At each stage of our lives, we change, grow, learn and life becomes new. At each stage we may find that we are not okay being ourselves. As things change we can become uncomfortable. Finding peace within changing times in our lives is about finding our “okayness” within our journey and the stage we are at.
As a child or maiden / youth we physically change in our bodies. We become taller and stronger. We go to school, learn new things and form the foundations of the whole of our lives. This is a time where we are truly at peace and okay in our lives. The younger we are the more okay we actually are.
As we move into the mother or father stage of our lives, we change and grow again. We find a mate and focus on becoming a family. Our bodies may change to give birth to children. We change roles from child to parent and put into action our beliefs about how children should be raised that are our own and some of our parents beliefs. During this period in our lives we may be so busy focusing on others, that we may forget to find out whether we are okay or not.
Lastly we move into the crone or sage stage of our lives. We continue to change and grow. Our bodies change into this wise stage. We hopefully have learned many of the lessons of the past. If we have chosen to, we may have healed many things and are now more peaceful and okay with who we really are. Leading to being comfortable in our own skin and wisdom.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could maintain our ‘okayness’ throughout our lives, but we are here to learn and grow so moving in and out of ‘okayness’ is part of learning and growing and a part of our journey.
