Wow, I’m old!

Aging is not a fun process, though there are quite a few advantages that come along with aging, as well. I was thinking recently about the first time I had that “I am old” feeling come over me. I believe I was 22 or 23 at the time, so really, really old.

As a student, walking to class on my college campus, I came across someone I knew from home: a girl I used to babysit. If someone I used to babysit for is now in college, I must be really old!!

Of course, now all the kids I once babysat are parents, professionals, and contributing members of society, and I’m not THAT old!

Do you remember the first time you felt old? Did you have a shocking moment, or was it more gradual? Let’s hear it!
