Naomi Colb, a coach, transformational trainer and ageless being, preaches intentional and creative living with life your way is possible for those that seek it out. This US expat was dissolusioned with how older folks were being treated at home. Naomi has lived in South America for over 5 years and can answer the question ‘what is community and why is it important?’
“Community – ……. ‘nurturing human connection’ — is our survival. We humans wither outside of community. It isn’t a luxury, a nice thing; community is essential to our well being.” – Frances Moore Lappe
Why is community important? A lot of folks have a fear of ending end up on their own apart from family and friends. This is where having a community saves us from the isolation and that alienation we fear. In the real world people believe they have no choice.
Naomi recognizes the importance of community and is on a mission to show that you can have your life your way. A community is about finding each other and a place to call home. It is possible to build a community when you are not happy with what is available locally.
After living in Coasta Rica for 5 years Namoi has recently relocated to Cuenca, Ecuador with ease. Trusting in herself and her system she has built up over the years Namoi has settled into her new surroundings with ease.
Being on your own does not mean you have to lonely. Naomi Colb embrases being an ageless being. The Secret to Being Ageless is that it shifts your focus to the life you are living and away from your age. In truth you are both: you are aging because you all are but the real you has no age and doesn’t change no matter how old your body gets.
In the end it is about finding a community that treats your age group with reverence, allows you to live your life, respects the way you are with others, and honors the way you treat yourself.
When you focus on how old you are getting, you feel doubt and fear, and your confidence may fly out the window. Having self-imposed limitations abouty our age is pointless.
An Age Focused Life:-
- Worrying about how your age affects your success
- You react to every little thing
- Too busy with your life to reach out to others
- Always being distracted and thinking of the next thing that needs doing
- Concerned that life is short, but acting as if my life will last forever
An Ageless Focused Life:-
- Slow down and take time for meditation and prayer each day
- Focus on being present and a good listener
- Focus on the positive with thoughts, words and deeds
- Be prepared to give to others because you can’t receive what you have not given
- Have an attitude of being grateful
