Yep, another year has come and gone. It could be easy to get lost in the quicksand trap of "I'm old". There has always been a perception of if you are WHATEVER age, you should act a certain way, you should be a certain this or that, you either can or can't do certain things. First off, everyone is on their OWN path. So because persons A's life doesn't look like person B's, doesn't mean that one is right and the other is wrong.  It just means it is what it is.  And please don't fall into the trap of I'm 22 so I'm supposed to be crazy and not care, or I'm 35 and should be married, have 2.5 kids and the white picket fence. But let's get to "age as an excuse" thing. I get asked all the time about what I do and why or how. It all comes down to one thing, age does not mean that I can't do it. I don't even let that slip into my mind. As a fire captain, we would go to all kinds of incidents: simple ones, and life-threatening ones.  The life-threatening incidents could be anything and very very crazy and they would NEVER care if you were a young or an old firefighter who was coming to respond. It is just there and you need to make things happen. Your options are either to stand back and let the incident blow up on you because are too old, or you pull your big kid boot up and go to work. Look, I'm not saying that I don't get sore, or that I can recover as fast I could when I was younger but the more times you make excuses then the LESS you will be able to achieve. If you want something, don't let anything stop you, including age. Live your life to the fullest until you aren't living anymore:)
