Last week, I took a break from my nuggets to share another superwoman story. This week, they are back. Again, these nuggets are based on my upcoming book, 101 Nuggets of Truth for Women who Want to Age with Dignity and Confidence.
- Let go of things, people, values that no longer serve you.
“Life is too short to cling to values that no longer serve me.” – Unknown
- Be playful.
"We don't stop playing because we grow old. We grow old because we stop playing." -George Bernard Shaw
- Learn a new skill or a hobby.
“A hobby a day keeps the doldrums away.” – Phyllis McGinley
- Keep an open mind.
“When it comes to staying young, a mind-lift beats a face-lift any day.” -Marty Bucella
- Treat each day as if it’s the best and last day of your life.
”You had better live your best and act your best and think your best today; for today is the sure preparation for tomorrow and all the other tomorrows that follow.” – Harriet Martineau
- Step outside of your comfort zone.
“Whatever you do, take one more step out of your comfort zone.” – Jackie Hudson
- Pay no attention to what others think of you or say about you.
“At twenty we worry about what others think of us; at forty we don't care about what others think of us; at sixty we discover they haven't been thinking about us at all.”
“What we do during our working hours determines what we have; what we do in our leisure hours determines who we are.” – Abigail Van Buren
- Mind your money.
“Money is one of the most important subjects of your entire life. Some of life's greatest enjoyments and most of life's greatest disappointments stem from your decisions about money. Whether you experience great peace of mind or constant anxiety will depend on getting your finances under control.” – Robert G. Allen
- Be mindful of everything.
“Mindfulness isn't difficult; we just need to remember to do it.” –Sharon Salzberg
If you have some nuggets (or comments) or quotes you would like to share, I welcome them. As always, I am open and receptive to anything you have to say. And, I am still looking for women who are aging gracefully (with dignity and confidence). Let me hear from you.
