Growing older: cause for celebration or discontent?
Some people are content growing older, others hate it. What's your view?
I believe that life is what you make it. It is the quality that one lives, the things that one does to accomplish, what success means to every person is an individualistic experience. I believe that the ones who raise us, our parents or other guardians will shape our lives for us, and when we become adults we have choice to make on what to do with that earliest influence. And how we live out our choices will have an influence on our later years.
Discontent comes from within. If we have healthy self-love then we will appreciate our accomplishments and our attitude will reflect how we feel about our future's out come. Only discontent, only negative comes from experience that is without love, without forgiveness and without a spiritual connection; success is what we put into our lives, and how we receive from life itself. So celebration of life each day comes from being Grateful to our Creator, and acceptance of life's changes, no matter what happens next.
Thanks for your very thoughful response CMCastro, and for coming by!
