Age can be a State of Mind

Different things and events in life can age us. We can be aged mentally, physically and/or spiritually. We need to take care of ourselves as we age, regardless of our physical age. If we can help it, try to not age too quickly! There is no aging race! So, stop thinking and talking old. It's in our attitude, our mentality and our spirits. Canes, medical ailments and negativity can be just props in our lives, aging us faster than we'd like. We are capable of taking control of our power in knowing what we can change, what we can't change and accepting these differences. Reminds me of the Serenity Prayer. Here it goes:

G-d (or Higher Power), grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.
