Did you know that last Friday was Ageism Awareness Day?  I posted a picture of myself on my instagram page and said I was 63, but in my mind I'm 45 and holding.  It got me thinking....why are people of the same age sometimes so different?  Did you ever meet someone that you thought was so much older than you only to find out you're the same age?  Or the opposite, someone you find out is your age that you thought was much younger than you?  Let's say neither has any health issues, so what's the difference?  

Well, it can be a lot of factors, self care, diet, exercise, how you manage trauma and stress, (I'm an expert on that 🙄).  I think the most important thing is your state of mind.  How old you think you are, and how old you really feel.  There's now scientific evidence that backs up the fact that people who don't see themselves as old don't act old.  It's not about our chronological age, it's about our thoughts, so what's going on in your head?  How do you talk to yourself?  Do you say things like "I'm too old for that" or "it's too late for me to try something new".  Do you focus on aliments that you think are coming with age that you don't even have yet!?  

Ageless living doesn't mean you can make time stand still, it means that when you live life to the fullest, you realize that age really is just a number.  When it's all in your head, make sure you know what's going on in there!  In the words of Mark Twain ~ Age is an issue of mind over matter.  If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.
