Old is Relative

Old for me has always been something that did not happen until you were in your 80’s or 90’s.   Even from a young age I reserved old from people who were older than my grandparents and even my great grandparents.    My grandparents were older, older than me, and older than my parents, but they were not old.   On the flip side of that I never knew how to define young.   Young was relative to your life experiences.  You could be an old soul in a young body.

So sometimes my body feels weary and old, and I get bogged down by that.  I need to remember that old is relative.  There are still tons of things I have yet to see, hear, and experience.    I am the beginning of the second side of my life, just the beginning.   Let’er rip!
