Not For The Faint of Heart

The local news aired a piece for an upcoming documentary about women and aging.  As a woman who is aging, here are my thoughts:

*Aging is frightening.  When I go to the pantry and then can't remember why I'm there, or when I lose track of my deadlines... is it an early sign of dementia?

*Aging is accompanied by aches and pains.  Activities that once were effortless now require much more energy and cause my muscles and joints to "talk" to me in a louder voice than before.

*Aging causes the creases in my face left after sleeping with my face buried in the pillow to hang around until midday.

On the flip side:

*Aging is an eye-opening experience.  Each day brings something new which can be viewed as a hurdle or a gift.  I choose "gift" because each new day, no matter your age, is a blessing.

*Aging makes me realize how many wonderful experiences I've had and how much I've seen.  Technology allows me to experience more even faster.

*Aging gives me the wisdom to value the small things in life and to see the beauty in everything and everyone.

*Aging means I'm still here living and loving and enjoying.  It's a good thing.

For me, aging means that the number of years I've been on the planet and the number I feel in my head are not the same.  You see, in my head, I'm still 27...and that is the miracle of aging.

It IS All In Your Head!
