The sure fact is that as long as we hang around each of us is getting older every day. I don't recall that I gave a lot of thought to getting older when I was young. Now that I am, well, older, there are a few things I'm sure my younger self would have never given any thought to but that I find my older self thinking about the older I get.....

The older I get.....the less I like to shave my legs.
The older I get.....the more I'm sure there are a lot of things that I'll never be really grown up about.
The older I get.....the more I would like to have and am afraid of having a little "work" done on my face.
The older I get.....the more I wish I had done a better job of keeping up with people I was good friends with in the past.
The older I get.....the more I need to exercise and the less I like to exercise (or I guess these days you have to say work out).
The older I get.....the faster time goes. I know that is a cliche, but it is so, so true.
The older I get.....the less I like the word "retirement". I'm all in favor of not having to go to work anymore, but no so good with calling my self "retired".
The older I get.....the more I wonder what I would look like if I quit coloring my hair...and how I would do that without spending many months looking like a skunk.
The older I get.....the more I realize that being older doesn't necessarily mean being wiser.
The older I get.....the more I wonder how my grandchildren will remember me.
The older I get.....the harder it is to know if certain clothes are "appropriate" for "someone my age" to wear. Okay, I don't worry too much about that, but I do think about it and am pretty much done with sleeveless. (and I can hardly even mention swimsuits)
The older I get.....the older everyone else is getting right along with me and I am grateful for that.
What do you find your older self thinking about that your younger self would never have thought of.?
