Age is a question of mind over matter ;-)

“Age is a question of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”

Mark Twain


From http://www.cartoonaday.com

There are two types of people
You’ll find in this world;
Those that grow young,
And those that grow old.
The old growing type,
Are not very much fun,
They become quite inactive,
Avoiding hot sun.
They complain of misfortunes
Like bad backs and poor stocks,
And soon they need help
With their food and their socks.
But the young growing type
Are a different affair,
They grow ever more fun,
Despite sticks and grey hair.
No longer tied down
To their work every day,
They see their retirement
As a great time to play.
They jet off on adventures,
And plan fun-filled days,
And never become
At all set in their ways.

You don’t stop having fun because you get old,
you get old because you stop having fun

  2. This poem I read earlier in the day O. It has a lot in it. I would like to think I am growing young.
