We can find ourselves at times becoming tired of our circumstances of life and becoming embittered or disillusioned about our possibilities for change.
Yes we can become old physically and mentally as we see our opportunities appear to vanish along with our youth. Optimism becomes more difficult to maintain under the constant struggle we appear to be in by just living.
What we need to remember is that we may grow old in many ways but our spirit inside is still young and everlasting. Keeping in touch with our spirit is a source of constant renewal available to us at all times no matter the circumstances of our life.
It is in our darkest moments that we need to use the force of spirit to create change and renewal in ourselves.
