    The actual number isn't important....

    People who are positive and grateful for what they have are young

    People who are negative and complain about what they don't have are old

    • Old to me is that which is rapidly becoming useless. I would say that the less I activate, motivate, create, and respond to the call of personal interaction, the older I become.

      Old is what we never want to be labeled because old is close to the end of use. And none of us want to wear our own expiration date.

      I chose entrepreneurship over further education despite being laughed at by my friends and family..

      I recently hit the "RESTART" button on my life, read my personal blog to find out how I did it :)

      I agree, I've met ninety year old people who are full of life, while some people who are in their fifties behave like they are waiting for their grave.

    I am 65 yrs old. Pardon the "old" qualifier after my age. Being old can be psychological or real. Except for my knees which hurt from osteoarthritis, I don't want to be considered old. I can still play tennis, go the the gym, snorkel, write and, sometimes, get laid.

    Old is all in your mind, and maybe in your back when you get out of bed in the morning.
    But in all seriousness, we all get old one day and start to change the way we act and the way we dress. I think of it as becoming more mature and understanding life better.

    I love to see old people that are motivated and still ready to learn and hate to see young people that are lazy and not ambitious. Even they are young, their way of thinking is old-fashioned.
    Have many older students that are doing extremely well in internet marketing and are more than happy with their new lifestyle!

    Old is when you have a sense of fulfillment and you are peaceful. Old is when you feel like you've done so much that you can just live life on cruise control. I believe old is a mindset.

    I know people that are 70-80 years old and still live life as if they're young. Of course your body will let you know when you're old and so will others, but the only thing that matters is how you feel and what you believe...

    i am currently 35 ..and i felt much older a year ago ..i have always felt older than i really was .

    but i have activated my bodies natural ability to heal .. and i have also made several changes .. there will be many more change i will make in the next few years to get in the mode of aging but not looking older or haveing the issues of age that we see around us .

    seeing what retirement does to people and what people in long term care or going in and out of hospitals well everything they worked for get sucked away is not for me .

    changing ones mindset to healing and maintaining good health and reserch what people who get very old but stay healthy do .

    old can happen at any age ..when you hurt getting out of bed when you need a handfull of pills to make up for the damage you have done to your body ..when you are phyisically and mentally unable to work any more ..

    the first thing to stay young ..is to find a reason to get out of bed every morning. then find work that keep you moving and healthy ..then build connections with people around you .. and eat a diet ..you could have really only eaten prior to 70 years ago in most of the world

    Old? What's that? Nah, really, like you said, I know people who are old at 30 and others like my grandma who are not old at 86.
    It's a very very personal thing, that has to do with both mindset and health.
    Personally I see 80+ as old. I'm 37 (38 in 2 weeks) now.

    Being old is not mainly about the age. It is also affected by the mind, health, behavior, and even the status in the community.

    I am 24 and continually tell myself that I am almost a quarter of a century old and it freaks me out! I feel like I was in highschool only a year or two ago but its actually been 6 years since graduating.

    It made me feel really old when I just watched the VMAs and only knew who Justin Timberlake and Kanye west was. Not just me but my gf didn't know some of the people either

      eh eh,
      I know exactly what you mean!
      When you see "celebrities" ... that you haven't even heard of!
      Many times it's a good thing, especially these days, you know?
      Some of these celebrities are really lame!!

      Anyway, it's not that you're getting old. You're just becoming more experienced in this world. The longer you stay on this earth, the wiser you become. You know, when you start having memories of "20 years ago", sure you'll freak out initially (I still do - considering my oldest memory is approx 30 years old...!), but it is a great feeling too, as you realise of how much great life you've had, how many things you've had the fortune to see and witness, how many people you've had the luck to meet and perhaps influence...

      Don't get scared. Get excited!!!

    I will be 55 in 3 months so I guess old to me would be 56. Having had 2 heart attacks before I was 38 I never imagined I would still be alive anyway, so each new year is a blessing! :-)

    I was going to say, old is always about 10 years older than I am now.

    each new year is a blessing!
    Totally agree. And we're so blessed to be living in these times. Just a few decades ago it was almost unheard of for someone to live to 100. Now people do it routinely.

    What's old to you?
    It's definitely a moving target.

    When I was 20, I thought 50 was old.

    Now that I'm almost 40, 50 seems young.

    80, maybe?

    But mostly "old" is an attitude...as is "young".

    Yeah - when are we old...?
    My Father-in-Law just turned 80. and he got himself a Tablet to stay connected. Or my Mother, she is 72... just bought a new Laptop because the old one was so annoyingly slow and did not do it anymore...
    of course, both my Mother and my Father-in-Law have some different views on life in general - I mean, they are older than me (I'm 43...) but does it mean they are old? NO. I guess, we grow old when we don't want to adapt and change anymore... Yes, when we are mentally stuck - only THEN we are old!
