Is that a stupid question?
Some people would say, yes it is, of course I want to keep having fun?
Thousands, maybe millions, would say something like this
(1) “What do you mean, havin’ fun? I’m old and don’t expect to be able to do all the fun things I used to.”
(2) “Well, that sounds ridiculous to me, ‘having fun’ I’m not a child any more, when you get older you’re not as healthy and don’t have the energy to do much.”
(3) “My father didn’t do much when he got older so why should I, it’s more sensible to just sit around, take things easy and watch the grandkids play.”
(4) “When you’re older you can’t expect to enjoy your life like you used to, everyone knows that it’d be unrealistic to expect to have fun at our age!”
(5) “We older people should keep out of the way, stay in the background and let the younger generation enjoy their lives.”
(6) “As a young lad I did it all, surfing, water skiing, hiking, swimming, but now I’m old and can’t see myself doing anything like that anymore. That’s just the way life is, you just have to accept it.”
My wife hates this word
But I’ll live dangerously and use it anyway! The theory that we have to slow down, stop doing things we love, sit around and do nothing IS … TOTALLY… (here’s comes that word !) ...WRONG!!!! Wrong!!! WRONG!!!
Results of studies done by specialists on the subject of Aging, indicate…
People that live their lives with PASSION, keep up some form of EXERCISE (whether it be walking, lawn bowls, riding a bicycle or exercise classes at your local community centre), and have a fairly HEALTHY DIET tend to live longer than people that are totally inactive.
Ok, here goes, you’ve probably heard me say this before, but some things are SO important you can’t say them too many times.
Most of the time I forget how old I am?
Well, I don’t actually forget but when someone asks me how old I am, I say I’m 66, which is true, but that’s the only time I really think about my age.
It kinda shocks me when I hear myself say it! 66, holy crap!
Nine times out of 10, the person that asks me my age, says BS when I say how old I am.
I truly believe most of us can live to a ripe old age, (makes us sound like a piece of fruit!) in good health, with lots of energy and a life filled with fun.
