Mind over matter


Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.

∼ Mark Twain

Another Three Day Quote Challenge has come my way—this time, from Kim Russell of Writing in North Norfolk.  If you haven’t yet read her exceptional poems and other writing, you might want to visit her blog.  Thank you Kim for providing me with an occasion for sharing a series of quotes on aging that I  was saving in anticipation of my milestone birthday last month.

I have entered a new decade and I do agree with Mark Twain, it ultimately ‘doesn’t matter’.  Yet matter does enter the picture and sadly, for some of us more than others. Aging is uneven.   I have realized that part of the ‘game’ is recognizing and accepting deterioration and  limitations—and living with them.  The other part is using both mind and matter as much as possible—that’s living after all!

My challenge nominees, should you be so inclined, are:

Mis Lucja

Grammy Writes

The Journey of my Left Foot

Rules of the challenge:

  1. Post three quotes over three days.
  2. Name three nominees each day (no repetition).
  3. Thank the person who nominated you.
  4. Inform the nominees.
