8 Comments on “The Number Means Something

  1. The number keeps going up but I am along for the ride, so that makes me happy! Millenials….they think so differently, but then the world has changed so much, which is probably what they will say when they get older. The more things change, the more they remain the same.

  2. Younger individuals absolutely started to treat me differently when my hair turned gray/grey. Makes me frustrated at times because I’m solely being judged by that by them. I see older folks who look and act very, very old and I think…am I really in that category now? I look older than my age…used to be the opposite. I have not given up on being healthy at all but my body wishes to “discuss” each effort to do so! I don’t know if, healthy or not, millennials will value our experience and wisdom…may need some more “seasoning” before we get to that point!

    • Chances are when they’re our age they’ll be griping about “those over-privileged kids who expect the world to (fill in the blank).” As for grey hair, I still color mine. I just can’t give in to nature yet!

  3. My knees are packing it in and my lower back. It’s been two months and I still haven’t totally recovered from a fall – that’s because it takes longer when you are older. Age isn’t a state of mind. 🙃

  4. Great post! I’m a millenial (the horror!), but I’m from a time when the phrase “children should be seen and not heard,” was quite common. I think the sentiment is harmful, but I do have a reverence for those with more years of wisdom and experience.

    I think these labels seem helpful when trying to analyze trends among groups, but they run the risk of perpetuating stereotypes. We can, and should, learn from everyone.

    • I agree. Demographics have their place, but they shouldn’t define individuals. And heavens, children should be heard! A time and place for everything, of course, but we should all listen. I can learn from people of all ages, and if I think I can’t, I’m limiting my opportunities. Thank you for your comment#
