The following is an excerpt from Dick VanDyke's book "Keep Moving". I think you'll like what it says..
Aging is a fact of life, getting old, is not !
The following is a quote from"Mahatma Gandhi"
"A man is but the product of his thoughts.
What he thinks, he becomes."
Okay..I know our bodies change as we age, but keeping your thoughts on new and exciting things
help to keep that youthful attitude, and a joy of life.. Read what Dick VanDyke has to say about age !!!
"You shouldn't have to act your age. You do not even need to feel it.
And if it does try to elbow it's approach into your life, you should not have to concentrate.
If I'm out shopping
and listen to music taking part in a shop, I begin to dance. If I need to sing, I sing.
I read books and get facinated
with the new IDEAS. I eperience myself. I do not take into accounts the way in which I'm supposed to act at my age - or at any age. So far as I do know, there's no manual for old age. There's no check it's a must to pass There's
no approach it's a must to behave. There's no such thing as 'age suitable'.
When other people ask my secret
to staying youthful at any age when getting up and down out of your chair by yourself is thought of as an accomplishment, you understand what I tell them?
(wise words from this 90 year old!)

"This is the day the Lord has made I will rejoice and be glad in it"...Pslam 118:24
I like being older, it's when what you look like becomes less and less an issue and what
you ARE is the point !'
