Doctor, Doctor, Give Me the News . . .
Don't get me wrong. I want to be fit and healthy and active for as long as I can. I still love to run, to play basketball, and throw a football around in the backyard. But I guess I'm coming in to those years when we quit thinking about our bodies in terms of appearance and think more about maintenance. I'm just not showroom quality anymore. I've got dings and dents and more miles than you might expect. All in all, I know I have been blessed with good health and a body with no major breakdowns or accidents. Knock on wood. I feel like I've got many more good miles still in me.
Am I the only one noticing this unwelcomed transition from youthful vigor to middle age maintenance? I'll bet not. Any thoughts or wisdom to share?
