I can hardly believe what I read today.
A Retire savvy survey reckons you should
· stop taking selfies at 34.
What do you mean? I have just gotten the hang of it. Granted I will never do the "trout pout", but that's a sign of good old "cop on" rather than of old age.
· stop watching reality tv at 41.
Oops I'm watching Big Brother as I'm typing this.
· quit Twitter at 47
How else would I know what is going on in Kim Kardashian's life!
· not get your naval pierced after 38.
Having only had my ears pierced, I wouldn't have done this before the age of 38 either!
· not visit Ibiza after 40
Ibiza is so much more than bars, clubs and vomiting Leaving Certs. Go and explore!
· be home before midnight after 52!
I don't have to be tucked up in bed with a cup of hot cocoa by the witching hour however I will admit that after staying out after midnight it takes much longer to recover.
Who on earth came up with this survey, a group of twenty year olds?
I have always been a firm believer that age is just a number. I have taken on more challenges in the past few months that I have in the previous decades. One of the most influential interviews that I have read is with a fit and active 90 year old. When she was asked if she had any regrets in life, she replied
"Thinking that I was too old at 80!"
And I think that is the motto we should live our lives by, I certainly intend to.
What is old age?
It's always ten years older than you are!
