Age is just a number

Hmm, I understand there are people with whom we never feel an age gap. When they express themselves, we feel like they are a kind of our own reflection. So nothing can inject a pause while talking with them.

People come and leave our life without leaving a mark of their own. In such a world it was so special to meet this young lady. (No Ash, it’s not on you, but your mom.. πŸ˜‰ )

Yes, she is really young, young in her thoughts, and more over well aware on the thoughts running through our heads.

I felt as if I am talking to someone of my age, and ya, she also should have felt the same.. πŸ˜‰

    Some people are very adaptive , filled with enthusiasm all the time. And that’s what makes them feel younger inside.. And that’s what matters ..isn’t it .

    Very truly said akhila ,I totally agree .That our thoughts are define our age not the years we have been on this earth.
    My grandmother had always been supportive and understanding about my “things” that I used to be surprised sometimes.She was more open minded than my parents .

    Age is simply a number but people who are old too can have hearts of a young person and it is so nice to talk to anyone without seeing their age. Very well written Akhila.

    I agree with this. When it comes to friendship, age is but a number. I’ve been blessed to have friends of varying age ranges and they never ever belittle because age.

    The difference is seen sometimes when young people say ” I am only 20 and have just started to live life ” while someone else who is in their eighties says “I am past 80 and still living!

    Reblogged this on pins & ashes and commented:
    It is something to be written about. This time round, it is Akhila who has written about MJ in a blog post. I’m in top mood because the feeling is mutual.

    I used to always laugh out when she used to refer to us as real life friends as opposed to mere virtual pals. I never understood it was true until I walked into her home. It felt like walking into a somebody’s home I had known for I don’t know how long, and feeling absolutely comfortable anywhere inside it, with her and her son. With some people it just seems that way. MJ says you two are gonna begin a friendship from now on! πŸ™‚ When Akhila and Amma were grossed in their talk, her son and I dribbled basket balls, and talked a ton about a lot of other things. Age is not a number .. of course! πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

    Age is indeed a number. I have an aunty-friend who turned 76 this year, God bless her heart. To this day, I admire her young mind, her travels, and her fitness. She is a pleasure to spend your time with. Be young at heart!

    Yes. Well said Akhila.. Age is just a number so that we can mark our day on a calendar and celebrate it as a birthday.
    And yes, it feels awesome to meet such people with whom we feel connected on a deeper level irrespective of age, as it is very rare. I am glad that you had a beautiful time.. God bless.

    Good evening. πŸ™‚

    Hey nice post…….When you talk about age , more or less each one is bothered about their own acceptance…..may it be job, partners, friends, enemies, etc etc….. She is a simple medium of being acceptable or not…..
