In Others’ Words: Wrinkles
Yes, I notice them when I look in the mirror. I don’t care for them, but I don’t post whiny comments on Facebook or lament about them in my journal because, well, what am I going to do? Botox?
I don’t think so.
When I look in the mirror I see me — not my age. But the reality is, I’m staring at an older me. I don’t need to magnify the wrinkles near my eyes — let’s call them laugh lines, shall we? — to convince myself that I’ve aged. All I have to do is look at my children. Really — when did these kids grow up?
Okay — changing topics now because I wasn’t thinking about my age after I read today’s quote. No, I was thinking about the effects of quitting … how quitting damages your soul just like the sun damages your skin.
Quitting ages you.
And I don’t want to grow old before my time. I’m believing the saying, “It’s always too early to quit.” I want to be known as a dream-chaser for years and years to come. I want to be a young soul in a getting older body.
In Your Words: How’s your soul look today? When was the last time you had the choice between quitting (soul-wrinkles) and persevering? What kept you going?
