SENIORS: CULTIVATING CONFIDENCE

Mar 22nd, 2012 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

Among the interferences that seem to accompany aging is the phenomenon of loss of confidence. It is rather like the winter flu or a very bad cold. It comes upon you surreptitiously. It resides longer than it is welcome. It creates discomfort and fatigue. It is unwelcome, but finds, somehow, a way to occupy your frame of mind.

There is about it the need to call upon some home remedy, a salve or balm or elixir to escort it away. Just as it arrived uninvited, perhaps it can be removed just as suddenly. However, it does have its tricks. Occupying yourself with other thoughts, motivations and distractions may work. It may take longer than you wish. Cultivating confidence can be something like planting an early spring flower bed. It may require some careful tending, some gentle nurturing.
