Live Like Somebody Left the Gate Open

Real Estate Agent with

   It's so hard to mentally accept this "old age" concept.  Intellectually I know I'm a senior but emotionally and even physically, I don't feel older than I did in my 40's.  

I should be starting to wind down as far as work interests go but I'm not.  Technology is so stinking interesting, I wish that I was 40 so I would get to see all the cool stuff that is still to come.  You youngsters are so fortunate to be preparing yourselves for a huge adventure.

 I do look at the earth and worry that things are not going well but I have to think that some of our young geniuses will get it together and figure out how to keep the world turning and as glorious as it is now.  Still, that's a bit worrisome.

 But, from the eyes of a senior, the future is going to be more amazing than I can imagine and I envy you young people.  I hope you realize how much fun you are going to have. Even though I won't have as much time as you will, I'm going to squeeze every possible ounce of knowledge into that time and enjoy every possible minute.

 How many of you "seniors" are with me?

Hi Patricia,  I share your beautiful thoughts and love the picture.  I just mentioned to a friend lately that on Monday i went out of warranty and on Wednesday things started to come loose, rip, tear and not work so well anymore !!!

Patricia - I am supposed to be past my "use by date", but don't you believe that I have to slow down. Limitations tend to placed by others. For my first five years of school I wrote on a piece of rock - a slate.  An 8 yo grandaughter goes off to school with her iPad2. Your hope for the future will be realized. I aim to live forever; so far so good.

I have to agree with Larry, we put our own restrictions on ourselves at times and no need to!   Live life like your pup!    Only look forward!

Thanks for the comments. It's good to hear that y'all (sorry but I'm from the south) agree and understand.
