the worst thing about getting older is the inevitable disappointments in life. finding out that 95% of the world you absolutely cannot relate to whatsoever and having that shroud lifted on that childhood wonder, awe, and mystery of life. there isn't any mystery to me. we are pissants here today and gone tomorrow. i recently spent a night out drinking with a 73 year old man. i mean, i met him at a bar and we hit it off. i was just amazed by his optimism, attitude, and approach to life. one of the coolest people i have ever met. i wish i had that. maybe i am ungrateful? maybe we are too obsessed with leaving a mark on this world by giving some kind of meaning to our lives and existence and by trying to be perfect. maybe it's all about the ride. don't look back, move on. take one day at a time. one minute at a time. i'm telling myself this now, but i understand your sentiments completely doomride.
it is what it is. i will be thirty in a year. it is what it is. you are as old as you are. there's nothing you can do about it. that old man i spent the night out drinking with who became my friend will probably be dead soon, but he is still living and enjoying life in the now. he hasn't given up. a new dawn is another chance no matter how far down the line you are.
better living through chemistry. if ya need to take stuff for hypertension or hyperlipidemia then do it. try to eat a few healthy meals and get some exercise. 60 is the new 40 ya know. it's very important to try to keep the weight off, i.e. that middle aged tire that wants to develop around the mid section.
You know that growing old is mandatory and growing up is optional, don't you?
That's the truth. I'm 37 but I never agreed with the idea of "growing up". Fuck that. Getting older? I can't do anything about that. From everyone that I saw around me, "growing up" meant becoming a grumpy fuck that basically hates their life.
I vowed to never let that happen to me. Especially once I went through a two year period of dealing with scary medical issues where I didn't know if I was going to be around or not. Once I made it through that shit, it changed things a bit for me. Not that I ever moaned about getting older, but I would go through a lot of depressive periods. I don't do that now. I just kick back, take it one day at a time, rock out and just enjoy life for what it is.
