30 Women in 30 Days – Day 15
Life moves at the speed of light toward eternity. Each breath takes us one step closer to our final breath.
No matter where we are on the scale of 1 to 100 in this immensity called life…20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s or 90’s…at times we will find ourselves struggling with aging.
Our bodies change, hair turns gray and we have to learn to embrace our wrinkles. That doesn’t mean we’re ready for the nursing home. It means we have a lot more living to do. We stop looking at the calendar and start celebrating everything we do in life.
Others may think we’re not as pretty as we once were but we know we’re more beautiful than ever.
“Seek ye counsel of the aged for their eyes have looked on the faces of the years and their ears have hardened to the voices of Life. Even if their counsel is displeasing to you, pay heed to them.” – Kahlil Gibran
“There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.” –Sophia Loren
This woman has wisdom in her eyes and a beautiful smile. I would be honored to know her.
