You ask me what prevents you from manifesting your true desires. My answer is always the same. It’s your ego that conditioned part of you which takes control of your life based on its limited view of what you deserve.
Who has your back when the going gets tough? ME Who heals your back when it hurts and is tired? ME Who still loves you when you’re kicking yourself in the backside? ME You see, you and I are best friends.
The golden years don’t really have anything to do with age. In fact, they can happen at any age because the golden years are when you strike it rich. You find gold and discover that gold is called wisdom.
