I know that I have discounted the value of age. I feel young and vibrant and did not think that oldeness was good for anything. I think I am transitioning from new to old mentally. Now my children would consider me "old", but all of this really is a state of mind. My mind is catching up with my body (in a good, healthy, meaningful way).
Recently, I have used things from my past that have helped me deal with hurdles that I have encountered. I need to continue to reference those experiences for my mental, spiritual, daily health.
