Again, the continuation of my Credo for Aging which is based on my upcoming book, 101 Nuggets of Truth for Women who Want to Age with Dignity and Confidence.
- Protect your skin from prolonged exposure in the sun.
“Let the sun shine.” – Henry David Thoreau
“Journaling makes me feel I've accomplished something, learned something about myself, become a better person. Journaling to me is Bliss!" – Marilyn Schott
- Protect your mind.
“When you get up in the morning, just as you clothe your body to go out to meet the elements (weather), you clothe your mind. You clothe your mind by feeding it positive talk which results in positive thoughts”. – Norman Vincent Peale
- Feed your mind as well as your body.
“To keep the body in good health is a duty... otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear. – Buddha
- Live in the present…not the past.
"Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why we call it the present." – Babatunde Olatunji
“When we connect, it doesn’t just make us feel better; it makes us do better.” – Keith Harrell
- Be positive.
”The greatest discovery of my generation is that man can alter his life simply by altering his attitude of mind.”
– William James
- Love yourself.
“I don’t like myself. I am crazy about myself.” – Mae West
“Reading gives us some place to go when we have to stay where we are.” – Mason Cooley
- Give thanks.
“If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.” – Meister Eckhardt
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 looking for women who are aging gracefully (with dignity and confidence).
