Remembering that the “ODDS” are us oldies don’t have too long.
Pushes us to be “AWAKE” to every minute and enjoy.
Because almost everything “FALLS AWAY” in the “FACE OF DEATH”
leaving ONLY what is important.
It’s funny that youngsters see OLD AGE as a foreign country!
But really youth and oldies are often a MIRROR IMAGE of each other.
Just as a 20 year old has their whole life AHEAD OF THEM.
Their 80 year old grandfather has a long past to look BACK ON.
The young wonder what will happen in life.
The oldie wonders about their health and how long they can
maintain their INDEPENDENCE.
So what is our TASK as oldies?
It is to make peace with our lives and live for the moment.
We try to focus on the bigger picture.
We want to better prioritise and appreciate our lives and our relationships with others.
We coped with life’s negatives and hopefully we appreciate life’s positives.
We hope to enjoy the good parts and make the best of the bad ones.
Overall life is more straight forward when you’re old.
We’ve had more years to make mistakes and a lot more chances to learn from them.
You know the road ahead is much shorter and what roads there are, you’re
just going to WALK!
