What is getting old? To me a number is just a number. As long as I continue to feel young then aging is of no importance it just means continuing to learn and getting smarter (hopefully) lol
Lol! That funny.  I think getting old is good, (not counting the number) you learn more experience.

It is what it is. there's not a damn thing I can do to change it so why worry about it.

If you're in good health age doesn't really matter

The older I get, the more wiser I am :-)

I just turned 25.  I remember thinking of so many goals by the time I turn 25 and I've only accomplished a few of them.  There's always 40!

I'm not old by any means, but the idea of aging and being closer to my expiration date terrifies me. I never thought I would be as old as I am now and birthdays are no longer a celebration. Instead, its a reminder that I don't want. :/

I do not want to get old.  I turned 49 in December. Most days I still feel young but when I look in the mirror or try to do something like run,
that is when I realize I am getting old.  Lots more aches and pains but I still keep active.

I do not like getting old and seeing the signs of aging on my body,but getting older can make a person wiser! To reduce aging just get enough sleep everynight and do not stress about things so much! Also make sure and exercise and stay active!

I recall one of my favorite movie quotes about aging came from near the end of Fried Green Tomatoes (I really don't remember much of anything else about that movie).

Kathy Bates' character was in some kind of supermarket parking lot getting ready to park her car, when a couple of college girls in their convertible sped into the spot stealing it from her.  When she complained to them that they stole her spot, the commented "Face it lady, we're younger and faster."  To which Kathy Bates' character proceeded to smash her car into their convertible.  When the girls looked in horror at their crumpled car, Kathy responded "Face it girls, I'm older and I have more insurance!"

Not that I'm advocating smashing people's cars...   ;D  ...but you get the point.

@kapeh12,

I love your post.  My post on this topic is: "Your not getting older, Your getting Better".  Age is just a state of
mind.  TO me It wouldn't matter to me If I was getting up in years, I have live my life to the fullest.

 :cat: Someone, and I don't remember who, said that growing old is not for sissies. That being said, I am daily surprised when I look in the mirror. I don't know when we get old or how it might sneak up on us. I will be 73 this year and while I have slowed my pace, I am still active and most of all "alive" in mind and body and thankful for all the good in my life. I think when that goes, you are already dead.
