Hi Peter,

Glad you liked the Poem.

As far as Age is concerned, it's just a State of Mind, but then, so is Everything, if you really think about it.  The real difference between Success & Failure is your State of Mind.  Here's a couple of short Poems to illustrate this. 

__________

Age is a quality of mind.
If you left your dreams behind, if hope is cold,
If you no longer look ahead,
If your ambition's fires are dead,
Then you are old.
But if from life you take the best,
And if in life you keep the jest, if love you hold,
No matter how the years go by,
No matter how your birthdays fly
You are not old.

   -Virginia Ely-

__________

If you think you are beaten, you are,
If you think that you dare not, you don't,
If you'd like to win, but think you can't,
It is almost a cinch you won't.
If you think you'll lose, you've lost,
For out in the world you'll find
Success begins in a fellow's will -
It's all in the state of mind.
Full many a race is lost,
Before ever a step is run.
And many a coward fails,
Before his work's begun.
Think big, and your deeds will rise.
Think small, and you'll fall behind.
Think that you can, and you will.
It is all in the state of mind.
If you think you are outclassed, you are;
You've got to think high to rise;
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.

Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man;
But sooner or later the man who wins,
Is the fellow who thinks he can.

  -Walter D. Wintle-

My own personal age stopped at 39.  I simply add years of experience with each passing Birthday.  In March of this year, I reached 39 with 22 years of experience.

So as each Birthday passes, I always remind myself of what Marice Chevalier once said, " Growing old isn't so bad, once you consider the alternative."  Of course, as the years pass, and Gravity wears & tears on the old bones & joints, I'm also reminded of another favorite quote, from Leon Eldred, "If I had known I was going to live so long, I'd have taken better care of myself."

Once again, hope that your Birthday was Truly Special and that in the year ahead , all of your Fondest Wishes come true.

Have A Beautiful Week,

Phil

“There may be trouble all around, but I am calling you to a place of peace. Be still and know that I am God. Come to Me, and I will give you wisdom, strength, and grace for everything you face." Psalm 46:10

Hi Phil,

Thanks for coming back. I can't agree more. I'd go one step further and say it's state of mind and attitude. They are very close but with a difference.

You're a good counter. I mentioned in a previous post that my mother-in -law claimed every birthday was her 21st and she didn't add on the years. :) The kvetches of aging are inevitable but mind set and the right attitude overcomes all that.

Loved the additional poems and they are all so RIGHT.

Thanks my friend & Shalom,

Peter
