My dad died at 49 and my mom died at 58. I didn’t really see them age with all white hairs and rocking a wrinkly face but looking at Bill Gates’ recent photo, it paints aging.

I used to get scared of getting old. I was afraid of having weak knees, poor eyesight, and looking really bad. Then I finally calm myself with the reassurance that instead of leaning on the fearful decline of physical stamina, I have to ensure that the person inside radiates with so much love, peace, and happiness that the outside doesn’t really matter because the inside will be so beautiful that the outside gets youthfully ravishing.

I am starting to appreciate the idea that the journey is a lot more important than the destination, because the journey takes longer, and requires more love. It is indeed a price to reach a fantastic outcome but if getting there was burdensome then it failed.

May I always have the right attitude in living life. 🙂
