“Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”
“A man growing old becomes a child again.”
On Sunday night my whole family had an amazing dinner at my Dad’s house. There was a tornado warning and as a result, the power went out. We sat in the candle light eating cake and trying out the age booth app on the iPhone.
I was the first of the table to take have my picture taken and travel 30 years time to see what I will look like in 2042. Here is the result:
Upon seeing this photo, I screamed. At first, I laughed a little, but that laughter suddenly turned to tears and horror. I think I kept saying, “no, no!”
There is no way that when I am 56 years old, I will look that much like an old grandma, will I?
After that whole experience, I vow to take better care of my skin. Eat more anti-oxidants. Get enough sleep. Exercise regularly. And have a sense of humor about myself. Maybe I shouldn’t take the way I look SO seriously.
