Old But Not Obsolete
I actually love that line.
“Old, but not obsolete”
We get so caught up in trying to look young, feel young, and even act young that we miss the fact that with age comes other things – perspective, grace, wisdom.
I look at a picture of myself now and don’t hardly recognize the person staring back at me. Age happens.
But it doesn’t mean we have to get worse.
I have been ridiculed for “trying to live forever”, but that is not my goal.
My goal is to be as productive as possible for as long as possible.
Part of that is taking care of myself physically. But I also read voraciously, try to learn something new every day, and try to add something of value to this world.
It’s not about living forever, ain’t gonna happen in this body.
I just want to grow “Old, But Not Obsolete”.
Who is with me?
