Are you afraid of growing old?

I remember a friend of mine who is so vain abut growing old. She is afraid of what old age might bring her. Is this a normal feeling? Are you afraid of growing old?

I suppose you have to consider the alternative...if you don't age you die...so I pick life!!! I am 58 and have yet to face a birthday number that made me sad, scared, upset...it's all good and it's all in your head. Would I like to continue looking young? of course...but would I spend my life savings paying for extreme surgery?...I think not...I have a 16 year old spirit..I am happy and energetic...it is normal for lots of people to be afraid of aging....but they need to be happy they are here, especially if they have their health. Good health is everything...you can't buy it..but if you have it you are rich..rich in the things that really matter...life is a journey and we should enjoy the trip..if you are constantly worried about the destination ( the end of your life) then it's hard to be excited about the trip!!! I have a strong faith and believe that every day is a gift..given to me to make a difference in someone's life..I try to take that challenge on as much as possible..it gives me great pleasure to help others, which in turn really helps me!!! Afraid of aging? Not me...the alternative I am not ready for..I have too much to do that can help change the world!!! Be well...
