From observing my parents in their senior years, I believed that when I hit 70 I would sell my high heels, leave my box of laxatives out on the kitchen table with a glass of water ready to use and put several pillows on my sofa so I could sink down, watch reruns of Matlock & Murder She Wrote and take lots of naps.
There are a lot of limiting beliefs about aging.
For most of my life, I've been a hard, responsible worker and a professional musician and educator. Planted many dream seeds that never blossomed as I got caught up in the challenges of life. Know what I mean? Spent years suppressing and procrastinating those seeds that I came to believe were foolish and out of reach, and built up quite a wall of resistance and fear. My mom used to say "Sometimes you're better off raising crops than kids, at least you can eat them". Love 'em all, including my students, and it made me stronger & more resourceful.
Know what? Those seeds haunted me and kept trying to poke their heads through the ground begging to be watered and nurtured. I decided that when I retired, I was going to work as hard for myself as I had done for others. I kept my high heels and put my laxatives in the back of the cabinet. Through determination, research and help from a variety of sources, I changed and Bloomed!
What a joyful, amazing feeling to be living the best part of my life right now.
I want to share what I have learned with you.
