Now that you're older.....
How do you see yourself and the world around you and times past?

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

Long running soap opera with an inconsistent and irrational plot, but still just interesting enough to keep it from getting cancelled.

RE: Now that you're older.....
My life's probably like a romantic comedy Hobo

Now that I'm older: More expansive worldview, I don't sweat the small stuff as much, I live the life I want instead of trying to make other people happy (church, God, family), I am much more comfortable in my own skin.

I stopped giving two fucks about society's definition of what a woman should look like and stopped watching every bit of food I ate and stopped exercising like a crazy person just to be "super skinny".

I was 103 pounds at 5'6'' and was told by the modeling agency I went to back in the day to lose five pounds! Now I eat and workout in a healthy manner (with the occasional cupcake here and there Wink ) and have toned curves. I get much more attention from men now that I have some T and A than I did when I was super skinny starving myself and working out like a crazy person. I wish I could have told my younger self that.

Disbelief, disrespect, disgust or with a longing for times long gone from a society now driven relentlessly by greed, mindless technology, a lack of compassion, political corruption, global corporatists, and violence as the "answer" for everybody's problems.

Funnily (?) enough, I can now hear in my own words those of my father more than 50 years ago. The world now belongs to the youthful and the self-centred and the mercenary. And as my dear old mother used to say, "You can't put an old head on a young body". As a callow youth, I used to laugh at her saying this whenever I—invariably—fucked something up.

I'm also surprised at the overall lack of genuine societal involvement that Gen Y displays as they cruise through life buried within the bogus "world" of their touch-screens and earbuds. They complain about the Baby Boomers fucking up the world and its ecology etc, but then do SFA themselves to try and ameliorate these usually incorrectly perceived, purported "errors" of ours.

And yes... I'm not all that satisfied with the dire direction that society is taking, and/or my lack of any power to alter it. When you're 55+ and have grey hair and glasses, suddenly you're invisible apparently. And on the employment scrap heap too.

/end of rant. Angry

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

RE: Now that you're older.....
Optimist in youth.
Pessimist through experience.
Nihilist to stop going insane.

The things that change throughout my life and before it... technology... society... medicine.... etc....are all so superficial.

On the grand scheme of things I dont think anythings changed.

I feel so much, and yet I feel nothing.
I am a rock, I am the sky, the birds and the trees and everything beyond.
I am the wind, in the fields in which I roar. I am the water, in which I drown.

I'm continually amused and embarrassed by how much of a naïve child I was even a year ago. A year from now, I'll be amused and embarrassed by how much of a naïve child I am today.

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?
