As different as we are in many respects of our lives, what we all share is the fact that we are getting older every day.
Do you feel the passage of time acutely at the moment?
Is ageing an issue for you?
How do you deal with getting older?
Aging is very much on my mind lately. I have a birthday looming in a few days, that has affected me like no other so far has. It feels momentuous (or ominous on worse days).
My older son has his first communion this week (a big deal if you are in a Catholic school) and this also drives home how fast time has passed since my children were born.
The past decade is a blur. When I was twenty, or thirty even, time seemed to be on a different pace, it has sped up in a way that is a bit alarming.
In many ways I feel no different than twenty or thirty years ago, although in many others I have learned a lot and changed with the circumstances of my life.
I’d like to talk with you about practical aspects of getting older (Hey there, wrinkles!) as well as the more intangible ones (Wisdom! Wisdom?).
How do you feel about getting older? What has changed for you? Are you happy with your age? What was the age you were the happiest at in hindsight?
