On Aging

After I reached my fifties my body and parts started changing. It was like waking up one day and my skin was starting to sag, more fine lines and hair on the face, the top of my hands are drier and are starting to look like elephant skin.

Our bodies change as we age but we are never prepared for that day when we look in the mirror and see a person that has aged over night but has some resemblance to you.

I started to feel a few aches and pains that I did not notice before, but now I not only notice I do not move quite as quick. Bones creak and crack and the joints are not quite as limber as they use to be.

I stretch every day, try to walk as much as possible and continue to do crunchies, sit ups, push ups…just not as many or as fast as I use to.

Aging is a part of life but I always thought I had more time before my body would show it.

One day it just happens
