How Old Is A Senior

When some people reach 50 they are suddenly terrified of being ‘over the hill’.

In their mind they feel that life is almost over for them. Others reach the age of 80 and wonder how they got there and how come they don’t feel a day older than 40 or 50, and will they have time to do all the things they still want to do?

I submit it is all in your ‘head’ or mind. You are as old as you want to feel or be or act. There is no set time when your life is going to end, and there is no set time when you should stop doing all the things you always did, provided you are physically able and coherent. Those are things we cannot control whether we be a senior or a junior. However, many people have not been stopped by seeming insurmountable afflictions.

I knew a great old lady who lived in three centuries [1899-2000] to the age of 101 and managed her own home until the third century that she lived in and when asked how she did it, she would reply with vehemence, “Stay away from them old people”. This is very sage and sound advice.

Many seniors of 50 simply stop going forward and even degress into the past. The past is a good place to learn about the future but one needs to heed those lessons and move forward into the furure. They know all about the things that were invented in the past but learn nothing about the inventions of today.

To spend time with these people is actually depressing and should be avoided.

One of the biggest advancements in the last 50 years is the computer. Many seniors saw it is the future and quickly learned to adapt to it while they were still young seniors. That is not to say they could not learn it when the reached 60 or 70 or 80 or beyond. Many seniors do not seemingly know their actual age and continue to act as though there is no tomorrow. They are mastering the compupter and going on to make a living marketing online. They will live for a very long time because they are truly ‘alive’ every day of their life.

For those who are not truly alive, try getting a computer, or a cell phone or a DVD player or any one or more of all the new products available today and get involved and market yourself somewhere, or to someone. Tell the world!
