Written by Life Coach Carioca Da Gema


Life goes through a tremendous spin in our first five decades.

At fifty without thinking that our life is over we start prioritizing our time. Let’s face it the time is really ticking now, and watching commercials between our favorite shows is an unaffordable waste of time.

But while we concentrate on all these daily acts we no longer need or just make time for the new stuff we want to do. Do we forget to look inside those messy drawers strategically filed in our minds under the title  I do not want to go there”.

Is that possible to leave behind our baggage as we edge into becoming elderly? 

We live our individual lives, but as humans our life stories are the same.  We all have memories we would like to forget, occasions that we like to talk about.  We are very proud of certain events; not so excited about others.  Our happiness, sadness, successes, losses, and so on, are not unique. 

As the pearly gates float in our minds more than ever before, there is no point in punishing ourselves over negative memories, they simply no longer exist. Settle the affairs you can, forget the ones you cannot, and move on into your older days, but don’t leave the good memories behind.

Neutrality comes with the price of being disconnected. Society is composed of like-minded people; teal lovers search for bluish-green connections, and the burnt sienna worshippers choose to navigate a path that’s deep reddish brown. Embracing the color wheel will yield richer exposure and isolation.
There is no glory in neutrality.
