Good morning to you all. I trust you are enjoying all the experiences of life. I have a thought for you this morning.
My thought I share is “I protest aging”. I have said that many times as people my age or older complain about getting older and the aches, pains and the things they cannot do any longer.
I understand that but that is when I tell them “I protest”. Everyone else seems to be protesting something so I thought I would protest something.
I mentioned to a friend this past week that we should start a “getting younger club” as part of the protest. Where we participate in some of the following on a daily basis; Pomp, ennie eye over, catch, roller skating, flies up, 6ft rim basketball, red rover red rover, hide and seek, cap gun fights, making castles in the sand box and GI joes, coloring books, playing Risk marathon games and Monopoly marathons, picking a piece of grass and chewing on it, riding bikes with someone on the handle bars, skipping rocks in the pond, catching butterflies, walking to the drug store to get a malt and french fries with ketsup, swing, teter toter, going down a slide, going to a stomp, going on a date and sitting next to each other in the car, holding hands, buying a corsage for the dance, tennis and sitting on the court in the shade drinking a coke, having a sit down dinner with my family in my assigned seat, flag football and all and any things we use to do when we were young. I am sure you can think of many things you use to do when you were younger.
Now……why not. Can we not still do some of these things? To be young you need to think, act and do things that are youthful and young.
I protest aging by getting back to do some things I use to do when I was young. I do not like the saying…..”when you get older you put away the younger things you use to do”. Why? who made that rule…..and old guy I suppose.
What were some of the favorite things you use to do when you were young?
Hey, at least think about it. By protesting aging…..ya think young or younger. Don’t dwell on the older stuff, do something fun and exciting again. It breeds excitement, fun and energy. Even thinking about all this stuff I use to do as a child, makes me happy and excited. Try it and do it.
Hey, have a great youthful day. You can if you choose.
That’s my protest,
Love ya all,
