They say age is nothing but a number and a state of mind.
I now call myself old.
I googled ‘you know you’re old when quotes’, and received many different results.
buzzfeed.com has a list 56 Signs That You’re Definitely Getting Old(er) that includes the following –
You consider going to the post office as a “busy weekend.”
Crowded places easily frustrate you.
You wake up early on days you can sleep in.
You get teary-eyed during wedding scenes in movies.
You cannot believe people were born in the 2000s.
The celebrities at the Kids’ Choice Awards are complete strangers to you.
You just like to sit down sometimes.
Yes, I now call myself old. But it is just a state of mind, right?
My son #3’s birthday is today; he is 30 years old today. I remember when he and my other ‘boys’ were born, then toddlers and preschoolers; and I remember when they were teenagers. It does not seem long ago, they were going to school, playing soccer and marching in the high school marching band. Time continues on, never stopping for any reason and then one day the younger one; son #3 turns 30 years old. Yes, I now call myself old.
When I turned 30 only 26 years ago, I remember feeling middle aged. I can remember feeling good about my life, my age and looking forward to what life had to offer. Fast forward and now all my sons are in their 30s, I wonder how they feel about that? I have not asked them how they feel about being in their 30s; I would be curious to know.
I realize age is nothing but a number and a state of mind. But, I now call myself old.
I do consider going anywhere on any day a busy day and crowded places do frustrate me at times. Every day I can sleep in, but I do not; I always wake early. I do get teary-eyed during wedding scenes in movies as well as many other scenes especially the movies on the Hallmark Channel.
Are there people that were really born in the 2000s and since when did kids have their own award show?
Many times I just like to sit and think and reflect. I often reflect on life, my life, my sons and the current day’s events.
I now call myself old because today all 3 of my sons are in their 30s.
But, I realize age is nothing but a number and a state of mind.
Happy 30th Birthday Son #3.
