(Response to the Daily Prompt Word: Age)
They say age is just a number but for a long time, I didn’t believe that. On my 30th birthday, I was so depressed, I didn’t enjoy it at all because all I could see approaching was the big 4!
When I turned 40 however, I started looking at age in a different perspective, I decided I wasn’t going to let age change me but to change the way I age and I started enjoying it. I challenged myself to start doing things I didn’t do before to prove to myself that age wasn’t going to slow me down.
I am now 40+ and I can testify that indeed age is just a number. I feel younger than my age and a lot of people have told me that I look younger my age. I feel more energetic than I did in my 20s or 30s…..I have run two half marathons in my 40s!
I totally agree with whoever said ‘Life begins at 40’….my life has began and I am enjoying my forties and no sir, age won’t stop me! 🙂
I will not let age change me, I will change the way I age!
