what’s in an age? staying as young as you feel


How are you?

Feeling a little stretched? Feeling that the numbers you complete when asked your ‘age’ don’t quite feel right?

I’ve been thinking a bit about birthday’s lately – and why it is that we track the years, and set goals to achieve by the years that we live.

Approaching three-zero, four-zero, five-zero… these numbers can define us – but the more I ponder, the more I talk to those approaching eight-zero and nine-zero, the more I realise the number is not the destination, the number isn’t even the goal, the number simply marks time while you, the real you, sets off on a marvelous adventure called life!

And so – these are some things to do to help invigorate, help realise and help live ‘young’ – which to me simply means staying inquiring, energetic, enthusiastic and constantly in awe of all around me!

Go to a zoo… or an aquarium… get somewhere with nature that leaves you saying ‘wow’

Visit somewhere that took hundreds of thousands of years to form – and is so perfect you wouldn’t change a thing(perfect – just like you!)

Swim with a turtle on the Great Barrier Reef – the reef itself is the oldest living organism on earth, and these lazy turtles can easily reach 100 years +

See family, catch up with friends – in all their glorious imperfections, and unpolished-ness. They really are the best! (…and it doesn’t all have to be serious!)

And, if all else fails…

Go fly a kite. Really.
