"EMBRACING THE UNCHARTED
It is beautiful how as we journey through life, each phase presents us with unique opportunities for growth and self discovery. Yet, when it come to aging, many women over 60 may not have considered it as a time of curiosity and self exploration. You may not have reached this milestone in life, but perhaps your mother, sister, other loved one has and so you can share these little wisdom gems.
There are new perspectives, wisdom, experiences that come with the passage of time, and they are waiting to be uncovered.
Let's delve into the inspiring concept of aging with curiosity and self discovery and how embracing this mindset can lead to a fulfilling transformative journey.
Aging is often accompanied by societal expectations and stereotypes, which might overshadow the wonder of this new chapter in life.
Curiosity encourages us to ask questions, try new things and remain open to learning.
Embrace the unknown with a sense of adventure, much like embarking on a new journey or voyage into self exploration.
This can also be a time reflect on your past accomplishments, setbacks and moments of personal growth. Consider the journey you have undertaken, the strength and resilience that have guided you through life's twists and turns.
This is a time for redefining priorities. Consider what truly matters to you now and how you want to shape the years ahead.
Embrace the freedom that comes with age to pursue passions you might have set aside earlier. Self discovery around aging with curiosity also involves connecting with others who share similar experiences. Reach out to friends, join social groups, or engage in community activities that resonate with your interests.
Revisit your health and your wellbeing. Aging is not a static process, it is a dynamic journey filled with potential for growth and self realization. For women over 60, embracing this phase with curiosity and self discovery can lead to a profound transformation.
For me personally, aging is offering a unique opportunity to delve deeper into the mysteries of life and spirituality. Curiosity allowed me to explore the metaphysical questions that have intrigued me.
To explore the connections of mind, body, spirit, and the dance with the universe. To live with gratitude and purpose fully aware and awake to the blessings around me.
Consider the spiritual dimensions that infuse this phase with profound significance. Embrace this sacred journey with an open heart and a mindful spirit.
Approach each day as an opportunity to learn and explore the beauty of the years that have shaped you into the remarkable person you are today.
"As a woman gathers more years she becomes more bold, which is not the same as brave: brave is jumping in.
Bold is jumping in led by angels.
In age, we learn to know the difference for certain. Older is Bolder."
Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes
