How old/young do you feel?
I feel more like someone in the late 20s to early 30s. No way do I feel forty something.
I like being my age...I like knowing what I know and also having the experience not to get involved in bullshit and drama...I am way more relaxed and accepting of many things and yet I fight like a pitbull when I feel it is needed...I am more conscientious about diet and exercise now than ever, so I do feel better physically than I think a lot of people my age feel...I enjoy the journey and will do all I can to embrace each year...I can do that if I feel good and healthy at least. To answer your question, I feel 64.
Amen no pun intended! I am the same way I turn 57 on the 21st ot this month. I am at the gym lifting weights 3 times a week, on the treadmill or jogging track 4 or 5 times week. I stay up every night to 12:00 - 12:30 and rise at 6:30. I look around at others my age and think what the hell are you doing you look and act 70. It's all about what you do with you body @graceylou! Stay active and stay young!
When I was young I always felt like an old man mentally. I suspect the older I get the younger I'll continue to mentally feel. Im just about at equilibrium so I pretty much feel my age. Very mature in some ways, but still full of piss n vinegar in others. I believe it was dylan who said "I was old then, Im younger now."
When I feel healthy then I don't care about how I look and when I have energy, days are short because I have plenty of crazy ideas on how to use my time. On a bad day, it all boils down to not having energy and that takes the fun out of everything. Bottom line, for me age is not relevant... it is how much energy I have to spend.
I feel like I'm 17. Not in energy but in experiences. Being shut in by my religious parents up until a few years ago put me behind empty walls and never really know how the world REALLY worked. Now I'm paying for it and the best thing I can do is move on and not feel angry about it.
In my early 30s but from a responsibility perspective, I feel like i m in my 40s/50s ... It's as if Chapel the Evergreen's quote "Life is an incessant series of problems... all difficult, with brutally limited choices... and a time limit" becomes more real by the minute.
