what are you going to do today ?

I’m going out somewhere to “play”. An adventure. Not sure where yet.

But I’m going to press a button in my mind. Flick a switch.

i am aware of SLB ( Self Limiting Buttons )

The switch is called active energy.

You should do it too! It’s a cool habit and the reason you should do it?

What do you think?

The thing is, I won’t be going out with an Ariana Grande T-shirt on.

I won’t be donning my skinny jeans… putting a baseball cap on backwards… or using teenage slang…

None of that palaver. For a 15 year old, it might be totally authentic. For me it would all feel fake.

But being young. Feeling a youthful sense of wonder and possibilities flowing through me.

That is REAL.

And with that power and magic, I know I can out-youth anyone.

I can put many of them to shame with their squandering of potential and uniqueness.

So here’s the thing…

Never, ever, EVER apologies for your age.

Being 40, 50, 60, 100…. whatever. Age is only a number. Do not go on physical numbers of your body. Go on the mental spirit , always.

It’s not something to say “Sorry” about. Even to yourself. what is the point left on it. It is so ridiculous and useless. Why you have to say “sorry” .

Who cares? I’ve said it before. O.P. Nayeer wrote one of his best operas between 50 to 60. There’s a gazillion examples of this if you care to research.

The point is that if you press the youthful energy button you have youthful energy.

And your body, mind and spirit will delight and bathe in that energy.

You are an amazing being in a universe that needs you to shine and actually be YOU.

This idea could lead to some awesome adventures, experiences and breakthroughs…
