Celebrate your old age:
Aging is a natural phenomenon. That one cannot ever stop nor anyone can escape from it. With due respect it is very sad for me to mention that we human beings lives our lives with double standards. As when we are children, our parents are proud to tell that their children are growing and so on. But when we age in to the later part of our life, we do not want to disclose it in front of the world at large. We have this false concept that life is all about living a young age. But my question to those people is why do we even feel shy about our age? As for all the right reason if it’s okay for us to celebrate our young age then why do we even want to grow at first place? So to make it crystal clear, here I am going to discuss the reasons to celebrate your old age, because aging is not something to be shy of.
Reasons to celebrate your old age:
The reason for the above said philosophies is that we have some great false concepts that any wise person will laugh to hear about. We think that old age is all about having a hunched back, with total grey hair, holding a walking stick, shaking and coughing loudly. We have assumed that once we have crossed our sixty our life has come to an end. As we think that it’s about the time that one should start caring for his good deeds and wait silently for his final time. But my question to all those peoples is that if old is the only reason of death then why young men die? How do children die? Any answers and explanations for that? Have any? Of course not! Life and death is the natures call and who knows what nature has planned for us. Therefore Alexander pope says that “Ignorance is bliss”.
When no one knows about his good and bad times then why do we have such myths? I personally say that old is all about celebration. Every new day in old age is a ray of hope. A hope that reminds you of your success. Have you ever thought about your accomplishments in your earlier age? Except for getting good grades what else have you done remarkable? Can’t think of anything? And now when you are in your old age think of your accomplishments, you will find many. By this time you have studied well, you did well in your professional life, you raised a family of yours and also you’ve done whatever you wanted to do. So why do you regret your old age?
Yes dear oldie, old age is a symbol of having led a peaceful, happy and successful life. You have achieved whatever you wanted to do and what else do you want. Being happy, cheerful and carefree is the real treat of old age. This is the time when you don’t have to care for earing more, you don’t have to feed your small children nor do you have any other responsibilities over your head.
Here the thinking point is that one can make his old age miserable and pathetic if he fails to enjoy his life. You should be smart enough to maintain yourself. You should eat healthy and make sure that you don’t develop any medical issues. Groom yourself well. Make your social life a bit more interactive. This all will help you love your old age. As after, childhood old age is only the golden age of life when you have nothing to worry about.
