How Can I Be 50, When I Still Feel 25?

by Amy Sherman, LMHC




Where did the years go?  Wasn’t it just yesterday that I was considered the youngster in the crowd and everyone else was the old timers?  Somehow the years kept creeping along and now I have a 25 year old child who looks at me as an old fogey.

I tell her that age is just a number, because I don’t feel my 50+ years.  I’m still vital and forward thinking, looking to the future with excitement and passion.  I don’t plan to have that change any time soon.  In fact, Hale Dwoksin, author of The Sedona Method, states ,“The best way to embrace your age is to look inside and notice that at your core what you are is ageless. “

I have learned several things over the years which have kept me focusing on the brighter side of things.  They are the following:

1. Do not give in to your negative thoughts about aging.  Accept them as just thoughts and let them leave your mind as quickly as they came in.  When you start overthinking, you create a downcast state of mind, which just adds to your “pity-party” mindset.

2. Understand the power your emotions have on your ability to live longer and healthier.  Research supports the fact that people who are more positive have a longer life span than those who are negative. Plus, they suffer from less illnesses and chronic conditions.

3.Let go of the anticipation that things can go wrong.  Otherwise, you wind up setting yourself up for a problem to happen, when there may actually be none. So, stop worrying.

4. Try to harness your personal strength from within to overcome adversity.  This means that you do not let yourself get overwhelmed and feel victimized by your circumstances.  Instead, take control and act in a manner that would bring you the results you want.

In essence, always remember to keep growing emotionally, so that you are constantly living in a state of self-discovery and excitement.  Be prepared to go on a journey of exploration to find new aspects of yourself, you never knew existed.  You may be surprised to learn that while you may be “over the hill” chronologically, you can still live your life with the enthusiasm of your youth.

When I meet a woman whose life is clearly filled with the fruit of kindness, I see a beautiful person regardless of her outward appearance.  The kindness she shows to the world is really the Holy Spirit at work making the world a more beautiful place, showing forth the presence of God.
