• Y - Young

    Y is for Young

    #AtoZChallenge 2019 Tenth Anniversary blogging from A to Z challenge letter

    I love discussing the idea of 'Young' in a blog series
    focused on Retirement and Aging!

    Is age really just a number like they say?

    If you are 50 talking with a friend who is 70,
     you might feel young.  
    But if your 70 year old friend is talking to a friend who is 90, might your 
    70 year old friend feel young?
    might you just feel you are talking with a friend who has something
    to offer, and 'young' or 'old' doesn't enter into the equation?

    What age is 'young?'  
    Is there an official number?
    If you are young at 29 years old on Tuesday, but Wednesday is your 30th birthday,
    are you suddenly old at 30, 
    or were you just old at 29 and you didn't know it? :-)
    might you feel the whole discussion of 'young' and 'old' is
    a waste of time and focus on what you contribute to your society at whatever your age?

    If you are comfortable in your own skin, 
    your natural color hair, your well-earned facial wrinkles, 
     the clothes on your body,
     regardless of colors, or patterns, or style,
    regardless of what anyone else thinks of you
     ... is that young?
    is judging a 'book by its cover' when talking about humans
    an expression of your own ignorance and insensitivity?    

    So what do you think?
