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.
