Growing or ageing is not a yearly process, but an everyday one. Putting life into days is growing whereas putting days into life is ageing. Those days when you do not do anything productive are those days when one just ages. But how does one put life into days and keep growing? There are three needs: the physical, the mental, the emotional and the spiritual. The physical one is 'to live'; the mental - 'to learn'; the emotional - to love and be loved and the spiritual is 'to leave a legacy'.
Stop ageing and start growing.
Your need to 'live' by exercising your body everyday.
Your need to 'learn' by developing the habit of reading inspirational books. Learn a new proficiency every year.
Your need to 'love' by doing small acts and expressions of love. The expression of love is limitless.
Your need to 'leave a legacy' by contributing something positive to this planet. Plant a tree. The possibilities are endless.
