I Do Not Fear Aging

For those who grow old with grace. 192 People

    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...

    Live Through Your Spirit

    I don't fear it because as long as a person's happy then what else matters?  Be content with yourself then you won't care if you have wrinkles here and there. In addition, there are ways to sort of keep a youthful look through eating healthy foods and living through ones...

    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.

    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.

    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"

    Age is an issue of mind over matter.

    If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.

    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.

    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 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...

    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.

    Youth Cannot Know
