As You Get Older

Can we age without getting old?

Fall hiking in Glacier
Hiking Highline Trail next to Haystack Butte, back in September. Age should not have us wondering if we can or cannot hike through mountain trails.

 

Yesterday’s workout was a great reminder of how being relatively pain-free is one of our bests gifts to ourselves.

i’m “nursing” a shoulder pain that came out of nowhere. It’s likely brought on from repetitive overuse, or from some of the new exercises i’m doing.

As we age and lead less active lifestyles, our muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, cardiovascular system, skin, tissue and so on becomes worn with use and disuse.

No One Will Remember The Risks We Took 90 Days Ago

Real Life In Real Time, January 1, 2012 (90 days ago)

Watching these young women play their hearts out on the soccer field during the holidays reminds me of a lesson learned long ago. Champions are made, not born. In athletics. In anything. Bank on it.

The long way is the short cut. And the most important skills the girls learn are not athletic. Never forget that.

Aging Is Natural And Unstoppable And How We Age Is Largely Our Personal Choice

Aging is natural and unstoppable. How we age is largely our choice.

Getting old should never catch any midlife Baby Boomer off guard. We don’t stop doing things because we get old. We get old because we stop doing things.

Why We Get Old

“We don’t stop doing things because we get old.  We get old because we stop doing things”. — unknown

There is good reason for staying active.  It’s so we don’t get “old”.

Our mind has an instrument that measures our belief system.  It’s pass or fail – it’s the quote above.

It’s up to you and I to make our choice.  Always has been.  Always will be.  Carpe diem!  🙂
