They say "Age is just a number." I say, "Baloney!" Everyone is different. We all have diverse strengths and weaknesses. We all have varied health concerns. In my opinion, it is NOT all in attitude and positive thinking, either. Some consideration must be given to the genes; some to the the lifestyle. There are tons of factors as to how we feel, how we act, how we cope. Currently age has crept up on us both, but in different ways.
Right now we just want to feel safe, comfortable, as independent and self-sufficient as possible, and able to meet our ever-changing needs. There is so much that we were able to do in the past that we are now not able to do - at all! That is frustrating. We have finally come to the conclusion that we need helpers.
When we were younger, for some unknown reason we were not at all savvy enough to consider the importance of hearing aids, eyeglasses. dental needs, and contraptions to help with all other physical situations. There was no organization or preparation of finances for future needs. Heck, it was all we ever could do to pay bills, but we are totally debt free and are able to keep up with these today. So far... We don't have many other options but to live one day at a time.
We've had a busy past with many enjoyable times and those will always remain in our memory. Some don't have even that. No negatives are going to spoil all of our positives!! Carrying on......
I will be in the same situation someday my self! Keep saying yes to life and living each day to the fullest however you can!ReplyDelete
