I'm 68 years old.  My friends probably range in age from 50 to 80 years old.  As you age, things physically change in your body.  Consequently you start hearing things like:

          It's hell getting old.

          I'm falling apart.

          It's no fun getting older

          ...and on...and on...and on.

As I wrote in my blog, "A Light In The Darkness" a couple of weeks ago, I just got over sun poisoning.  I've never had it before in my life.  I also have back issues off and on since my automobile accident several years ago.  I have glaucoma and my hearing is dimming.

Now I could be one of those people who complain about all that, but instead I AM SO GRATEFUL that I live in a time when really, none of those things are a big deal.  I have hearing aides to help with my hearing loss.  I have exercises to help my back.  I have eye drops for the glaucoma. 

Attitude is everything and I'm still very excited about life!  Instead of focusing on all that is going wrong, I prefer to focus on all the wonderful things that are going right in my life.  I don't see it as falling apart.  I see it as getting a make-over.

Love,  Paula
