I never thought I would be saying this, but lately I have noticed, with much disappointment, that I now have gray hair. Thankfully it is not evident to the untrained eye because I have blond hair. Whew! But nonetheless, it is there, and not just a strand or two, but a whole shock of it right in front! It reminds me of Madeline Kahn as Elizabeth in Young Frankenstein. Has my life really been that stressful lately that a shock of gray hair is just magically appeared or has it been slowly emerging because of age? Oh well….I guess I must embrace it or cover it up with color. The joy of being a woman and enduring the never-ending cycle of highlighting your hair.
When I was younger I didn’t even think about aging, much less the next day. But as I near the 40 year mark of my life, I find myself thinking more and more about getting older. From gray hair to my aching joints, it is becoming painfully clear that the inevitable is happening! I thought that forty was the new thirty? If that is case, I think I’d rather have back my twenties. At least my body was in great shape!
Since I can’t get back my twenties, I might as well work with what I’ve got! I have to stop putting off going to the gym or at least our Wii fit! I have to admit I’m not getting any younger and if I don’t take the time for exercise today, I know I will have to take time for illness later…so who’s with me? Are you ready to make 2010 the year for getting healthy? I am and I would start today but I’m a self-professed procrasinator! HA!
