Y is for young…

colorful-1313027_640is for young


Youth is a wonderful time of life.
It is when there is natural freshness and purity of spirit.
It is the beginning of who you will be.

Youth doesn’t last long.
You begin to lose it the moment you are born.
Aging, growing old, is part of the process of living.

However, growing old does not mean you can’t be young.
Being young has less to do with age than it does with attitude.
The body gets old but the person inhabiting it can be young.

It is your choice.
You can be a miserable old fogey stick-in-the-mud if you want.
Or you can get on with life, be a bit eccentric, laugh and enjoy the journey,

You can’t stop the years or the impermanence of youth.
You can remain young at heart and in thoughts.
All you need is a sense of humor, determination, and love.

Be someone who is forever young.

  1. I agree that humor is huge, as is an ability to not develop tunnel vision. People get entrenched and they stop growing. Kiss of death to staying youthful!

  2. Young at heart. A favorite film of mine with Doris Day and Frank Sinatra crooning its theme song. A sense of humor is a gift from above. It’s the thing I most like about myself. And the best way to fight not being a stick-in-the-mud. We are approaching Z. Sigh.

    1. I am also happy that I am blessed with a sense of humor. No way we will be miserable old women. Tomorrow is Z-day but it is not the end writing for me.
