Bona Fide!

 

Hi there!

 

They all met in their usual bar for an evening out,
and a good private chat about their issues of interest.
What are your experiences of being  middle aged  
now? Emi asked.

It’s a bit of a challenge to feel very positive and 
maintain my beauty, when I see my ageing face and
body in
the mirror every morning Ele replied.

I find it somewhat demanding to keep so much
active or to think so quickly as before;
sometimes I prefer to take it more
slowly in
general  Mar said.

For me it seems to be the emotional  side that is
more difficult to handle;   many times I caught myself
not feeling so happy as I used to previously Cat said.

I understand all these issues you mention, because
I feel similarly at times.
But I must say that, I personally see a huge benefit
being at this age now.
I do feel completely free to be myself Emi said and
smiled.
And she did mean it, absolutely.

Life can be ambitious and overwhelming when you
are going through the middle age years;
that is
between the ages of forty five ( 45 ) and sixty
five ( 65 )
years old.

Some people fight this, while some individuals deny
it altogether.
A number of people get depressed, and some others
become completely confused and puzzled.

But at the same time for many people, this period
can be a very powerful, satisfying, successful and
rewarding
stage in their life.

In order to feel really positive about your middle
age years, you need to practise the one and most
important thing for you    and this is Self Love.

This is the time when you need to examine carefully
what direction your life is taking, and work towards
this target.
Life is all about moving forward, and experience
whatever is coming your way.

Here are a number of benefits you enjoy at this
twenty ( 20 ) year stage of your life:

a)     You feel you have collected valuable experience
and knowledge during the previous years;
and as a result, you can now develop and improve
your life as necessary.

b)     You know that each and every day offers you
a new opportunity to love and be loved.

c)     You recognise that life is too short;
so you try to enjoy every moment, follow your
passions, and you are really grateful for your
total existence.

d)     You realise that you deserve to live in peace
and harmony;
consequently, you do not allow other people  to
destroy your well-being and happiness.

e)     You are not afraid to be yourself, and support
your beliefs and the things that are important
to you.   

f)     You still feel you possess the female sex appeal,
to attract other people to you.

g)     You acknowledge and value highly your own
worth and qualities;
you do not rely on your external appearance any
more as when you were younger, and you do
like yourself for that.

Common Sense

 

The fundamental thing to consider here is the
actual freedom you have from now on, like:

1)     Not having to try hard to succeed in your
profession any more.
2)     Not having to try and please anybody
apart from yourself.
3)     Not having to feel guilty about any personal
or professional issues.
4)     Not having to compete for anything in your
life any more.
5)     Not having to feel stressed and anxious
about missing deadlines.


Believe that now you are at the heyday of your

strength, patience and understanding.

You are free to express yourself as you feel.
You are free to accept your appearance as it is.
You are free to accept your whole life.
You are free to just be.

Growing old is your biggest advantage and benefit,
because not everybody does.

Honour and celebrate your age.

You are here  —  Now !

Sleep is as important to our well being,
as nutrition
and exercise.

During sleeping the body repairs itself, so that
we can be
 in top condition when we wake
up next morning.

Many people try to sleep as little as
possible, so not
to waste time;
while others have great difficulty 
falling asleep,
or staying asleep, or both.

We all need to sleep a specific number
of hours to
be able to meet next day’s
challenges.

Some people are able to function very
well after five (5) or six (6) 
hours of sleep.
Others need between seven (7) and nine (9)
hours of sleep.
It all depends on the individual’s genetic
inheritance.

Basically, if you are capable to perform
all your
duties next day without feeling
sluggish and sleepy,
then most likely you
sleep all the hours your body

needs at night.

Standard Procedure

 

a)    Sleep in a slightly cool bedroom,
in order to match your
body’s temperature
during the night.

b)    Expose yourself to sunlight during
the day;    because this will help to 
regulate
sleep patterns properly.

c)    Avoid alcohol and caffeine twelve
hours
before going to bed, because they
are stimulants, and will keep you awake.

d)    Go to bed and wake up at the same
time all seven
days of the week, in order to
strengthen your body’s
sleep-wake
cycle.

e)    Keep your hands and feet warm,
and your head cool
to help falling asleep.

f)    Keep your bedroom dark and quiet,
and remove all
electronic devices.

g)    Keep active during the day.

h)    Drink a cup of strong chamomile tea
with a spoon of honey.

i)     Eat foods containing Vitamins B or
take a supplement during the day.

j)    Eat foods containing Tryptophan, like
poultry, red meat, shellfish, fish, eggs.

k)     Burn Lavender essential oil or put
some drops in your pillow at night.

When you go to bed at night, do the
following
things to make you feel
happy:

1)    Surrender:   

Let go of all that happened during the day,
either good or bad.
Breathe
deeply to relax tensions, and
feel peaceful and pleased.

2)    Welcome:

of your day.

Hi there!

 

It was a sunny morning so I decided to go for a walk.
I chose to go to my nearest
garden centre because
not only it is complete
with various plants but also
it has a fantastic
garden, where I enjoy walking for
as long
as I want.

While walking through the various plant stands I started
noticing the colourful reflections of
the sun light through
the trees and the many
flowers;
“what an amazing view”, I thought.
 

I kept on walking when my attention went to a small
flowering plant growing through
the cracks of a wall.
I bent down to touch
and smell;
“very sweet smell – it gives me
such a relaxing feeling!”, I thought.

Then I noticed how many insects were flying from flower to
flower buzzing and sucking
the sweet juices out of these
wonderful buds.

I kept on walking and suddenly I started realising that
I really was a part of all these
beautiful things happening
around me
at that moment.

It was then when I decided to just live in the moment.
I was only there — and
nothing else existed before or after.

I was totally absorbed…. !!

The morning is the infrastructure our whole day is built upon.
So it is absolutely
vital to adopt powerful habits to give not only our
day but also our life purpose.

Only by doing this we will feel happy, contented, peaceful, strong,
energetic
and really healthy.

 Adjust your mindset to the right direction and have an attitude
of acceptance
and anticipation.  Be prepared for good things to come.

La Pregunta!

 

Hola!

 

The telephone rang breaking the silence in the quiet office.
“Hello” he answered quickly. 

“Hi Bo, how are things there?”, the male voice on
the line asked.
“Everything’s alright;  very busy at the moment”,
Bo replied.

“I called to ask you to join me on my trip to Paris,
as you know,
next month” he said.

“Thanks, I’ll think about it and call you back” Bo replied.
Immediately he started thinking how he could
manage to go on this
very exciting trip with his friend.

Not very easy, considering his many financial
obligations.
He thought “How can I afford this trip?”.
Being a positive person he instantly decided to find
creative ways to be
able to afford it.
