When does one get old? Is there a certain age? A cut off date?
I know people commonly retire around 65. Is that when a human gets old?
The closer I get to 65, the less OLD, people of 65 look to me.
Strikingly they look like peers! We all look so young still.
I remember reading about a woman who was discussing end of life care with her doctors. She stunned them when she requested that everything be done to save her, in the case of an emergency. ” I’m too young to die!” she stated emphatically.
She was 92.
Now as I sit here in my mid forties, 92 seems like it might be an age when one is old, but clearly this lady didn’t think so!
Will I think I’m old if I’m lucky enough to reach the age of 92?
I suspect once I hit my 70s, those 90 year olds are gonna start looking younger too 😉
So what age is old? Who gets to decide what that age is? Is it a thing that can only be measured in the body? Or is it measured in the mind, heart and the soul?
How do you measure age? When do you feel you’ll be old?
