A Sixty Year Old Woman

What preconceived notions spring to mind when reading or hearing that phrase?  I am not there yet but am thinking about it so as to be ready when the time comes.

While up on a roof re-pointing a wall alongside my husband, I wondered if that was 60 year old behaviour and that is when I realized I must have a pile of prejudice, some avowed, some un-avowed and even unconscious, indefinable but nevertheless present.  I have not minded thinking of myself as a “quinca”, short for quinquagénaire which means being in one’s fifties but “sexa”?  Maybe I fear a weakness, a waning.  The next dry day, I must be sure to climb the nut tree.

Part of being a penitent as encouraged by The Revelation of Arès is to free oneself from prejudice.  I do not accept a stereotype for myself so why should I do so for others?

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.

    Absolutely! Why conform? It’s so much more fun to do what you’re capable of rather than limiting yourself.

    When I think of being sixty all I can think of is, “Still seven years to go before retirement.” LOL
    One of the many things I learned from my mother is to never conform to what others think you should be (or do). She was somewhat of a free spirit, dressing and behaving the way she wanted. She never acted her age. I intend to follow her example, even though I may not go as far as climbing a nut tree 😉
