My age has been bothering me lately...

I'm talking myself out of feeling old...

You know you're still young when you can fit into something you had when you were a teenager.

You know you're still young when you stay out all night...never mind that you go to bed every night before ten on a usual night.

You know you're still young when you can list off a bunch of popular bands...the question is can you handle thier music?

You know you're still young when you're trying to convince yourself that you still are

If anyone has any to add, I'd love to read them...

yes i'm foolish and you know what I am young...really...just feeling the middle ages coming on

Its morning and I'm still analyzing this stupid thought process -

my grandparents are in their seventies and they travel the world; they climbed up a mountain in south america; they go out every weekend with their friends; I can rarely get them to babysit, they're so active...so you know you're young when you live life to the fullest of your capabilities

maybe you know you're foolish when you're too busy analyzing life to actually live it

now I feel better...its amazing what talking to yourself can do

When ...
You let carpe diem become your daily motto and mantra
You treat fear be your worst enemy,
You become as spontaneous as possible,
You work, or do something you hold a passion in.

Variety is sure the spice of life and it does keep you young, as does inter-acting with younger people.

Copperbell? I want to be like your grandparents when/if I'm in my seventies

Well I see you doing, What I try to do for me, With the words from a poet, And a voice from a choir, And a melody, nothing else matters. ~Stevie Nicks

Mysteria - I think its just something I realize I can't hold on to - my dad says age is just a number, it has nothing to do with who you are...its the weirdest thing, this has NEVER bothered me before - I guess I know there are changes ahead

Angel- I want to be like my grandparents when I'm old ...when my grandfather was in his sixties he would fly in airshows - formation flying -
I don't know the terminology, but all the tricks those guys do - it was pretty neat

You know you're still young when your teenage son still thinks you're cool enough to hang with and isn't embarassed to be seen with you.

You know you are still young when you can relate to the music your neices and nephews are listening to. (Mine are 20!)

I was talking to a lady from work today - she's about fifty and she told me about how she was rolling down the hill with her nieces and nephews...

I thinking this isn't about age - its about frame of mind - and perhaps many older people understand - who cares about being young...its about life

just my observation for the day...
