When do you qualify for old?

When do qualify for old?  Is it based on age or attitude? I do believe that old is both chronological age as well as spiritual age.  How do we stay young at heart?

When do qualify for old? Is it based on age or attitude? My age still rounds down to 50, I certainly don’t feel old. Yet I remember when my parents were 50 and they seemed ancient. I do believe that old is both chronological age as well as spiritual age. How do we stay young at heart?

For me staying active helps immensely. I also know if I can manage my stress and worrying that I feel younger. I have always worried about my kids but I have moved from worrying about where they are each hour and when they are getting home to worrying about how they are doing with relationships and college. I worry about if they are happy. I know my worrying doesn’t change their circumstances- but it’s so engrained that I can’t detach and not worry.

Personally, I know I worry less when I have a plan. That includes a financial plan. Our financial plan is now focused beyond just paying for our mortgage and three kids’ college tuition. We are also planning for our retirement. Our plan is still fluid but starting to map it out means I am less stressed. I have a sense of how many years I need to work and what our “paycheck”. In retirement might look like.

Do you get less stressed when you have a plan? What does your plan for retirement look like?
