That number-60!-used to freak me out a bit, but now-I'm in a place in my head now that's OK with it.
Maybe it's meditation, maybe it's California, maybe it's just accepting that what is, is-I'm not sure what has settled my brain into that "I'm fine with this" zone, but, so be it.
My focus at first was on a bucket-list type of muse that I could check off weekly, having gone/seen/done/made/whatever.
Then I read an article about how those sort of lists are very egocentric, and almost never include items like "make a difference in someone life..." and that sort of thing.
This idea forced me to really think harder about the impact my life may have upon others-so in true Gemini fashion I figured a hybrid of those two lists would be apropos for my venture into my sixth decade.
I like using a list-I always have-so it may be harder to quantify some ideas via a list but still I'll write down whatever I've accomplished after the fact.
A weekly focus in six areas will work best for me-
- Helping others
- Healthy living
In my head I'm 25ish, and I believe that that's what should count-not the number of times I've hurtled around the sun via the Earth. By focusing on my achievements instead of my looming age uptick, I am pretty sure that sixty will be a wondrous thing. Wish me luck!
