How Did I Get This Old?!!

Me and my grand-daughter on her 13th birthday

The only time I usually feel my age is first thing in the morning and after I get off work in the afternoon.  At these times I can tell by the aches and pains that age is slowly ( well maybe not so slowly, ha) creeping up on me, but this weekend I am mentally feeling my age.

This weekend is my oldest daughter’s 20 year high school reunion, really?  OMG, how can that be, I thought mine was just a couple of years ago, but I guess when I really think about it..it wasn’t, it was 20 years ago!  The last time I mentally felt my age was on my 30th birthday, I looked in the mirror and suddenly realized I was not 18 any more!   I was able to extinguish that three alarm fire by gaining a “Free To Be Me” attitude which brought me the ability to care less about what other people thought and more about what I thought and how I felt about things.  I have kept that attitude now for over 28 years.   But this is different, I don’t believe I am going to be able to will this anguish away.
