Childlike Maturity

My doctor doesn’t use the word ‘ageing’ with me.  He says “maturing”.

Unfortunately while my body is maturing my mentality is not.

Or, fortunately, depending on how you look at it.

I see things I want to try.  Do.  Experience.

And like a child I believe I can.

I believe I should.

I believe I need to.

My doctor might wish for my mental maturity to catch up with my physically maturing (not aging mind you) body.

Who wouldn’t want to do this?
