I want to get old.

I remember before when I was still groovy and fun-filled human being, it's not that I am not now. Lol, Let me say I'm not that active type of human being anymore because of my illness but as much as possible I tried to be as lively as I can be. Before, I don't want to get old. I don't want to get wrinkles or white hair. Most of the people will tell me, I don't look like my age. I'm 34 and someone will still be mistaken me for 25. Is that cool? Is it a compliment to me? Maybe. I was chatting with @thelme55 and she gave me ideas on what to discuss here. And I am thankful. She too wants me to get old so that I can see my nieces and nephews grow. Do you want to get old or still want to be young? The photo I grabbed from Google.com

I am old but I guess I don't mind getting a bit older.

I think getting old is one of our biggest achievement because not all of us will live that long.

@Hannihar No but getting older is better than the alternative, don't you think?

I threw myself my last birthday party in 2012. I turned 57 and thought it would be my last birthday because of what the doctors told me. Now I am 62 and well on my way to my 63rd birthday in August. The gray hair I see them. I still color my hair. The wrinkles are deepening. Today I ended up pulling a white hair out of a mole on my face. It used to come in Black. But everyday I wake up and I'm so glad to be alive. I was told I had 6 months to live. And now it's almost 6 years since I heard that. Again, I need you to remind me that I'm living each day, and I'll remind you to do the same. I love you. Truly.

This message touches me deeply. Thank you for this. Truly you are miracle who would have thought. All I want now is to grow old. I will be 35 this year and I will make the most out of it. You are an inspiration, thank you so much.

@JustBhem we each live with something. You live with your disease. I live with mine. Some people live with anger. We all live with something. We are not dying of it. So each day we live. We ask ourselves what difference can we make. Today only.

Just like Judy, I already am old. I would be glad to become a bit older, not too much, I do not want to reach the age of 100, but I would like to live some more years. I don't have wrinkles, you can dye your hair and people can mistake you for a lot younger woman.

You should take it as a compliment, and be careful what you wished for. I've long desired about growing up but if I knew what I know now I would have had enjoyed my childhood more.

I never want to get old, but getting old sure beats dying. Yes you do look younger than your age. That usually is a compliment. And yes, we all want you to grow old!

Nobody wants to get old. I myself I don't want to get old but old age is what we are saddled with. It's a time we should embrace when it comes because it comes with it's own challenges.

I also do not look my age. I never did and that is nice but since I am no longer young I feel my age more and more these days. I do not know why someone would want to be old. It is not fun.

As I grow older, it doesn't bother me at all! First being a daughter, then became a mother, a grandmother, and now a great grandmother. Getting older is something I don't mind, one bit!:)
