Would you like to live on till you are one hundred years old? What is your definition of living? I looked it up. Definition of living: The condition of being alive. Conduct or manner of life healthy living. What a person has to have to meet basic needs.
My grandma lived until the ripe old age of 104. She was moving slowly, took lots of naps, sometimes would forget things, needed help with everyday living and I think until 100 she could slowly ride a three-wheel bike. I consider her one of the lucky ones. Her kids did put her into a nursing home the last year of her life and that is where she died.
Her face was full of wrinkles but her eyes were so blue like the ocean and her smile radiant. Her fingers were bent and they hurt her. Whenever I told her she was beautiful she would give such a cute laugh while saying ‘no I am not’.
When ever we are asked about our age, we tend to shutter, and don’t tell. We are afraid to say that we are getting old, forgetting that some never get the chance to meet our age. But now I am going on a different tangent.
What the question was, is how do we get ready for old age? And may I add the world gracefully. How do we get to old age gracefully? I looked up old age. Old age: is called a senescence, in human beings, the final stage of a normal life span. Sixty to sixty-five years of age or older.
I have seen some women in their sixties who look so beautiful, with the help of cosmetic surgery. I have also seen them with wrinkles, but their laughter and their personality seem to make them younger in my eyes.
I have seen some women in their fifties who look like they are in their eighties. What happened in their life to make them grow old so prematurely?
So what is the secret of growing old gracefully?
