Why do we want to be old when we are young and young when we are old? The age-old question goes.
The best part about aging is I get better at what I love to do, I care less about what other people think, and laugh when I remember being told in my 20s not to trust anyone over 30. Now I want to tell my friends, family, colleagues, competitors, network, readers, audience and fans not to trust anyone under 30!
Let us attribute this phenomena to the orbit of the planet Saturn, 28-29 years in length, influencing what I call a maturation process, wherein we are forced to relinquish the past and embrace the future, as simply as it reads (!) We let go of the folly of youth, the serious will say, and move into the warrior phase of life, conquering our inner demons while amassing material abundance, which only blinds us to what is real, in my belief.
28-ish years later, around the age of 58, we are then faced with another push toward the balance of wholeness, only this time, we are encouraged to make the shift into a realm based on spiritual growth, which inevitably carries us through our glory years, softening us as we ripen into old age.
The older we get, the wiser we get. Life is both short and long, so the sooner we lighten up and celebrate the laugh lines instead of the worry wrinkles, the more we grow, with the grace to accept and appreciate the blessing of existence, not only materially, though spiritually as well, because "we are not human beings having a spiritual experience, we are spiritual beings having a human experience." said Teilhard De Chardin.
To a long and happy life,
