Act your Age

Posted on July 1st, 2009 by by Solanova

What is that line from the classic Aerosmith song Dream on?  Every time that I look in the mirror.  All these lines in my face gettin’ clearer… Sound familiar?  Lately I’ve been spending a lot of time scrutinizing every line and wrinkle and cursing the inevitable; growing older.  These days I vastly prefer candlelit dinners to well-lit brunches and wish it didn’t cost a small fortune to buy creams and potions to plump up my fine lines.  If only there was another way.

At the same time, I’m not a fan of unnecessary pain.  And therefore I’m not willing to do anything invasive to make myself look five or even ten years younger.  So now what?  I pondered my predicament for a long time.  Why was I so upset?  It seemed completely ridiculous and wasteful to spend my time lamenting about something I had no control over.  Then I finally asked myself, what is really important in life?  The answer came swiftly: being healthy, feeling good about myself, helping others and trying to make the world a half-way pleasant place to live.  Oh yeah, and strawberry ice cream on a hot day.

And I discovered something else rather amazing.  It turns out that I actually like being the age I am.  I didn’t want to be twenty-one, wondering who I was and what I was going to do with my life.  I’ve learned a few things in all the years since, and I’d be loath to give that wisdom up.

Then I came up with a plan.  Instead of wasting valuable time and energy with all my misguided worries about aging, I could instead spend more time with friends and family, read the classics, make healthy food and supplement choices, and seek out fun stuff to do.  And then something magical would happen.  I would look great, feel much happier and maybe, just maybe, capture some of that elusive youthful charm and energy, naturally.

Wouldn’t that be something?
