Old age isn’t a penance or a punishment

Old age isn’t a penance or a punishment
It isn’t an end, it’s a beginning. It’s a mortal readjustment.
It is a reward for powering through the abyss of youth and making it to the other side.
While collecting bits of common sense and valuable experience during your journey
It is the time to rise up, resurrect, and rejuvenate the inner child
To grow older successfully, one must never forget what it was like to be young
Live vicariously through the eyes of the young; while dancing quietly in your mind’s eye,
Enjoy the show, at the same time savoring the gathered wisdom of a seasoned human being
These are the good years!
