Beautiful Thought #2: Do not ever view yourself in terms of age.
Don’t acknowledge it.
Further, do not buy into ‘that age of life’ whether teenage, young adult, senior. You are you, with your own beautiful thoughts and experiences, not a generalization. Likewise do not accept time periods such as midlife crisis or that you will have ‘aches and pains.’
It’s a wrong classification of you. Deny any suggestion of it.
It has nothing to do with you. And it won’t do anything for you. So don’t buy into it in your mind, or any conversation. You do not need to act out as a teen, be tired as a mom, need more sleep as you get older, become frail in your 80s. If you have to be part of a conversation that discusses it, you can be silent.
Stay ageless; stay age unrelated.
Value yourself on your qualities, your joy, what you have to give. Your mind, your intellect, your care of others or your job, or a hobby. Value yourself on your commitment to excellence, or your kindness.
You are not a number.
You never were
You are special.
