How old is old?
Here’s my response: Numbers don’t really tell much if a person is old or not. They’re simply figures. You can be fifty but still feel thirty. I guess one is considered old when s/he is no longer childlike. My father is sixty-six, but when he plays with my three-year-old son Justin, he morphs into a tyke, displaying the characteristics of playfulness, innocence, and candor that befit a child. A person can also be considered old when s/he no longer enjoys the seemingly insignificant things in life. When you’re still able to appreciate the sunshine or the rain, be thankful for the air you breathe, or marvel at God’s creations, then whatever your age, you’ll forever be young at heart. Finally and most importantly, a person is considered old when s/he doesn’t look forward to the future. Perhaps, you’ll meet up with a friend tomorrow or you’ll go on a date with your spouse this weekend or you’ll spend precious bonding moment with your child tonight. You anticipate things like these because they add meaning and mirth to your life. Whatever makes you happy makes you young. So, being old is all a matter of perspective. As for myself, I’m forever stuck at twenty.
