I am getting old

Yes, that is my hair dye currently in my hair. If you look closely, you will see that it says that it will cover 100% of my gray. Sad. I remember the days of looking for temporary dyes instead of these permanent gray-root camoflaugers!

I have to face the facts. I am getting old(er). My body doesn’t quite work the same way it did even 5 years ago. Conversations with friends begin with, “What did the doctor say?” and “Does your back still hurt?”

Instead of focusing on the downward spiral, let’s take a look at the positives, shall we?

– I have a few decades worth of fashion to choose from.

– I know what I want to be when I grow up.

– I get offered help more often.

– I have a big story database.

– I have learned lots of jokes.

– My wrinkles are indications of all of my smiles I have had over the years.

– My gray hairs match my pale skin.

– I can offer first-hand advice because I have been there/done that.

I guess getting older has its perks!

Are you feeling like you are getting old? What are some positives that you can add to my list?
