Topic of Conversation

Interesting thing conversations, they change as we age.

Today in Day in the Life, I want to have a conversation about, you guessed it, conversations.  As we age, they seem to change.  When we are in our twenties, we talk about the cute guy/gal across the street, fashion sense, studies.  In our thirties it is all about the corporate ladder and the children.  Then we cross to forties and fifties and we start talking about aches and pains.

Apparently my favorite expression now is “I’m too young to feel this old” and it is hitting a nerve.  Many of us feel young at this age and yet, we certainly feel we can relate to our parents when they were our age and complained or walked slower because of a back or leg spasm and other symptoms.

In the last few weeks, I’ve had conversations with three or four friends, close in age.  We have all talked about living or coping with constant pain.  It is as if we are taking for granted that we are supposed to live this way.

I refuse to believe this is the case.  Part of the reason why I am changing my diet and exercise habits is because I truly believe we should be healthy and pain-free well into our golden years.  Do you agree?

I want to know what you think?  Are we taking our health for granted?  Are we giving up to feeling old with each passing year?  I can’t wait to see what you think.  Make sure to leave your comments in the section below.

This is how I see age
