The dichotomy surrounding the beauty of Autumn leaves is
they are extremely colorful,
at the height of vibrancy
before falling –
The same can be said about people who are aging.
We can be extremely colorful,
unwilling to put up with crap
(anything that we see as fake),
as we get older.
I include myself in that group of “people who are aging,”
on the downside of life.
There is just no reason to not be real,
who I am,
take me or leave me.
But back to Autumn:
The most vibrant individuals I have had the pleasure to know were older,
They lived life on their own terms
and did what they wanted
to the fullest extent possible.
I suppose after facing
many losses and agonizing setbacks,
then finally figuring out the secret to living a life of peace
one might seem quite eccentric…
It isn’t everyone who chooses to ignore the media,
the news of the day,
and say come hell or high water I will only do what is good for me.
I will not:
Accept anything that endangers my peace
or told what to do.
Always seek God’s kingdom above all.
I just wish I had figured it out sooner…
because the dichotomy surrounding the beauty of aging is
it is extremely colorful,
at the height of vibrancy,
XO Lisa ❤️
