Unlike me, you might be in your 20s or 30s, or yes, even in your 40s, bygone eras for me. Suffice it to say that I don't always feel older, but when I look in the mirror or do heavy labor I'm unused to, the old girl makes her presence known.

Dr. Phil was pretty upset. You could tell by the way he looked away and stiffened when the parents spoke. He was much friendlier to the young girl who was doing great at spilling her guts and taking responsibility for her actions--unlike her parents.
Like me, those parents, as well as the teen, weren't getting any younger. I thought of all the wasted days I had given myself, all those times when I could have been writing or meditating instead of watching some depressing television show.
Once the program finished I did not feel any younger. I wished I'd picked up a good book, or taken that well needed nap, a sure-fire way to dip into the spring of youth.
But I was appreciative of what I had learned. Not to waste a single moment.
