It takes a long time to become young." Pablo Picasso
In our youth we are carefree,we have no worries. We explore life with abandon. We basically do what we want within reason . We are happy carefree untouched by the world. Well at least the majority of us.
Then in our twenties many of us start careers and family and then . Well and then there is responsibility. There is a loss of yourself as you cater to your boss your spouse and your children. It is easy to lose you in the shuffle. Then you add the stress , bills , sickness, violence, and the never ending housework regular work and constant worry of others. A lot of the fun in your life is gone. You sometimes feel older then your years.
Then in your fifties and sixties something strange begins to happen. you are no longer encumbered by the stress of carriers and children. You are free of a lot of the responsibility of life. You begin to feel young again . younger as you spend more time thinking only of you, your wants and desires. some people take up writing or painting. Some men take up golf or card games with long ago friends or new ones.
You just get up in the morning and are free to do what ever fun thing that comes to mind, money willing. There is time to do almost anything you want , and you can spend the day doing almost anything you want , health willing. Some older folks find themselves free to say what they want anytime they feel like it, the first time in their lives.
They can kick up their heels and do any crazy dance they want , or sing off key any time they feel the desire. People will forgive them , oh he's just having fun he is old.
So if you are feeling old right now just know in time you will be young again of that I am sure .
