The tribe of grey haired bespectacled grandmas is fast disappearing and a new one has emerged, graceful, elegant women, combining the incomparable beauty of years of experience with positive outlook on the future.
Old age can be depressing only if you have nothing worthwhile to contribute to the great adventure of living. One cannot survive if one does not take responsibility seriously, but certainly not to the exclusion of the fun and laughter that contribute to the joyous living.
If we do not pull our self out of the morass of apathy and self pity they steals upon us as we grow older, we are destined to be the sad causality that litter life’s path, the dreary ones that add no lustre to the beautiful experience that is living
Caught between beginnings and endings, one must venture into the unknown. There are immense possibilities ahead. The potential is there, it is for us to use it as it should be. The wise ones, the caring ones, will reach outwards, discovering new adventures and more heights to scale, so wake up and take up the challenge that life offers. For, to survive in a growing world, we must use all our resources and make the autumn of our life a great golden dream.
Keep your warmth and your sense of humour and you radiate a special incandescence that keep people flocking around you. Do not be afraid to grow up. But refuse to grow old.
Walking down memory lane we could still relieve laughter and the tears, the joy and the sorrows, the triumphs and travails that made up the years- from callow of youth to serene maturity.
Are we not the lucky one?
