Getting older is about liberation.
It’s about the non-essentials falling away, about not looking over your shoulder for approval or believing scary bullshit about the future. I have finally learned that as Montaigne put it, “there were many terrible things in my life, but most of them never happened.”
I realise now how much energy I wasted, how depleting my worries and fears have been.
.....that’s what I love about being older; knowing what is not to be feared has me feeling more myself than at any other time in my life.
Pause and poise in the centre of your revolving world; it is the best position to observe the parade of events and experiences you allow to control your life. Allow yourself the serenity of escaping to a reality that gives you the freedom, a break from all this noise. Sail away with me....
