Age is merely a number. It shows an opportunity for life experience. It does not limit who you are, what you are, or when to stop mentally or physically being active.
Life should be shared as you have more friends, business contacts and wisdom to share.
Work to mix up your life. Stay interested and interesting. Invest time making new friends and as a point friends both older and younger. The more people you interact with the more engaging and fun life can be.
Above all, strive to not live your life vicariously through your television set or computer. Remember life is for the living. Look at each day as a wonderful new opportunity.
Yes, we all have aches and pains, but work to move through them. The more stimulated your mind is and the more active you are the more you find that you do not have the time to address the pains of life and aging. Great athletes even very young ones perform at the highest levels working through the pain. Work to take a no excuses attitude.
Socialize with people who are positive and add fun, laughter and enhance your life. A positive attitude goes a long way to combat sickness!
Look at age and birthdays and work to reflect each year on 3-5 new things you learned about life, yourself, new skills, friends and move that forward. Look at each year as an opportunity to gather and collect. Age is about building, not destruction.
