A positive mindset is crucial to living a youthful life. Do you agree?
My 104 year old friend Lorna, shown with me in a photo taken this week when we had lunch together, couldn’t agree more!
Lorna is one of my closet friends. We met in 1992 when we moved in next door to her and her late husband Jack.
While we were together this week, we talked about just this topic. Lorna says that having a good attitude and a positive mindset is one of the keys for her to living a life she has loved and to live it youthfully.
I never knew Lorna’s age until she turned 99, five years ago. She never told anyone. She said as she was getting close to 100 years old, she figured it was now OK to tell people her age!
Along with a positive mindset and good attitude, Lorna said she’s stayed youthful by staying active. Regular exercise over the years, walking, eating healthy foods and having either a glass of wine or a vodka many evenings helped too!
Lorna goes to a regular Bible study group even now at this age and has many friends. Remember last weeks blog was about cherishing your friendships? I cherish every minute I’m with Lorna. Lorna cherishes her friends too.
The time goes by so quickly with all of our discussions we have . There never seems to be a lapse in our conversations. Lorna has become a close friend and a mentor to me of sorts.
She doesn’t really give me advice, she tells stories. Stories about herself and her life and people she has loved and lost over the last 104 years. She is definitely my role model! I plan to live to her age and to live it as youthfully as she has and still does.
Do you pay attention to whether or not you too have a positive mindset and a good attitude more moments than not?
If you believe like Lorna and I do, that it’s a must if you too would like to live your life more youthfully, than I urge you to take a look at your thoughts and attitude.
I’m 62 years old and I really think I’m much younger. At many levels I am still in my 30’s or maybe 40’s.
I know for sure my positive mindset keeps me feeling this way. If you need help with creating a more positive mindset and attitude, reach out to me.
I’m happy to have a talk with you.
