Many Don’t Feel Old

Many people at age 100 and over say they do not feel old in their minds and in their spirits.

Centenarians feel mature as far as years lived, wisdom gleaned and experience gained – but they do not feel old in the sense of being worn out and used up.

The large number of centenarians who state that they do not consider themselves old leads researchers to believe that there must be something here for us to pay attention to and appreciate.

Billy Earle, at 105 says “Well what age do I feel?

I’ve determined it’s around thirty.

I don’t think I’ve ever felt like fifty.”

Adds Billy, “To my mind, I’m sometimes thirty, fifty, or sixty.

On bad days, I may feel like seventy, but whatever, I do not feel 100 years plus.”
