A while back I found myself noticing more and more things that weren’t as I used to think they were. Random things I used to believe. I began to wonder if it was just the way things go as we get older.
I decided after about a month of thinking of things and letting them go, to keep a list on Evernote. I would just make a note every time I thought of something I used to believe.
And today I decided to share it and see how you feel about these things.
I think it’s a combination of the world changing and also that with the Internet and social media making things knowable, it’s harder to pull the wool over people’s eyes. Or maybe I’m just naive.
Some things I used to believe have changed because I educated myself on the topic.
Some things changed because it seems people have changed, or my eyes have been opened to the cruelty of people. Either way, it just makes me sad. It makes me sad for them and it makes me sad for the entire world that has to live with the wake of their energy.
Here are some of the things I used to believe:
I used to believe if you were in trouble the police would help you
I used to believe if something said it was ‘natural’ it was
I used to believe if I saw something on the news it was true
I used to believe that all people were basically good
I used to believe that a package told you what was really in something
I used to believe politicians had our best interest at heart
I used top believe doctors knew how to make people well
I used to believe medicine, pills, and surgery were cures
I used to believe government served the people
I used to believe what was taught in schools was true
I used to believe if a scientific study was done the results could be trusted
I used to believe companies wouldn’t produce and sell things they know will kill us and tell us it’s good for us
I used to believe you could make good money in the stock market if you were willing to take the time learning the ropes
I used to believe that teachers taught because they loved kids and wanted to see them grow and learn
I used to believe reporters checked their facts before publishing a story
I used to believe the things sold at a health good store were good for me and certainly weren’t bad for me
After reading this list, I’d really be interested in knowing what you used to believe.

Being a critical thinker is part of clearing the space to create an ageless lifestyle after 50. It’s important to be aware of all the things in life you used to believe and what has changed, maybe even more important than knowing why they’ve changed.
If after pondering this and coming up with your own list, you want to take some positive action, I have a suggestion for you.
The first step is to create the foundational document for your life, your Personal Manifesto. If you haven’t completed this document yet, click here to get your free copy of the special report which walks you through the process and gives you a template to use for creating your own personal manifesto.
Then you can move naturally into the next step of creating and achieving the goals you’ve set in the recognition of what you choose to manifest as your divine soul purpose.Click here for help with your goals. It’s all part of allowing your ageless mind to successfully manifest the ageless lifestyle you choose to create through living your life’s purpose.
