Are you afraid of it? Will you fight it?

We ALL begin aging from the moment we are born. As a society, there are now more middle-aged and older than there are youth. Does getting older scare you, or fill you with dread? Are you, or will you, fight it every step of the way, or accept it gracefully?
 
Do you, or will you color your hair, get plastic surgery, etc. or will you let aging gradually and gracefully take its toll on your body and mind? We will ALL age. We will ALL get older. Even the youth, that laugh at those older and THINK that they are invincible, will eventually age.
 
People are living longer and there are many healthy, vigorous, goodlooking and fit who will stay that way into their 70’s, 80’s and even 90’s. It seems to be, not only what they do to take care of themselves, but their mind set and their attitude about life and living. Of course, genetics also plays a part.

But even if you exercise, eat right, and get plastic surgery, AGE will still overcome eventually… that is if you are lucky enough to live long. Taking care of yourself, will certainly keep you looking and feeling better longer and that is a good thing.  

But, will you accept aging as it creeps in and takes its hold or will you hold it at bay? Does it scare you or will you accept it?

There is nothing more beautiful than a person of age whose wisdom, experience and joy shine through their face and eyes and if you add to that a well-maintained body and spirit. What a gift these people are to themselves and to others.

Yet aging marches on ….

Myself?   I am fighting it tooth and nail,  hand and fist.. but, of course, KNOW, that eventually I will need to and will accept it. At times, aging makes me a bit fearful.. but I wonder, as time goes on, will the fear diminish as acceptance takes over?

Is it scary or is it interesting? Are you afraid of it? Or do you accept it?
