Aging is a process not a prison sentence

Aging is a process that changes with the time and your reaction to it.  Prison is a sentence that ends at fixed period of time.  It requires and demands no reaction.

So how are you living your life?  Are working your way through the process and adjusting it where necessary?  Or are living out your life sentence with no thought to the future or then end.

Living takes work in either case, would it be better to work on yourself than to have others work on you.  To be sure that can happen no matter what your situation, but the harder you work on yourself the less opportunity there is for someone else to work you.


life is a process

Life is both cases has a start and an end, it is what happens in between that that makes life good and even great until the end.

Where are you in the journey?  Hopefully on the bright side of living not on the dark side of life. No matter what your age, if you recognize where you are the process you will have a better chance of enjoying the journey.

The only true path to enjoying and living the life you want lies in assuming a sense of concern and responsibility for your own future.

Be present when indulging in what life offers, it is too fleeting and easily missed when you allow distraction in.  Like any process, life requires monitoring and adjusting.  Tweaking is not a bad thing and can be a good thing if done sooner rather than later.

What helps best to slow aging – lotions, potions and notions?

Everyone is looking for some sort of miracle when it comes to slowing the aging process


lotions for staying young

So what’s your choice?  The old adage is – pick your poison, they all have their downsides.

Which to some degree is true.  If you are relying on lotions you will be disappointed in the long run.  No matter how expensive the effects are short lived.

If your choice is potions, which is a liquid with healing, magical, or poisonous properties, once again you would find the results lacking or even downright dangerous.

Who knows what’s in this bottle?

Notions are another thing, they don’t have to put them on or into the body.  They do however have to be held in your mind as a concept or belief about something.

Notions only last as long as you hold on to them, which may be longer than the lotion is held on the skin or the potions are in the body.


think about what’s really important

When it comes to any of them being poison the facts are the same.  Some lotions are toxic and can do more damage to the body than good.  Some potions can, in fact,  be poisonous and possibly kill you as they work their way through your body.

So it would appear then that notions are the best remedy for slowing the aging process.  That, of course, assumes that your notions towards the process are good ones.  If they are not and you spend more time worrying about it than living it, notions too could be hazardous to your life as a whole.

So I ask aging which is your choice or poison?

Myself I choose notions.  Why?  Because they are the only thing I can actually control.  I have no idea what some else may have put in that jar of lotion and know even less about what is in that potion bottle. And when it comes to having a less that healthy notion I can feel the result immediately and change it.  That, of course, requires you to be in touch with your own emotions.
