Usually when you ask someone their age you are of course referring to when they were born but there is another type of “age”. It is not how many years you’ve been around but how old you “act”. We’ve all met an older person that behaves like a teenager and we all know someone that seems mature beyond their years.
Have you ever heard someone referred to as having an “old soul”? This is a person that speaks and behaves very maturely even though they may actually be quite young. I have met some very bright children and talking to some of them is like talking to someone in their 60’s!
Remember the saying “You’re only as old as you feel”? I believe that is completely true. Youth is in the spirit and cannot be measured in years. Here’s an interesting and fun age test that you can take on the internet. It only takes a few minutes and it is designed to tell you how old you behave. I took it and was surprised at the result! So what do you think - Are you an “old fogey” or a child at heart? The answer might surprise you too!
