Oh so true!!!! If you think you are old, you're going to feel old no matter what age you are.

Puhleeeeze, it has nothing to do with being "unable to face mortality". Everyone dies. But not everyone has fun getting there!

So, move your walker to the side, old man...I'm coming through and you'd better get out of the way!

Compared to most of my contemporaries ( age 58 ) I look, and act much younger, but no way do I feel like I did when I was in my 30's. Attitude wise, I was more positively expectant & upbeat thinking in my 30's than I am now. I've become less hopeful and more resigned as I've grown older.

Oh come now. I know some of you can't do things like you did in your 30's, like I said, it's all in your mind.
I was spoofing the "50 is the new 70" thread. lol
50 is definitely not 70 any way you look at it. Some people just feel old, so they are.

I once met a friend of a friend. This friend would constantly say he was "Really really old!" He was 40.
So, yes, it's all in your mind.

Think about it...50 is the 20th anniversary of turning 30!

On my most recent birthday last June, I celebrated the 29th anniversary of turning 29.

I feel like I am 35. Don't feel old or anything. I think time has changed. Of course you can feel like you are 25. It's your attitude and energy that is important
