The lady in the photo lifting 150 pounds off the floor is in her 80’s.

But this post isn’t about her or the other photo. This is a “come on, man!” post.

Blaming stuff on age and aging is [pardon the pun] getting old.
Why can’t it just be ok to make certain life style choices and enjoy the upside of that. And when the downside starts to show up in your life just accept it without blaming it on something else.

Why must the downside of everything either be “its genetic” or “I’m getting old”.

If you’re 30 to 70 years old, those aches and pains aren’t “its genetic” and you ain’t old. .Can we please just dispense with the scapegoating.

If your life choices are ok to you then let them be ok. Enjoy the upside and stop trying to blame the downside on something else.

There are identical twins women and men in their 60’s and 70’s, genes exactly the same where one twin has arthritis the other does not. One is obese, the other is not. One has run a marathon, the other can’t get out of bed in the morning without aches and pains.

If you’re 40 something you’re not old. If you’re 50 something you’re not old. If you’re 60 something, you ain’t old either.

You don’t know what old is and you’re decades away from finding out. .Dispense with the bullshit that you’re constantly telling yourself and others. Its a self fulfilling prophecy.

Whatever you’re experiencing, you signed up for it and that’s ok. Let it be ok, stop putting it on genes, age or aging.
