Where Is The Fountain Of Youth?

This article is about embracing your age, and how to grow older gracefully, while holding on to the support of wisdom.

The evolution between youth and old age seemingly creeps in without warning. As we look in the mirror baffled by the discovery of a gray hair sprouting from the top of our head, like sliver stands of straw.

The unwelcomed appearance of age can begin by burying a parent, or sibling, glancing down at the tiny spots on your hands and realize that a change is in progress, a transformation that you have no control over.

Doctors who research the concept of growing old gracefully say that the fear of aging is a reflection which determines how we view ourselves. Because men value youth, their expectations of stopping the hands of time, may psychologically promote sensitivity among women. Most women believe that maintaining a youthful appearance is the key to captivating the interest of men. Instead of valuing a sense of meaning that reaches out in a spiritual sense, many men and women cater to the flesh and will do almost anything to try and maintain their youth.

The Problem: The hands of time will never cease. The fountain of youth is a mindset found within the acceptance of growing old gracefully. Midlife alternatives can cause emotional pain. Some men may go out and buy a midlife crises red sports car, and leave their wife of many years for a younger woman. Chasing youth through materialistic belongings creates a fantasy masked in superficiality. Some women may dive into plastic surgery. Cosmetic surgery does not give you the confidence that is lacked caused by aging. Confidence is about embracing your age and experiencing the new qualities in life that were not accessible to you during your youth.

Youth has its merits but few older people would go back in time if they couldn't take their wisdom and experience with them! It is said that youth is wasted on the young and it is so true. With that said, it is good to stay young at heart because a youthful spirit is one of hope, daring, exploration, curiosity and learning. When one stops growing, he starts decaying. Keep growing!
