“Never let an old person sneak into your body” Wayne Dyer
“You are never too old to do anything your body will allow” – Barbara Sheer
“It’s never too late to be ‘who you might’ have been” – Mark Twain

Life is about possibility
It’s very important to have an interest, doesn’t matter what it is, just as long as it’s interesting and stimulating and/or creative for us, (it’s not about anybody else),
Keep up the curiosity, ‘Oh the places curiosity will take us and oh what we will learn and discover is anyone’s guess and this is what makes it exciting.
Movement is IMPERATIVE – do balancing exercises or juggle. It supports the left side of our brain and helps with memory. Ride a bike, stand on one leg, hula hoop, bounce from one rock to another ……. as if we were children!

Start a course, any kind of course, florist, photography, cooking, do a uni degree – anything if this is what you want to do
How flexible are you in your life right now? Can you let go of attachment? Are you willing to be wrong? Do you take yourself too seriously? Just as with our physical bodies, the more attention we place on expanding our flexibility, the more likely we are to do it.
Is vulnerability the same as weakness? We often associate vulnerability with emotions we want to avoid such as fear, shame, and uncertainty. Yet we too often lose sight of the fact that vulnerability is also the birthplace of joy, belonging, creativity, authenticity, and love.
Being honest, authentic, courageous and risking emotional exposure.
Vulnerability is the state of being open to injury, or appearing as if you are. It might be emotional, like admitting that you’re in love with someone who might only like you as a friend, or it can be literal, like the vulnerability of a soccer goal that’s unprotected by any defensive players.
It’s okay to be yourself
All we want in life it to belong
Know we are worthy
Love our self
We are deserving
Let go of perfectionism (it holds us back from living our life),
Ask yourself, ‘What would I do next time?’ Make our life different and learn from the shortcomings, challenges or things that didn’t go according to plan. They are only mistakes if we do not learn from them.
Treat Self kindly
Let self be seen
Just be grateful
We need to be able to ask for help or say ‘I made a mistake’
People connect more with those who show their weaknesses
Vulnerability is about uncertainty, risk and emotional exposure. Its about showing up and being seen
There are two kinds of change in life. The first is the unexpected kind of change that is often forced upon you by unforeseen events and circumstances. The second is planned change that you have had time to think about and prepare for. No matter what type, we just need to learn to accept and embrace it!
Wayne Dyer was ranked the 8th most spiritually influential person in the world by Mind Body Spirit Magazine and was admired and loved by millions around the world. Today we pay tribute to his life and the gifts he gave to the world.
