Am I Too Old?

Am I too old

Exploring The Three Principles with Sarie Taylor

I was driving the car the other day and Aria still sits rear facing in the front so that she can see me, and sometimes she needs distracting so I tend to find myself giving her whatever she ask for (I know I am making a rod for my own back!).

So the other day she kept asking for my glasses and although I have had them for years, I think I am still in denial and don’t see myself as a glasses wearer for some reason, and I often forget to take them with me for driving.

Recently I decided to make more effort to not forget them and so I have been becoming more used to driving with them on.

So when Aria asked for them, I took them off my head and passed her my glasses.

In an instant the world seemed a blur!

You know how your thoughts can just pop into your head randomly and you can get carried away very quickly?

I went from my eyes being blurry to thinking:
"The world is fading in front of my eyes"
"I am getting older though so that's to be expected"
"Oh my god I am getting older"
"I am old"
"My poor baby girl has an old mum" …

You get the picture.
I caught myself very quickly and laughed to myself and quickly took my glasses back so that nobody was unsafe on the roads! 

It made me think of something I saw on TikTok once, I can’t remember who it was (if you have seen it let me know in the comments below who it was) and the lady said something along these lines…

You can be aged 20 and feel young, then hit 40 and start to think you are getting older, you may then hit 60 and think I am old.

We think about our birth date as an indication of whether we are old or young, but if we are 20 and we die at 25 then 20 is old not young.

If we are 40 and don't die until we are 90 then 40 is young.

Its our death date that defines whether we are old or young and none of us know when that is!

I loved this when I heard this because not only did it remind me that we can't control most things, it also made me feel grateful that I am still here living life with a future still ahead of me.

Its all about perspective and perception and in that moment I decided to change mine. 

I turned up the music and sang and Aria bobbed up and down in her car seat, and we had fun and a lovely connection.

In that moment age or time did not matter in the slightest!

With love

Are we overcomplicating mental health? 

The continuous spiral of talking about mental illness and neglecting to discuss mental health that’s within us all! 

Finding herself in a mental hospital for a month aged 22, her worst fears of going crazy had come true! Sarie truly believed she was broken for many years, and now sees that this was in part due to massively over complicating what it meant be a human being. After a long period of exploring and training as a psychotherapist, still burning out every 18 months for another ten years, Sarie finally found the answer, and now shares the surprising simplicity of it all to help others get the same relief. 

Sarie has trained as a transactional analysis psychotherapist, as well as working and training in many other therapeutic disciplines, such as NLP, CBT, DBT and hypnotherapy. Sarie is also an author, celebrity coach and therapist, working with thousands of people a year, of all ages, all over the world. Her main aim is to help them really see the simplicity and beauty behind human nature, getting out of their heads and into their lives, being able to see that the inside out nature of life really is a gift. This removes limitations and stories they may hold about themselves, and as a result finding an ease and contentment in life they often never knew was possible.
