My dad used to tell me when I was young that "You are only as old as you feel." This is a statement that I have taken to be like a motto to me. In a couple of months I will celebrate my 56th Birthday. When I say that I will celebrate it. I mean celebrate it. My family and friends tease me about the gray streaks that are becoming more prominent in my hair now a days. My DH has even asked me if I wanted to have it colored. I told him that why should I hide my gray. I have earned every single gray hair in my head. After all I have been married to DH for 21 years (lol)
Though I grow olde. I don't feel old. Though there are parts of my life that if I could do over again. I would do so. I am pretty much happy with the way my life has been. So a little advice for those of you who think you are getting old. Old is actually a frame of mind. If you can still get around and think for yourself. You are not old just really experienced.
Both of my folks are gone now. I am sure you all have heard this before if not here it is. The older I get the smarter my parents and their advice got. Listening to them more would have been one of the things I would change if I could.
