I had to do this thread.. I always felt young and energetic maybe coz of exercise and a proper diet and my zest for life is still like a teenager and so are my desires.. Turning 40 in a couple of months. According to me, age is really a number assigned and biological aging is different from a number. So anyways..few funny things happened over the past few months which kept me thinking that it is time to accept my number 1) There was thread where I lamented to start working.My hubby wanted to relax me and jokingly said “you are already in a age where you need to think of retirement in a few years and now you are worrying so much about a job to prove to others?”.I got pissed off and he said he was just trying to make things light and want me to stress less and did not mean it other way.Little did he know..I was more concerned about the mention of my age Hee hee 2) Nowadays if I color my hair..people are like “grey hair?” Ten years back hair color was related to style but now? 3) Yeah I have started greying but not too much and was worried and last India trip went to a doctor to ask about it..lol.The doctor put her pen down and said “Madam,13 year old is getting hair grey.Why are you worrying so much?”.. whoa! Shocker! So am getting..old..older! 4) went to a nightout with a group of ladies and one guy told us” hmm..You women look like you want to leave home duties for the day and relax”. Maybe aging is not a bad thing.One needs to accept it.I might want to age gracefully,dress more elegant and enjoy the perks with comes with it. Even when I think about it..my workouts and diet are not to look fit but to be healthy.My idea of fitness also changed.. also..yeah if I may say so..i still admire good looking men but thinking about it,I admire men about 30 and below 55..when did this happen!!! All my friends have kids who are above 14 and some even in college first year!yeah they got their kids younger.. I smile now when I remember the time I turned 20.I was so upset that my teens ended and my cousins were consoling that I still look young like a teen..ha ha ha But now? Now when people call me aunty..my become a bathrakaali but come on! I am an aunty for people who are 20 but hey!30 year olds please excuse..maybe didi or akka is fine Love America where you are addressed by your last name! Anyways,a fun thread How did you feel when you ended a decade?
