This text really hits the mark. Try to read it slowly! I’m not sure who wrote it, but I think it might be someone older! At first, I read it fast, but when I got to the third sentence, I stopped and read it slowly, thinking about each word. It makes you stop and think.

And then, it’s like winter comes. Time goes by fast, and you don’t notice the years passing. It feels like I just got married and started my life with my partner, but now it’s like a long time ago, and I wonder where all those years went. I remember how things were back then, and all the things I wanted to do. But now, it’s the winter of my life, and it surprises me. How did I get here so quickly? Where did my youth go?

I remember seeing older people over the years and thinking they were a long way from where I was. I thought winter was so far off that I couldn’t really understand it or imagine what it would be like. But now, my friends are retired and getting gray. They move slower, and they look older. Some are in better shape than me, and some are worse. But, like me, they’re starting to show their age. We’ve become the older folks we used to see and never thought we’d be.

Now, every day, just taking a shower is a big accomplishment! And napping is not just a nice thing anymore—it’s something I have to do! If I don’t decide to nap on my own, I just fall asleep where I am!

So, now I’m in this new part of my life, not ready for all the aches and pains and the loss of strength to do the things I wanted to do. But, at least I know when this earthly winter is over, it’s not really over. A new adventure will start!

Yes, I have things I wish I hadn’t done and things I wish I had done. But there are also many things I’m happy to have done. It’s all part of a lifetime.

So, if you’re not in your winter yet, remember, it will come faster than you think. So, do what you want to do in your life quickly! Don’t wait too long!

Life goes by fast, so do what you can today. You can’t be sure if this is your winter or not! You don’t know if you’ll see all the seasons of your life, so live for today. Say the things you want your loved ones to remember, and hope they appreciate and love you for all you’ve done for them in the past years!

Life is a gift to you, and the way you live it is your gift to those who come after. Make it a fantastic one.

Live well! Enjoy today! Have fun! Be happy! Have a great day!

Remember, real wealth is health, not pieces of gold and silver.

Live happily this year and every year!

Lastly, think about this:

-today is the oldest you’ve ever been, yet the youngest you’ll ever be. So, enjoy this day while it lasts.

-Your kids are becoming like you,

-going out is good but coming home is better,

-you forget names, but that’s okay because others forget they even knew you!

-You realize you’re never going to be really good at anything,

-the things you used to care to do, you don’t care about anymore, but you care that you don’t care.

-You sleep better in a lounge chair with the TV on than in bed.

-You miss the days when everything worked with just an “ON” and “OFF” switch.

-You tend to use more short words, like “what?”…”when?”…”what?”

-Now that you can afford expensive jewelry, it’s not safe to wear it anywhere.

-Everything they sell in stores is “sleeveless”! What used to be freckles are now called liver spots.

-Everybody whispers.

-You have three sizes of clothes in your closet, two of which you will never wear.

-But, old is good in some things: old songs, old movies, and best of all, old friends! Stay well, old friend! Share this with other old friends and let them laugh in agreement!

It’s not about what you collect but what you share that shows what kind of life you’ve lived.
