Age

Standard

Age is of no importance unless you are a cheese.

Today I am cheesy  – it is an important day – my 60th Birthday.

So I collected some age related words and advice:

“Youth is happy because it has the capacity to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.”
― Franz Kafka

Today is the oldest you’ve been and the youngest you’ll ever be again.

They’re called the golden years for a reason. Getting older has its perks. For one, you’re good at using what you’ve learned. This is called crystalized intelligence, and it keeps getting better, even when you’re 65 or 70.

Older people might control their emotions better, and focus more on how to make the most of life.

You probably know that exercise and diet are important when it comes to aging well. But there is something else you control that can help you along: a positive attitude.Research shows more and more that your approach to life may be just as important in making your “golden years” your best years.

Aging: It’s in Your Mind

The Power of Optimism

It’s difficult to know what comes first — the good health or the positive attitude.

One possible answer is they build on each other: A rosy outlook may help you  exercise more and eat better. And that in turn helps you stay hopeful and happy because you feel better. You may hear that called a “virtuous circle.”

Optimism has been linked to living longer.

Things you can do include:

  •  Check yourself. If you’re having negative thoughts, pause and see whether there’s a better way to look at what’s bothering you.

  •  Seek out humor and laughter

  •  Make time for things that give you joy

  •  Find positive people and hang out with them

With this in mind,

help yourself to some cake and Champagne to celebrate with me.

Cheers!

Get dressed

Standard

Getting dressed, getting ready for the new day is routine for some

it can be exciting or meditative for others.

Once you choose your clothes

add these:

Try optimism on. It’s one size fits all.

And it’s free. Go on, it’ll look great on you!

A smile is the best makeup that a girl can wear

Sprinkle a little more love onto everything you do.

Let the light within your heart shine throughout the world.

Now you can journey through your day

with efficiency, hope and a sense of humour.

 

And don’t forget:

You are amazing! 

Everything you do right now ripples outward and affects everyone
Your posture can shine your heart or transmit anxiety
Your breath can radiate Love or muddy the room in depression
Your glance can awaken joy
Your words can inspire freedom
Your every act can open hearts and minds

Optimism – thoughts

Standard

a good morning

Optimism

According to Wikipedia optimism is :

The word is originally derived from the Latin optimum, meaning “best.” Being optimistic, in the typical sense of the word, ultimately means one expects the best possible outcome from any given situation.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Optimism is a learned habit, and it is positively contagious. Surround yourself with people who could infect you with positivity.
In turn pass your new good mood on to a friend or stranger in words and deed – let somebody have that parking space, let that person with only a few items cut in front of you at the market.
The simple act of doing something nice for others is actually a good pick-me-up all by itself.

Optimism inspires, energizes, and brings out our best. It points the mind toward possibilities and helps us think creatively past problems.
