Gosh! I have grey hair. Yes, I repeat, I have grey hair. Not one but few. *sad*
I used to think I am blessed with lustrous black locks but not any more. Does it mean that age is catching up with me???
No one invent a portion of youth yet, where once we drink it, we will stay young forever. I guess I have to admit that nothing stop in time. Wish I could reserve the time, but alas! I am enjoying my life as I should be at my age. Not many people can live to my age. Some old classmates or friends I know have left this world young. Not living to fullest, some not able to see their kids grow up.
So as I age, I learn to appreciate life more. I take things easily instead of doing many things in a short time. No more rushing, but more planning on what to do and when. Planning my time properly so I would not waste it.
I am kinder to myself and others around me. I used to nag a lot and easily irritated but I am giving it a "comma" and trying to slow things down. I learn to love my family more. I also learn to love myself more. I learn to appreciate others. I learn to Enjoy food more than I do and do things that I want to do. I know somewhere out there, some people are not that lucky or even live to see things that I can see, do things that I can do and live the life that I want to. Some parts of life is just better be forgotten and important life should be cherished and remembered.
So in conclusion, I like being old although I do not like the things (grey hair, fine wrinkles, sagging breast and more) that go with it. Well, just have to accept the fact and make the best out of it. No one can be immortal forever right?*wink* I am happy to count my blessings as the day goes by.
