Life is hectic and tired is a common word used on a daily basis. It is not a bad feeling, but it is a warning that your body needs rest. Sometimes, I don’t know how seniors can withstand a daily walk after retirement. Some days I feel like I’m 120 years old, but that happens during hectic weeks. Do you have those days when you can barely make it pass the front door? Your eyes can barely stay open and all you want to do is sleep for 10 days straight. How about when you want to take a shower? I know when I’m tired and I want to take a bath, I go in as soon as I go pass the front door, because if I sit for just a second, I end up sitting for hours. I love my tea after work or a glass of red wine, and just sit, relax, and enjoy my shows on Netflix. Listen to your body, when you feel very tired, just go to sleep (if you can). Your body needs to recharge to continue. Hopefully, when/if I’m an oldie, I won’t feel as tired.
I went to see a short play called, “Old Times.” To summarize it, it’s about a trio of male seniors who meet every year, to catch up on their lives. It was funny, but insightful at the same time. Just last week, my friends and I were wondering, how in the future we’ll probably meet with our kids (if we have any). How do I see myself in the golden years? That is if I’m destined to live that long.
I hope to have accomplished all of my goals; like publishing books, having a family, meeting the wonderful Enya, and getting my picture taken with hundreds of penguins. My goals even go way into the afterlife, where I hope to meet Audrey Hepburn — unless, I end up building the first time machine. All I know is, I’ll be a happy old fart, who will hopefully knit penguin blankets for her grandchildren, and still dance to the Backstreet Boys.
