Doin’ it like my Momma

What are your thoughts on aging?  How will you stay young at heart as you get older?

They say you never ask a lady her weight or her age.  I never understood why.  To me both those have always just been numbers, so I have never really struggled to answer when someone asked me either question.  (I’m 38 and weigh 59 kilo’s thanks to Christmas by the way).  I suppose I am comfortable with it because I had to grow up real quick.  By my 16th birthday I had seen and experienced and heard more than most people my age have or ever will.  I learned then that it is not how old you are that matters, but what you do about your circumstance.

More recently when I entered a pre-midlife crisis Cougar period and dated a 28 year old, I again learned that age really doesn’t matter.  With him I laughed and joked and played and wrestled more than I have in my entire life.  I honestly felt 16 and discovered how much fun I could actually be.  Turns out I am not as boring as my two exes before him had claimed, so that was a bonus and probably one of the best lessons I learned from that chapter of my life.

When thinking about how I will stay young at heart, I really don’t have to search very far for the answer.  I’ll just do it like my momma does.  That woman is a pure unstoppable force of life and I admire her tenacity to just keep going.


She’s like Dory on steroids: just keep swimming, just keep swimming (but do it super-fast else you might die before you get to do it!). 
Hats off to you mom!  You drive me nuts sometimes, but I hope to grow old the way you do.
Instead of me elaborating on this for too long, I figured it’s best for you to just go check out what she did for her 60th birthday!

I am a free spirit born in the Free State, 20 years to late. I am Ying and Yang. I am the girl next door who prefers daisies and peace rallies, but can just as easily rock at a rally. I love all things Latin and am sure that in my previous life (if that existed) I was Spanish. The dark side of me, however, tells me that I lived in Mother Russia. I am an over thinker par excellence , in constant search of answers to all things that makes us human. What we do and, more importantly, why we do it. I hope you enjoy my rambles and would love to hear from you. If you like it here, please come back, comment and share. If not, let me not waste another second of your time. All I ask is that you respect my space, be constructive and leave negativity at the door. There is enough of that in this world we live in and yes, in my head too sometimes. Not everything here will be liked or agreed with. Some of it will be downright rude, crazy and straight forward. Not everyone will like me and what goes on in my head, but this is my life and my space. Enjoy the ride
