    Thoughts of negativities will only cause aging at faster rate.
    Worrying, anxieties and other negativities can only cause one to age more.
    Just like how a fruit about to ripe, forcing it to ripe faster than its normal pace can only yield uncommon effects like sourness, bitterness, wrinkled skin and eventually could rot fast than expected.
    Get it done the right way, right for the picking, in due time, in its own season and time.
    And it will be the sweetest thing it can be.

    It will be best especially for us in the prime of our years to just take it slow, relish and savor each moment and just be happy, the Almighty Lord has given us 'extensions' to experience everything. Accept, appreciate and enjoy. This is the day that the Lord has made for us. :)

    And to show you proof about senior people who practices positivism in their lives, here was a video clip from a local TV magazine show called: Kapuso mo, Jessica Sojo (translation: Yours wholeheartedly, Jessica Sojo)

    Yes, we should be enjoying the last stage of our life and it should be less stressful than when we were young and busy with families and responsibilities but easier said than done.

    Stress is a killer for sure.

    A worrywart, huh. I agree that worrying will hasten our aging and can be a source of ailments. You may all know that my mother was hit by a stroke 5 years ago. And although she is a vegetable now, she's still looking good. The doctor said that my mother has a strong "resistance to death" because her condition is quite a miracle to last for 5 years. I guess that longevity (she's 82) can be attributed to her happy-go-lucky attitude. I had never seen her worrying about anything. In fact, she's always out of the house, gallivanting or anywhere. That's her stress reliever maybe. And that's also what made her stronger in those days - she would walk and walk wherever her feet would bring her.

    I hope I can get that attitude of not worrying about anything. But that would be easier said than done. I have too many concerns for now.

    Agree with all the posts - I was very stressed for many years and it did take its toll especially healthwise
    I try to avoid stress now and distract from negative thoughts

    Let her be Corie and you're right, her walking journeys to nowhere is what makes her feel best.

    I was also bedridden after my stroke and was also in a vegetative state. But after a few sessions of physical therapy and after I regain my walking ability, I was slowly going back to what I like to do going to places all by myself. Although the doctor has warned me not to go out alone and unassisted, I have a whole heart of courage to made a plan one Sunday. I got to the church all by myself with only my cane and me. I was able to ride a local 2-seater transport we call tricycle and off I go to attend the Sunday mass all by myself. As I sat on on one of the church's bench holding my rosary, I prayed and prayed and prayed thanking God of my little achievement. Now I can go on places like the local grocer, the neighborhood store and of course, the church and even get to my doctor on checkup day once without anybody assisting me. But sure I got the scold of my life from him (my doctor) when he learned, I was there in his clinic all by myself. He was so furious and keep on telling me never to do it again! I also got the same scolding from my son, my brother and sister who were assigned as my caregivers. I've accepted its not yet time since my left foot was not that firm yet to take regular travel hazards that could lead me to a worse accident. But sure I cherish my now and then trips to the church and the local grocer to buy things I needed(which were usually kiddie stuff for my grandson lols!) To me, they were my 'little pleasures' that makes me happy. :)

    My Mom has a pace maker and she's home most of the time. She says she is so tired. She has irregular heart beats too. We pray a lot. We have found in my book The Directory of Saints by Annette Sandoval that there are Holy Saints for hearts. For heart attack sufferers Saint Teresa of Avila. Heart patients, Saint John of God. I wish your family could read your post Amie Ar, so they can understand and not scold you. But they scold you because they are afraid and love you, I believe.

    Gee, @Amie Ar, that's a lot of courage, very admirable that you were able to recover from a bad stroke. I wish you full recovery. Just last week, a former colleague was hit by a stroke and she is still in the hospital undergoing therapy. I think half her body was paralyzed but is reacting pretty good to the therapy. I am hoping that she can fully recover.

    Honestly, I am scared to think that a stroke would get me someday that's why I religiously take my maintenance medication for hypertension and I also am learning how to handle pressure in my work which is the main source of stress for me.
