We need to do things that will make us feel better about ourselves. This is so important for our emotional well-being. And then when we feel better on the inside we look better on the outside. Yes, getting a manicure and pedicure will make you feel better and look better, but I think we need to do more.
We are all put here on this earth for a reason.
"We're all called. If you're here breathing, you have a contribution to make." Oprah Winfrey says that teaching is her true calling. She has learned from the teaching she has done on the show. Oprah's best memories are when people see the light, that "aha" moment.
What we have to do as human beings is find out what we are here to do and then get to doing it! What do we love and what do we love to do. For many of us it has been raising children. But our children are just about raised. We will always be there for them! But, what about us? Now what are we going to do?
There is something out there waiting for us to conquer. What is it though? When you are getting close to finding it you will know!
"What I know for sure: There is no greater gift you can give or receive than to honor your calling. It's why you were born. And how you become most truly alive."
As ladies over fifty, I think one thing we can do for ourselves is to do for each other. There are so many ways that we can help each other. We just have to find those ways. As ladies over fifty we can also help people that are on the other side of fifty. There are no limits to what we can do!
What contribution can we make to society? At the same time what will make us feel good about ourselves?
