Don’t tell me our youth is running out, it’s only just begun. Look at Louise Hay. At 90 years old she has a full, exciting and prosperous life. Listening to her talk is so refreshing. She’s got the optimistic, playful attitude of a teenager.

 

What’s her secret to aging well? She has none. She has told the world everything she’s doing to stay young and it starts with her state of mind. She was a metaphysical teacher and she spent the latter part of her life teaching others how to heal from illness with the powers of their mind and a healthy holistic approach.

 

She herself over came cancer. Her daily routine involves counting her blessings, gentle fun exercises, and whole foods. She’s always giving thanks for the goodness around her. She practices self love and forgiveness. She looks forward to the futures and expects good things to happen in her life. She says that what we focus on expands, and therefore she always focuses on goodness.

 

She is in the hall of fame for her successful lifestyle, amazing health, energy, and enthusiasm for life. She’s also fashionable, beautiful and busy-very busy. She’s one of the most influential women in the world. I doubt she’s sitting around knitting.

 

My personal philosophy for aging well: Stay fashionable, playful, and kind. Louise Hay definitely has accomplished all that and she’s still going strong at age 90. I’m expecting her to break limiting beliefs barriers regarding aging.

 

She says we are always the right age for what life has to show us. All ages are good and have value.

 

I love you Louise. I’m sending you my love. Xoxo.

Life is like a bicycle. You have to keep riding it or you will fall down. And by riding it, I mean you have to keep peddling and moving to stay upright, just like in life you have to keep waking up in the morning and doing the activities of daily living. Once you stop doing that, everything in life declines. Your house becomes a mess, your relationships disintegrate, your health is no longer at it’s best, and you eventually run out of money.

 

But it doesn’t have to be that extreme. Sometimes NOT peddling your bike is more like NOT being involved in your life. NOT attending family functions, NOT going to work, or going to work and NOT attending meetings, not interacting with coworkers.

 

Happiness and success in life happens easily and naturally when we are involved. If you show up, connect with people, do what is right and good, honor your commitments then we are rewarded. We are rewarded with personal satisfaction and a sense of accomplishment. We are rewarded with a paycheck, with meaningful friendships, with improved health and with a better more optimistic outlook on life,

 

If we keep peddling and riding our bike toward our goals and vision for a good life… then success in a natural byproduct. Happiness and success in life is not effortless. You do have to put some energy into it, much like riding a bike. But happiness and success doesn’t have to be a struggle or a difficult obstacle if you go with the flow and stay on the bike trail.

 

I challenge everyone to get involved, wake up and live and be in the moment.
