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

Well I'm not going to get old in "spirit" so I'm consistent with getting older in age. As long as eat right, stay positive and exercise I'll be good. There is no point in disliking getting older when its going to happen regardless.

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

Getting old is good in a sense. You become wiser and more mature.

Getting old is more than a number. It's our bodies deterriating. I just say that no matter how old the number gets as long as you're alive act like it. I hate when people get a certain age and then act like they're dead already.

Beats the heck out of the alternative....I just turned 70 on saturday.  I've had both knees and both hips replaced.  I have no more arthritis pain and you can't tell I've had anything done when I walk.  My dad was still falling timber at 70.  He died when he was almost 91 and my mother died at almost 92.  I have friends about my age that keep harping about feeling old.  I have no intention of acting like that.  My hair is starting to get a little gray and I wear glasses.  Other than that I feel great. :notworthy: :wave: :heart:

I would feel better about getting old if the neighbors next door would move out, but it looks like I am going to have to move which sucks.

Everyone ages and so there is no need to sweat it.  I just am thankful I have another birthday to experience.

As my husband says, "It beats the alternative."  Sometimes, though, I look back and realize I am happy to be where I am now.  I would not like to have to go through some of the stages of my life when I was younger and stupid.  I am retired and have a wonderful husband, daughter, son-in-law, and the smartest and cutest four-year-old grandson in the world.  Through all the aches and pains and wrinkles of old age, I have a family to love and who loves me, and that is the greatest feeling ever.

I do not like getting old physically at all. I really have a hard time adjusting to gray hair. I don't mind being mentally older though.

Well I can tell you that my golden years are starting to look abit rusty.  Not what I thought they'd be. To many aches and pains.

Like they say " age is only a number".  I feel very fortunate and blessed to have lived as long as I have.  I still am pretty active at 74, with volunteering, playing piano, singing in a women's choir and of course the housework!!
