Youre how old?!? - holidays


"Well, Happy Birthday! How old are you anyway?"

"Oh, I'm just 29 ? again. "

It's a meaningless game, denying our age, right? We play delicate about our age as we get older, as we get additional away from birth and faster to death. It's just a way to share our unease of budding older with associates about us.

Try as we might, time marches on and we get older just the same. I was reminded about this when I a moment ago read that we are now seven million years old. That's at least a million years older than we were just one year ago.

Of course, that does not mean you or I in my opinion aged a million years in the past 365 days. That would be each a horror movie or the work of a genius. An early human skull found in the Sahara Desert is 7 million years old, approaching "the start of human evolution back at least an added million years. "

For you and me, age is important. Denying one's age, or even being delicate about it, can be disabling. Our years, our lines, our scars are part of who we are. They must be a be of importance of comfort and pride. Happiness eludes us when we feel embarrassed, guilty, or shy about who we are.

It's time for each of us to take pride again in the whole thing we are. Try axiom a little like this: "I am just about 40 (or anything age applies to you). I have lived 40 years. I have survived 40 years. I have knowledgeable 40 years. I have erudite from 40 years. (I have much more to learn, so God, desire let me live an added 40!) I have thrived, mostly, at some point in 40 years. And I am proud of every one of those years. "

Once upon a time, the elders of the village were revered. They bore both awareness and wisdom. Now we become peaceful for just knowledge. The elders conceded traditions down from generations. Now we just construct brand new "traditions". The elders were our leaders. Now we rationalize them.

Youth has its own beauty, its own advantages, its own reasons to be admired. So, too, does central age. In fact, every age is central and every age is beautiful. How old are you right now? (Really, I don't mean "29 again". ) Doesn't matter what age you are, right now that is the accurate age -- and the achieve age to be proud of.

Oh sure, it is sort of innocent to kid about one's age. And many ancestors joke about it harmlessly. But many of us also have a deep unease about our age and our aging -- an unease that can hold back our self-esteem.

I bear in mind meeting in my pew when it out of the blue dawned on me why one appendage of the all-female choir looked so different. Every lady was at least 40 years old, but the other heads were jet black or honey brown or sandy blonde or some other false tint. White Top Lady packed a biased bundle of white hair.

It is not a sin to dye one's hair, as long as we don't do it for the duration of the service. It is just one of many ways we adorn ourselves. But the sight of a dozen elderly ladies with hair flag difficult for their age made me want to laugh out loud right there in church. (I resisted. ) All the heads would almost certainly have looked common if White Top Lady's hair had not been screaming out, "I'm proud of my color. I'm proud of my age. I'm not going to hide. "

It's time to be proud of the whole lot about ourselves, together with our age. So to every person appraisal this, "Happy Seven Millionth!"
