50 Questions that will Free Your Mind - #1
I caught wind of this a while back when a fellow writing friend started using the list as inspiration for blogging. I liked how she dedicated a blog post to each question. I’ve looked at other blogs that try to tackle 5 or 6 questions per blog post and it just feels like they’re in a rush to answer.
How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
The world “ageless” comes to mind when I try to answer this question. It’s been hard to think of myself as a 26 year old because I don’t feel any different than when I was 20 or 16 or 10. Yes I’ve “grown up” or “matured” in that the way I see the world is different but I don’t feel different so I feel ageless.
Not that I’m gifted with awesome genetics like some women are and I tend to spend very little time in front of the mirror trying to perfect my face. I have noticed small and subtle changes in my skin and hair that have reminded me that I have reached a certain age, though I would say I look my age, even though I had a salesman try to peddle me Dead Sea products for a lot of money because I have wrinkles in my face.
Seriously, those are laugh lines.
But I was curious to see what the internetz would reveal when I searched “ageless” and lo and behold the search results almost exclusively had something to do with cosmetic surgery or spas. I got the impression that a person is only allowed to feel ageless once they appear as such.
I don’t think I’ll be integrating that concept into my thought process. I enjoy feeling like how I always have, at every age that I have been.
