    Becoming The Elders

    You know you're all grown up when, after Easter dinner, a joint gets lit and passed around the room. No kids. No parents. No safety net.

    Aging

    Aging just like death, it cannot be escaped and we will go through it even if we don't like the process and results of it.  I guess, we have to deal with it.

    Can't Stop It.

    Why should I fear something that is the natural progression in life.We are all getting older day by day. Like they say you are only as old as you feel. Right now I don't feel like i'm 43, but more like in my early 30's. While i'm here on this earth i'm going to enjoy my time...

    I Have Earned It

    I have earned every single fine line and gray hair!   When I think of all I've been through, it amazes me that I don't look twice my age!  Alas, just a few gray hairs and a couple fine lines on my face.  Actually, my hair is naturally very light blonde, and the little gray...

    I am by no means old but I'm not worried about aging at all. Older people tend to have more wisdom so I'm all for it.

    Wisdom

    I am excited to become wiser. I want to experience life to the fullest. I want to become the best person I can possibly be. And all of this takes time. That's why I don't fear aging. The positives outweigh the negatives. I mean, getting older means getting more fragile and not-as...

    It's just something that happens in life you

    know? People age every day and I'm okay with that. Someday I will age and I do not really care. I do not care about my appearance. What I do care is the way people look at me. Like my personality and not the way I look like in the mirror. Aging is normal. It really is.

    I don't understand the fear most people have of

    aging.... It's just nature running its natural course. If you're 79, I guess that's rational since you're near your life expectancy but I get annoyed when girls around my age complain about their age. Wtf? We're in our early 20's. My teenaged years were crap and I am thankful...
