In life only so much is within our control. Aging is not.
Yet, a physician shakes his head to me, saying, “Don’t get old” as if it is the worst thing that can possibly happen to a person.
The alternative to aging is not attractive to anyone.
If a doctor is saying these things, advising one not to get old, how can anyone find anything great about growing old to look forward to? The doctor, of all people, would know best wouldn’t he…
I think not.
And I hope I do get old because I have so much yet I want to to do, so much I am not yet capable of and need to grow stronger for that I actually look forward to being old enough to have done every last lick of reaching what dreams I have left.
