and the challenge too great. You chose the smooth, paved highway, instead of the rocky road less traveled. Ultimately, you spent most of your working life doing a job you really didn’t like.
It was a secure job. The longer you worked the more money you made and the more yearly holidays you were able to enjoy. You perhaps convinced yourself that life was good, while all the time feeling that something was missing.
OPPORTUNITIES LOST-THERE WERE MANY
Maybe you have no regrets, but you would be an exception. Very few of us get the opportunity to live life exactly the way we wanted. There were other responsibilities like family to consider. We didn’t want to be selfish.
Most people wish they had been a little selfish and pursued their true passion in life. Or perhaps they regret not having taken better care of themselves physically. It’s never to late to become a healthier, fitter version of yourself.
It’s not possible to alter what happened yesterday, but tomorrow is another day. It’s never too late for a new beginning. Embrace tomorrow as the first day of the rest of your life. It’s an opportunity to find out who you really are and what you are capable of on so many levels.
Go out and seek your better self. Search out those dreams you let fall by the wayside. Commit to staying sharp mentally and physically and you will set the stage for a new beginning.
IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO REACH FOR THE STARS
There is no reason why your senior years have to be an indicator that it’s time to stop moving. On the contrary, it can be a new beginning for you. It can be a new beginning physically, mentally, and emotionally.
It’s not too late to do the things that at one time seemed out of reach. Maybe you should go out and learn a new language. There is always something new to learn by going back to school. Maybe you’ll learn how to dance, volunteer to help others in need, live the dream of having your own business, or perhaps write a book.
Believe in yourself. You are capable of so much more than you might think. You’ll simply be amazed at how quickly your body will respond to your efforts to embrace a healthier and more fulfilling lifestyle.
ALWAYS DREAM BIG-YOUR BEST YEARS ARE AHEAD OF YOU
As you enter into your senior years, you are not necessarily nearing the end of your existence. Dream big, and you might well be at the very beginning of the best years of your life.
Regardless of the errors and missed opportunities of the past, you have the option to wake up any given morning and commit to living the rest of your life regret-free.
Keep moving, always moving. Never stop challenging yourself on all levels. Continue to stay mentally and physically sharp. Find your passion and embrace it. Join the growing army of seniors on the move and you will never regret it.
In the name of all that’s holy, live your life with passion and pizzazz.
I will leave you with a link to my book. I believe I was more than qualified to write it and to pass it on to other seniors. I hope you take the opportunity to read it and be encouraged by it.
