I have been making some observations around…and have come to the conclusion…I do not want to be reminded constantly of where my destination is. I totally refuse to mentally and in my attitude to get old.
I hope my lovely daughter will watch out for me and will keep me in check whenever I start to get too comfortable with clothes that have neon signs on them that totally date me. Even my furniture. Some things need to be checked out of the house. Need to make sure that my environment is a reflection of how active, challenging and risk taker my mind is. Mind over matter. It has worked for me so far. Need to continue to work on this for as long as I am an inhabitant of this planet.
It can be very sad to watch some people who have reached that stage. Then, on the other hand, remember the 90 something lady, wearing skinny jeans. That’s what I hope for myself. Life is like a laboratory. Experiments are going on all the time. We are the little rodents that others are observing and experimenting with. I will do my best to be the coolest rodent chick around.
This is not meant to be a sad posting, au contraire, it is an alarm, that whatever your age is, need to be alert to keep your mind and body challenged to be its very best. It is a lot of work, but then…we’re worth it.
Touching now on something extremely important. Thousands of people are starving to death right now in Kenya. Please check the website of Doctors without Borders. Let’s remember the power of one.
I am wishing you a very meaningful weekend. I will be back on Monday.
So it was today…28 July, 2011, a day of contemplation and motivation to be the best I can be. Very cool.
Your Happy Contessa
