So today I turn 34 which is no big deal to me. I know some day I will cringe to say how old I am. Plus once people reach a certain age, mentally they change their thinking. So you start hearing about aches, pains and problems. I'm not saying they aren't real but if you didn't know how old you were, would these things still occur?
My neighbor is 97 and just started slowing down last year. She broke her leg and doesn't want a repeat performance. She uses a walker and she is still optimistic and funny. I wish I could visit her more but there's no way I'm going over when there's a cold floating around our house.
I propose a new system of counting how old we are. So I'm 34, take that and add the 2 numbers together. So that makes me 7 this year. Which means I'm older than my mother who is turning 6, lucky woman. I think people will be less age focused and start acting younger than they are.
Also I have an easier time remembering a single digit number than a double digit. For the last year I forgot I was 33. When ever I was asked I had to do the math. It seriously isn't important unless you are waiting to become president or for social security. So less worrying and start feeling younger today! Because you aren't that old! How old does that make you?
Almost forgot please leave a comment in this post and/or the last post to be entered into the fairy give away. You have until next Wednesday to post.
