I am tingling with anticipation about being born
For a long time I have focused on stories about people finding success in later life. I especially focus on this when I am struggling, feeling like giving up or angry at myself for not achieving certain things after all these years and thankfully I hardly do any of the latter more and more infrequently.
Tonight I was happy to see a magazine program having a section on people who had found success later in life.
Sea Sick Steve was on the program and he said he was actually happy that he didn’t find success until later life. Steve in now 66.
There was also a lady who had a dream about buying Caribbean baby food and the dream was still with her on waking and realised that she couldn’t buy Caribbean baby food so started a business and another lady who as a child ran home in joy to tell her mother a joke she had learned. Her mother told that she shouldn’t use those words and so closed her mind to her dream of telling jokes however now at 77 she is a stand up comedian.
The other day and almost every day since I have listened to a Louise Hay audio version of ‘I Can Do It’.
The first time I heard it something made me go whoa !! Louise suggested that on the eve of your 49th birthday see it as an infancy to a new life.
In just over a month it’s my birthdate. Read that again.
I said birthdate not birthday because in just over a month I am 49 so I am about to be born (again).
My body might not be as slim as I wish and when I look at my face in a magnifying mirror first thing in the morning I may sometimes withdraw rather rapidly and go “Whoa easy Tiger” as I see some of the lines around my eyes but I do not partake in the self talk that some people around me engage in (that are often younger than me) about feeling old or I can’t do A, B or C now that I am this old. Or since I turned 30,40 etc …..
My body doesn’t feel any different now than it has ever done.
Next week I do plan to start trying to eliminate sugar from my diet after reading Amelia Freer’s book ‘Eat, Nourish, Glow’ and Bruce Lipton’s blog and the effects it has on our body and the proven effects on improving your diet has on your gene’s and I want to find time to do more Yoga again but this to me is just common sense and not an obsession of ‘Oh I am getting older’ …
Because as I said I am about to be reborn but in fact we get the chance to be reborn everyday …… when we wake up.
Everyday is an opportunity to start again. Change your thoughts, break old negative non productive belief patterns, decide to be happy instead of sad, forgive someone, love more. The list is endless and joyous.
I am so excited right now.
What are you going to wake excited about tomorrow?
What are you going to be reborn about today?
Have a fabulous weekend.
