Is aging really that bad? Ya gotta a choice?
Yes it is really bad but …
Be pragmatic, be realistic..aging is the pits…it’s a constant battle, you against the debilitation and deterioration of your body as it ages and falls apart.
You can slow the battle with good nutrition, good living, moderation everywhere, exercise and some common sense well-being processes. Still it’s a losing battle.
Should you whine about it, lament it? Be my guest. Whine and lament as much as you want…won’t matter…the process continues. You can make the battle one where you fight with dignity, with a goal of slowing the process, with courage that may result in tiny little victories. They’re temporary. You can slow the process but you can’t stop it.
Think positively while in the struggle. Your mental attitude may be more important than your physical one. Think positively, think optimistically, and think well and you will slow the defeats. Hang around younger people, even if they’re just younger in attitude and you will hold the sword better. Be aware of how you live, daily, emotionally, physically, and nutritionally and again the sword will be held with a stronger grip. It’s a battle but it’s one where you can go down fighting or you can go down crying. You choose. The white flag isn’t in my scabbard…yet.
