Next year I turn 40 and for most of the time I look around at people my own age and I don’t feel that age at all. Inside me is a 25 year old who is now re-living her misspent youth.

When I was a teenager I had a hard challenging time, like most teenagers, but I did not feel I fully lived my youth. I was also quite a shy child pre-teen and did not get to enjoy the fun and play many children did as I spent most of my time hiding or playing on my own. Now, I feel I have a new lease of life and the youthfulness is emerging as I become more my true self and I am being more and more authentic daily.

‘Youthful’ shines through the eyes as highlighted in my post on R for Radiance Here. I feel sometimes our bodies can hide out youthful state, but if we begin to allow it forward, even an aging body can’t trap your inner youth.

Youthful Aging Quotes

SO What Keeps Us Youthful

Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.                                                                                                                                                                                                                        ~Samuel Ullman
