It’s no secret that we are living longer now than ever before. Want to know ways to fill your years with happiness instead of dread? The gift of time can be dimmed by fear of getting old. In his book, From Age-ing to Sage-ing, Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, talks about how this extra time can be a spiritual experience if you embrace the changes that come with growing older. With decades of extra time given beyond our parenting years, we can look forward to, embrace, and love the extra experiences we can embark on. When we change our habits – we can change our lives. Starting each day with daily affirmations is a great way to fill your spirit with happiness.
