Have you ever pictured yourself at 100 years old ? How would it be ? How would you be ? How would you look and see yourself in the mirror … Difficult thought to grasp while still in your early thirties, but this morning as I was feeling overwhelmed with the rush of life, with the idea of “ making it “ in this world, I took a deep breath and wondered: What if I was 100 years old today ? What if ? What if I’m sitting in front of this tall bedroom mirror shriveled up by old age, brushing my white hair… what would I say to my restless young self who is constantly “ rushing to get somewhere “ ?!
A moment of stillness so deep i could hear my own heart beat, forced me to slow down. And for that brief moment I felt completely connected with the essence of life within me, and these are the some of the whispers…,
” Whispers From my 100 Years Old Self ”
Slow down child, don’t rush, be a beginner, it will all be okay at the end.
Be present in this moment, this moment is your life.
There is no somewhere, only Here.
Make breakfast. Drink tea. Then make your bed. Fluff all the pillows.
Swim naked in the rain in the warm teal waters of Kauai. Make him do it too.
Kiss in the moonlight under the intoxicating spring orange blossoms.
Make love on fresh linens dried in the warm winds of summer.
Take chances, don’t be afraid to make mistakes, everyone makes mistakes.
Forgive others and Forgive yourself. Let go of everything and everyone that doesn’t serve you, you are responsible for your destiny.
Most important of all: Know Your Worth Child ! Know Your Worth !
Love, Love with everything that you are. Love like today is your last day. Love transcends time and Universes, It’s what you get to take beyond Eternity.
Love your man. Love your family. Love your dogs. Love Who You are. Love What You do. Love yourself. Love your life.
Grow more tomatoes. Braid flowers in your hair. Travel to far away lands.
Stroll barefoot on hidden moonlit moss-covered paths.
Watch the sunrise through the ocean.
Read more. Ask questions. Have a smart mouth and quick wit.
Imagine fantastical beauty, for your thoughts will become your life.
Get quiet. Be still, so you can hear the whispers of God within you.
Slow down child, don’t rush, be a beginner, it will all be okay at the end. There is no somewhere, only Here, only Now, only Love.
Imagine you are 100 years old! What would you say to your present self ? “ xo’s
