We become older before we realize it, yet we can feel younger longer than we are young. 

Our sense of enthusiastic happiness with our years largely depends upon our perceptions.  If we recall our pasts with fond memories or at least acceptance; hold onto excitement about our futures; and all the while keep our focus on whatever is happening today, this will all add up to a greater sense of contentment.

Staying present, while seeking to witness and admire the good in ourselves and others. These are the things that keep hopes alive, and doing so is immensely important because what we never want to do is to allow parts of us die while we’re still alive. Instead, we must choose to remain rooted in our purpose with faith that life is unfolding as it should. This is the essence of eternally youthful energy.

Waking up is good. Better is embracing the day with the enthusiasm it deserves. This is the secret of feeling youthful enthusiasm longer. And “youthful” does not necessarily mean “young.” Grammatically, youthful = enthusiasm, which to me = ANY AGE + Excitedly Happy about a new day!   If we’re lucky, we add years to our time collection. Young is wonderful. Older is amazing, too. A spirited attitude that welcomes every day? Priceless.  Make it a great day!
