The Angst of Aging

As I get nearer to the big 40, I began to re-evaluate many aspects of my life and what it consists of. Several one-liners invoke the words, "That is so true of me" to reverberate through my inner core. I’d like to share some of them with you.

"Insanity is my only means of relaxation."

"My mind not only wanders; sometimes it leaves completely."

"There is always a lot to be thankful for, if you take the time to look. For example, I’m sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don’t hurt."

"God put me on earth to accomplish a certain number of things. Right now I’m so far behind, I will live forever."

"It’s frustrating when you know all the answers but nobody bothers to ask you the questions."

"When I finally got my head together, my body fell apart."

"Time may be a great healer, but it’s also a lousy beautician."

"The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight because by then your body and your fat are really good friends."

"Age doesn’t always bring wisdom. Sometimes age comes alone."

"Sometimes I think I understand everything, then I regain consciousness."

"It is bad to suppress laughter. It goes back down and spreads to your hips."

"Seen it all, done it all, can’t remember most of it."

But then again, isn’t aging a mental state of mind? Tell yourself that when that dang crow starts to leave its footprints on your face and you look as though you need to iron your face. Enjoy your youth while you still have it. Happy days to you!
