How Old Is “Old”?

How old is old? If you’re like me you roll your eyes when you hear a 30-year-old moan about being old. People are living to be 100 and beyond today and they’re old at 30! Enjoy your youth, I say. Don’t think old before you are old. Let me tell you about old! I don’t really say that last part, because they don’t want to hear it. I’ve known people who are young in their 70s and 80s and people who are old in their 40s and 50s. Our choir director is 85 and still teaches and performs and composes music. He’s one of those young olds. Some say old is all in your head. I don’t say that (my body says, Oh yeah?), but your mindset does have a lot to do with how you view yourself. Now, I know, early on health problems can make you feel physically old before your time, but don’t let that stop you from doing what you can. You may surprise yourself. And think of this: Your life now, whether you’re 30 or 92, is just a blip on eternity. Even when you are 92 or 100, your life is just getting started. I’m going to stop now and thank the One responsible for that.
