When I used to moan about not wanting to get old, my Dad would wisely say to me, “The alternative isn’t so great my dear.”  Geez, I sure miss that wonderful man with his well-timed words to set me back on track.

I recently experienced a rude awakening as a reminder that gravity is an unforgiving mistress and needed to give myself permission to laugh at the circumstances.  The alternative of lamenting my encroaching years, falling into a deep depression and feeling shamed just did not seem to be something dear old Dad would have said to be the best choice.

This story about choosing to find the funny has brought some levity and laughs to others who have had similar experiences, who understand the challenge of growing older and wider (no, that is not a typo, I did not mean wiser) and even those who have yet to reach that cruel stage of life.  But this “cruel stage of life” is a gift from a Higher Power so I will gratefully accept it with all it’s aches, pains and gravity-induced shifts in body and metabolism.

I am a regular author for Life As A Human, a human interest magazine for evolving minds, so many thanks to my editor, Gil Namur, for helping me share this with our readers.  I hope you enjoy my story and burn off a few calories with a belly laugh!
