Last night I went to see the Rolling Stones with some friends, it surpassed my expectations greatly, it was breathtaking, not only the quality of the performance but the sheer volume of people coming together in one place for a shared purpose: joy and celebration. But most of all what I took from it was quite a special gift, it challenged my latent ageism and by proxy created such positive hope for the future, just like childhood experiences are changing with the times so too can our twilight years, so thank you Mick Jagger et all for the incredible energy you exuberate and the outstanding amount of sequins and glitter because quite frankly, why bloody not! It’s great. #morning @rollingstonesreal @londonstadium #livemusic#london#stratford#ageisjustanumber#ageism#snakehips#glitter#rock#timestheyareachanging#whynot
I've met death's door many times jus like this one, n 1985..'I was brought back to life'..but really I fought myself back to life and da Great Creator saved me frm death. I've always been a fighter, I always will b. I will never give up on my dreams, so, I'm not young enough? Not pretty like I was? So the fuck what! I'm still a winner! #ageisjustanumber#success#motorcyles#mcaccident#shootforthestars#deathsdoor

Chilean born author Isabel Allende taught me to live with passion. I’ve admired her magical books for many years but her TED talks ‘Tales of Passion’ and later ‘How to live passionately, no matter your age’ actually changed my attitude to life. “Heart is what drives us and determines our fate. That is what I need for my characters in my books: a passionate heart. I need mavericks, dissidents, adventurers, outsiders and rebels, who ask questions, bend the rules and take risks” she says in her 2007 talk.
She speaks of amazing women, heroes amoung us, doing courageous work through passion.
I urge you to watch her talks and read her books to truly understand the concept of living with passion. Something I certainly can’t convey in a post on Instagram.
She returned to the Ted stage in 2014 at the age of 71 to share her passionate wisdom (you’ll also find out about her Antonio Banderas fantasy in this talk!). She says: “So how can I stay passionate? I cannot will myself to be passionate at 71. I have been training for some time, and when I feel flat and bored, I fake it. Attitude, attitude. How do I train? I train by saying yes to whatever comes my way: drama, comedy, tragedy, love, death, losses. Yes to life.” @allendeisabel @ted -

Week 7: A new record has been set! 110 lbs on the lat-pulldown which is the heaviest that @joaquin.fit357 has ever done. I'm proud that the strength levels are going beyond what it was prior to the stroke. The determination of this man to better himself is an inspiration to everyone. Keep grinding, keep focused. Good job sir! 💪
A strong woman knows she has strength enough for the journey, but a woman of strength knows it is in the journey where she will become strong.
I love my strength training days. It’s important to mix up your workouts, keep your body guessing and do other things aside from cardio!! It’s so good for your body and your soul. I didn’t always look forward to weight training but I’ve grown to love it. Sometimes it’s not all about pounding the pavement to get in the miles. There are other factors involved in becoming strong and healthy. Slowing down and lifting heavy is important. #balanceinallthings
Und wieder ein neuer ☀️ sonniger Tag. Und mir ist heut genauso sonnig und albern zu Mute, ja auch in meinem Alter 😀🙃… Age is just a Number 😉
Wir bekommen fast alle von klein auf eingetrichtert, wie wir uns zu verhalten haben, was sich gehört und was nicht.
Es gibt viele Klischeevorstellungen, was man im Alter tut und was nicht. Im Alter, sollte / müsste man eben gewisse Dinge nicht mehr tun.
In Wahrheit ist es gerade umgekehrt. Wenn wir Dinge aufgeben, dann werden wir alt. Solange wir am Leben teilnehmen, neugierig und offen sind für alles, was wir nicht kennen, solange bleiben wir jung, und nur das zählt.
Es sind nicht die Zahl der Jahre, die alt macht, sondern unsere Einstellung, alt zu sein und deshalb bestimmte Dinge nicht mehr tun zu können.
Also macht euch einen verrückten crazy Tag und völlig gegen jegliche Klischeevorstellungen an! Sending Kisses 😘 #happyday#ageisjustanumber#laughing#crazy#khfis#foreveryoung#life#fitover40#ansteckend
Spending more time outdoors...
As Melbourne weather cools down I struggle.
I’m like a big bear who just wants to eat a ton of comfort food and then hibernate - give me 45oC weather any day 😊.
This autumn/winter I’m trying to accept that I don’t live in the tropics 🌴 and find ways to improve my energy, mood and motivation.
One of my strategies is to spend more time outdoors (good for increased serotonin and vitamin D levels) in my everyday life.
One of the more successful habits I have created is to always ride, run or walk to wherever my kids are doing sport.
Today I walked to see my daughter running and generally I run or ride my @bossibicycles flatbar to watch my son play football.
Would love to know any simple ideas you have for spending more time outdoors.
