There are some truths about aging I’ve learned that make me giggle. Not that they are particularly funny, but I need to laugh and accept the reality.
- I understand gravity now because my sagging breasts are not as prominent as my belly.
- The few white hairs I used to have now cover my entire head, so when I take a picture of myself, I look like a negative (young people won’t know what this means.)
- I can fall asleep numerous times during the day while reading, but toss and turn for hours when I go to bed at night.
- I used to be able to touch my toes without bending my legs, now bending my legs causes my knees to hurt and I struggle not to fall on my head.
- I have to write down all appointments on my calendar, but I forget to look at it.
- Things now become invisible. Like my cell phone. I can walk from room to room for hours and suddenly it appears in the place I normally keep it.
- I can no longer say the wrinkles on my face are caused from smiling because they no longer disappear when I’m not.
- I used to walk 5 miles a day, now I have trouble walking to and from the mailbox.
- I used to love applying makeup, now it just gets sucked into the wrinkles and looks like a road map.
- I’ve learned the truth of the words “golden age.” All my gold goes to the doctors.
Lifting my cup of tea and wishing you all a day to laugh at yourself and enjoy life, even if it comes with limitations!
