What are your thoughts on aging? How will you stay young at heart as you get older?
I actually don’t mind aging, it’s inevitable. I plan on just going with the flow, if I age, I age. If I don’t, I don’t (never going to happen). I have always admired old people just because when they do something like cooking, writing on paper or sewing, it’s so beautiful. Most old people are so sure at what they do, every action so intricately done over and over again. I envy them because I don’t have the wisdom that they possess, wisdom that comes with old age. I’m still pretty young, I am almost always so unsure of what I have wanted to do, the uncertainty of my actions always show in most of the things that I have done that I can’t wait to be certain. I think certainty comes with old age and on that note I guess I have to wait a long time before I possess the “right” wisdom to be experienced and sure of almost everything I do.
I don’t have a plan on staying young at heart, because I think that I am young at heart. Hopefully when I have children I can tell them the stories or show them my favourite things when I was young and if the young ones are happy from the things I share with them, I guess I’ll be happy and feel young at heart too because I somehow connected something very old to someone young. I think this idea would make me feel and stay young at heart.
I’m a fan of Frank Sinatra and I thought this song kind of puts into words how I feel about being young at heart.
