A friend of mine mentioned on Facebook recently that in 18 years she and her husband would be so old. She is about 20 years younger than I am.
Yep, if you live long enough you will get old. And then you will live a bit longer. If I am so lucky, 18 years from now I will be wondering how I lived so long, and how much more fun can I have before it ends.
Age changes you. Your body changes. I have picked up a few scars over the years, but I am still able to do a lot. Maybe not everything I have ever done, but a lot. I move a little slower, but I see and hear things I didn't when I was younger and faster. Your mind will change. There is a wisdom that comes with age. Been there, done that, worn out the T-shirt and remember the lessons learned. I have a better idea of what I enjoy, and what I don't. I am getting better at saying no. If I live long enough, I may learn to only say yes to things I enjoy.
Enjoy old age, it is a pleasure denied to many.
