Kermit Says: Live

I recently had the pleasure of serving as the dorm head for a high school reunion for the class of 1954. Upon hearing that this particular class would be celebrating their 60th high school reunion (*applause*), I just knew this would be a piece of cake because they’d be quiet, neat, and in bed by 8:00pm. Boy was I wrong! From the moment I met my residents, I knew my ageist perception of this group was so far from right. In fact, they are quite possibly the most lively and rambunctious group of people I’ve ever met! Here, I realized that Aaliyah (rest in paradise) was right when she sang age ain’t nothin’ but a number. Whether you’re 10 months, 20 years, or 100 years old, remember to live life without fear, without inhibitions, and with passion.

Fearlessly: While trying new things can be scary, you’ll never know what you like and don’t like unless you try. Test the waters. Step outside of your comfort zone and try something new: travel, eat something you’ve never eaten before, color outside of the lines, discover a new hobby. Whatever you do, do it…

Limitlessly: Take the boundaries off your life, off your faith, and off yourself. When you limit God, you limit what He can do in your life. And when you limit yourself, you limit your potential. Dare to dream big dreams, and dare to do whatever it takes to turn those dreams into realities. Once you take the limits off, live your life…

Passionately: Find what you love, and do that. Don’t let anyone make you feel inferior. Don’t let anyone dim your light. Remove those “negative Nancy’s” from your life and replace them with “supportive Sandy’s.” Fuel your passions with the love of what you do, and surrounded by those who love you.

Remember, we all grow old, but that doesn’t mean we have to act like old fuddy-duddies.

Regardless of your age, choose to live like no one’s watching, and even if they are, keep on going!
