Your body is will start dropping, your blood work is going to be a little different, your gums are going to hurt, your muscles may ache at the end of the day, and you’ll have pains that may come but not go.

The thing is, aging is something you can do gracefully. Aging is something you can do with beauty. Right now, I’m on vacation in beautiful East Hampton, and as I sat on the beach today looking around, I saw some people who have aged amazingly. There was a woman in her 60’s, still rocking a bathing suit and looking great. Sure, maybe her body isn’t as firm as it once was, but she is still rocking beautiful.

She’s aged gracefully. You can tell by looking at her how well she’s taken care of who she is. She’s not the kind of woman who feels paranoid about getting older. It’s the only way to age. You’re never going to be as “materially” beautiful as you were yesterday, but you’re going to be more beautiful inside. You can do a few things to keep the outside going. Keep on a good diet, lay off the alcohol, don’t get too much sun, and work out. You’re aging on the inside too, but how you embrace life will determine HOW you age. Do you still embrace life as a child, with curiosity and enthusiasm, or is life just a boring routine for you?

If you allow life to get stagnant for you mentally and emotionally, you’re going to age badly. You’re going to age like you’re falling off a cliff. As I looked around today, I saw a few people who have fallen off the cliff. I saw men and women in their 40’s, who just look bored of life. They don’t take care of themselves, and it shows. Think about how you treat yourself, and how you feel about life. Your body matches your attitude. Take care of your brain, take care of your heart, and take care of yourself. You only have one chance. You only get one body and one life.

Start looking at life as a gift, and you’ll start to age gracefully. Remember, your thoughts become your actions, and your actions become your life. Today at the beach, I saw people all around me who have aged gracefully. I could see the way they’ve embraced life, because it shows in their face. Their enthusiasm for life shows in the twinkle in their eye, and in the way their heart shines as they walk. Take care of yourself, and enjoy this amazing journey called life.

My motto every single day is not to ever leave any of life on the table. If I see someone I want to talk to, I talk to them. If I need to call someone, I call them. I live to express whatever emotion I can, because when you don’t leave life on the table, you live life to the fullest. You’re going to go to bed at night feeling satisfied and with much less stress.  It’s time you all live life to the fullest. It’s time for you to stop leaving life on the table. It’s time for all of us to support one another and to do it together. That’s it. It’s time to check out some more people on the beach, and swim in the Atlantic Ocean.
