Age Is Mind Over Matter for ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ Performer — Brian’s Blog [VIDEO]
I have a birthday coming up, and though I'm not feeling it, the horizon is out there somewhere. If I can do half of what the little old lady in this video can do at her age, I have nothing to worry about!
I will turn 59 in about three weeks. I've never really been one to let age bother me. I actually kind of embrace my age.
I think that it's because I have young children, ranging in age from 2 to 17 years old. I don't have time to worry about it. On the other hand, I do realize that I'm not going to live forever. I'll be 75 when my youngest graduates from high school, and my primary focus in the past year or so has been to improve my health to prolong my life a bit.
I ran across a video that really gives me hope. Seventy-nine-year-old Paddy Jones is a contestant on "Britain's Got Talent." She and her dance partner, Nico, managed only a yawn from judge Simon Cowell before things really got moving.
Take a look ...
If I can move like that when I'm 79, I won't have much to worry about. I can't move like that now, so I have something to really look forward to!
