I asked one of my friends who has crossed 70 and is heading to 80-years of age what sort of changes he is feeling in himself? He sent me the following very interesting lines, which I would like to share with you.
1 After loving my parents, my siblings, my spouse, my children, my friends, now I have started loving myself.
2 I just realised that I am not Atlas. The world does not rest on my shoulders.
3 I now stopped haggling with vegetables and fruits vendors. A few pennies more is not going to burn a hole in my pocket but it might help the poor fellow pay better for his family or health needs.
4 I pay my waitress a big tip. The extra money might bring a smile to her face. She is working much harder and for longer hours for a living than me
5 I stopped telling the elderly that they’ve already told that story many times. The story is for them not for me. The story makes them walk down the memory lane and relive the past.
6 I have learned not to correct people even when I know they are wrong. The onus of making everyone perfect is not on me. Peace is more precious than perfection.
7 I give compliments freely and generously. Compliments are a mood enhancer not only for the recipient but also for me.
8 I have learned not to bother about a crease or a spot on my shirt. Personality speaks louder than appearances.
9 I walk away from people who don’t value me. They might not know my worth, but I do.
10 I remain cool when someone plays dirty to outrun me in the rat race. I am not a rat and neither am I in any race.
11 I am learning not to be embarrassed by my emotions. It’s my emotions that make me human.
12 I have learned that it’s better to drop the ego than to break a relationship. My ego will keep me aloof, whereas with relationships I will never be alone.
13 I have learned to live each day as if it’s the last because one day it will be my last.
14 I am doing what makes me happy. I am responsible for my happiness, and I owe it to myself. Happiness is a choice. You can be happy at any time, just choose to be.
I decided to send this to all my friends. Why do we have to wait to be 70 or 80, why can’t we practice this at any stage and age? (author unknown).
