“Come Dance With Me”

“The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it and join the dance.”-Alan W. Watts

As I  search for answers to my own questions about getting older. I wondered why no one my age wanted to talk about it. Some would simple say, you’re only as old as you feel. Well it’s true, I mean when I hear an oldie but goody on the radio and I start to be-bopping around like nobody’s business. Next thing ya know my hip is out of whack, and I find myself having to take a time out for a few days till I can move around normal again. That is as normal as a 65 year old can. Oh I don’t want to say it like that. I sound like my mother who was always saying, “Well you know I am in my 60’s now.”

“That’s not old,” I’d tell her.

So now when I go away with my girls and they want me to go dancing with them they say come on Mom, live it up, and I have to bite my lip from saying the same thing my Mom did. Instead, I did go out with them, and I did live it up, and I did have a great time because I still can. All I want to do is embrace this stage of my life, but I don’t understand what that means. That got me thinking that maybe no one wants to talk about it because they don’t know what it means either. What I do know is that I want to live the best life I can with the years I have left to enjoy it. So, I thought I’d share with you the answers I find to my questions.

Maybe you’d like to come dance with me along the way. Maybe together we can figure out how to live the best life we can with what we got. As I said to a friend the other day, two heads are better then one, and who wants to dance alone, that’s no fun.

    1. I have friends who are much older than me who say, “oh you’re just a baby.” It kind of makes me feel good to be consider young in anyway. So I say to you your only a baby yet. But the truth is that we don’t just wake up old one day. Aging is a process that happens over time and that’s why I think we’re only as old as we think we are. It’s funny as I read your blog my Dad said the same thing about still feeling inside like he was the same young person he’d always been.
