Meditation for your Monday

“Getting older is the best thing that ever happened to me. I wake up every morning rejoicing that I'm still here with the opportunity to begin again and be better.”

 Maji at 90.

I love this quote and think about it often, usually in the mornings.  After celebrating Maji's 90th birthday yesterday with my family, all my aunts, uncles, cousins and their gorgeous kids, this meaning has deepened for me.  
Wishing you a week of opportunities!

Maji is so beautiful and I'm glad y'all have continued the birthday celebrations. That quote is hopeful to me, as we're often encouraged to think of aging as something to fear. Thanks for sharing, and for your always-uplifting spirit. xoxoxoxo
