A Matter Of Mind......

Sometimes I believe that I am a young woman forever trapped in an aging body. Yet then again there are probably many who feel that way. Although there are times in my life when I have to stop and remind myself that I am 48 years old… Something that usually at the time when I do, it is the last thing on earth I really want to do. As every other part of my being is having the time of my life. I truly am not sure if I will ever get past that part of me…. No matter how old I become chronologically.

Yesterday my day started out somewhat as a downer. It looked as if we were not going to be able to go to the Muse concert as Vincent was not sure if he would make it home in time to drive down to Dallas in time. I had accepted the fact that it more than likely would not happen and as I ran my errands I turned my Muse music up to ease my disappointment. I have to say it did not help. It only made me want to see them more, yet really that did not surprise me. I was at the end of my errands and heading home when Vincent called and said he also was on his way home and we would be heading out as soon as he arrived. I was ecstatic

The concert was phenomenal. I did not think they could get any better after seeing them 7 times prior yet I was mistaken. They definitely have. They have always been a band that is fantastic live and this time was no different. Their light show, their stage format, everything was great. I managed to get a few photos yet my batteries died on me in my camera as I forgot to charge it before… Yet I have plenty of pictures and video from prior times. If you have not noticed I am somewhat of an overzealous Muse fan. Their music lit a fire in me some years back that is hard for me to explain. In some ways they really have been my Muse.

Yet I have to give kudos to where kudos are due. Although I love my boys in the band and yes Matthew Bellamy makes me wish I was ten years younger, my heart belonged to Vincent last night. He drove two hours to work yesterday morning (at 5 am) then two hours home. We then drove to Dallas and back…A three hour trip both ways. We arrived home about 1am in the morning. He was up again this morning at 5:30 am to yet again go to work. That is love guys… I do not know what I did to deserve this man, yet I am so glad that I have him. Those little silly things that are somewhat goofy to ask for yet they mean so much… He always seems to give them to me…

I think the thing that I love most about him is that he always allows me to be myself. No matter how silly that may be. Last night we both rocked out as only two old people could… Singing and dancing to every song Muse played. Looking forward with fingers crossed to the announcement of the lineup for Lollapalooza this year and hoping that once again Muse will headline and we can spend the day front and center like we did a couple years ago. Not even the rain could make us leave that day. Yea… we are a couple of old farts, at least some of the young ones that we meet at times think so. Yet we can rock out with the best of them and a bet better than many.

Like I said, I am not sure if I will ever really “act my age”. To me, any time I do so I feel so out of place. It is not a natural thing…Plus I am having too much fun not doing it. Like they say: Age is a matter of mind…. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.

You rock, old lady! (Ha ha, I can say that because you're younger than me!)

I am so glad you had a great time.
You do indeed have a wonderful man and you are such a cute couple!
I am glad that you act your age, who says that you can not rock out at 48.
I am still 25 in my mind, I just look like an old woman now.
I look in the mirror and sometimes that reflection grabs me and I wonder "who is that old woman and why does she keep following me?"
Have a wonderful day!
Love and hugs.

What a great photo of you and your special guy! You are only as old as you feel. I'm 63...soon to be 63...and I still do things that only a 25 year old might do. Maybe not as physically active, but I do love to joke around, dance around the house to music...and love to engage is silliness.

RA said...

Hah! What does "acting one's age" mean anyway and who invented it? Socrates, the old goat, I'm sure.... :(
You go, girl! :D

I'm not sure who is the most fortunate, you or Vincent. I'd say both of you are, to have found one another. X.

I am so glad that the two of you got to go to your concert! Yes, I do believe that he is a very special guy, but he has a very special lady. The two of you are wonderful together. I will never "act" my age.

You guys sound very happy. And that makes me happy. Well, and a little sad for myself. I miss that.

That was so glad you were able to make it to the concert, and to take all that time just to get there, yeah, you have a great guy there...and the both of you are too cute! Age is just a number!! I dont feel my age (well, some days I do!) but for the most part I feel very young inside, and that is just fine with me!

Love, indeed!
I'm so glad you two had a great time. :)
