What Did The One-Liners Mean? The Joyous Conclusion

The August 1st Switch was great for me. I loved contemplating the phrases I heard about ages. Oddly enough – or should I say, “As usually happens” I didn’t get what I’d expected.

I’ve listed  the rest of the one-liners I’d originally planned to send you one at a time at the bottom of this post in place of the fashion and entertainment tip. Those return with my next post.

I’m sure you quickly figured out that I was pointing out that all ages have their joys and challenges, but of late it’s older people that get the gaff about their age.

I’ve spoken about some of the things that have bugged me in this area and I will take a stand (or a computer) to stop them. I refer to hardly being able to find a kind birthday card for someone over 50 and trillions of articles talking about having to look younger. Looking well and gorgeous is great by me, but why younger? I still like the looks of all ages, however I find I’m now more attracted to the looks of male contemporaries than the younger fellows.

What did I get from contemplating the phrases re age?  I was truly listening to more live conversations – on the bus, at meetings, etc. – than reading writings about what people were saying about a group to each other, I made it a point to listen for this.

  • I totally got that be it deriding the age group, or applauding it – the phrases mean absolutely nothing!
    • For one thing, you can’t talk about people as a group – unless they chose to join the group.  Each person is a person. Within the “group” everyone isn’t alike. Plus, each person’s perception of what they’re seeing in the group they’re referring to is different.

What did I get about the phrases re age that were totally unexpected?

  • I heard much more kvetching about Infants and Toddlers than I heard about any other group!!!! Can you believe that?
    • I could write a whole post about the joy that Infants & Toddlers in my building bring to me. Those screaming and crying sounds people were objecting to are what I call “delicious attempts at communication!.

 

Here’s the list of the rest of the One-Liners

  • How have phrases you’ve heard or read, that were being used to praise and applaud “The 20 Somethings”, affected your thoughts?
  • How have phrases you’ve heard or read, that were being used to disparage and/or make fun of  “Teenagers”, affected your thoughts?
  • How have phrases you’ve heard or read, that were being used to praise and applaud “Teenagers” affected your thoughts?
  • How have phrases you’ve heard or read, that were being used to disparage and/or make fun of  “Pre-Teens”, affected your thoughts?
  • How have phrases you’ve heard or read, that were being used to praise and applaud “Pre-Teens” affected your thoughts?
  • How have phrases you’ve heard or read, that were being used to disparage and/or make fun of  “Toddlers”, affected your thoughts?
  • How have phrases you’ve heard or read, that were being used to disparage and/or make fun of  “Toddlers”, affected your thoughts?
  • How have phrases you’ve heard or read, that were being used to disparage and/or make fun of  “Infants”, affected your thoughts?

  1. I have so enjoyed this series ofposts Bobbie. Thank you for bringing my attention to the idea that no matter what age… We all have our chsllanges. Younger is not “better”… Neither is older “better”. Weare individuals that are expressing theDivine Spirit inside and we all do that differently regardless of age. You are always an inspiration to me.
    many blessings,
    Rev. Yolanda aka Roger

  2. Thank you so much Roger. I think we’re a mutual admiration society! You’re a minister of joy, peace and creativity. AND you’re ageless – well you were whatever age you were whenever you were it. You live in the “now”
