Here’s my post for a recent Weekly Writing Challenge on the Golden years and ageing.
How did I get to this point in life?? I honestly don’t know how I came to be in my early fifties, I don’t feel that old!!
In actual fact my body isn’t that old…..what do I mean by that?
I have been doing a health and fitness challenge for the past few months and one of the steps has been a body composition analysis. At the beginning my body age was 45 (despite my actual age of 53) and at the end of the challenge my body’s age was 42. This has made me very happy!! I am feeling fit, healthy and fantastic and I’m in my early fifties – how lucky am I?
I love this picture of a teenage me, all bright eyed and bushy tailed!! I am still that teenage girl on the inside, despite the outside saying something different. I firmly believe that if you think you are old, then you are old. This can happen to people at any age. I am happy to report that I don’t think I’m old so therefore I’m not old!
I have learnt so much along the way and gained so much from life changing events that I wouldn’t even consider swapping to return to my younger self, if I was given the chance. I’m happy being this age at the moment – this is the oldest I’ve ever been.
