BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, July 4th, 2019 by Marianne Williamson in THE GIFT OF CHANGE

“It’s important to give up yesteryear when yesteryear is gone. I remember complaining to my best friend that when I lecture, I’m not as fast as I once was, not as snap-crackle-and-pop in my delivery. His response was helpful: that many in my audience aren’t as fast now either, that they too are no longer as snap-crackle-and-pop, and it would seem disingenuous if I tried to be. Age slows us down, but it takes us deeper, into realms no less fertile, spiritually, than those we inhabited before. As the years go by, we lose some of the outer sparkle that so gloriously infused our youth – but an inner sparkle emerges that we never before had. Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, “As I age, my beauty steals inward.”
