I am, young, happy and energetic………
Let us run the risk of wearing out rather than rusting out.
Today I have found that young ladies and kids around started to greet me more in a formal way. Such a curious and weird think for me. Because on one hand My mind is asking for politeness of “experienced person” on the other hand my heart is shouting for “please people keep making mistakes with my age. Please call me girl not Miss or Lady”.
An anytime age is just relative. I know that. But always it is matter of feeling. I really dislike our Czech mentality, because especially our women event they look soo good until high age, they underestimate themselves. One of my friends just told me story. She is 57, body like 20 years old girl and her mind is perfectly vital too. She and her friends were having sauna with the swimming pool outside and because it was dark already they could not see anybody outside.
All of the sudden they heard breaking sound of wood and after many swearing words fall to their ears. Yeah some guy was observing them from tree and fall down. And you know. Instead of saying that this guy did something bad. They were happy of it with words: “Look we are so old and ugly, but for somebody worths to climb up the tree”!
Oh I was ashamed of it. I told them, why they are talking like that. I would love to be in their shape at that age. I would love to be so active and smiley as they are. I told them my experience from Latin America. That women over there are not that much in a good shape like our women. But they appreciate themselves much more. They do not say words like that. On the other hand they support each other much more, they appreciate if somebody looks good, they tell you if you have nice hair cut, nice dress, if you smile nicely. They let you know.
And I have learned to share the same culture.
The result is that: Since you do appreciate much more the others you start to appreciate yourself more too. You start to feel better, look better and live better life. Simply you start to be full of positive energy rather than pessimism, jealousness and anxiety of age.
