Getting older is definitely strange, so I have a love/hate with it.  Too many pros/cons to go into, but overall it's good to be alive today.   :peace:

I'm 33 and I really thought (back in my 20s) that the thirties were the beginning of the end. I have REALLY enjoyed the last few years. I am a firm believer you get out of life what you put into it, and that you are only as old as you feel. I feel 21 :D

I don't exactly enjoy it, but it's a fact of life.  It simply is what it is.  It's not horrible, but it's not something I'm happy about.  I guess I'm kind of indifferent - but I wouldn't want to stop aging, either.  That would be unnatural.

It absolutely sucks!  I hate it.  I think about things that happened and all of a sudden I realize that is was 25 years ago!  I look at famous people on TV that I have not seen in a long time and most of the time I am shocked at how they look.  Time is cruel.  I wish I was more accepting of it, but I am not.  lol

I agree with you 100%.

So for us, eat right, exercise, take quality organic vitamins and colloidal minerals, south-spin all our fluids (ala David Kaas Farm Physics: A New Cure and More!), Keep the structure in shape by chiropractic, AtlasProfilax, and/or NCR (neurocranial restructuring), stay away from drugs (illegal AND pHARMaceutical), stay away from vaccines, no artificial foods, sweeteners, oils, etc..., detox regularily, hit the lasers when needed, etc... And well you get the drift.

Well I do not like it but we have no choice cause it is going to happen anyway. I am trying to keep my health up with doctor visits and eating right and trying to be in a open mood to all ideas cause as we age wisdom sets in.  I am 53 and by far feel 40,so lets all have a good open mind on getting older and see it as teh cycle of life that cannot be stoped.

I will feel blessed to be in my eighties.  I am 45 now so if I do make it to see my 80's I will be very happy.

I feel it coming as aches and pains become moe a way of life and the mid-life paunche sets in due to a slower metabolism. I am forty-eight and I think that the average life expectancy is around seventy-five which means my glass is half empty!  I have renewed youth through my two kids and dogs but find myself working more so that I can afford a day off with them!  Anyways I try to live for today and make the best of not being six feet under.  Relish the little things.  I figure I still have thirty good years left in me and I will probably be working till the day that I expire!  I am more keyed on the happiness of my family and their financial well-being. College is a few years down the road and I will just be happy to attend the graduation ceremonies of both kids!

Depends on what you call getting old!  Like they say age is just a number, so don't let it bother you.  Just keep active and eat healthy!

I hate being old but it does beat the alternative and I am fairly healthy and active so I just need to forget it and keep on keeping on.

I think that I am already considered old by society. I am 66 years old going on 67. I am really enjoying life and having more fun than I have ever had.

But it is difficult to get old. Your body changes. You develop health issues that interfere with your quality of life. Family is dead and so are friends.

Either you get old or you die. There are no alternatives. So make up your mind to go with the flow and enjoy it. Remember that you are not doing it alone. Everyone is getting old with you.  :wave:

It is just a number.........a BIG number....HA HA HA.   As my Mom and Dad say "Old age ain't for sissies!"  They are just entering their 80's.  Just keep moving........don't let the aches and pains get you down, just keep moving.  I would like to be younger body wise but stay the same maturity and wisdom wise.  But the worse thing I see people do is think they can't do anything anymore because of their age and they stop moving.....keep  moving...it will keep you younger longer. :dontknow: :wave:

 :cat: Getting older takes a toll on you physically but I wouldn't trade the maturity and wisdom that comes with it for nothing!  :wave:
