I’m not getting old, who me?
I do cart wheels and somersaults
over those I meet.
They’re half my age
and double my strength
but I’m not comparing much.
I can touch my toes,
skip the panty hose and
stand tall without a hunch.
I don’t do lunch,
play golf or bridge,
but dance and write
to my hearts delight.
You’ll find me on the mountain
gasping up the hill,
I’ll say hello and we’ll chat awhile.
and when I reach the top,
I’ll slide down on my bottom
and hit the couch and flop.
I’m not getting old who me?
Now where are my keys?
What was your name?
No, I’m not getting old.
Happy Tuesday Everyone.
I was working with someone the other day and she put me to shame. I could have felt bad when I tried to lift the same weight and couldn’t. Instead I looked at her and said “Damn girl, I need your trainer”. 🤣 We have to work harder as we get older to build muscle and maintain what we have and be smarter and realize our limitations.
With that said, I’ll be doing a Somatic Emotional Release training for Craniosacral Therapy Wed-Sunday so I won’t be working out or working or checking W,P. much, if at all. So don’t take it personally if I don’t read what you’re up to right away but know I’ll be back. If you are interested in what SER is click here.
A quick definition of CST: Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle hands-on technique that uses a light touch to examine membranes and movement of the fluids in and around the central nervous system. We also use bones as levers to create space. Relieving tension in the central nervous system promotes a feeling of well-being by eliminating pain and boosting health and immunity.
LOVE Ben Platt and this music video. I’ll never forget seeing him in New York with our daughters in Dear Evan Hansen. It was incredible! Enjoy!❣️
Have a great week until Fri-Yay Funday when I will be posting then.
Blessings of Love Always All Days,
You’re not getting old, definitely not. I can assure. The enthusiasm and loving attitude you have is exceptional.
And wow! I didn’t know about Craniosacral therapy. Will learn more about it.
Have an amazing workout and weekend, Cindy.

More power to you, my friend! Agreed, aging should be about pushing a little harder rather than slowing down – most folks have it wrong! Hope your workshop weekend is going really well. Oh, I love the humor of your poem’s last few lines! 🌞

Enjoyed the lively poem and thoughts on aging – such good stuff here Cindy
So glad to hear Yvette!!! thought you would get the sentiments my friend! Thank a lot🤗🥰
Have you ever read the little poem called “wonderful you” by Kate Gleeson? Well it is a totally different topic but your poem here about age had the same rhythm and credence (in my mind it did) and love true humor with the keys at the end
Here it is —
Wonderful You (by Kate Gleeson)
One day Big Bear said to Small Bear,
“There’s something you should know…
I made a wish, and you came true, and now I love you so.
You’re the colors in my rainbow, the honey in my tea…
You’re butterflies and lullabies, you’re everything to me!
You’re bright blue skies on sunny days when we take a walk at noon.
You’re shooting stars on summer nights, you’re a ring around the moon.
Let’s hug the trees and ride the breeze, let’s gather stars and share them.
We’ll talk to birds and learn their words, we’ll string some shells and wear them.
Let’s name the clouds and dream out loud, let’s ask a fox to tea.
We’ll thank the sun, and just for fun, we’ll wave to bumblebees.
You are my child, my precious one – special in every way.
I’m filled with the wonder of wonderful you, and I love you more each day.
oh that is sooo beautiful and moving Yvette. Thanks for sharing it with me 💖
It is one of my favs – read it to my niece and stepdaughter in mid 1990s and then to my boys – and maybe someday will read it grandkids
It really is beautiful… thanks for sharing it with me. What a lovely tradition-:)💕
You’re really going to live forever aren’t you
what a sight it would be.. lol
Getting more tired on young age🙈
lol… not you … you’re too young no? 🙊
Love it 😀 you go girl!!
Hello to my fitness model. You are my inspiration to go back to working my body. Push me more, please.
so happy to be so …. now get your arse moving …. LOL! how about those Giants. They need you so stay strong!!!
