Why Should I?

I have been told in the past by a few people that I should “act my age” and I asked how different would I be if  I tried to be someone I do not how to be.  They did not have the answer.  My reply goes something like this:

I only know that I can be downright silly at times and laugh with my unique laugh (so my grand-chldren tell me) I have.  That I enjoy acting like a child full of curiosity and wonder.  I am in awe at so many things and of  the  many people  that I am in contact with on a weekly or daily basis.  It is difficult for  me to be serious unless I am feeling ill,  and I think even then, I cannot stay put in bed and  just feel sorry for myself.

That is one of my underlying fears, that I might not be able to care for myself one day and perhaps not know my name or a member of my families name or recognize them.  For me, being young in mind and body keeps the endorphins flowing through out my system, blocking any bad that might be trying to enter.

Positive energy has to be strong enough to block anything negative is my thinking and I am praying I am correct.  You know for these few folks that are usually negative in more ways than one,  I urge them to jump rope, belt out a tune or two, trying standing on one foot and then the other.  Be a child, laugh like a child and have fun.  Fun is food, fun is therapy. fun is wonderful!   And I would like to add a quote  “Don’t trust anyone who doesn’t laugh”  Maya Angelou

    Why would anyone want to act their age, unless they were 8 or 9? Life is given to us to enjoy and to help others enjoy it. It’s sad to think some people are so wrapped up in “the way they’re suppose to act” that they don’t enjoy their life and the people in it. Just who is happier, you or your critics? I think the answer is obvious. Keep on being you, we all love ya the way you are.

    Such wonderful words to hear and to also inspire me to continue to write what “I” am about with the hope that others will join in. Thank you!
