“Words! Words! I’m so sick of words!
I get words all day through;
First from him, now from you! Is that all you blighters can do?
Don’t talk of stars burning above; If you’re in love,
Show me! Tell me no dreams
Filled with desire. If you’re on fire,
Show me! Here we are together in the middle of the night!
Don’t talk of spring! Just hold me tight!
Anyone who’s ever been in love’ll tell you that
This is no time for a chat!” ~~ “Show Me” from My Fair Lady
About a month ago, I bumped into a university friend. The last time I saw her was when we were still at university and we graduated in 1995. She said I still looked the same.
A few weeks ago, I emailed some photos I’d had taken to a friend I haven’t seen in person for many years and she told me I never age.
Do I have a secret to eternal youth that I can bottle, package and sell to everyone?
While I do believe that our thoughts and beliefs can either age or keep us looking forever young, I’m still relatively young so that proves nothing. Let’s put it this way – if I’m still looking this youthful and feeling in radiant health when I’m 80, I will know for sure that my beliefs are real. Then I will come up with an appropriate beauty secret that I can share with the masses and put beauty companies out of business. 😉
If, on the other hand, when I’m 80 I appear to be old and decrepit, I will know that my beliefs have been nothing but blowing hot air; and I will forgive myself for not walking my talk, as that is my nature, Love.
In the meantime, I am just going to just enjoy being me in every moment.
