Today, I am going to talk about aging. I am an expert! (80 something)
It is so hard once we reach the “golden,” years. Things slow down. Not just in the world, but in your body.
I try to walk as much as I can, but things aren’t going in my direction.
Yesterday, I decided to go on a short walk on my own street, which is a Cul-de-Sac. I did the first trip around, and headed for my second. I got about half way and suddenly realized I had rubbery legs for some reason.
It got worse quickly. I started wavering like a drunken sailor. I was afraid I was going to fall. I struggled big time to finish.
I made it back into the house and crashed at my desk. It took me a long time to recuperate.
What was going on?
I was getting older, and the tent I am living in was getting leaks!
This frightened me big time. Do I need to make funeral preparations?
I just need to accept that I can only do what I can do. I shouldn’t try to stretch my abilities beyond what I can do.
I am not going to stop walking, but I will start out at a shorter distance and work my way up to longer walks.
Do you have this same problem? Is age creeping up on you, and you are really feeling it? You certainly are not alone. The majority of humans on this earth are getting up in years.
I have been thinking hard laterly. (It is giving me a headache.)
Why am I fighting old age? I should embrace the days God is giving me.
I saw a great acronym the other day. Instead of TGIF, It should be TGIT Thank God it’s today. We need to thank God for every day He is giving us, and not worry about how things seem to be getting very tough for us to do.
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all…never, ever, give up!
