Unconventional Aging Again

It is not how old you are but how you are old.  ~~ Marie Dressler

For my 60th birthday, my friend sent me a card. On the front was a picture of an older woman gleefully propelling herself along on a tricycle, and on the inside was the Marie Dressler quote above. For those of you who have never heard of Marie Dressler, she was an actress born in 1868  who started in vaudeville, moved into silent films and eventually won an Oscar...yes the Oscar's have been around that long.

I imagine I would have been an admirer of Marie Dressler had she still been alive when I was born. In an age of beautiful movie stars (not much different than today), she was rather plain and frumpy. But that never stopped her from getting into show business and making it all the way to the top.

So, on your next birthday, especially if you're feeling trepidation about getting older, shake it off. Age is a gift to be embraced, and it truly has little to do with the number but in how you perceive it.
