What About You? Affirmation Challenge Day 24

I am ready to prosper beyond my expectations. I am worthy of a positive cash flow and I break the chains of every mental, spiritual, physical, emotional resistance to attracting financial growth. Jacqueline

A lot of artists/writers/bloggers feel uncomfortable and embarassed about addressing the money issue and their material needs. They think that wanting to earn more than a pittance makes them less authentic. Well, the truth is that whether you are authentic or not, we all have bills to pay and if you don’t take care of the financial side of your existence, these bills will surely give you a rude awakening.

Of course, most of us do what we do for the love of doing it, but it’s certainly okay for your passion to grow from just being a hobby to an incredible pipeline of sustainable income. Be fruitful and multiply.

I love this quote from yesterday:

DancingPalmTrees: Speaking of being fruitful today on a somewhat cloudy Caturday Saturday I spent time at the local neighborhood community garden. The Phoenix Community Garden is a lovely way to spend an hour or so. The Senior Citizens and Retirees who maintain the garden do an excellent job of growing food and flowers.
I took lots of photos which are posted on My Photography Blog Roaming Urban Gypsy. It became a 7 part series! Of course I also spent time enjoying the garden in my own backyard.
Time spent in gardens and nature is time well spent!

What About You? Affirmation Challenge Day 18

I am a miracle of life. I am born for a purpose. I am purpose-driven. My days will be long and satisfying.

As commonplace as human life may seem because we are 7 billion and counting – other living things excluded – every single one of us is a miracle of life. Every single one of us is chosen.

I love these quotes from yesterday:

DancingPalmTrees: Perfect Love drives out fear based hate. If we were truly perfected in Love immigrants and refugees families would not be ripped apart and the children placed in detention camps. Bible scriptures should never be used to justify hate, racism, bigotry or discrimination.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+John+4%3A18&version=NIV

ChattyKerry: I am an astonishingly strong woman who persists in the face of chronic illness. I am kind, loving, thoughtful and work well in a team.

Bernadette: Creativity is a wondrous gift and one that has no expiration date. Annika Perry

Ageofaquariusweb: When I count all that I have, I have more than I have not. MAYA ANGELOU

Thoughtsnlifeblog: I am a strong powerful soul. I am fearless and capable. I am peace and in peace I am strong.

JanMalique: The very centre of your heart is where life begins – the most beautiful place in Earth. Rumi

What About You? Affirmation Challenge Day 17

I am much more than I give myself credit for. I am a masterpiece of a fabulous whole. I’m a chosen treasure. Jacqueline

Many people struggle with appreciating who they are because they feel that ‘they are not good enough.’ Many find it difficult to make open affirmative declarations about themselves and as a matter of observation, a whole lot of people feel embarrassed to do so because it would be classified as being immodest and vanity. Self-love is the first form of love and keeping your sanity.

The truth is that you are short-changing yourself by not accepting in totally all that you are and meant to be. You are doing no one anyone favours by belittling yourself, but actually doing yourself a whole lot of disservice.

I love these quotes from yesterday:

Bernadette: ‘A daughter needs a dad to be the standard against which she will judge all men.’

Mandibelle16: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
― Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches

You can’t beat this quote with many, the quintessential speech of with the hope of a modern multicultural America, by Dr. King, encouraging people to rid the U.S of racism against African-Americans. Also, I think he speaks to us no w other cultlural divides and moments of discrimination and prejudice in any society or culture. Darkness and hate will only amplify these evils but love and light is a way forward through benevolence. He speaks to everyone in the twentieth and in the Twenty-first century, to overcoming racial inequality and the judgement of others. To love despite certain predispositions to spout hate.

What About You? Affirmation Challenge Day 16

I am a wellspring of possibilities. I am healthy and full of wonderful energy. I am radiant, vital and alive. My body is a friendly place to live. My mind and soul are revitalized. Jacqueline

I love This Quote From Yesterday:

Shivangi:  If things happen according to your will, it’s good. But if things do not happen according to your will, then it’s even better. Because then things will happen according to God’s will and God will always want your good. Bachchan

What About You? Affirmation Challenge Day 11

My goals may look far-fetched, but every tiny step I take each day will surely get me there. 

Creating a long checklist of unattainable to-do’s is the quickest way to making sure that the do’s don’t get done. Better to have two do’s and to get them done. Jacqueline

What About You? Affirmation Challenge Day 9

My body, mind and spirit are a healthy team and everyday I must nourish each of them that they may continue to abound in grace.

Most times we focus more on our physical attributes and health, failing to give equal if not more attention to the unseen, intangible parts of us that are the essence of who we are.Image result for quotes about healthy mind body and spirit

Bernadette: Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Though wise men at their end know dark is right, Because their words had forked no lightning they Do not go gentle into that good night.” Dylan Thomas

Putting The “Light” In “Twilight Years” – What We All Really Need In Old Age

Aging, The Beauty of Old Age, As You Get Older, Mental health

Old age, it’s one of those things that we consider to be so far ahead in time that we don’t need to worry about it. But old age creeps up on us sooner or later, whether it’s planning for retirement by starting up a pension in your 20s or 30s, or we have a moment in life that makes us realize how fallible we are. Preparing for old age is something we can all do, regardless of how are young we are, and what are the best ways to do this?

Financial Security

Not just the aforementioned pension, but if you live in places where you need to pay for your medical treatment, it is essential for you to start a pension pot as well as a medical fund pot as soon as possible. While there are many organizations that can help with regards to medical payment, such as GoMedigap, – that helps pensioners with Medicare costs – you can find out more from GoMedigap.com, but it’s your prerogative to start preparing for your twilight years in the financial sense. It’s heartbreaking to see so many people in their old age struggling to pay bills, or living without the essentials in life, and this appears to be the way of the world currently. So it’s in your best interests to start preparing for a more enjoyable later period in life.

Looking After Our Mind

It looks like there are more cases of Alzheimer’s and age-related cognitive decline than ever before. And you might have seen relatives succumb to Dementia, and how upsetting it is for the caregivers.

Looking after our brain isn’t a difficult task. The trick is, much like physical exercise, we need to be doing enough to stimulate our brain muscle so it can grow. Essentially, this is all about doing stuff that you find challenging. And while it may sound like you’re going back to school, do things that are stimulating, but stuff you enjoy.

This could be playing more computer games, as they have been shown to have a positive impact on brain development, or it could be something as simple as having a strong coffee while playing Sudoku. Caffeine has been shown to have a positive impact on the brain, and Sudoku is one of those complicated puzzles that you can do anywhere. If you’ve always wanted to learn a language or an instrument, these are options too. But we all seem to think that our brains get worse as we get older, this is not the case!

Learning About What Makes Us Happy

In old age, we can all start to feel somewhat isolated, especially as people our own age starting to pass away, and you might not feel that people aren’t listening to you anymore. It’s important for us to know what makes us happy. It’s not just beneficial to us in old age, but it’s beneficial to us in life. We can spend our whole lives not knowing what really makes us happy because we focus more on other people. Your happiness is paramount to ageing, but it’s also important to how you live your life.

And of course, making sure that you appreciate life, by getting out regularly into nature, is something simple that we can all benefit from. There’s an article on TheGuardian.com explaining more on why we need to get out into nature. Not only is it beneficial for our minds and bodies, it helps us gain a perspective on what really matters in life. This, ultimately, is what will help us keep a sense of perspective as we get older.
