Dear friends,

In my humble opinion each of us are only as old as we feel...

...You're only as old as you feel so they say ;)
...Age does not always determine ones mental age :p
...Youth can have a burdened heart of aged worries while the elderly can rejoice in a youthful spirit that delights :D.


love ladybird luv

:? Oh Ladybird! What a question!!!

In body... old... very, very... very old! :(

In emotions... multiple ages... because my memories throw me back and forth through time with stops all over the place so I
" feel" how I did at the memory time... not necessarily today time! :?

In spirit ... I feel middle aged. Like I know some important information about life, but not yet enough to be done. :)

As for my actual age... Shhhhhhhh :0: I'll never tell!!! :D

Interesting question :)

Physically - past my 'best before' date. ;)
Mentally - old enough to have accumulated lots of knowledge and young enough to want to keep learning! :D:
Emotionally - a work in progress :^
Spiritually - been around forever :p

How old are you Ladybird?

WOW!! grrreat responses from you both (((Lion))) & (((Mammy)))
As for my actual age...Shhhhhhhh :^ I'll never tell!!! :D
...ditto...I like to be mysterious when it comes to my actual age...a girls gotta have some secrets after all...LOL!! ;)

...what I will reveal though is that while I consider myself young at heart mentally, physically my aching shoulder keeps reminding me I'm no spring chicken either...

I'm 14 years old.

Delving deeper, I've often wondered how old I really am, spiritually, mentally...

To say how old I am in those two areas would be trying to shoot a moving target.

All I can say is that I'm learning, and that for me, no age is old enough to stop that! :P

I will think more on this question - it is an interesting one indeed.

A very good friend of mine was joking with me once. We were talking to each other in a poetic, Shakesperian like fashion - having a grand old time. We came up with this quote

Is it not rare to be young mentally...and old physically?
Or rarer still; to be old mentally, and young physically?



I admit, it doesn't make a lot of sense if it's not put into context, but I thought it would be interesting to add that here.[/i]

Actually Darkie I think your quote makes buckets of sense! :)
I am meeting more and more and more young people like you who are so obviously 'old souls' :D
It really makes me feel positive about the future of the world :cool:
But, it can be a tough position to be in - feeling as old as the stars but with very few candles on your cake - because you still have to go through the process of physical, mental and emotional growth!
I know - I was that soldier a very, very, very long time ago :)

Now: I'm studying for my medical exam
Time: 5am
Age: today is my 20th birthday
Family: an ocean away.... so no parties for me

I am stuck to celebrate my birthday with learning a few things about heart attack; and being alone. All my frenz are having exam as well.

Your thoughts made me reflect on my stance in life right now( and I need a break from the books^.^).
I love my study, but this day is one of a minor put-off of being me.
Today I feel really old, no more teenage life. But I feel relief somehow, 20 is an end to my past life chapter. A whole number. I know in a week's time I will be young again, because I finish my exam. and then celebrate all summer.

One thing about being older, you become (obviously) wiser. When you are wiser, you tend to allow life and people to take its course without feeling angry or sad or hateful. In other words, we tend to forgive n let go of the bad things that life or people may do-that may make you unhappy-as we age.

For me.......Aging is accepting

Sweet life,
Pierre

HAPPY BRITHDAY PIERRE :p :p ;b ;b

My son was 20 this day last month.

Know that, even if they are very far away, your family is thinking of you and your mother is recalling this day 20 years ago when you arrived into her world :) :) :)

Sending you many blessings and good luck wishes for you exams :D:
