Forever Young

Dear Diary, (Oh that's sucks..)

Yesterday I met school days friend, haven't seen him for the last 10 years (and he doesn't have Facebook ;-) After solving some old conflict we had  (His ex told him some juicy stuff about me and her, probably to make him jealous and marry her faster, few people added some more details to the story and here you go... ;-)

Anyway after solving this conflict like real men should do it, we talked about the fact that we both haven't changed at all in the last 10 years, while he told that he feels 'bad" about it, I told that I feel great with that, I feel great feeling young!! Everything I achieved till now is because I feel young. And I don't mean childish, after all I make my own money since the age of 14, a few years after that I became completely independent and since than making hard decisions every day without any problem.

What I mean by being young is; live easy, accept new ideas, do experiments, take risks etc..


Well what I think we should do to be "Forever Young" (at least until we'll invite some elixir) is:

  • Sport - keeps your body and mind healthy and in-focus.
  • Accept new ideas, try new things, experiment with your life.
  • Take risks, with all what it takes.
  • Don't think that you know everything, always be ready to ask others and to learn something new.
  • Find wife/gf that is younger than you ;-) A tip that one of my partners gave me long time ago, if not try to talk and collaborate with people that are younger than you on daily/weekly basis.
Let me know if I missed something?

I almost totally agree with you, except one thing: your partner (wife/gf) may be your age, the major issue is how she feels about her youngness. Mine is only 3 years younger, but in the good and the beatuiful parts of our life she acts like she was 18 :)

Exactly!! I know people that are only 18 yo and they feel/act like 40, and I know 40 yo that feel/act like 18!!

Nice one! If I could write like this I would be well chuffed. The more I read articles of such quality as this (which is rare), the more I think there might be a future for the Net. Keep it up, as it were.

WOW, Thanks Anonymous! At least tell me who you are? in private ;-)

I do agree with what u wrote with one remark - u don't have to hung-around with younger ppl but the spirit-wellbeing is what matter.
(Efrat is trying to convince herself she's young & kicking..)
;)

Efrat, that's ok you're young!! ;-)

After all, you're not so old... Anyway, it IS good that some of us is able to take over his daytime and rule it himself. As for me, it all ends with a wish to sooner hug my pillow at the end of the day..

So try to make a change "It's Up To You".
BTW, the last bullet tip is from your brother ;-)

I’d need to analyze with you right here. Which can be not something I typically do! I get satisfaction in reading through a publish that will make people feel. Furthermore, many thanks for permitting me to comment!
