“You’re never too old too ….” That is how the blog post started, which WordPress coughed up when I pressed their “discover’ button. I expected a chirpy post. Instead, the post read like a moan about ageing. It mentioned its author had been an actor at the age of 25 and from there, things became more and more depressing. I never bothered to finish reading its message.
For earlier that very Sunday – about 6 hours earlier – I was walking along a small shopping street through a drizzle. It was one of those depressing mornings when a steady drizzle ensures the day is grey and you get wet through and through.To highten my misery, it was bone-cold.
I passed a small shop display. I walked on, stopped in my tracks, then turned back to the shop window. I read the cross-stich message, embroidered on a blue-and-white cushion in the shop window. After reading not just the first few words, but the whole message, it felt like the sun was beaming upon me.
I hope to hang on to the sunny feeling the message gave me. Hope it makes you smile too:
Age is an issue of mind over matter.
If you don’t mind,
It doesn’t matter!
