Three stages of life for everyone of us....

Three stages of life. A young graduate finds difficult in gaining employment because he has no working experience. A middle aged person complains that the world is too competitive when he has to face many challenges. Wait until they are like my age, they might not even be able to get up.

Once you pass the age of sixties, the aging process comes rapidly. I remember when I was much younger, without exercising my physical could still be strong. My muscle was firm and my stamina was good. Today! If I missed a week of not going to the gym, my muscle would easily get loosen, making me feel lousy and lethargy. Not running for two weeks, my stamina might deteriorate. Pushing myself to exercise at our age isn't easy either. We need a lot of determination and encouragement from the within and outside factors to maintain our regular exercising. Don't believe me! Walk in to a gym, you could hardly see any senior veteran doing their workout.

The aging process not only affect the body, we could see the changes on our skin and the face. In order to look good and tidy, I have to learn to beautify myself with all types of cream and lotion. I have to be brave to let beautician to massage my facial and body. Finally is our brain. Aging slows the thought and memory. I have to keep reminding myself to live a positive minded person. I have to be courageous to feel young as ever. I must not fail to fall in love again.

To the young graduate and the middle aged man, your problems are not problem. They are just life experiences everyone has to go through in their lives. If you could sustain and clear all these obstacles of the present, I'm sure you would be stronger to prepare yourself for the aging that will come in the later part of your life. I'm at my final stage and I'm also looking forward to face it without complain or sorrow. For I know all of us have only one life to live. Therefore make the best of what we are....

So true - “We come fresh to the different stages of life, and in each of them we are quite inexperienced, no matter how old we are” - Fran├žois de la Rochefoucauld quotes
