Posted in attitude, In Other Words (Quotes), old age, someone said

Old is as old does…

“There’s nothing I can do about it.”
Jeralean Talley
Her reply when asked about her secret for living to be 116 years old.

I have to agree with Ms Talley, there is nothing we can do about getting older.
Tomorrow I will be a day older than I am today
and on my birthday next year I will be a year older than I was was this year.
Nothing I can do about it except to die and I have no plans for that just yet.
If something happens and I do die there’s nothing I can do about that either.

Anyway, like I said, I agree with old Jeralean,
but I do think we can choose not to be “old”.

It doesn’t matter how old we get we can choose to enjoy
where we are, what we are doing, and maybe for the first time, who we are.
We can choose to tell corny jokes and play poker,
laugh at ourselves and cry watching sad movies,
do crossword puzzles and play computer games.
We can be outspoken and a bit outrageous,
comfortable wearing what we want fashionable or not,
say no to what we don’t like or want, take long naps.
and not feel guilty about doing nothing but daydreaming.

 It doesn’t matter how old we get even if we live to be over 100
we can live and love, happy with our memories and making new ones.
We can share our wisdom with young people
and learn new things from them..

Age is just a number and after awhile you can just make up a number.
Who’s to argue with you?
I mean, maybe Ms Talley is really 118
