I Do Not Fear Aging

For those who grow old with grace. 219 People

    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.

    Old, To Late To Change

    I found the following joke so true, I want to share it with EP I confied to my husband on the eve of our 50th anniversary, that I was having an affair. He turned to me and asked...... Are you having it catered? An that, my friends, is the definition of "old"

    When I looked at myself in the mirror this

    morning after shower, I realized that I am already aging because I see wrinkles in my face, crow's feet in my eye area...Some imperfections can be seen because of the length of time I am in this earth. That supple skin when I was in my early years is gone, changes are evidence...

    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.

    My hairdresser found my first gray hairs last

    summer. She would have wanted to dye my hair to make them disappear, and she rolled her eyes, when I told her I actually liked the idea of getting gray hair. I have also been getting more and more wrinkles, I think I look older than people at my age in general. I don't mind - I...

    Live Through Your Spirit

    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.

    Youth Cannot Know

    Hello Wrinkles.. Here I Come!

    I can distinctly remember being a kid and knowing I did not at all want to grow up. Adults always seemed so stressed. Of course now that I'm an adult I get it but I know that I will never grow up. I am and have always been a kid at heart. Just because my body gets older does not...

    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 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...
