Doin’ it like my Momma

What are your thoughts on aging?  How will you stay young at heart as you get older?

They say you never ask a lady her weight or her age.  I never understood why.  To me both those have always just been numbers, so I have never really struggled to answer when someone asked me either question.  (I’m 38 and weigh 59 kilo’s thanks to Christmas by the way).  I suppose I am comfortable with it because I had to grow up real quick.  By my 16th birthday I had seen and experienced and heard more than most people my age have or ever will.  I learned then that it is not how old you are that matters, but what you do about your circumstance.

More recently when I entered a pre-midlife crisis Cougar period and dated a 28 year old, I again learned that age really doesn’t matter.  With him I laughed and joked and played and wrestled more than I have in my entire life.  I honestly felt 16 and discovered how much fun I could actually be.  Turns out I am not as boring as my two exes before him had claimed, so that was a bonus and probably one of the best lessons I learned from that chapter of my life.

When thinking about how I will stay young at heart, I really don’t have to search very far for the answer.  I’ll just do it like my momma does.  That woman is a pure unstoppable force of life and I admire her tenacity to just keep going.


She’s like Dory on steroids: just keep swimming, just keep swimming (but do it super-fast else you might die before you get to do it!). 
Hats off to you mom!  You drive me nuts sometimes, but I hope to grow old the way you do.
Instead of me elaborating on this for too long, I figured it’s best for you to just go check out what she did for her 60th birthday!

I am a free spirit born in the Free State, 20 years to late. I am Ying and Yang. I am the girl next door who prefers daisies and peace rallies, but can just as easily rock at a rally. I love all things Latin and am sure that in my previous life (if that existed) I was Spanish. The dark side of me, however, tells me that I lived in Mother Russia. On a quest to find my happy-ever-after, I am in constant search of answers to all things that makes us human. What we do and, more importantly, why we do it. I hope you enjoy my rambles and would love to hear from you!
