The Days Of Our Lives, How Are You Going To Live
As I get older my focus needs a shift. Am I the child or the parent? To let you in a little of where my place in life is, I would like you to follow along and see. The Days of our lives.
Where are you?
There is no going back! No do over.
No jumping ahead. No skipping our turn.
We are undeniably where we are – mentally, physically, spiritually, in our daily lives.
We are responsible for thriving or surviving.
This is the truth about our place in LIFE. A wake Up call

Are you the one they call,
Are you there for the happy times,
Are you there for the hugs,
Are you there for the pain,
Are you there for the suffering,
Are you there when sickness comes,
Are they there when ……you are needed?
How are you going to Live
Do you know how to care for ones that you love, when all it feels like is a burden. The ones that don’t listen or even don’t want to see you around.
They are getting older, I am getting older.
Do you know what goes on behind the closed doors when others can’t watch.
No one wants to lose their youth.
What direction do you want to go….
It’s really up to you!
The truth About Our Place in Life
This is truth…… No one else is responsible for where we are right now.
No one, but YOU.
And the truth is we know it.
Getting older is not in our plans, it is not something that most of us want to think about.
“Your spirit never ages” was a quote I heard in this TED talk I was listening to.
She also talks about losing our independence and mobility. Something else we do not want to think about.
How are you going to live? “Passionately”
Be true to who you are and learn how to be free. To have time-freedom
“ I don’t carry grudges, ambition, vanity, none of the deadly sins that are not even worth the trouble. It’s great to let go” Isabel Allende
It can be very hard to show how you feel inside. Words can not always show.
You have a lot of competition with the youth.
You feel pretty,
You feel sexy,
You feel young,
……but the mirror does not help the outside seem the same.
The world is here to help us all
“people working with people to rebuild me; people working with people to re-educate me.” Charity Tillemann
Listen as she tells her story about how the world was giving up on her and how the wisdom of the aging where there to help.
When we get caught up in wondering if you are the child or the parent and have a hard time dealing with it all. Just sit back and think “How are you going to live?”
P. S. When you have life changes and think about the Day of Our Lives where do you find yourself?
I have found myself in this blogging industry. It has given me my freedom, my youth, my inspiration to know where I am and where I want to go. It doesn’t matter how old, how young, how imperfect you think you are. Life is in your hands. Make the most of it!
