Growing older

Wednesday, July 02, 2014

Where did I ever get the idea that the older I got, the more "pulled together" I would be? Things would make more sense; I'd have greater clarity of purpose. I'd have my "act" together.

But the reality is, I still have "growing pains". I'm still going through my "awkward stage". And I seriously doubt that I'm ever going to have a cosmic-sized "a-ha" moment.

And that's okay . . .

    emoticon That is so funny. And yep . . . I'm still trying to "grow up". I thought the same as you . . . except I still think that maybe I'll get my act together . . . OR not ....

    Actually I like being old too. Even though it takes longer to accomplish the routine things, it gives me a chance to be grateful that I can still clean house or do the laundry, make a meal or take a hike. Yes, I suppose we all pretend to some extent...but the One who truly knows us inside and out provides lots of opportunities to get real again... emoticon

    There are changes.... like I no longer have to finish a book or movie or event if I'm not enjoying it.

    But it amazes me that other people still influence my decisions and when you mentioned awkward stage... I thought, yup, I can relate to that too. IS everyone just pretending? That makes me giggle.

    I LOVE being old--I don't worry, I get all kinds of discounts, I can sneer at youngsters, I am happy and content and I can use being old for NOT doing a lot of things!!!

    Okay so 'age is not just a number' and 'you're just as old as you feel' isn't true and getting out of bed can be harder than it use to be and I am paying for all the fun I had as a kid smoking, drinking, eating all the wrong foods with aches and pains today but it was worth it!
