“Age is just a number,” says the well-worn adage. But is it a number you care about, or one you tend (or try) to ignore?
By now long time readers (all 6 of you) should know that I have a saying : “You are only as old as the girls you feel!” so bring on the 16 year old chickies! I love that saying, even if I came up with that myself!
Ah, on a more serious note, while I do believe that you can remain young at heart by following your dreams, being silly at times and enjoy doing the things that you love and having fun, there are certain things that you can’t escape from as the passages of time throw it’s long dark shadows on you. I don’t feel much different, other than physically, from the time I was in my early to mid 20s as I do now – a couple of days away from my 38th birthday.
I’ve always felt younger than my age and this will probably continue to be so until my dying days. But the growing old part doesn’t always have to be a bad thing. Nothing can last forever so why fret over it too much? I guess though it’s hard to comply to that way of thinking.
