Am I Old Yet?

maureen

I just turned 62.  Am I old now?  I remember when 62 meant you had a foot in the grave, or maybe both.  The worst thing about being 62 is that 63 will be here in a blink of an eye.  Years move faster now, unlike me, and there is nothing anyone can do to slow down the passing of years.

Remember how long it took to go from Kindergarten to eighth grade?  EONS!

Four years of high school……eternity!

My twenties took forever….which is good because my twenties were

 A W E S O M E !

Soon however, things sped up.  My Mother told me that once you have kids, time means nothing, and after that, years just fly by.  She was right.

I imagine that we are all traveling on a huge conveyor belt marked with our decades.  I have passed the one marked “60”, I hope I will pass up “70” also.  Unfortunately, I can’t see the end of my conveyor belt, but maybe that’s good.

    By the time you turn 70 (which I just did in Feb) you won’t remember your 60’s . . . or 50’s . . . or 40’s – Time goes faster the slower the memory goes! That’s my theory.

    • I’m pretty sure not seeing the end is a good thing. Yep…we don’t need yhat view, I’m afraid of falling.

      The years do seem to go by in a flash…and I never had kids. I swear I went from 25 to 40…with very little time between there. Now I’m in my 50’s…I hope I can remember them with some fondness.

      My 40s. Well….I may have been my sickest, but I also had my happiest moments…I guess it evened out.

      Thanks for reminding me of that.

      Happy Belated Birthday! xoxo
