Random Thoughts About Aging

What do you think about getting older? Do you fight it? "I don't want to get older?" Do you embrace it? "Today will be an awesome day!" When you think about the aging process, does it make you proud to have survived this long? It's time to celebrate aging, let's go dancing!

"My computer screen says I need to upgrade my brain to be compatible with the latest software."

Do something today that's outside of your normal routine.  Maybe it's a bit wild.  Maybe your friends will say you are crazy.  Do it anyway.  In fact, do something that makes you feel like a child again.

First you forget names, then you forget faces. Then you forget to pull up your zipper, then . . . "Oh my goodness! You forgot to pull your zipper down first!"
