“Don’t be angry with children, you’ve come along the same way. Don’t laugh at old people; you’d go to the same way.”
Another beautiful Monday! It's 7AM here...the sun is up and I still have to put on my sunscreen! ;) They say one of the key to aging gracefully is sunscreen!
Fun Monday this week is hosted by the ever graceful Sayre!
Her assignment for us is --
Using your imagination, project into the future and tell me what you will be like as an 80-year old. Will you be someone who doesn't accept the aging process, spending all your time in the gym and the bars, or will you be a rocking chair granny, or something in between?
This is a topic I always love to talk about to friends...yet now that I'm given the chance to talk about it here my mind seem to go blank the moment my fingers touch the keyboard!
Anyway...here is my third attempt to make a meaningful post...and not talk about sunscreen! LOL
If there is one thing I look forward to, it is my old age! There I said it. I look forward to the days when I am 80 and beyond!
But just how do I see myself many years from now? Well for sure I won't be that old lady wearing purple with a red hat! LOL
I want to age gracefully. You read that? I want to age gracefully. So just what I mean by that? And how do I achieve that? There is such a thing as The Art of Aging Gracefully right?
You see I came from a family who seem to live through old-age. My grandmother (mother side) is still alive..and she is turning 90 this December! And guess what, she can still walk without any help of stick or anyone! She can still walk clearly in the dark...prepare her meals and carry a conversation with me about my past vacations at the farm! More than anything, she still look the same as I can remember...except that white hair. A proof to that is, she has always been a size 4! My grandmother is never fond of cosmetics! She has not gone to the gym ever nor dig yoga class but she has been in the farm most of her life. Hmmm.
Anyway that is how I want to be when I get old. I want to be healthy...in all aspects of it. I don't see anything wrong with exercise yet with how unmotivated I am with going to the gym I don't think I'll hit that place. But I'm sure I'd be spending most of my time in the garden. I think I will still do my morning stretching and yoga. And I will spend my morning sipping coffee with the IT Guy and we will watch sunrise together from our porch! Every weekend we go visit our children and grandchildren we tell them tales about us and their parents and we go home with photos and memories with them and blog about them for Fun Monday! Ha!
Memories...even of those yet to come is always a nice way to start one's week. Please visit Sayre for more!
Wishing you all a Fun Monday,
