We're All Fighting Growing Old...

We’re all fighting growing old…..

We’re all fighting growing old….. 

In the hopes, of a few minutes more… 

Growing Older   
Let’s face it, we truly are all growing older, day by day, year by year. But does that mean we should slow down in life & let go of certain hopes and dreams?

Age is whatever you think it is. You are as old as you think you are.

You should always slow down and enjoy what you have and what is around you each day. But in life overall, you shouldn't slow down on your aspirations, hopes, dreams, goals, experiences, no matter how big or small. You need to hang on, continue to hope, pray, set bigger goals, dream grander dreams, day by day, year by year.

We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing. ~ George Bernard Shaw 

Mind, Body, & Spirit
As you get older, you may start exercising more to keep up your body, either way you may possibly find your body still slowing down. But what about your mind & spirit? Maybe it’s harder to tell, but are they slowing down too? Similarly, as you try to get up with your body by physical exercise and activities to keep in in good physical shape, a person must remember to keep up in his/her mind and spirit also. Keep all three; Mind, Body, & Spirit in shape. All are essential part of good health, not just your body. Continue to dream, pray, discover, meditate,  imagine, educate, learn, & exercise all parts of your soul... 

Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.~ Henry Ford 

Yes, you may be getting older, but you are never too old to dream, discover, and set new goals. Nothing in this life is out of reach for you, as long as you have the focus and determination to go after it. Whether it be careers, relationships, dreams, etc… everything is within your reach, but you have to be willing to go after it, reach out for it, take a risk, possibly step out of your comfort zone, only then will you attain something you’ve never experienced.

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. ~ C.S. Lewis

Never Too Late
So remember, growing older doesn’t mean giving up on your dreams or aspirations in life. It is never too late to go someplace you never been, do something you’ve never done, reach out to someone that's on your mind, achieve a new goal, pursue a new dream, take a risk, have a new experience, inspire others, make a positive impact in the world, become a better person.

Fight the Good Fight…. Yes, we’re growing older, but the way I see it, no matter how old you are, there is a lot of Life left to experience… 

You're Never Too Old to Feel Young
