So you may have heard about a new study that males don’t grow up until the age of 43 OR 11 years later than women. I don’t know, but do we ever grow up? I guess we become wiser, but I don’t want to grow up too fast!
At the same time, I;m am not going to try to hang on to the past either. I am kind of facing this tonight. I am taking y 14-year-old and my 9-year-old and their friends to a concert and to meet the band backstage. I honestly do not know this kids music but I have heard of him. Quite the opposite for the kids. This would be like meeting a rock god to them!
I still feel hip enough to carry it off for sure as this has been my job for almost 30 years in radio. But I am going to look a little out-of-place in the picture… “who’s the old-looking guy in the picture?” is what comes to mind. But honestly, it does not bother me. I will act like a grown up, but I am going to still feel like a kid when I am there.
That may be the difference maker. I think when we all start to “let go” of those things that make us do “immature” things, it will be better for all. I am NEVER going to look like, have as much hair as, or be in the same condition as that high school year book picture…EVER. Time to let go!
