I Am approaching 50, well in less than two years and several people I know have recently passed this milestone and what I have noticed is their conversation content.
One is constantly referring to limitations they believe they have and always contribute it to ‘Well you know I am 50 now’
Another is consciously looking on the internet for a bungalow as we call it in England which means the proverbially one storey house for ‘in your old age accommodation when you can’t manage the stairs’ and I have actually heard them say this is why they are looking and say ‘Well you got to start thinking about these things’.
I listen to their conversations. Their subconscious speak and It’s like they are all winding down or as the excellent sitcom we used to have in the UK was titled. They have one foot in the grave.
I have read self-help books etc since the late 90’s but it wasn’t until I read The Secret in 2010 that I realised I never put any of it into practice.
Since then I have digested every piece of material I can get my hands on and make daily rituals to enhance my life and change my ‘Biology’ (Bruce Lipton) styley.
I aim to focus on what I do what as much as possible instead of what I don’t want, to bring it ever closure to me and I am daily grateful for the smallest thing to the biggest thing.
I have a goal list but I don’t obsess about it because the how it comes to me is none of my business. I just keep the Faith and try following any guidance, gut feelings etc I get.
And talking of which, one thing I know I placed on a list and I visualise doing is to stay in 4 star plus accommodation and this weekend out of nowhere my partner suggested taking a city break. I researched some hotels and found a stunning 4 star Hotel cheaper than most of the lower end chains we usually use.
When we booked, it had the option to upgrade on check in if a better room was available. My partner said what the hell click on it. I wasn’t registering what I was doing or what was happening at the time. When we checked in they said they could see we have opted for the optional upgrade for a nominal fee. We agreed and happily took our key and looked for our room number.
We paced the floor a bit puzzled because we saw the number below and the number above and above and above. We decided to back track and retrace our steps when I spotted what looked faintly like our room number on a massive arched double door which obviously we hadn’t taken in to consideration. Yes this was our door, our door to our luxury suite !!!
It wasn’t until the following morning waking up that it struck me. I Am staying in the type of accommodation I looked longingly at pictures of on the internet and I had on my list and visualised over.
Boom !! Tick another manifestation off the list.
My life is getting better and better and I have only just started.
I’m not winding down. I Am winding up Baby !!
