On Age and Aging

I have seen discussions on AMD regarding age but I for one have always thought of age as a matter of perspective. Often when I look in a mirror I do not recognize the fellow looking back at me simply because I have never thought of myself in terms of age. But I think most of us can find ourselves in the following on aging.


Aging, do you realize that the only time in our lives when we like to get old is when we're kids? If you're less than 10 years old, you're so excited about aging that you think in fractions.

"How old are you?" "I'm four and a half!" You're never thirty-six and a half. You're four and a half, going on five! That's the key.

You get into your teens, now they can't hold you back. You jump to the next number, or even a few ahead.

"How old are you?" "I'm gonna be 16!" You could be 13, but hey, you're gonna be 16! And then the greatest day of your life, you become 21. Even the words sound like a ceremony. . . . YOU BECOME 21. YESSSS!!!

But then you turn 30. UH Oooohh, what happened there? Makes you sound like bad milk! He TURNED; we had to throw him out. There's no fun now, you're Just a sour-dumpling. What's wrong? What's changed? Aren’t I the same person today at 30 that I was yesterday at 29?

You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you're PUSHING 40. Whoa, slow down! Put on the brakes, it's all slipping away. Before you know it, you REACH 50 and your dreams are gone.

But wait!!! You MAKE it to 60. You didn't think you would!

So you BECOME 21, TURN 30, PUSH 40, REACH 50 and MAKE it to 60.

By now you have built up so much speed you can’t slow down and then you HIT 70! After that it's a day-by-day thing; you HIT Wednesday!

You get into your 80s and every day becomes an age cycle; you HIT lunch; you TURN 4:30; you REACH bedtime. And it doesn't end there. Into the 90s, you start going backwards; "I Was JUST 92."

Then a strange thing happens. If you make it over 100, you become a little kid again. "I'm 100 and a half!"

May you all make it to a healthy 100 and a half!!

It has been said that you are only as old as you feel so stay young and here are some tips for staying young.

1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay them.

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.

3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. "An idle mind is the devil's workshop." And the devil's name is Alzheimer's.

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love, whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies or whatever it is that makes you happy. Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

11. Join AMD.

12. And most important don’t ever stop having sex, sex and more sex!

I'll be 42 my next birthday, and I say, "42 and FABULOUS!" I love being the age I am! I want to be like my parents- when someone asks their age they say, "I was born in 1932, YOU do the math!"
I look forward to each birthday, and yes, I still get a bang out of my birthdays! I loved turning 16, 21, 30 and then 40! And unbelievably, I'm looking forward to 50!
I'll never be one of those women who freak out over how old I am! I'm just glad to be healthy and alive!

Don't take guilt trips

Easy for you to say, my mother was a travel agent for guilt trips.
