Growing Younger

Growing Young imageIt feels so great when people you haven’t seen for a while greet you with,  “You look ten years younger!”  It’s been happening so much to me lately, I decided I actually am growing younger – which deserves to be sung about!

What are your thoughts about it? Do you think it’s possible, or am I deluding myself? Have you experienced growing younger? If so, we’d all like to read your comments! To get the discussion going, here’s a song …  I’ve still to record it, but there’s plenty of time –  I’ll still be singing it fifty years from now 🙂

Growing Young With You
© 2009 Radha Sahar

As the sun is setting, we talk about growing old
How people go quiet, they slow down
And set into a mould
But we are far from setting, our love is fresh & new
It’s summer. We have come in from the cold

I’m growing young with you – how wonderful!
No need to go the old way we’re expected to
I’m feeling young with you, so beautiful!
I’ll dance with you until our song is sung
I’ll still be young with you

Vast spaces open out in me, deeper every day
My body’s growing taller instead of shrinking away
A flood of life expanding. No winter dark or grey
The power of love reversing time a way

Every day is born anew, clear and sparkling bright
And every star in the sky shines for us tonight
Thankfulness has got me. This only came to be
Coz you are into being young with me

I’m growing young with you – how wonderful!
No need to go the old way we’re expected to
I feel so young with you and you’re so beautiful!
I’ll love you till our children’s children grow
And have children of their own
I’ll still be young with you

Until we turn at least a hundred and ten
And the cycle starts again
I’ll still be young with you

  2. Very interesting “poem”/storry, I think everyone wants to be young(((
    Thank you for good mood.

  3. I don’t want to be younger or look younger. But I do want to be a great example of whatever age I am (now 63).

    • Thanx 4 yr comments … wonderful self-acceptance – the ideal way to be! I relate – I just enjoy coming from a humorous stance, dealing with small things like watching my physical body changing beyond recognition! 🙂

    You guys must have gotten all the brains in the family…and…not only that….you are just sooo sweet.

    • You are too modest yourself Marg – not only have you a great cerebrum but you got all the beauty in the family!!!

  6. I haven’t experienced growing younger BUT I feel 20 years younger than I am! but with a whole lot more wisdom and smarts. I wish I knew then what I know now – boy would I have had some fun! I’m having it now instead!

    Great blog!

  7. I can’t belive that you produced all the function to share this! Awesome. Without Bloggers like you, we would by no means get so superb information’s!

    Very nice site!

  9. So many great comments here on “Growing Younger”. Very true that it starts in your mind and your heart. Love and being loved is an important component as well.
    I do happen to be in the business of Beauty/Skin Care and Fitness. And I am a Baby Boomer as well.
    So if you have the other things in place and you want to play a bit with looking as young as you feel and love… Come check out some info on my site!
    Radha, BabyBoomerGirl, you are an inspiration when it comes to the mind and the heart!

  10. Very good writing. I am glad your posting that. I hope you can accept my apology for my less good English Skills, I am from France and English is sort of new to me. I will bookmark your blog and keep reading.

  11. What a great thing to be talking about.
    I am 31 years old, so just a ‘spring chicken’ some might say. But I too look at my hands next to those of my smooth gorgeous 7 year old daughters, and marvel at the passage of the physical realm in relation to the inner realm.
    Saying if I could be that young again but still have all that I have learnt in my growth within me!
    What have I learnt really? I am learning that my heart is where I connect most closely with who I really am, and the heart knows no concept of time.

  12. Hi Radha,

    It has been a while since I contacted you. I see you’re still busy inspiring me at least, and from what I see more Baby Boomers.

    Bonnie Mc Farland said it in her comment like I would have said it.

    “Yes, It is possible to look younger (than you are) while growing older.

    I think, it’s true when you’re perfectly alright with who you are. For me it’s more the way I feel.

    Not feeling stress anymore lately and feeling that it’s not my business what others think of me, but it’s very important what I think and know of myself.

    I’ve always looked much younger that I was/am anyway.
    But I feel no stress lately and I sleep so great and feel very energized every day.

    I received this quote today in one of those silly chain emails for “International Incredibly Good Looking Very Smart Women Days”. I usually ignore these things, but it made me laugh out loud, so thought I’d share it on this topic.

    “Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming ‘WOOO HOOOOO what a ride!”

  14. Hi, Radha!

    Yes, I do think it is possible to look younger while growing older. I’ve seen people get the “clarity face-life” right in front of my eyes as they’ve gotten clear about what “lights them up” (what energizes & enlivens them) and gone into action to follow their lights.

    P.S. I’ve had your email from months ago & appreciate you visiting my blog & nudging me to visit yours.

  15. I too have been told I look 10 years younger. It is definitely possible to experience getting younger because age is a direct correlation of your state of mind.

    Great site, I will come here often!

  16. Brenda

    Well Radha, you really have found the keys to living well – congraulations. I appreciate so much that you share these thoughts as it is inspiring to see how life can and should be for all of us.

    I agree with what Graham has said about love and positivity being an essential element. I would like to add I believe love of self must be there before you can be truly happy and grow younger.

    Personally, I feel I am growing younger too. I see so many women I grew up with and cannot believe how old they look not just in physical appearance, but in how they live.

    I do not have the resiliency required to bounce back from the really hard life events that appear out of nowhere – like they did this week.

    So…you are my inspiration this week and I will be printing off your words. Thank you!

  17. Nice one, BBG. I know 2 others I would say the same thing of. 1. Dad – he’s looking younger at 80 than he was a couple of years ago, active, social, and vital 2. a friend, Andy Thompson, who suffered terrible burns in an accident a few years ago. He’s a very good song writer and was told he would never play the guitar again… well, it’s nice to know the experts can be completely wrong! He’s playing and writing really well again – maybe it has something to do with the fact that he’s met a lovely lady…

    Einstein said time was a relative concept. I think this is not only true in the strict ‘physics’ sense, but also in a metaphysical sense and the old saying ‘you are only as old as you feel’ is very true. Love and positivity, I believe, truly makes you feel young and THIS is reality. Temporal time is a physical concept that relates to our orbiting around a star in a particular location in an unimaginable huge universe – it has nothing to do with our actual sense of age.

    So, yes. I think one can grow younger and I congratulate you and look forward to being in a similar space.

    See you earlier! 🙂
