As I sit here and reflect on this past month, I realize that I am not as young as I used to be. My daughter had just turned eleven. She was born when I was twenty-six. I am a firm believer that you are as young as you feel. Still, there are times that I feel much older than I am.
I am a believer, and I truly support acts that make us feel much younger than we are.
Age is something that happens to everyone. More than one person looks at growing older as a hindrance as people often want to look younger than they are.
We all know that your chronically age is not accurate in determining your maturity level. All you have to do is observe an internet forum to see this. You can have a thirty-year-old making inflammatory comments; a younger person answering advice.
How do I feel so young?
I do not think of what tomorrow will bring. Each day is a new slate: a brand new day. If I am participating in an activity, I am giving my one-hundred percent. Although I do have a bucket list, I do not dwell on what is next.
Growing up, I was one of those people who would interject myself into a conversation. As I aged, I have found that I need to listen what others say and then think before I respond. I expect the same, so why wouldn’t I do it for others?
During the 2017 election, my Facebook wall was covered with articles–and comments–from those supporting each candidate. Even after so much time past, I could still find comments supporting and belittling our president. Since then, I had to let some friends go and install a social filter that blocks certain phrases. Negativity can affect your outlook on life. The more that a person sees it, the more that he or she will see life that way.
While I do still read the news, I will also read positive things as well as watching things that I find humorous. I feel much younger as a result.
Age is just a number. What are some of the things you do that make you feel younger? Comment below, and if you like this article, share it with your friends.
