Recently a friend had written about the infirmatives of old age.Most of those who commented on that post had expressed that they are scared of old age After reading the views/comments of the people I decided to write my experience of old age. I had written a blog on this subject two years ago. I am updating the post written by me earlier.
Welcome old age or is it golden age!! The beauty of childhood and the glory of youth has given way to quietitude and tranquility of old age.Looking backward I see not only a life of fulfilment and success but also that of trials and tribulations. The arrival of old age has unfolded new hopes and aspirations of a kind never experienced before. My life is now more regulated.I find pleasure in things which I never even noticed before. I have all the time in the world to give fruition to my hobbies and desires which were lying beneath my subconscious mind. I am now 78 years old and leading a happy life. The whole day I am busy. The day starts with reading a news paper. After breakfast I make phone calls to my friends and relatives. I dress up neatly. I have seen some old people sitting in their quilt the whole day. They do not bother to change their clothes. I sit with my lap top. I can sit the whole day in front of the lap top, without getting bored.I play games on 'mind jolt games' and 'scrabble' and have a blog. Occasionally I play cards with my husband.I do not sleep during day time.
