Some More Thoughts On Aging...!
You know, the older we get, the more we seem to think deeper about life in general.
We ponder our past, our future, and our present path. Many times we spend way too much time thinking about missed opportunity and past mistakes...and that's not a good thing!
One would think that as we got older, we would try and stay positive about everything. At least, as positive as possible considering all the headlines.
Maybe I can help you a bit to stay positive by sharing a few of these thoughts on aging. Hopefully a few of them might make you smile a bit. If they don't make you smile, maybe they will at least make you stop thinking about your age!
First ~ Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.
Second ~ The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.
Third ~ Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me; I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way, and some of the roads weren't paved.
Fourth ~ When you're dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of Algebra.
Fifth ~ You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.
Sixth ~ I don't know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.
Seventh ~ One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young.
Eighth ~ One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has been. >
Ninth ~ Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.
Tenth ~ Long ago, when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft. Today it's called golf.
And, finally ~ If you don't learn to laugh at trouble, you won't have anything to laugh at when you are old.
As much as I would like to say I thought of all these gems on my own, I'll have to admit that they all came from a gentleman called Will Rogers! You may have heard of him...pretty smart fella, from wht I understand!
Anyway, I do hope you all have a great holiday today! Be safe and be careful! It's a jungle out there!
Now, my friends, let's get some fresh coffee and sit outside for a bit. We can share our thoughts on aging, OK?
