As soon as the ball drops on New Year’s Eve, I will be able to officially say, “I’ll be 30 this year,” which is fine by me. Age, after all, isn’t anything but a number. I have no qualms about getting older. I like myself more and more each year (I think I’m pretty cool, as conceited as that may sound) and I think I’m going to really enjoy being 30. However, I don’t want to get old. I want to be young forever, even why my license says I’m old. Here are a few things that I’ve heard will keep me – and you – young forever.
Be a Child
Just because we are getting older doesn’t mean we have to act like an adult all the time. I’m the first one to admit I’m a little bit overly responsible when it comes to my life and my own kids, but when I’m not with my kids and I know they’re safe, happy, and secure…believe me I will be the first one to let loose and have a good time. If every night was prom night, I’d be so happy. I like to goof off, have fun, be a little silly, and let the ridiculousness show. It keeps me young.
I may look like a 10-year-old boy with my bathing suit on, but that doesn’t mean I’m not worried things will start sagging and bagging at some point. I’m not okay with that, so I simply work out. Exercise keeps us young, makes us look good, and decreases our level of stress. What’s so bad about that?
Embrace the Pale
Now that things like Twilight are cool, I’ve learned to embrace my pale skin. I like to spend time in the sun, but I don’t want cancer or wrinkles and leathery skin, so I wear sunscreen. Instead of complaining about my pale skin, I simply embrace it and pretend to glitter.
