Age - It's All Relative

Age - What does it mean to you? To me it is just a number. Who says because you reach a certain age you should be feeling this way or that way. I can very well remember when I was thirteen and wishing that I looked older because everyone thought I was younger than I was. It comes in handy now because I am fifty and I don't look like it. yippee.

I still feel the same now as I did then. I still like to drive fast, I still like to go out and dance, I still like to drink but I don't do as much of it or as often as I did then. I still like to watch the same kind of movies, I still like to read the same kind of books.

I have seen people that are young act old- and I have seen older people act young.

It is all in your frame of mind. Granted there are certain things your body won't let you do anymore. Several years ago my daughter and nieces were out in the front yard at my brothers house for a get together. Anyway they were doing flips and I tried it and I realized then that I couldn't do flips anymore. I have also broken a leg several years ago so that kind of limits me also physically.

I remember when I was a young girl that I thought forty was old but I realize now that forty is not old at all.

If think old you will act old but if you keep the joy of life alive you will not be old.
I enjoy being fifty years young
