Is Aging Taken Too Seriously?

You survived another year, yet you're ashamed of your achievement? That happens so frequently. I hear individuals say I am getting old. I have heard older individuals say they have nothing left to offer.

I have always enjoyed my birthday. And I have never understood why individuals don’t. I believe age is primarily in your mind. I have wondered if individuals who don’t enjoy their birthdays are simply afraid. Are they afraid of what is coming? Or is it that they feel they have lost something.

I really don’t know the answer to those questions. But I do believe that we do take aging way too seriously. Each day is a new opportunity to enjoy what is offered to us.

  1. I have no problem telling people my age, I love my birthday, I love getting older and wiser. My mum is 78 but was saying only last week that she doesn't think she is old, I don't think she is old either.
