Are you Aging Yourself Needlessly?

Age is no barrier. It’s a limitation you put on your mind.
— Jackie Joyner-Kersee

If you’re the age of ALIVE please make things easy for yourself and simply LIVE. 

We have so many limited beliefs and oppressive stories about what we’re supposed to have, be doing, or not doing at any given age. I call bullshit. 

Society loves when you believe this kind of garbage:

You’re 18 and headed to college? Well, you better have your major figured out!

28 and not settled into your 'forever' career? You’re a loser and everyone else is so much further ahead of you.

35 and still not married or have kids!? Disgraceful!

Divorced at 48. Who’s going to love you at this age? 

You have always had a passion for rock climbing (art, acting, etc) but you’re 66. Whoa! What will people think! You’re too old to start that! 

Approaching 70? Better believe your health is going to hell in a hand basket. 

If you’re the age of ALIVE please, for the sake of everything sane and worth believing in, stop thinking that your number matters!

Ya know what matters? 

How you want to live this one precious life and your own very personal timetable for doing so.

Get in the habit of thinking that you’re exactly the right age for everything good and possible because you literally are. 

So, if you’re the age of alive get out and live! Move away from the ‘age matters’ clan and live without limits!

Here's a great clip from a coach I follow and respect, Marie Forlio. She talks about ten women who defy age-ism.
