After a many years of work at an airline, I had a friend receive a beautiful golden pendant in the shape of wings. She wore it proudly on her jacket for a very long time. Then, after about three years, she retired and the wings disappeared from her garment. I asked why. She answered, “I spend my days wondering what I should do with my life, how I could make a difference in the world, and really just managing my life. All of this just makes me feel so hopeless sometimes. I don’t really I deserve the wings, anymore, I guess.”
With her permission and without mentioning her name, I asked this client if I could share her predicament, because so many seniors live with the same feelings. I have taken care of my mother for 9 years now and have watched as her motivation for each day is about what to make for dinner and when she should do the laundry. She has given up on making her life anymore than what it is already. She has given in to social consciousness that would say that after 65 we should retire, give up on life, and simply relax. I don’t know about you, but I certainly have no intention of retiring at 65. At 55, I feel as if I’m just beginning to understand who I am and how to implement my Divine Intention.
If you are a senior or approaching retirement, have a plan as you continue into the future. The worst thing we could do in life is quit creating. We are made in the order and fashioned in the image of a creator. If we stop doing what we were created to do, we will eventually wither away and die.
Conversely, I also know a woman who has successfully found her niche as a senior. When her husband died and she was forced to retire from a long-time job, all of her kids were out of school and married, she felt like she had nothing to live for. Her entire life was based on tending to everyone, which is the case for many people who lose site of dreams. She needed to edit her life’s story to become someone useful and viable again.
In her case, she heard the call and accepted the challenge to take the great step forward into a life that became exciting and wonderful again. She joined senior groups, contacted old friends in the same situation as she, she started visiting her family once a year in different parts of the world, and she made plans to continue life, not stay stagnant. Every time I see her, I’m amazed at how wonderful she looks for her age. I think she is over 80. No one, however, would guess she is even 70.
Creating your life as you go forward sometimes takes editing the next page, or rewriting a new story. Don’t be afraid to take steps into unknown areas and take chances. Life is always about moving forward and changing. Once you lose sight of that, you often lose your vision too. A quote in the bible says, “People without a vision will perish.”
But, if you move forward without fear, you may discover something wonderful that you never imagined was behind door two.
