I haven’t done an award post in years due to lack of time.  I don’t really understand them.  I do love getting recognition and love when a fellow blogger things of me but still I am not sure I get the idea of the awards.  There are nominations going around, but does anyone ever win?  Or are the nominations in itself the award?

It just seems too easy and it seems just like an award for just participating – just having a blog.  Yes, I am one of those that disagree with participation awards, medals and trophies.  Participating is its own reward, but to get an award you need to work hard, excel and come in first, second or third place and not just show up.

I do love to be remembered by my fellow bloggers.  I also love reading the answers to some of those awards and getting to know more about the bloggers.

But I digress, this is not what this post is about.  Today I am doing a tag post called 321 Quote Me.  It is great because it is fast and it involves quotes.  I love quotes!

There are 3 simple rules and here they are:

  1. Thank Who Nominated You

2. Post 2 Quotes for the dedicated Topic of The Day – the topic is Ageing

3. Select 3 bloggers to take part in the 3-2-1 Quote Me

1- Thank you Rory! Rory is from  A Guy Called Bloke and K9 Doodlepip  ( https://aguycalledbloke.blog/).  It is great to get to know you!

2- Quote #1:
“Age has no reality except in the physical world. The essence of a human being is resistant to the passage of time. Our inner lives are eternal, which is to say that our spirits remain as youthful and vigorous as when we were in full bloom. Think of love as a state of grace, not the means to anything, but the alpha and omega. An end in itself.” ― Gabriel García Márquez,

Quote #2:
“It’s very simple. As you grow, you learn more. If you stayed at twenty-two, you’d always be as ignorant as you were at twenty-two. Aging is not just decay, you know. It’s growth. It’s more than the negative that you’re going to die, it’s also the positive that you understand you’re going to die, and that you live a better life because of it.” ― Mitch Albom

3 – And here is where I will break one of the rules. It is impossible for me to choose only 3 people to tag.  I am opening this up to any of my readers that can relate to the topic of Ageing and that enjoy quotes.  Please accept this tag and run with it.


And on the topic of ageing I will add:
Getting old is a double edged sword. You are blossoming into yourself and you realize that time may be running out.  There is urgency, but there is also the calmness of acceptance.

I hope you come to love and accept your body even with its share of wear and tear.

I hope you embrace your mind, even if not as sharp, but so ever wise and inquisitive.

I hope you nourish your soul with good energy from people, from books, from prayer.

Just love yourself not matter what age your driver’s license show, no matter what number the scale displays and no matter how big your bank account is.

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” – Lao Tzu
