Aging

“Sixty feels exactly like 50, with aching feet and more forgetfulness. (AAA had to come unlock my car this morning, as God is my witness.) But your inside person doesn’t age. Your inside person is soul, is heart, in the eternal now, the ageless, the old, the young, all the ages you’ve ever been.”

At Explore, Anne Lamott shows the positive side of aging wonderfully. I've often marveled at the way my body has changed while I've aged, but the person I see in my mind is the same person I've always been. I'm grateful that she's put my feelings into words for me.
