It can be said that the final four or five years of one’s life are decisive.
No matter how good the preceding years may have been, one’s life ends in defeat and sadness if the final few years are miserable. On the other hand, someone whose last four or five years are happy, with vigor of spirit and filled with joy can be described as victorious. No matter what happens, even if we should fall sick, we must never grow discouraged or allow ourselves to be defeated. It may be difficult but the reality is we have had a lifetime to prepare so what not be a victor?
This is vital. As long as our spirits are undefeated in the end, as long as we can enjoy what we have and not what was lost or never done, we are victors.
Peace and Love, Jim
