I'm Never Too Old For This

1:30 AM

I'm Never Too Old For This
Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.
-Franz Kafka


I've always been an old soul, but there are things I will never be too old for.


I'm Never Too Old For This


Cotton candies, chocolates and ice cream

How can you say no to these sweet sinful treats?



Harry Potter 

I solemnly swear that I will never get tired of watching the films and reading the books again and again. I will pass on the magic, the legacy, the story and the kind of life forever changed by Harry to my children, and my children's children.

Mischief managed.




Christmas

Am I the only one around here who feels a sudden rush of nostalgia and excitement at the sight of a lighted Christmas tree and when Christmas songs start to play?




Fangirling

I'm never too old to be a fan girl. I actively follow amazing fandoms online. I research on the lives of people I admire.

I'm exhilarated when I see or get a response from the celebrities I follow.





Disney movies

I will always, always be a Disney kid.




Chick Lits and Chick Flicks

Eleanor & Park got me into a giddy overdrive. Flipped and Julie & Julia are two of my comfort movies to date.



Playing 

Board games, hide and seek, hopscotch, skipping rope, or playing pretend with my young cousins, nieces, nephews and friends' kids. You name it, I'm all for it.



Dreaming

Some people stopped dreaming when they became adults. Sad really because our dreams fire us up, keep us going, and needless to say, keep us young. What to do if your dreams already came true? Dream new dreams. Dream not only for yourself but for those around you. Set new goals. Don't stop dreaming.




Curfews

I don't have one when I'm in my place. But every time I come home for a vacation or a visit, I always stick to the curfew my parents have set since time immemorial.

No matter how old we get, we will always be their children.



Childlike Faith

Depending on God's grace. I know some people don't believe in God or have other gods, and I respect that. But for me, I can't and won't survive a day without asking for His grace and mercy. He's my Dadda.


Zac Efron

Seriously. I'm forever under his spell.

(Previous Zac Efron posts: Dear Zac, That Awkward Moment, Lessons Learned From Charlie)



Call it Peter Pan syndrome or quirks. I just can't give up these things.

What are things that make you say "I'm never too old for this"?

  3. I guess by your definition I am a young soul. Sometimes I am so young that my children think I need a caretaker. I enjoy a great majority of the same things you do. By the way my grandson was in a movie with Zac Ephron. He says the Zac is a really nice guy.

  4. I'm never too old to play, be a fangirl, dream or daydream

  5. Loved this one!
    I share your love of Christmas and Disney movies...
    And may I add being never too old for reading children's books?
    Fortunately, I have a preschooler...so I can indulge. : )
    Also...can you ever be too old for Poptarts?
    Thanks for the smile...
    Have a cozy day!

  13. Number seems interesting and tells me how you can obey your parents beyond everything. I am always with you. Go on. Rock it to the fullest. I might have missed many of your beautiful posts but I am sorry, I am kind of very busy these days preparing to jump over my last academic fence. I have proposed to do my postgraduate defense sometime in the end of this month. Good luck. Have a nice day.

  14. Amazing when one ages (GETS OLD), their 'fans' change... I no longer am a fan of movie stars or TV personalities... BUT--I am a fan of being out in nature and seeing things like sunrises, sunsets, waterfalls, etc... I am also a fan of my Backyard Birds.... And I LOVE GOD with all of my heart.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  15. Hi, I am never too old to feel young at heart even though I have aged and never too old to laugh till I cry. And I can never do without God in my life. Enjoy your post.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yeah, there's always a Peter Pan in our hearts, a child who would be forever young:) I dream and will always continue dreaming. It makes life colorful!

  20. My Dear Blogging Friend, It amuses me to hear you say you’re an old sole. May I say it a little differently … Your sole has matured more quickly than your years would tell. Myself, I’m in the 6th Decade, and from those years I can say these things … I loved Disneyland when I was a kid and loved it again just a few years ago, although the entrance admission has gone way up! :-) Cotton candies, chocolates and ice cream … anyone who can’t agree on that must be allergic! :-) Comfort movies … I have them too … have watched one at least 50 times! And will watch again. :-) Some people stopped dreaming … So true and yet, so sad. Long ago I thought about that and read something that’s always kept me going …"It's always too soon to quit!” - - Norman Vincent Peale. Lastly, and most importantly, “His grace and mercy” … Every day is a gift from God … I try to start every morning with a simple “Thank you God” prayer. Wishing the best to you, SuperLux. John

  27. I love your post! Oh and i love Big Bang Theory and I imagine Sheldon was so upset when Dr. Spock passed away and Penny probably had to sing soft kitty to him ....RIP Leonard Nimoy.

    I love so much and so much makes me jump up and down like a kid - walks at the lake, feeding the local wildlife in the yard, good movies, sad stories that bring tears to my eyes and imbue me with a passion to be kind to others and help when I can - ....my grandkids - even at 64 my grandsons can't keep up with our hiking ...almost everything in the realm of miracles, magic, love, ...just about everything. And i love your blog.

  31. This post made me smile so much! Yes, there are some things we will never been to old for. Fangirling is definitely one of them, of course. And Disney movies too. When I went to see the latest one half the room was adults and teens instead of children xD And God will always be there for us <3 Just as you said we are always our parents children, we are always his child too.

  38. **waves** Hiya Luxy....It's been a while mami....Erhmmm...I am never too old for 80% of all you mentioned...especially the disney movies...Uhhhhhh....I would probably be watching them in my 80's....lol

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hi, SuperLux! This is a great topic. I believe you never outgrow your need to play. In fact, if you adjust your thinking (reframe), you can turn any activity into play, even work. I also believe in having dreams, setting goals and planning strategies to accomplish them. When you accomplish one goal, immediately add another to your list. That way you never become complacent. You maintain your forward momentum and achieve more than you ever thought possible.

    Happy Monday, dear friend SuperLux!

  57. As they say, you're as old as you think. Age is just just a number...but hey, Zac Efron sure looks older now. :D

    ReplyDelete
  58. I adore Sheldon Cooper and all things nerdy too :)! That baby in #10 is too cute. Love his little prayer hands. I guess I would finish the sentence I'm never too old to... with "start over." I change my path often and love that age doesn't have to stop that!

  59. Dreaming! Yes, I love dreaming too :)

  70. I can say I don't think I'll ever be too old for most of this either. I'm not that major on Christmas anymore though. Maybe when I have more of a family or someone who really enjoys it I can get in to it too.

  93. Haha, so cute! I have never been a Harry Potter fan, but cotton candies, chocolates and ice cream -, yes, give em to me! I agree we should not stop dreaming, no matter what is our age. Unfortunately, life isn't easy and thus people stop dreaming when they grow up.

  120. YES to all of this. I always get so upset when I get told I'm too old for being excited about any of these things. Why is excitement a bad quality? I'll keep it thank you very much. Now I want some cotton candy and to re-read Harry Potter.
