I have a variety of signs that I am getting older, no longer does my skin look as beautiful and young as it did before. All of a sudden I turned 30 in 2011 and my body said “oh you are old now, so let’s start being a pain”. That is when I stopped being able to eat foods I had loved all of my life, my hair started sprouting greys even quicker and I swear I noticed a receding type hairline the other day, but have not really seen it again so assuming that was (hopefully) a figment of my imagination!
There is things beyond the outward signs and the inability to eat certain foods that concerns me, my teeth. Yes, I said it. My teeth. You see pictures of me where I have this beautiful full teeth smile and I love those pictures but as I get older I am noticing that my gums are starting to move away from my teeth. Does this mean I am going to need some treatment for my gums? Receding gums treatment is out there and many swear by this method than using a toothbrush, but am I really ready or in need of that right now? Please say no.
The funny thing about getting older and being 31 years old, turning 32 in October of this year – I do not feel old. My brain still functions like a responsible adult when need be but also that of a fun teen when I can be that way too. When I say teen brain it simply means that I know how to and am able to let loose and be goofy with my kids without acting like a stuffy old adult. I do not think I will ever grow up but my body has other plans – it says it’s time for it to start maturing and I just want it to slow down …. why can’t our bodies match up with where our brain is? I bet mine would if I started working out regularly again!
