Grandmother is 82 years old - My grandmother ages 82 years old now...
I would like to reach the age of my grandmother. She is 82 right now and I hope I could also reach such age inorder for me to accomplished a lot of stuff and be contented with life. Reaching such age is already lucky for anyone because you had spent a great deal of time in your life already. You had accomplished a lot, travel a lot and enjoy life to the fullest.

I think when a girl reaches the age of 32 she is already considered older.Ages below this are still considered safe bu when you beginning to reach the level of 32 you could already say that your an old lady.

Age is a state of mind. When you are happy with yourself, know God as your personal savior and have a possitive attitude than you can accomplish a lot in this life. I feel young and want to be young for a long time.

The key to stay young is always be possitive and have a happy heart. Being old is up to us, if we feel, act and stay young, then we are young.

Its intresting because I know some 30-35 year olds who are as old as can be, they are unmotivated and lifeless. I also know a large number of 60+ individuals who are always going out and are in better shape then some 20 year olds. They love life, and live it to the max every day. Age is only a number, we must make every day worthwhile as if it was our last.

I dont know.But as far as i concern,being old is not in the age.Its in your heart and mind!The fact that being young is really great to feel!Its our physical looks define as old and our knowledge.But inside, we can be as young as we are!Just like my dad he is already 76 years old but he feels young still until now!The way he thinks and the way his life he wants!

I think you are old after the 80's or maybe not even then, like you say, it depends on your heart and mind. I feel young at heart.

I think when we feel old about ourself, then that is the age. I'm 59 and feel old. My husband is 70, and doesn't feel old.

I think you are "old" when you give up on life and no longer enjoy it. Until then, as long as you enjoy life and live it to the fullest, who cares if your 14, 40, or 94? Age is a number and nothing more. And who says "old" is a bad thing anyways? I have never in my life enjoyed a conversation more than when I talked with my grandmother-in-law who was 98. The knowledge she had, the things she had seen and the things she knew were priceless. Her age gave her the knowledge above and beyond anyone "young" could ever imagine.

Yes, that's true, we need to live our lives to the fullest. I like to hear stories from the old persons, they always have something to tell.

Not even close. My grandfather is 84 years young. I have a great, great aunt who is 99 years old. She is still active in her convent! She walks three miles a day and she helps prepare breakfast for the other sisters. Now if she isn't old, how could you be?

My mother will be 50 next month and she always says that one is only as hold as they feel. She does not look 50 and she is in great shape and is very healthy! I guess it is all up to you how old you would like to feel!

Old is a state of mind. If you look older than your age... it does not help. But if at heart you still feel like a 25 year old... who cares how old you are. An 18 year old consider a 40 year old as a geriatic. My mother is 78 year old and she won't let anyone calling her "old". One way to look at it... is that you still have 30 years to go to catch up with my mother. If you put it in that perspective... that give you the time to redo everything you did since the age of 18. Makes you wonder... does it not?

I ma 23 year old, should i consider myself old???...i dont think so, there is any standard way to measure anyone's oldness, or any boundry line before which you can call youself young, and after that line you are old, i dont think so. In my views person is old when he or she thinks that they are old now, as long as they consider themselves young..... they are young.

you can be old when you are 18 years or you can be young at 65 years.... its all how you think... if you think you are old than you are old but if you think you are young than you will be young forever... I am 33 years but I feel like 18years.. think that i am 18years still...

I dont consider you old. I feel an old age would be 70 or 80. I have a great aunt who is 82 and can get around better than me. I hope i have that much life in me if i get to live that long.

I used to think 20 was old, then turned it. Then it was 30, turned it. The older I get, the younger I think I am. :)
