Chapter 5, Page 31, Book 11


The excitement of learning separates youth from old age. As long as you’re learning, you’re not old

Rosalyn S.Yalow

I am enjoying the age I am but I thing aging is not as much about the body as it is about the attitude and the outlook towards life. We must have always had a hobby or interest that is used as a stress buster or to unwind and rejuvenate. Of course, at 67 you cannot hope to go mountaineering, especially if you haven’t kept in excellent health with regular exercise. However, you could develop a new interest that could keep you busy and happy. Learning something new will bring back the life that you think you were losing.

If you learn something new each day... you will never grow old. You learn something every day if you pay attention

Ray LeBlond

It's amazing how time flies by, and looking back can leave you feeling old! But just because you've got several decades behind you doesn't mean you have to feel old. Go out with a smile on your face, and enjoy the rest of your life as best as you can.
There are some things in life we have no control over, such as when we were born. Age is no more than a circumstantial detail, like the color of your eyes, or the names of your parents; it does not define who you are. There are other things that do, like those things we do have control over, such as how we think and what we do.

Tuesday resolution: Learn something new today

The sun came up this morning to help guide us through another beautiful day
in our lives, and I hope that you're able to make of this day one of the best
days that you've ever had in your life. After all, it IS up to you what you do with it!

Have a TERRIFIC day everyone!

I do agree with you, Ma, we need to keep our minds growing by learning new things, especially as we age to help us with our memory, skills, etc. Like they say "use it or lose it" and we don't want to have that happen, and being challenged to learn something new is a good way to keep active and young thinking. I think also we should grasp and be happy with the age we are, it has come with wisdom that we have learned through the ages that we can teach and tell others about with our experience and help them through life. I know too many of us groan as we age, but we should look at it as an adventure to what lies ahead!

enjoy Tuesday Ma!

I tell this to people everyday....
"Age is an attitude ..not a number"
Now that i'm in my 60's....i truly believe it....



I wear my old age proudly. At times I'm reluctant to try NEW things. But I think your words of wisdom will help coax me to do better.
