So I am in the middle-50s timetable of aging — and I don’t feel like slowing down at all. And why should I?
All I hear from people is, “Oh, I’m too old to FILL IN THE BLANK.” Nonsense! I saw an article on CNN.com about a 90-year-old grandmom dancing to some tunes and I had to check it out. Her grandson took a video of her dancing to LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem”. Of course videos like these go viral but it was worth a look.
I give her major kudos. There’s even a Facebook page for her now and she already has a couple thousand people liking her page.
I remember my parents and geez, it seemed like they were always “old.” My dad and mom both smoked, never exercised and were as out of shape as one could be. One time my dad joined the Y, tried to lose weight and it nearly killed him. And my mom never did anything to break a sweat except get out the cloth and the Pledge or run the vacuum. Please don’t kill me for saying that because it might be “work,” but it sure as heck isn’t exercise. And I don’t care what the doctors say.
I think my generation realizes that our parents’ generation for whatever reasons just didn’t do anything to stay in shape. Maybe it was because we were such annoying kids they just didn’t have the energy left or maybe they just didn’t care enough. But this lady is awesome. What an inspiration!
It’s all attitude folks. If you live old and act old and live old, you’re old. I believe in living and acting young. Look at the now-famous dancing grandma. If she can do it, I can and so can you too.
