Very true! I have a dear friend who learned to dap dance at the age of 50. She's now in her late 70s and still going strong! Shen belongs to a dance group (all over 65) that puts on shows several times a year.
Really? There are people that don't feel excited about the skills they are learning? I don't get it. I go from new thing to new thing because I love the feeling of learning something.
Right now, it's swimming and it is fun to learn how to tweak my skills to speed up and to do new strokes. I'm going to the pool today to work on some new drills I learned and I noticed my excitement didn't resonate with my friend when I described the drills... oh well. I like it.
I semi retired at 40, learned Spanish, moved to a third world country for 8 years. Now I´m a lot older, but still have the desire to run half marathon. At times I think I´m crazy, but have regained my enthusiasm. Thank you
I'm still amazed that at this age (40) I'm still learning how to use my body in ways I never thought about--like swimming or building muscles or learning to roller blade. How awesome! I hope I can keep this up, because as I child I never thought I was 'athletic' and now, I do see myself as some what of an athlete, for the first time.
